Australia v Bangladesh: Security scare as bus carrying tourists attacked

Storm swirls around Australian Cricket selections

Storm swirls around Australian Cricket selections

When Sky Bet's 8/13 favourites Australia resumed on 225-2, overnight batsmen Warner and Peter Handscomb shared a 152-run partnership. He took breaks, as the humidity and heat tested him several times during the day.

The Chittagong pitch offered just enough bounce for Mustafizur to make use of the bouncer, while at the same time gaining a modicum of reverse swing.

Nathan Lyon (five for 77) claimed four early wickets as Bangladesh slipped to 117 for five but Mushfiqur (62 not out) and Sabbir (66) lifted them to 253 for six at the close.

Drawing level with skipper Steve Smith as well as another Sydneysider in Mark Waugh on 20 Test tons, Warner's innings represents the most measured ton of his nearly six-year career in the Baggy Green.

Expansive opener Warner was unable to find the boundary with the frequency he is used to, making just four in total and having to wait 74 balls between his second and third. He now has 77 wickets in Asia - the second-most for an Australian.

Unperturbed by Kohli's exit, Rohit continued the pace of the innings along with Hardik Pandya (19), who was promoted up the order. Chasing 239 to win, India opener Ajinkya Rahane only made five runs before he was sent packing by Lasith Malinga for five runs.

No players or officials were injured but Cricket Australia did confirm that the incident was being taken seriously and they had beefed up their security arrangements as a result. Soon after the Day-1 play wrapped up, the visiting team bus along with the players was on the way back to the hotel. They spread the field quite a lot so it was hard for him to hit boundaries and play on the basis of how he (normally) plays. "The way he has adapted and actually gone and batted in a different way in the last couple of innings has been spectacular for David". A direct hit from super all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan - man of the match in the first Test for his bowling and batting - saw Peter Handscomb stranded at the bowler's end.

Warner's 20th Test century - following on from his 19th in Dhaka when he was the only Aussie batsman to reach 50 - was yet another stamp of his class. Cummins fell lbw to Mehedi shortly after, a successful review from the Tigers reinforced by Bangladesh's Nasir Hossain, who could face disciplinary action after raising his index finger while standing next to the umpire.

"I'm doing myself and the team as many favours as I can by trying to put on runs, as everyone else is".

David Warner has finally put behind his frightful run in the Indian subcontinent with the bat, scoring his second consecutive Test century against Bangladesh in the ongoing Test series on Wednesday.
