It’s nothing less than a history made at Mirpur. Crazy celebrations on the field are worth it. And why not? In past few months, Bangladesh has toppled top teams and this is their first ever test win against Australia.
Chasing 265, the Aussies looked well after opener David Warner’s blistering 112, but his dismissal led them losing 8 for 86 as they were bowled out for 244, despite pat Cummins’s fighting unbeaten 33.
This win came in front of a happy home crowd and the Prime Minister of the country. Bangladesh always has a very emotional crowd backing them and thus no doubt their 10th test win brought in a lot of praises and cheers from the stands as well as social media.
Waking up to splendid news from Bangladesh ….. Morning everyone ?

Indeed lots of going around in the longest format of the game with West Indies winning over England and the Tigers defeating the Kangaroos on home soil. Shakib Al Hassan stands out with his five wicket haul and a vital 84 runs and proving why he is the world’s best all rounder.
