Bangladesh 205-8 at tea in Australia Test”

Bangladesh, ranked a lowly ninth in Tests, are seeking their first-ever win over Australia in what is only their fifth Test meeting.

Bangladesh made 260 in their first innings and Australia 217.

The quick was being assessed but the Australian team manager said he was unlikely to return before lunch.

Check back here for updates from the first Test at Dhaka as the match unfolds.

In all, Bangladesh added 88 runs in the session for the loss of those two wickets, and with the top-scorer from the first innings - Shakib Al Hasan - still to come, Australia will have their work cut out for them to keep the target to something within reasonable reach. Australia are placed fourth.

Mehedi scored a vital 17 runs to take the lead to 248 runs for Australia, in first of the two-Test series.

It wasn't that the pitch didn't play tricks earlier in the day.

The good news is that Aussie spinner Nathan Lyon continued his mighty effort with the ball from day one to take six wickets as the visitors bowled Bangladesh all-out for 221 with a lead of 264 just after the tea break.

Yet the Tigers looked in control for the most part.

Hello and a warm welcome to Day 3 of the opening Test. His knock eventually ended on 78 after a video referral found he had gloved a bouncer from Cummins.
