Bangladesh v Australia - 1st Test - at Mirpur - 2017

- 22 - A carefully prepared home track that will certainly favour the spinners later in the match.
Batting should be relatively easy for the first couple of days but thereafter the spinners should find things increasingly in their favour.
Not much in it for the quickies at any time.

Day 1 Starting Pitch: - 5 - Normal Wicket

Day 1 Weather: - 3 - Sunny, some cloud about

Bangladesh won an important Toss and batted first on a pitch which will offer more help to the spinners as the match progresses.
A brilliant double hundred to opening batsman Tamim Iqbal was the highlight of a large Bangladesh total.
Tamim added 181 for the 4th wicket with captain Shakib Al Hasan to put their side in a strong position.
Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood were the pick of the bowlers for Australia while Nathan Lyon was poor on a pitch which had not yet begun to turn.

Tamim Iqbal celebrates his brilliant double century in the 1st Test v Australia at Mirpur

Bangladesh v Australia - 1st Test - at Mirpur - 2017

Hundreds to opener David Warner and captain Steve Smith got Australia back into the game and gave their team a 1st innings lead of 60.
The lower order fell away after a good start with the Bangladesh spinners finally getting some reward for their toil.
Mustafizur Rahman was punished for over 100 at close to 5 an over meaning their might be a change for the 2nd Test.

The Bangladesh top 4 all passed 50 in the home side's 2nd innings with Mominul Haque going on to a patient century to set Australia a victory target of 301.
Nathan Lyon took 5 wickets to partially make up for his poor first innings performance and there were 4 wickets to Steve O'Keefe as well as the wicket began to favour the spinners.
With the wicket now Taking Spin the home side appear to be in with a good chance of a win.
