The Tigers took the wickets of two overnight Aussie batsmen Peter Handscomb and David Warner for 298 runs in 88 overs in the 1st innings in the rain-marred 3rd day’s play at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium on Wednesday.

Bangladesh made the 1st breakthrough dismissing Handscomb by virtue of a run out at 250/3 in 73.3 overs, reports UNB.

All-rounder Nasir Hossain delivered to overnight David Warner who worked the ball towards square leg from where all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan picked up the ball and hit the stumps directly at the bowler's end for a terrific knock. Handscomb stayed for 82 off 144 balls, including six boundaries.

After the departure of Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell (7 off 19 b; 1x4) came to the crease to pair with back-to-back centurion David Warner.

The visitors collected 298 runs for 4 in 88 overs when Maxwell was batting on 19 from 44 deliveries.

Warner was out scoring 123 runs off 234 balls with seven boundaries.

Earlier, Warner hit a century of 112 runs in the 2nd innings of the Dhaka Test.

Overnight 3rd pair between Warner and Handscomb contributed 152 runs in 45.2 overs, starting from 98/2 in 28.1 overs after the departure of skipper Steven Smith on the 2nd day.

Warner (88 off 170b; 4x4) and Handscomb (69 off 113; 5x4) resumed the Australian innings from behind 80 runs in reply to Bangladesh’s 305 runs in the first innings which ended in the middle of the first session on the 2nd day.

Wet weather after persistent rain in the port city in the morning washed out the first session of the day.
