After a dismal start to their first innings on the first day if the first Test, Australian overnight batsman Matt Renshaw and skipper Steve Smith stepped in with much hope to bolster their total and put forth a good target for the hosts.

The likes of Shakib and Tamim Iqbal, who was unbeaten on 30, have proven to be adept at playing spin but left-arm offspinner Agar backed Australia's tweakers to make an impact on day three.

While not quite reprising his heroics from Trent Bridge in 2013, Agar again provided useful runs in the lower order, taming the spinners on his way to 41 not out, with most of his runs scored through the leg side.

Maxwell reached 23 before being stumped by Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim, after charging down the wicket and completely missing a Shakib delivery.

Renshaw had earlier combined with Peter Handscomb for an encouraging 69-run stand.

The all-rounder, who is now playing his 50th Test match, had earlier dismissed nightwatchman Nathan Lyon on the first day and removed Renshaw, Glenn Maxwell, Pat Cummins and finally Hazlewood as Shakib bagged his 16th five-wicket haul in Test cricket.

In the end, Shakib provided the breakthrough for Bangladesh when he clean bowled Pat Cummins for 25. Shakib Al Hasan has joined Rangana Herath, Dale Steyn and Muttiah Muralitharan in this elite club.

Having challenged Renshaw earlier in the morning, spinner Shakib Al Hasan got his man eventually, with the Queenslander sent on his way for 45 after Soumya juggled catch at slip shortly before lunch.

In his first Test for four years, Agar followed up his three first-innings wickets by making valuable contributions with bat and ball as Australia fought to stay in the contest on Monday.

Lyon moved past Richie Benaud on Australia's all-time Test wicket-takers list and became just the second Aussie spinner after Shane Warne to take 250 Test scalps; Lyon now sits eighth on the list, only nine wickets short of Jason Gillespie.

In fact, Australia are crumbling on day two of the first Test against Bangladesh at Dhaka. He seemed to confer at length with non-striker Glenn Maxwell before opting not to review the decision despite Australia having two challenges up their sleeve. The only wicket taken by a pace bowler was by Kamrul Islam Rabbi.

A day after rescuing Bangladesh from a top-order collapse with a handy 84, Shakib claimed 5 for 68 to bowl Australia out for 217.
