Bangladesh Register Historic Test Win Over Australia

Bangladesh and Australia captain Mushfiqur Rahim and Steve Smith during the toss

Meanwhile, Cummins also heaped praise on opener and vice-captain David Warner as he struck an unbeaten 75 to leave Australia just 156 runs away from victory going into the fourth day.

Bangladesh, ranked a lowly ninth in Tests, are seeking their first-ever win over Australia in what is only their fifth Test meeting.

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

"We made a few errors, a few guys getting out in ways they've got out before and not learning from their mistakes, which was a bit disappointing", Smith told reporters after play. "I think it's a big statement", said Mushfiqur after the historic win over Australia in the first Test at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

A similar triumph in next week's second and final Test in Chittagong would result in Australia tumbling to No.6 in the world Test rankings. A planned tour of Bangladesh by Australia in 2015 was cancelled due to security concerns after an Italian charity worker was shot dead in Dhaka, and the Islamic State group claimed responsibility.

Warner scored 112 runs but finally, it was Shakib who got him out on Day 4 and brought Bangladesh back into the game.

"It was a great Test match".

Australia's middle order collapse was typified when Glenn Maxwell was bowled out on the first ball after lunch with plenty of time to chase down Bangladesh's 264 total. He had earlier scored an attacking 84 on the first day on a tough pitch and following it up by becoming only the fourth Test bowler in history to take a five-wicket haul against all current Test playing nations. But he ran out of partners after Taijul Islam (3-60) trapped Josh Hazlewood leg-before as Australia were bowled out for 244.

"England were a strong side and Australia may not have a good record in the subcontinent in the recent past, but they did have their best players in the side".

After the match, Shakib took the microphone and spoke to the crowd in Bengali, saying it was their belief and the faith of their supporters that carried them through.

Slow left-armer Ashton Agar ended a confident 43-run opening stand when he had Soumya Sarkar (15) caught by Usman Khawaja at long-on after several attempts.
