Bangladesh vs Australia 2nd Test Day 2 Highlights Today 5 Sep 2017

Watch BAN vs AUS cricket highlights today o 5-9-2017. Australia vs Bangladesh second Test day 2 highlights. Australia’s captain Steven Smith played around a straight delivery from Taijul Islam just as the visitors appeared to be setting a platform to surpass the Bangladesh first innings total on the second afternoon of the second Test in Chittagong.


Having lost Matt Renshaw early on to an excellent catch by the home team captain Mushfiqur Rahim, Smith and his deputy David Warner looked largely untroubled in adding 93 runs in good time, before Smith appeared to lose concentration and left an inviting gap for Taijul’s slow left-arm spin to skid through into middle stump. It was a moment that undid the good work from earlier, with only five specialist batsmen chosen for Australia in this match.

Nathan Lyon’s dismissal of Mushfiqur in his first over of the day, and then that of the last man Taijul Islam, had given the offspinner handsome figures of 7 for 94, yet at the same time suggested that Australia’s top order had their work cut out in reply – Smith’s men must win the Test to avoid handing Bangladesh only the fourth series victory in their history.


Highlights will be available shortly.
