    BAN WIN!!!! That’s it, Bangladehs have draw the first blood in the series as they take an unassialable 1-0 lead in the series, beating Australia by 20 runs, thanks to Shakib’s 10-wicket haul in the match. Australia have some good homework to do before the 2nd Test at Chittagong. This is also BAN’s first Test win against AUS.

    GONE!!!! The nineth wicket is down as Lyon falls for mere 12 to Mehidy Hasan after being caught brilliantly by Soumya Sarkar, while Josh Hazlewood is the new man in. It’s more or less game over for the Aussies now as thye need 37 more to win.

    No harm done following the dismissal of Maxwell, as Cummins abd yon take charge of the innings and well possess the ability of steering Australia home form here. Bangladesh still have a job to be done, as AUS need 47 more to win.

  • 12:14 PM IST

    GONE!!!! First ball after lunch, and Maxwell is clean bowled for mere 14, as Nathan Lyon makes his way in. Can Australia still edge out, with 67 more needed?

  • 11:22 AM IST

    GONE!!!! The same story continues as it’s Agar this time, who falls for a mere couple to Taijul, after being caught and bowled, while Pat Cummins makes his way in. Bangladesh are back in the game as they seriously eye their chances to draw first blood in the series. Australia need 70 more to win.

  • 11:09 AM IST

    GONE!!!! Australia seem to be crumbling as Wade is the latest to depart for mere four, after being trapped leg-before again to Shakib, while Ashton Agar is the new man in. Still anybody’s game, but the next few overs will decide it. AUS need 73 more.

  • 10:54 AM IST

    GONE!!!! And it’s Handscomb this time, who falls for mere 15 to Taijul after being caught brilliantly by Soumya Sarkar at first slip, as Matthew Wade makes his way in. Still anybody’s game as AUS need 78 more to win. Who’s your money on?

  • 10:44 AM IST

    GONE!!!! Another big one, and it’s the skipper this time, as Smith falls for 37 to Shakib again after being caught behind by Rahim, while Glenn Maxwell is the new man in. Still anybody’s game as AUS need 94 more to win.

  • 10:22 AM IST

    GONE!!!! Finally the breakthrough the Bangladeshis were looking for as the dangerous Warner falls for 112 after being trapped leg-before to Shakib. A commendable innings at pressure comes to an end, while Peter Handscomb makes his way in. Can Bangladesh capitalise form here and get done with the Australian innings?

  • 10:08 AM IST

    TON FOR WARNER!!!! What a knock by Warner under pressure, as if not completely, he surely has brought Australia back in the game as they now stand a good chance to win this tie. Can he stay back until the end to see Australia home? AUS need 119 more to win.

  • 9:53 AM IST

    Staeady start to the early morning session of Day 4 as the Australiian batsmen in the form of Warner and Smith have perfectly resumed from where they left off last evening. Can Bangladesh grab some quick wickets to put Australia back under pressure? AUS need 138 more to win.

Australia need 156 more to win

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of the first Test between Bangladesh and Australia at Mirpur. I am Ayush Gupta and I will be providing with the live updates and some nice tweets from the Twitter world. The teams are locking horns in the longest format after 11 long years and a result is likely. Nathan Lyon staged an Australian comeback in a Test majorly dominated by Bangladesh. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Bangladesh vs Australia 2017, 1st Test at Dhaka

Electing to bat, Bangladesh put up 260, courtesy resilient knocks from Tamim Iqbal (71) and Shakib Al Hasan (84). Both the Bangladeshi stalwarts made their 50th Test memorable with Shakib picking a five-for to dismiss Australia for 217 and Tamim adding 78 in the second innings. However, it was Lyon (6 for 82) who had the final say on Day Three, putting Australia back on track by skittling out the hosts for 221. Set a target of 265, Australia were reduced to 28 for 2 in the 10th over with the spin-twin Shakib and Mehedi Hasan claiming a wicket apiece.

But there was no stopping David Warner, who found his mojo back and struck a counterattacking 96-ball 75 and remained unbeaten with skipper Steven Smith (25). At 109 for 2, Australia are firmly placed in a favourable position with two of their best batters in the crease. However, a few wickets could well change the equation. West Indies seemingly pulled off an impossible by beating England by 4 wickets to win the Leeds Test, it may well be Bangladesh’s day today. All in all, we have a match in hands.
