Gillespie salvo puts Australia on top in Chittagong
CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh, Apr 16 (Reuters) Jason Gillespie returned to something like his best form with three wickets as Bangladesh struggled to 67 for four at lunch on the opening day of the second and final test against Australia today.
Gillespie returned figures of 3-11 from his five overs in the morning session with Rajin Saleh (40) and Aftab Ahmed (0) the not out batsmen at the break.
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 (2) lbw.
Shane Warne, who was expected to rest his shoulder problem and miss the game, snapped up the wicket of Mohammad Ashraful (6) who sent a catch to Matthew Hayden at slip.
Australia took a 1-0 lead in the two-test series after the dramatic three-wicket victory in the opener at Fatullah.
The start of play had been delayed for 10 minutes after a disturbance involving the police and a photographer at the Divisional Stadium.
