Australia were on top on the opening day of the second and final Test against hosts Bangladesh at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong on Monday, courtesy Nathan Lyon‘s 3 for 29. It seemed a one-sided affair for the Australians initially in the innings before Bangladesh managed to put stern resistance to stem Australia’s early momentum. However, Australia still managed to stay on top at the stroke of lunch, as the hosts lost 3 wickets in the opening session, which opened up possibilities an interesting post-lunch session.

Mushfiqur Rahim earlier won the toss and elected to bat first. Bangladesh brought in Mominul Haque for Shafiul Islam. For Australia, Steve O’Keefe coming and Hilton Cartwright replaced Josh Hazlewood and Usman Khawaja, clearly indicating that Australia are counting on their spinners to level the series.

Bangladesh were off to a shaky start. They lost Tamim Iqbal, trapped by Lyon for 9. The score read 13 for 1 at that stage. Tamim had received a lifeline in the previous over when Glenn Maxwell dropped him off Pat Cummins. However, he failed to capitalise on the lapse and was unable to repeat the heroics from the opening Test at Dhaka. FULL CRICKET UPDATES: Bangladesh vs Australia 2017, 2nd Test at Chittagong, Day 1

Following the dismissal of Imrul, Soumya and Mominul Haque took charge of the innings till lunch. They contributed to a crucial 49-run stand as the batsmen, especially Soumya, took an aggressive approach for a few overs.
