Mominul back, Tigers opt to bat in 2nd Test

Bangladesh will look to repeat their brilliant performance when they face Australia in the 2nd Test in Chittagong. Follow live cricket score of Bangladesh vs Australia 2nd Test Day 1 here

Usman Khawaja has been dropped from Australia's Test side, while Steve O'Keefe is in for a three-pronged spin attack.

The final piece of the puzzle is the position of wicketkeeper, with some reports saying Matthew Wade could make way for part-time keeper Peter Handscombe.

Australian captain Steve Smith said Sunday he was considering fielding three spinners in the must-win Test against Bangladesh after their shock loss on a turning wicket in the series opener.

Heavy rain and storms have lashed Chittagong on the southeast coast in the build up to Monday's second Test, and they are expected to continue throughout the week.

The uncertain weather has contributed to Australia's selection headaches as they fight desperately to square the ledger against a Bangladesh side ranked ninth in the world.

If included, Cartwright would give skipper Steve Smith a secondary pace bowling option but would likely come at the expense of Usman Khawaja.

"I don't think the forecast is great for the first day tomorrow, so we might turn up to the ground and it be raining and we may need to change our decision again".

"They know they are under pressure, because normally they announce the XI", Mushfiqur said.

Fast bowler Pat Cummins talked about pacer Jackson Bird waiting in the wings after Josh Hazlewood picked up a left side strain during the first Test and flew back home.

"It is a morale boost".

Whereas Bangladesh would be eyeing their first Test series win against Australia. We know that. But our boys are also pretty fresh and they are very consistent in Chittagong also.

A 0-2 series defeat to Bangladesh, at No. 9 in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Test team rankings, will send it from No. 5 to No. 6. In the lead-up to today's match Mushfiqur said that Bangladesh will continue their aggressive play and will not take the safe route, even though they can not lose the series.
