Shakib, Tamim create history for BD in maiden Test triumph over Australia

Ashton Agar returns to Australia Test line-up
The 20-run victory at Shere Bangla National Stadium came five months after Bangladesh secured their first test win over Sri Lanka and a month before the first anniversary of their maiden triumph over England in the longest form of the game.
Not since Ricky Ponting guided his team to a target of 307 against Bangladesh in nearby Fatullah in 2006 has Australia scaled such heights in the region. However, Shakib continued his record-breaking match when he cleaned up Glen Maxwell in the first ball of the session.
Pat Cummins dismissed Tamim with a sharply-rising delivery before Lyon mowed down the middle order. Lyon notched up the 200 by sweeping Shakib while Cummins hung in to reduce the deficit.
Australia did well to make the contest so close after starting the second innings needing 265 to win on a deteriorating pitch.
Compared to previous tours to this part of the world, Australia's batsmen looked reasonably well-equipped to handle a spin barrage from the energetic Bangladeshis.
Having started Monday in a perilous position at 18-3, things quickly got worse for Australia as skipper Smith (8) misjudged the flight of a delivery from Mehedi Hasan (3-62) and was bowled through the gate.
GOP Rep. to Trump: McCain, Flake are 'your team'
Trump are not enemies and downplayed his concern over a pro-Trump primary challenger when he runs for reelection next year. Pete Wilson, a Trump supporter, believes Trump and McConnell need to meet privately to air their grievances.
Bangladesh could have run away with the game by piling on the runs, especially in the absence of Josh Hazlewood. The batsman opted for a review but umpire Richard Kettleborough informed the batsman that the team had no reviews.
Shakib claimed 5-85 and was the obvious man-of-the-match choice for his first innings score of 84 and a 10-wicket haul. Warner continued to tackle the spinners admirably and he moved into the 90s with three boundaries in one over off Taijul Islam.
Smith was on 28 when Tamim Iqbal spilled him at mid-on but Shakib was lurking round the corner with his left-arm spin to change the complexion of the match.
O'Keefe, who has taken 33 Test wickets at an average of 27.30, was in April banned from playing for New South Wales in this year's domestic one-day competition and fined for becoming intoxicated and making highly inappropriate comments at an official function.
The Australians appeared to have made strides with their batting in Asian conditions during a 2-1 series loss to India earlier this year, but Smith acknowledged there was considerable work still to be done.
