Resuming on a precarious 18-3, the tourists soon lost captain Steve Smith, when he was bowled by Mehidy Hasan for eight.

How David Warner smashed his Asia demons to breathe life into Australia's first Test hopes.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry's live coverage of the first Test between Bangladesh and Australia at Mirpur. Nathan Lyon staged an Australian comeback in a Test majorly dominated by Bangladesh.

Two balls later, the batsman was caught in the gully by Peter Handscomb.

That was nothing though compared to the way Khawaja departed.

Shakib confirmed his status as the world's top-ranked allrounder across all three formats, taking five-wicket hauls in both digs after top-scoring with 84 in the first innings.

Not since Ricky Ponting guided his team to a target of 307 against Bangladesh in nearby Fatullah in 2006 has Australia scaled such heights in the region. Much like an Australian phone charger, he appears to be of little use on the subcontinent.

Many pounded the table for Khawaja to be given time and patience in the first-drop role, but on this tour he looks more susceptible to the axe than Wade given the lack of a genuine, viable keeping option in the squad. Tamim was given not out on field, but that was overturned on review.

O'Keefe, who was Australia's standout bowler in the Tests in India was left out of the original squad following a series of fine by the Cricket Australia and New South Wales boards for misconduct and making offensive comments when intoxicated.

By the close of play, Australia's management said that the right-arm bowler will bat if he is required to on day four but will return home after the game.

Australia recalled left-armer Aston Agar to form two-man spin attack with Nathan Lyon.

Despite two early wickets to Lyon the Tigers steadied before lunch and looked in control. Tamim Iqbal and Taijul Islam will begin the day's proceeding with 45/1 on the scorecard.

Pacer Pat Cummins (33*) tried till the end and played some lusty blows to give his side of improving their poor record in the sub-continent.
