Australia on top in 2nd test
CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh, April 16 (Reuters) Jason Gillespie snared three wickets for 11 runs before spinners Stuart MacGill and Shane Warne went to work as Australia restricted Bangladesh to 153 for seven at tea in the second test today.
Bangladesh, who won the toss and opted to bat, lost their first wicket without a run on the board when first-test centurion Shahriar Nafees was caught at square leg by Brett Lee off Gillespie for a duck.
Skipper Habibul Bashar was then superbly caught at point by a tumbling Phil Jaques off Gillespie, who also trapped opener Javed Omar (two) lbw.
Warne, who had been expected to sit out the game due to a shoulder problem, snapped up the wicket of Mohammad Ashraful (six) who sent a catch to Matthew Hayden at slip.
Rajin Saleh added 71 runs before being bowled by Macgill, who also removed Mohammad Rafique (19) caught by Matthew Hayden.
Warne took the wicket of Aftab Ahmed (18) when Adam Gilchrist caught him behind.
Warne took two wickets for 44 and Macgill had two for 53.
The start of play had been delayed for 10 minutes after a disturbance involving the police and a photographer at the Divisional Stadium.
Australia took a 1-0 lead in the two-test series with a dramatic three-wicket victory in the opener at Fatullah.
