Spin-wary Australia faces confident Bangladesh

Cummins took the three wickets in 12 balls as Australia threatened to blow the hosts out of the Test before it had even begun, but an inspired rear-guard partnership between Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan stemmed the flow.

Dhaka: A shambolic run out was the lowlight for Australia as the tourists' top order collapsed late on day one of the first Test in Dhaka.

Though Australia are way ahead of Bangladesh in rankings, former cricketer Dean Jones says hosts Bangladesh hold the edge as the two teams clash in the first Test at Mirpur.

"You have to remind him that he's taken so many wickets because he acts like he's playing in his first Test every time he walks on to the field", Lyon's Australia teammate Mitchell Starc told cricket.com.au's "Unplayable Podcast" last week.

Trailing by 260 runs, Australia got off to a disastrous start as Mehedy got rid of Warner for eight runs before Usman Khawaja was run out by Rahim.

Dhaka: Australian captain Steve Smith said in the lead-up to this match that he wanted his four frontline bowlers to bear most, if not all of the wicket-taking responsibility, and hoped neither he nor Glenn Maxwell would need to roll the arm over.

With nine overs to survive before the close of play, Australian batsmen were unable to deal with the Bangladesh spinners on a pitch that offered considerable amount of turn and bounce.

It was a mixed day for Lyon, too, who became just the eighth bowler to reach 250 Test wickets for Australia - and the second spinner after Shane Warne - before making a duck after being sent in as nightwatchman. It was apparent that he wanted to make sure he batted there for as long as possible.

"They've got some really good spinners and they've got some really good batsmen", Khawaja said.

He averages 40 with the bat, 33 with the ball, and is No.1 on the ICC's rankings for Test allrounders, yet because he doesn't play for one of the so-called "big teams" often, Shakib Al Hasan still probably doesn't get the worldwide recognition he deserves. "They bowl stump to stump and put pressure on your defence so I suppose that's one thing we will work on".

Trump's Interior Department eyes changes for national monuments
Zinke delivered the report to President Trump today, but established no timeline for when it would be made public. Referring to the "massive federal land grab" of his predecessors, Trump said, "It never should have happened".

Hasan and Shakib picked up a wicket apiece. The Tigers are playing with two seamers and a three-pronged spin attack.

Speed demon Cummins earlier defied the draining 75 per cent humidity with a lethal opening spell to leave Bangladesh reeling at 3-10.

"They have some batting left too, so we have to focus well".

As recently as the lead-in to Australia's tour to India earlier this year, where the 29-year-old pocketed his career-best return of 8-50 in the second Test at Bengaluru, questions were aired about his potency on Asian pitches, against the game's most accomplished wranglers of spin bowling.
