On a rain-hit day, Australia piled on 377 for 9 at the close of Day Three of the second Test at Chittagong. A day that was 13 overs short, Australia managed to just nose ahead by 72 runs with Glenn Maxwell batting on 25 and Nathan Lyon who is yet to begin his innings.

David Warner made 123 runs to help Australia edge past Bangladesh’s first innings total of 305 before the hosts struck back to restrict their lead to 72 when bad light stopped play at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. Off-spinner Mehedi Hasan and birthday boy Mustafizur Rahman took three wickets each for the hosts, who lead the two-match series 1-0 after winning the Dhaka Test by 20 runs. Earlier in the day, Warner and Peter Handscomb kept the hosts at bay. The conditions had not deteriorated and an anxious Warner sailed to his century.

Bangladesh were also sloppy on the field by dropping opportunities. Mehedi Hasan dropped a sitter at the gully of Maxwell off Mustafizur. However, the pacer nipped off Warner when he sent the delivery straight to Imrul Kayes at leg gully.

At the stroke of tea, Bangladesh found their rhythm back as Mehedi removed Hilton Cartwright. Despite the jolts, Australia managed to take a lead by 16 runs.
