Australia not panicking after hard day one - Lyon

Chappell I'm not convinced Wade is our best keeper

Both players have regularly appeared in limited overs matches against Australia, and Shakib has played in the Big Bash League, however the passing Australian fan could understandably have been relatively unfamiliar with the pair.

But any thoughts of a quick run through Bangladesh's middle order were assuaged when Tamim Iqbal sallied forth to hammer Lyon inside out over the cover boundary - an audacious shot to play at 18 for 3.

Pat Cummins, Nathan Lyon and Ashton Agar took three wickets each to wrap up the Bangladesh innings despite half-centuries from Tamim Iqbal and Shakib al Hasan.

Bangladesh were 190-5 at tea on the opening day of the first Test against Australia at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Sunday.

On a dry and dusty deck that had been expected to heavily favour spin, Cummins took just five balls to strike, squaring up Soumya Sarker with a well-pitched delivery which was caught by Peter Handscomb at gully.

Shakib, Mehedi and Taijul took all 20 wickets when Bangladesh recorded their first-ever Test win over England by 108 runs in October.

The 24-year-old Cummins returned to dismiss the scoreless duo of Imrul Kayes and Sabbir Rahman caught behind, the leaden-footed batsmen paying the price for playing away from their body. Tottering at 10/3, the hosts were in a real scare of getting embarrassed, but their two experienced batsmen bailed them out.

When will live coverage of the match start?

Mushfiqur Rahim appears likely to keep wickets, which would mean Liton Das misses out.

Friday's Arsenal transfer rumours: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere feature
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Arsenal from Southampton as a promising youngster, full of untapped potential. Arsenal are reportedly set to hold crunch talks with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this week to resolve his future.

"In India (earlier this year) he really bowled so well, he probably out-bowled the Indian spinners on their home turf".

Tamim was the slower of the two, especially in the first session, but even then he attacked Lyon - the main threat as the first-choice off-spinner on a spinning wicket.

He eventually reached his 50 from 119 balls but by then he had put his stamp on the innings - playing his attacking brand of cricket as he hit three sixes charging down to Nathan Lyon.

Bangladesh, formerly a laughing stock of the cricketing world have made inroads over the last 12 months.

It had former Bangladesh cricketer Shahriar Nafees excited too.

Drawn Test series against England and Sri Lanka, as well as a semi-final appearance at the Champions Trophy have all been positive for the sub-continent nation.

"I'll tell you here right now, I'm never taking over Shane Warne", Lyon said. Through it all, he has steadily learned and added to his repertoire, most pointedly developing after a poor tour of Sri Lanka in 2016 to excel in India and so set the scene for his Dhaka milestone.

They may be closer to the big league than ever before, but Bangladesh certainly are showing that they can not be treated as mere pushovers anymore.

Now ranked fourth in the world, the former top-ranked team risk slipping further down the International Cricket Council ratings if it loses either Test, or draw both matches.
