Peter Handscomb needed plenty of fluids and ice packs on the second day of the second Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong after suffering from rising heat and humidity. He took a long break in the process.
Bangladesh rued the opportunity lost of beating Australia in a Test series at home having won the opener in Mirpur. However they lost the second in Chittagong after a strong show from Nathan Lyon and David Warner.
Bangladesh’s Nasir Hossain stood beside Llong and imitated the umpire’s action, even pointing a finger to the sky and ‘declaring’ Cummins out. The incident has raised the question of what is and what isn’t acceptable behaviour on a cricket pitch.
Nathan Lyon was once again the wrecker-in-chief with the ball as he ended with figures of 13/154. This was also the second best match figures by a visiting bowler in Asia.
Australia lost three wickets for 48 but the victory was never out of the sight. Glen Maxwell ended the match with a consecutive cover-drive four and slog-swept six over mid-wicket as Australia brought up the victory in only 15.3 overs.
Australia defeated Bangladesh by 7 wickets to square the two-match series 1-1 in Chittagong on Thursday. Chasing a target of 86 runs in the second innings, Australia cruised to win in second clash.

After heavy rain washed out more than a session of the day’s play, Australia eclipsed Bangladesh’s first innings total of 305 by tea before the hosts retaliated in the final session to reduce the tourists to 377-9.
The last half an hour was especially punishing for Peter Handscomb as he doubled over quite a few times in an attempt to vomit, the only reason why he didn’t was because he lacked enough body fluids. Despite the dehydration, his concentration never wavered.
David Warner-Peter Handscomb 152-run partnership has helped Australia take a 72-run lead at stumps on Day 3. Australia are 277/9 and will begin Day 4 with O’Keefe and Lyon.
Australia opener David Warner hit an unbeaten 88 on Tuesday to help his team to a commanding 225-2 at the end of the Day 2, reducing Bangladesh’s first innings lead to 80 runs in the second cricket test.
The incident happened when the team was on their way back to the hotel from the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong after the first day’s play in the second Test.
