Australia lead Bangladesh by 72 runs after Warner ton


PV Sports Desk : Australian David Warner’s second successive hundred against Bangladesh helped his side maintain their slight advantage on the third day of the second and final test on Wednesday.
After heavy rain washed out more than a session of the day’s play, Australia eclipsed Bangladesh’s first innings total of 305 by tea before the hosts retaliated in the final session to reduce the tourists to 377-9.

Steve O’Keefe was batting on eight with Australia leading by 72 runs. Nathan Lyon was yet to open his account at the other end.

Resuming Australia’s innings on 225-2, overnight batsmen Warner and Peter Handscomb batted with the assuredness that was the hallmark of their 152-run partnership.
