Bangladesh started the last session at 155/5, recovering from top-order collapse. Mushfiqur Rahim and Sabbir Rahman continued on from where they left on. The partnership reached 50.

Sabbir, who was under critics for his place in the Test XI, reached his fourth half-century in 62 balls. But the hard-hitting batsman couldn’t convert it into a ton as he was stumped off Nathan Lyon for career-best 66 runs off 113 deliveries in including 6 fours and a six. The 105-run partnership for the sixth-wicket was finally broken.
