Australia consider three-pronged spin attack for Bangladesh

The hosts had resumed the day on 253-6

Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim won the toss and chose to bat against Australia in the second Test in Chittagong. Bangladesh, ranked ninth in the ICC Test rankings to Australia's fourth, are hoping to shed their underdog status with a series sweep against Smith's men.

Overcoming the home team's spinners is one of Australia's biggest challenges.

Lyon removed the first four batsmen - all trapped lbw - and left-arm spinner Ashton Agar got one as a three-pronged Australian spin attack took the battle to the hosts, who are up 1-0 in the two-Test series.

Williams broke off a 72-yard run early in the second quarter before he reeled off a 61-yard touchdown run just before halftime. On Sunday, they chose to get the collapse over with in one game , rather than wait until November for their fall from grace.

The "GOAT" continues to climb the mountain of Australia's leading Test wicket-takers while sure-footedly guiding an inexperienced side towards base camp at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. "So if we do the right things I think the result will come our way". Bangladesh set up a historic victory against Australia for the first time in the previous match.

Bangladesh came agonisingly close to beating England in Chittagong past year when they needed 33 runs on the fifth day with two wickets in hand. "If the wicket is spinning it's really a good option and there is a possibility we go on with that".

The rain has stayed away in Chittagong with Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim winning the toss and electing to bat. In the lead-up to today's match Mushfiqur said that Bangladesh will continue their aggressive play and will not take the safe route, even though they can not lose the series. "Bangladesh's achievement shouldn't be devalued; it adds another major scalp to their record and confirms they are finally attaining a level of competitiveness against the top sides", Chappell, "However, Bangladesh shouldn't relax, since a wounded Australian side is a risky opponent; they'll definitely be better for having played a game - albeit one they lost - that counted". If Australia lose this clash, they would dip to all-time low ranking at No. 6, since 1988.
