Steve O'Keefe joins Australia for second Test in Chittagong

Stumps on Day Three in Dhaka and David Warner has dragged a too close to call encounter in Australia's favour with an unbeaten 74*.

The credit for Bangladesh's historic win must go to Shakib, who became the first Bangladesh bowler to take 10 wickets in a Test against Australia.

Star allrounder Shakib Al Hasan again did the damage for Bangladesh, finishing with 5-68 after having top-scored in their first innings with 84.

Shakib claimed five first innings wickets to help Bangladesh gain a 43-run lead and grabbed five more in the second to script a thrilling victory.

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.

Bangladesh's win on the fourth day came in the first test the two teams have contested since 2006.

"Keeping our target to 260 really kept us in the game, and then starting like we did tonight, if we have a good first hour tomorrow, it should really set the game up", Cummins said. The tourists' sole warm-up match before the Test was cancelled. "Against England also we beat them in the second game".

However, Hazlewood's departure means Steve Smith's side now have a big problem with the Ashes only a few months away, the seamer joining Mitchell Starc (foot) and James Pattinson (back) on the sidelines.

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.

Peter Handscomb, who had displayed admirable grit in the series against India, cut a short ball from Taijul but the edge flew to first slip where Soumya Sarkar produced a brilliant reflex catch on the second attempt to give Bangladesh hope.

Shakib removed Glenn Maxwell, who was considered the only final difficulty. "We got eight wickets, the fielders too chipped in".

Ashton Agar made 41 and Pat Cummins contributed 25, adding 49 runs for the ninth wicket in a defiant stand to lend a touch of respectability to the Australian total.

Australia were hampered by losing the toss as well as being without an injured Josh Hazlewood for much of Bangladesh's second innings and would want to make a stronger comeback.
