Aussie spinners strike after Shakib, Tamim fifties

Matt Renshaw and Steven Smith were on 6 and 3 respectively.

However, Australia then made an abysmal start in reply, David Warner, Usman Khawaja and nightwatchman Lyon all falling cheaply in the nine overs that remained.

On a pitch offering turn and plenty of bounce for the spinners, Bangladesh were unable to bat out the opening day, Nathan Lyon (3-79) and fellow slow bowler Ashton Agar (3-46) sharing the last six wickets after Tamim had fallen to the part-time off-breaks of Glenn Maxwell.

"There's a long way to go in this Test match and this Test series".

Shakib went on to make 84 off 133 deliveries, which included 11 boundaries, before he was caught by Steve Smith at slip off the bowling of Nathan Lyon.

It was a disastrous end to the day for Australia, who had been well-placed after skittling Bangladesh with time to spare, led by three wickets in two overs from speed demon Pat Cummins.

Young spinner Mehidy Hasan has been a revelation, while wicket keeper and captain Mushfiqur Rahim along with veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan have kept things in check for the Tigers. But, of course, he will need somebody to stay out there with him.

Tamim, who is Bangladesh's highest scorer in both Test and ODIs, showed he belongs in a class of his own as he did not lose his composure while seeing off the pacers during the crucial early period.

Finally, Cypress Capital Group acquired a new stake in shares of Ulta Beauty during the second quarter worth $218,000. The specialty retailer reported $1.83 EPS for the quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $1.78 by $0.05.

Khawaja looks set to regain his place in the side after Shaun Marsh was preferred in India, and Ashton Agar is expected to join Nathan Lyon as the second spinner.

Part of the visitor's drills this time has included batting in the nets without a front pad, a lay created to emphasise the importance of using the bat in order to avoid leg-before decisions against the slow bowlers. Rain is predicted on all five days of the Test, so the chances of a result will depend on how quickly the newly-laid outfield can dry - usually, the drainage is good. The wicket of Mehedi, who gifted a simple catch to Peter Handscomb at short leg, meant Lyon moved past Richie Benaud as Australia's second most prolific Test spinner, behind only Shane Warne. "I won't say in all conditions, but in our conditions, we are better than them", said Shakib.

"I've always said that I'm not about personal success but I woke up to a message from my mum and dad", Lyon said.

Asked which team he thought was ahead in the game, Lyon said that that the contest was "in the balance".

Questioned in the lead-up to the match about the prospect of passing Benaud's mark, Lyon had played down the looming achievement, but he revealed on Sunday evening that his family cared about the milestone.

"We have seen them do it before in Sri Lanka and India".

"We improved, but we didn't win the series".
