Bangladesh stun Australia as underdogs triumph

Bangladesh stun Australia as underdogs triumph”

Zimbabwe cricket national team captain Graeme Cremer has been inspired by Bangladesh's sensational and maiden 20-run win over Australia in the opening Test in Dhaka on Wednesday.

Warner tempered his natural aggression but did not altogether abandon it, as was evident from the 16 boundaries and one six in his belligerent 112.

Warner survived a review before the southpaw brought up his 19th test century, a second in Asia.

But Shakib took the wicket of Warner and the floodgates opened from there onwards as the Australia middle and lower order lost their way to eventually lose the game by 20 runs.

Steve O'Keefe was initially left out of the Australian squad that is touring Bangladesh.

The tourists were reeling at 199 for seven at lunch, with their rapidly-diminishing hopes resting on Glenn Maxwell, who was batting on 14 with Pat Cummins on two, and Australia still needing 66 runs for an improbable victory.

Seventeen years since granted the test status, there are still whispers whether Bangladesh belong in the elite group but skipper Mushfiqur Rahim remains satisfied with the progress the team has made under his leadership.

"The boys are all hurting with the criticism you get", he said.

Tigers' spinner Shakib Al Hassan walked away with the man-of-the-match gong and $1 500 richer courtesy of his 10-wicket haul after taking a five-for in either innings as he architected the home side's historic victory over the Baggy Greens. "That's the belief we have".

Following the game, Shakib said, "My wife is my biggest motivation".

Australia have come under fire following their first-Test loss and Lehmann said they only have themselves to blame.

"It was good to see the smiles on all the Bangladesh players, staff and fans after the match". "If we had contributions from everyone we probably would have won the game". [Tuesday] I thought defeating Australia will be hard as they had the upper hand.

The second Test will be played in Chittagong from September 4-8. "The way the wicket was, how many overs did the quicks bowl for them (in the second innings)?" asked Lehmann.
