Bangladesh created history when they beat Australia in the first of the two-Test series at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka on Wednesday. Not only did they take an unassailable 1-0 lead in the series, but also registered their first ever Test win over Australia. Bangladesh had earlier lost every single one of the 4 Tests between the countries. The match was nicely set up by Tamim Iqbal, who scored 149 runs in the match, while Shakib Al Hasan scored 84 and claimed 10 wickets to push Australia to the back foot, allowing Bangladesh to achieve the historic feat. Let us have a look at some of the talking points from the match. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Bangladesh vs Australia 2017, 1st Test at Dhaka

Tamim Iqbal’s twin half-centuries in both innings: As always, Tamim stepped up when Bangladesh needed him to. In the first innings he scored 71 to rescue Bangladesh from 10 for 3. In the second, he hung around for a gritty 78, and Bangladesh collapsed almost immediately after he fell. In short, he made sure the spinners had a total big enough to bowl at.

Shakib Al Hasan’s consistent all-round performance: Be it with bat or ball or both, Shakib manages to contribute in every Bangladesh success story. This was no exception. He top-scored with 85 in the first innings and claimed 10 wickets in the match. He also became the fourth to take five-wicket hauls against nine countries, after Muttiah Muralitharan, Rangana Herath and Dale Steyn. The former world number one all-rounder is showing no sign of stopping or fading down, as he continues his brilliance anywhere in the world, while he undoubtedly is one of the modern legends of Bangladesh cricket.

Mushfiqur Rahim’s all-round show: Mushfiqur decided to move in with a spin-dominated attack, picking Shakib, Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan. He contributed with 41 in the second innings before getting run out in the most unfortunate fashion. And he intelligently rotated the bowlers, especially spinners, and the field placements were accurate.

Nathan Lyon, the lone wolf in Australian bowling attack: Ashton Agar and Pat Cummins had their moments, but it was really Nathan Lyon who made the impact. He took 9 wickets in the match (including 6 for 82 in the second innings). He also became the eighth Australian (and second spinner, after Shane Warne) to reach the 250-wicket mark.

David Warner’s classy innings of 112: Warner undoubtedly played the innings of the Test. His 19th Test ton rejuvenated Australia’s spirit during the chase. They always had a chance with Warner around, and it was his wicket that triggered the collapse. His 112 is the second-highest score by an Australian opener in the fourth innings in Asia, after Bob Simpson’s 115 against Pakistan in Karachi in 1964.

Bangladesh’s historic maiden win against Australia: There had been 4 Tests between Australia and Bangladesh till date, and Australia had won all 4. However, Bangladesh came out on top in the fifth attempt. Although the margin was slender (20 runs) it was a win nevertheless. It was also their narrowest margin, going past their 95-run win in 2009 at Arnos Vale.
