Australia's Peter Handscomb Lost 4.5 Kgs While Batting Against Bangladesh

Posted September 07, 2017

And so, four left-handers all got out lbw against Lyon as another left-hander, Shakib al Hasan, came in to bat at No 5, ahead of Mushfiq. They ended it facing the possibility of a nervous fourth-innings chase in order to salvage something from the series, after failing comprehensively to make the most of the strong platform provided by David Warner and Peter Handscomb. Warner put in all he had to churn out a gritty hundred in the second innings to take Australia agonisingly close to their target in a Test which they lost by a mere 20 runs.

Handscomb responded to a call for a single that would have completed Warner's century but was sent back from halfway down the pitch. His patient 82 included six boundaries.

From there the innings unravelled, at first gradually and then with increasing speed. Mustafizur Rahman was the bowler. He took breaks, as the humidity and heat tested him several times during the day.

The sight of Warner and Glenn Maxwell nudging and nurdling belied each man's reputation, although Maxwell ought to have gone when Mustafizur (3-84) worked him over nicely, only for Mehedi to drop a simple gully catch.

But just a few balls later, Shakib al Hasan had his wicket, removing Agar's leg stump with a attractive delivery through the gate.

Steve O'Keefe (8*) and Nathan Lyon (0*) reached stumps with Australia on 377/9 leading by 72 runs but with the pitch becoming increasingly hard to bat on, you would fancy that the Tigers will be happier with the state of the match.

Warner was batting on 88 with Handscomb on 69 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.

Drawing level with skipper Steve Smith as well as another Sydneysider in Mark Waugh on 20 Test tons, Warner's innings represents the most measured ton of his nearly six-year career in the Baggy Green.

Positively, Cummins appeared to pull up well after play.

Bangladesh is on the verge of achieving the once-unthinkable - a series victory over Australia.

A subsequent letter written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was used instead as the basis to terminate Comey. That element "is the hardest to prove, because it depends on showing an improper motive", the experts said.

Wade's underwhelming record with the bat since he returned to the Test side late previous year has been a mounting source of concern for the selectors, to the point that they considered dropping him to use Handscomb's part-time glovework in this match.

Maxwell, too, was to find little joy from video evidence when given out upon squeezing Mehidy from bat to pad into the gloves of the diving Mushfiqur Rahim.

It certainly isn't the first time an Australian batsman has struggled with the subcontinental heat.

Lyon returned impressive figures of 7-94 including Rahim's prized scalp for 68. Agar's face revealed his realisation of the error he had made.
