Australia's Batsmen Are Crumbling Again In First Test Against Bangladesh

Australia had resumed on 109-2, needing another 156 runs for victory, but all eight wickets to fall on day four were claimed by spinners.

The no 3 lasted no longer than Renshaw before losing his wicket, managing to equal his first innings score of 1 until Shakib Al Hasan found the top edge for Taijul Islam to track and catch at deep backward square.

Renshaw survived nearly two sessions, facing 94 balls for his 45 runs while Australia lost five wickets, until he edged to Soumya Sarkar at slip.

With the 20-run win, Bangladesh take a 1-0 series lead.

A dejected Smith said his men could have performed better with the bat in the first innings when they scored 217, since the bounce and spin proved especially devilish the second time around.

The loss of the hardiest of Australia's pace bowlers just a few months before they host England in an Ashes series around the New Year is a blow, however.

Australia had three spinners in their squad already with veteran tweaker Nathan Lyon and left-armer Ashton Agar getting the nod ahead of uncapped leggie Mitchell Swepson for the first Test. Umpire Aleem Dar turned down a muted appeal from the bowler before skipper Steve Smith decided on a review.

"Don't know if someone believed in us today or not, but during the drinks break, I told the rest of the team "whoever has come to the ground today believes that we will win and so we can't let these guys down", Shakib exclaimed. "The partnership between Tamim and Shakib set the game for them". Smith also was dismissed by a similar delivery which ended his innings of 37, lasting for 99 balls.

Glenn Maxwell was the final obstacle and Shakib completed his five-wicket performance, disturbing the batsman's wicket with a delivery that kept low and spun sharply in the first ball after lunch.

Captain Steve Smith has lamented Australia's inability to learn from previous missteps on the subcontinent as Bangladesh stormed to an historic first Test win in Dhaka.

"I am going to miss having dinner with him every night, but we have got Jackson Bird waiting in the wings, which is great".
