Rain is forecast for all five days but the silver lining for cricket fans is that, according to the Bangladesh Meteorological Department, showers are not likely to be lengthy enough to cause major delays. Australia suffered their first-ever Test defeat against Bangladesh and are desperate to restore some lost pride. If Australia lose this clash, they would dip to all-time low ranking at No. 6, since 1988.

Overcoming the home team's spinners is one of Australia's biggest challenges. We know that. But our boys are also pretty fresh and they are very consistent in Chittagong also.

It has been a series of bold statements. That he did came as Australia's selectors chose to pick three frontline spinners in their attack for the first time since Jason Gillespie made his double-century at this venue in 2006.

While Bangladesh will be the more settled side, mentally as well as in terms of personnel, there is the chance that there may be a change or two from the eleven that played in Mirpur.

Two wickets fell in the post-lunch session as Lyon sent back Mominul Haque, who boasts the highest batting average of the Bangladesh team.

"We got to work on our lengths and obviously first innings runs are important as well".

After Tamim Iqbal could only manage 9 and Imrul Kayes 4, opener Soumya Sarkar and the returning Mominul Haque slightly repaired the damage with a 49-run partnership.

Australia, attempting to draw the series, included spin bowling all-rounder Steve O'Keefe, who replaced injured fast bowler Josh Hazlewood. The pitch is expected to take turn right from the word go, as was the case in the first Test.

Australia: David Warner, Matt Renshaw, Hilton Cartwright, Steven Smith (capt), Glenn Maxwell, Peter Handscomb, Matthew Wade (wk), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Steve O' Keefe, Nathan Lyon.
