Tamim, Shakib in recovery stand after Cummins' early blows

Despite the relatively slow track at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, which was also marking its own landmark of hosting 150 global matches, Australians pacers were able to push the Bangladesh batsmen to the ropes through sheer pace.

Despite their lack of match practice, Maxwell, who suffered a heatstroke during training this week, believes the tactic will help the Australians against an upbeat Bangladesh unit, that has won two of their last three Tests.

THE Australian Test team, fresh from a bitter contract standoff, has prepared for tomorrow's first Test against Bangladesh by visiting slums in the capital Dhaka.

The opening Test will be the first between the two countries since Ricky Ponting's side toured Bangladesh in 2006, clean-sweeping the series 2-0. He also expressed concern about Australia's performance in sub-continent, saying they need to improve themselves.

Full pitch: Bangladesh's Tamim Iqbal at the crease on day one of the first test in Dhaka. It was the kind of cricket that has made Bangladesh an exciting team to watch. Nafees, who was part of the commentary team in the opening Test match, said this could be the beginning of a new dawn for Bangladesh as they showed how to handle pressure without losing their objective. "They batted with objective and chose their bowlers very precisely unlike before when we were not sure what we really wanted to achieve".

It was spin again five balls later, as Lyon took his 250th wicket in Tests for Australia, removing Taijul Islam for 4. Not in all conditions but in Bangladesh, we are better than them. Facing the spin-heavy attack, they held their own with both bat and ball and will now look to draw on that experience in Bangladesh, where the pitches are expected to be worse.

Mehedi Hasan removed David Warner for 8 and Usman Khawaja (1) was run out before Shakib Al Hasan got rid of Nathan Lyon for a duck at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Asked which team he thought was ahead in the game, Lyon said that that the contest was "in the balance". Ashton has obviously been on the radar for a long time and someone we see as having a pretty bright future. I want to win in India, that's big on my bucket list.

"I have always said from my first game to this game, I am not about personal success", Lyon told reporters in Dhaka.
