Bangladesh creates history. Australia's first test defeat ever against the tigers

David Warner has buried his subcontinent demons to give Australia the chance to pull off a miracle win over Bangladesh in the first Test in Dhaka.

They appeared to be coasting towards their fifth consecutive Test win over the minnows when Warner and Smith resumed the day on 109 for two.

New man Nathan Lyon (12) and Pat Cummins (33) put together a few overs of capable defensive work, but avenues to runs were nearly non-existent.

A day after rescuing Bangladesh from a top-order collapse with the bat, the spinner's haul was pivotal as Australia crashed to 217 all out to concede a first-innings deficit of 43. He picked up ten wickets in the entire match, apart from scoring 84 and 5 in both the innings.

So often Australia's saviour, Steve Smith showed that even he is fallible when he threw his wicket away at the worst possible time during the first Test against Bangladesh. Warner looked comfortable with his back foot punches or coming down the track to hit Shakib Al Hasan for a six without any fear in the last hour of the day.

Bangladesh set Australia a 265-run target after being dismissed for 221 in its second innings.

"It was a great test match". The flamboyant batsman found detractors on the field too as the close-in fielders and the 'keeper tried to get under his skin with a few words and taunts.

During fight week, Malignaggi and McGregor had a verbal confrontation that blazed around the internet. But he still had some strong opinions about the fight, which gave Mayweather his 50th win.

"Everyone [in our camp] who came to the press had said the same thing, that we can beat teams, doesn't matter who we are playing against". Four overs later Smith followed, caught behind for 37 when he edged Shakib, and from there the pressure was firmly back on the Australians.

Earlier on Wednesday, David Warner notched his 19th Test century in just 64 Tests - and potentially one of his most important - as Australia looked like they might be heading for a tough victory. The only way to improve his 50th Test would be to pick up another wicket for a 10-for in a famous Bangladesh win.

Pat Cummins nearly pulled off a miracle for Australia with a six-hitting 33 not out, but Josh Hazlewood was trapped lbw 20 runs short of victory to spark raucous celebrations on the pitch and in the stands.

"It was a great test match, credit to Bangladesh the way they played", Smith said.

Pat Cummins, who was the only other specialist seamer included in Australia's side for the first Test, admitted that the loss of Hazlewood is a huge blow for Australia.

"We let ourselves down in the first innings".

So what now? Well, there's the second Test in Chittagong starting on September 4. A second defeat would see them lose another place.
