Smith gone, Aussies 2-111 in second Test

Smith gone, Aussies 2-111 in second Test

Warner was batting on 88 with Handscomb on 69 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. Warner put in all he had to churn out a gritty hundred in the second innings to take Australia agonisingly close to their target in a Test which they lost by a mere 20 runs.

Warner chalked up 123, having reached the milestone off 209 balls, in an uncharacteristically circumspect knock which included just seven boundaries.

In an occasion as rare as the present one where the hosts have gone into the second Test with a series lead against a top Test side, Bangladesh clearly looked unimaginative and lacked the steam to stop Warner and Co. on a slow moving yet crucial second day.

It may be recalled here that during his last Test series in the subcontinent against India Warner had struggled a lot.

Lyon took the new ball and made an immediate impact, trapping Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Soumyar Sarkar and Mominul Haque leg before.

Offspinner Nathan Lyon earlier claimed 7-94 as Australia wrapped up Bangladesh's innings for 305 late in the morning session.

Warner has a tremendous record as far as getting tons is concerned.

In brutal heat that Australia players have nearly universally declared the most oppressive they've played in, Warner struck just five boundaries on the way to his hundred.

The Australians are undertaking their first test tour to Bangladesh since 2006, after a previous tour was delayed because of security concerns.

"He only hit four boundaries today which is unusual for him".

"I knew Greg Ritchie was in next, and I knew there would be some easy quip I could make to fire him up, so I said, "Yeah well that's okay mate, if you want to go off now we'll get someone out here tough, we'll get a Queenslander out here".

Warner's 20th Test century - following on from his 19th in Dhaka when he was the only Aussie batsman to reach 50 - was yet another stamp of his class. "He's been excellent, especially in the last couple of innings". He will always be known as an attacking player.

Earlier, Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim added just six runs to his overnight 62 not out but Nasir Hossain hit 45 to help them past 300.

"And I just showed myself and proved to myself that I am capable of doing it on turning tracks".

The 26-year-old batsman of Australian cricket team lost massive body weight while batting against Bangladesh in the second Test match at Chittagong.
