    SIX! Nasir Hossain to Glenn Maxwell. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Finishes the game in style. Tossed up and in the slot, and Glenn Maxwell deposits the ball over wide long on for six.

    Brilliant victory for Australia there to level the series at 1-1. They were much the better side over the four days and deserved the win. Restricting Bangladesh in the first innings was the key, and that was down to Nathan Lyon. Seven in the first innings, which was backing up by six in the second. David Warner also produced a masterclass with his 20th Test hundred to allow Australia to gain a vital first innings lead. The pitch eventually broke up which sped up the regularity of wickets, and that came at the wrong time for Bangladesh. Cheaply dismissed for 157, and the Aussies cruised to their small target in the end.

    A great Test series between the two sides. Plenty of entertainment, and it was well fought, so the trophy will be shared.

    FOUR! Nasir Hossain to Glenn Maxwell. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Maxwell powers it away off the backfoot for another boundary. Too short and too wide to this man. Rockets off the bat to the fence in no time.

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Shakib Al Hasan to Peter Handscomb. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to short extra cover for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Review taken in desperation. The ball doesn't even hit the pad and they are asking for the LBW. Obviously stays with the onfield decision.

    OUT! Caught. Shakib Al Hasan to Matthew Renshaw. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Rahim. Is there a twist? Renshaw now falls and Australia are three down now. Renshaw feels away from the body outside the off stump that he doesn't need to. The ball kisses the outside edge and Rahim takes it with ease behind the wicket.
