Australia’s batting fragility worries skipper Smith

DHAKA: Australia must deliver their propensity to crumple before the current year’s Ashes arrangement against England, captain Steve Smith said after his group leveled their two-test arrangement against Bangladesh on Thursday.

Lowered inside four days in the arrangement opener in Dhaka, Australia cavorted to a seven-wicket triumph in Chittagong, however not before another scaled down fall in their pursuit of an insignificant 86-run triumph target.

Openers David Warner and Matt Renshaw, and also Smith, died before Australia achieved 50, however Glenn Maxwell scored a windy unbeaten 25 and fixed the triumph with a six.Smith

“Those batting breakdown, they’ve progressed toward becoming a significant general event for us,” Smith said after Australia slipped to fifth place in test rankings in spite of the win.

“It’s something we have to amend. We get ourselves into great positions and after that can’t go ahead with it. That is something we need to settle.”


The arrangement uncovered Australia’s frailties against turn rocking the bowling alley. In Dhaka they lost 19 wickets to the Bangladesh spinners, with the other rejection being a run-out.

On a brighter note for the visitors, Warner made up for himself with consecutive hundreds of years,

Nathan Lyon completed with 22 wickets — the most astounding by an Australian in a two-test arrangement — and paceman Pat Cummins inhaled fire even on tame tracks.

“I thought we played some great cricket now and again in this test coordinate. In the principal innings … to limit them to what we did,” Smith said.

“I’m pleased with the way the young men got over the line at last to get the 1-1 draw.”

Partner Mushfiqur Rahim said that Bangladesh, who enrolled their first test win against Australia in Dhaka,

would take heart from the drawn arrangement in front of their voyage through South Africa.

“We will gain from this innings and ideally in the following couple of years, if a comparative circumstance comes, we’ll handle it better,” Mushfiqur said.

“Regardless of whether you win or lose, there are dependably territories to progress. It will be diverse conditions in South Africa. We need to think of good designs and execute well.”

Lyon’s 13-wicket coordinate pull earned him the man-of-the-coordinate honor and he shared man-of-the-arrangement respects with Warner.

“We know we haven’t had the most accomplishment in the subcontinent, so it was vital for us, as a

youthful gathering, to turn out and stand up in these conditions,” the off-spinner said.”Bangladesh are a tasteful side, so to come up against them was a test for us.”
