Australia edge ahead of Bangladesh after David Warner century and late collapse

07 September 2017

Warner was on 88 with Handscomb on 69 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium Handscomb, who recorded his fourth Test fifty in just his 10th game, took regular drinks breaks as he battled exhaustion and dehydration in the final half-hour.

The tourists ground out the runs after that reprieve and typically explosive opener Warner had to endure what will surely have been a painful 74-ball wait between boundaries.

Australia is no more the same conquoring team it once were under Steve Waugh first and Ricky Ponting thereafter, but they still are one of the top Test teams in the world.

"It's hard to get the Australia team under pressure so we must take our opportunity to win the series", Rahim said.

Still, those were runs on board and Australia have had issues in such conditions - Nathan Lyon picking up a seven-for was an obvious pointer to the pitch being spin-friendly.

"I always talk about trying to bat long periods for time in these conditions and, by far, that's the hottest I've ever played in", Warner said. Whereas Warner scored his second century on the trot with 123 runs from 234 balls.

Warner would reach a landmark hundred, his second in consecutive innings, after his well-publicised slump in Test cricket and in Asia in particular. The incident is still under investigation, according to Cricket Australia.
