Bangladesh 83-5 at lunch in 2nd Australia Test

Bangladesh 83-5 at lunch in 2nd Australia Test

Earlier, Australia could not add to their overnight score as Lyon fell for a duck and the tourists were all out for 377 at Chittagong's Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. However, in the second innings, Bangladesh managed to get rid of Warner cheaply. They draw the series winning the final match. This is also Sri Lanka's first whitewash at home in a 3-Test series since losing to Australia in 2004.

Players routinely dirty their hands before bowling, but ICC rules strictly prohibit players from changing state or characteristics of the ball.

Handscomb perished in his eagerness to help Warner reach the 100-mark when he sprinted for a single, was sent back after a few strides and made a desperate drive but could not beat Shakib Al Hasan's direct throw from square leg.

Prolific opener Tamim then had a brain fade, dancing down the wicket to a springing Lyon delivery and being stumped by Matthew Wade.

It was a missed opportunity for the hosts, who have still only claimed Test series wins against Zimbabwe and a weakened West Indies in their 17-history in the game's longest format. Lyon had picked up 5 wickets.

After a poor start to the match, Bangladesh cameback with fifties from Mushfiqur Rahim and Sabbir Rahman. Bangladesh, who elected to bat first, made 305. Lyon finished innings with 7 wickets, going past Jason Gillespie's tally of 259 wickets. Earlier in the day, rain had washed out the entire morning session.

Warner brought up his 20th test century with his fifth boundary, driving a Nasir Hossain full toss through cover. Mustafizur Rahman and Mehedi Hasan picked three wickets each while Warner (123) and Peter Handscomb (82) put on 152 for the third wicket.

Then, Clooney says, Trump "went on "Larry King Live" and told him I was very short. George Clooney understands then that she has the shoulders to handle this fact.

The third innings can be summarised in two words: Bangladesh collapsed.

The deteriorating pitch proved to be a blessing for Australia, with Lyon in particular able to exploit plenty of turn.

Though the Bangladesh bowlers tried their best bagging 3 Australian wickets, the runs they were defending were insufficient and Australia eased their way to victory with a six from Maxwell.

In taking career-best match figures of 13-154, Lyon became the leading wicket-taker in Tests this year with 46, moving ahead of India's Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja (both 44).

Lyon was declared "Man of the Match for his brilliant performance in Chittagong".
