Would have edged the aussies just about favourites overnight, just fell away when losing 28/5 in 11.3 overs

Shakib surely clear MOTM? 84 in the 1st innings, making that 260 the biggest total in the match, and 5/68 and perhaps more importantly 5/85 just as the aussies looked set for victory

Matthew Wade is like Tim Zoehrer minus the talent and killer instinct.

I see that SOK replaces Hazelwood for the second test.

Was he picked in the squad? If not, will he get to Bangladesh in time for the 2nd match?

Yeah I think they'll start as favourites or near favourites at home against anyone bar India.

Commiserations to David Warner for finishing on the losing side despite being only the second ever Australian specialist batsman to score a test hundred in Bangladesh

That was a tight finish.

Well done Bangladesh.

Well done Australia in getting so close to beating an opponent they haven't beaten - home or away - since April 2006.

To be fair Australia haven't beaten Bangladesh -home or away - since 2006 either.

It will depend on how the wicket looks, but it seems likely O'Keeffe will come in directly for Hazelwood, which means that Cartwright would almost certainly play in place of Khawaja.

I think Aus will be better for close loss, and I give them a chance in the next test, but Bangladesh must start favourites.

Toss as always very important but seems Bangladesh currently producing wickets the most conducive to close test matches. No reason why 250 shouldn't be seen as a competitive first innings total, rather than preparing wickets where teams are expected to push well past 400.

Saying that, the team batting first in the next match will probably score 600+.

Tammin said in an interview that Bangladesh used produce flat wickets so they could remain in the contest for longer, but now with their belief that they can win matches that there's a bigger push for result pitches.

Hopefully it's a close test and Aus get up, but losing 0-2 to Bangladesh is not the utter disaster it would have been 10 years ago.

Maybe, although it's pretty depressing how poor non-Asian sides have become against spin bowling in the sub-continent and UAE.

Bangladesh have lost 4/4 to spin this morning vs Oz.

The superiority of Aussie spinners to English ones? Even though Mo took a 5fer out there last year and Rashid didn't do that badly there.

Hard to tell just from the scorecard but I would guess that it was a good toss to win and that Bangladesh are getting themselves into a decent position here.
