Warner, Handscomb drive Australia ahead

Chittagong: Australia were 225-2 at stumps on day two of the second and final Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong on Tuesday.

Opener David Warner on 88 and Peter Handscomb on 66 were at the crease, with the visitors still trailing Bangladesh by 80 in their first innings. The duo compiled an unbeaten 127-run stand for the third wicket.

Opener Matt Renshaw departed early, dismissed by fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman before the lunch break.

The left-hander tried to tickle a sliding delivery down the leg side but wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim took a stunning catch.

Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam bowled skipper Steve Smith for 58 to break a 93-run second-wicket partnership with Warner.

But Smith, who registered his 21st Test half-century, was done in an arm ball from the left-arm spinner which sneaked through the bat-pad gap to hit middle stump.
