Skipper Steven Smith, arguably the greatest batsman in the world, fell right after Warner’s dismissal, for 37. Following his dismissal, there were hardly any partnerships from the tail till almost the very end.

Australia were bundled out for 244. Shakib was also adjudged Man of the Match for his 10 wickets and his first-innings 84.
