Spinner Steve O'Keefe recalled to Australian cricket team for Bangladesh tour

Match Report-3

Shakib lived up to his billing as the world's number one Test all-rounder, finishing with a match haul of 10 wickets with his left-arm spin and making 84 in Bangladesh's first-innings total of 260.

Bangladesh had played Australia in the longer format just five times before this since getting the Test status in 2000 but never managed to win.

Bangladesh was just one wicket away from victory when Soumya Sarkar took an excellent catch running backwards from slip after Nathan Lyon gloved Mehedi Hasan on the sweep, but Cummins provided some late drama.

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.

Is the Night King a Greenseer?
Where did the Night King get the chains? Viserion can fly up and drop the chains at the top, and the wights can climb up and over. Although, this season has been fond of doing just that, so this might be more plausible than we want.

Skipper Steven Smith, too, put on a decent score before Shakib sent him back to the pavilion and gave Bangladesh an upper hand in the first Test.

Smith was gutted to have lost the match, and said: "Yeah, it was a great Test match". Australia now face a daunting task on a spin-friendly track where slow bowlers have claimed nine of the 13 wickets that fell on the opening day. David Warner and Steve Smith looked in great touch and they looked like sealing the game on the fourth day itself.

Australia spinner Steve O'Keefe has been handed a recall to the Test squad following an injury to paceman Josh Hazlewood. Despite the best lower-order efforts of Pat Cummins, left unbeaten on 33, Bangladesh sealed the win by 20 runs.

"At home, we believe we can beat any side", Shakib, who claimed the man-of-the-match trophy in his 50th test, told reporters.

More Voters Trust Media Over Trump
The poll surveyed 1,009 registered voters nationwide from August 13-17, and it had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

Shakib returned figures of 5-68 to help his side dismiss Australia for 217 after which Bangladesh ended the second day on 45-1. In a match which nearly came right down to the wire, the hosts Bangladesh won the Test at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka.

"We had that confidence and the belief came from the last two to three years".

Matches like these create curiosity amongst the fans and keeps on reminding us that no team is less than the other and cricket is an unpredictable game. "It was quite hard batting in the second innings here and I thought we did quite well getting 240 in the end". "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.

Trump faults GOP leaders on debt 'mess'
Raising the federal borrowing limit is a must-do item for Congress when lawmakers return to Washington from their summer break. Congress faces a mid-October deadline to increase the government's borrowing authority and avoid defaulting on US obligations.
