For a batsman who has been at the receiving end of severe criticism for his ordinary numbers before the Test series between Australia and Bangladesh, Warner has put an end to all such talks with two superlative innings which promise to change the perception about one of the finest batsman in contemporary cricket.
The Australians are undertaking their first test tour to Bangladesh since 2006, after a previous tour was delayed because of security concerns.
But just a few balls later, Shakib al Hasan had his wicket, removing Agar’s leg stump with a lovely delivery through the gate.

Lyon on Monday said he had studied footage of Indian offspin maestro Ravichandran Ashwin in a bid to improve his performance on the hard subcontinent wickets.
“This is why we do pre-season”. It’s what you want from your leaders.
Desperate to level the series after being humbled inside four days in Dhaka, Australia have gone in with three spinners and a lone paceman in Pat Cummins, a strategy they had not employed since 1978.

“Patty is an unbelievable cricketer”. They’re in the ice baths now.
“We’ll all sleep well tonight, do all our recovery”.
David Warner hit his second hundred in a row before Bangladesh fought back with quick strikes on a rain-hit third day of the second Test against Australia on Wednesday.
Sabbir played some of the day’s most fluent strokes in a stand ultimately worth 105 and ended only when Wade accomplished an outstanding legside stumping when the batsman overbalanced after attempting a pull shot.
“Matt Wade has been brilliant”.
“I’ve watched a lot of footage of Ashwin, who in my book is probably the No. 1 spinner in the world”, Lyon said.
And having now notched back-to-back tons on the subcontinent, Warner’s final frontier as a Test batsman, coach Darren Lehmann believes the left-hander has finally “got it”. “He always spoke about that when he was keeping for Australia”.
Knowing this, the selectors dropped Khawaja and replaced him with the allrounder Hilton Cartwright, whose ability to bowl seamers allowed for the recall of O’Keefe, the injury replacement for Josh Hazlewood. We’re facing quality bowlers. “Construction works are going on along the route and one of the escorting vehicles sent the rock flying into the window of the team bus”, Bahar was quoted as saying by Reuters.
