And that hangs in the balance, with Australia's hopes of averting disaster in Dhaka resting on the shoulders of Steve Smith after a calamitous top-order collapse left Bangladesh on top in the first Test.

"I think for us Australians will be about bowling in partnerships and bowling well together to take 20 wickets", said Lyon.

'I did not had anything in my mind during the time when I scored that century against Australia, ' Shahriar told Cricbuzz when his attention was drawn regarding what is the difference between now and then.

Australia's Pat Cummins bowls against Bangladesh during their first day of the first test cricket match in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Sunday, Aug. 27, 2017.

Two balls later, the batsman was caught in the gully by Peter Handscomb.

It was a mixed day for Lyon, too, who became just the eighth bowler to reach 250 Test wickets for Australia - and the second spinner after Shane Warne - before making a duck after being sent in as nightwatchman.

Usman Khawaja came in to join Matt Renshaw, but he tried to take a insane quick single only to be sent back and was run out for 1 to leave the tourists 2-14.

"There's no demons in that pitch as yet so it's a good opportunity for our batters". There is no reason to think he will be any less successful in Bangladesh, and big scores from Smith will go a long way to Australia having a strong series.

Young spinner Mehidy Hasan has been a revelation, while wicket keeper and captain Mushfiqur Rahim along with veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan have kept things in check for the Tigers.

In oppressive heat and 96% humidity, Cummins powered through his work to produce an ironman performance that indicates he is at peak fitness after years of injury heartbreak. And as far as the off-spinners list is concerned, Lyon is the sixth bowler to do so.

But there was redemption for Bangladesh - meeting Australia in a Test for the first time in over a decade - when their spinners took two scalps in the final moments of the session. Between overs he munched on hydrolyte ice blokes and at tea he and Josh Hazlewood were immersed in ice baths and cold showers as they fought to keep their body temperatures in check.

On a pitch which offered significant turn and variable bounce in the first session, Cummins bowled with unrelenting hostility to claim 3-29.

The partnership between danger men Shakib and Tamim was much-needed for Bangladesh, who were left reeling at 3-10 off four overs after a lethal spell from Cummins.

Glenn Maxwell's part-time offspin finally earned Australia the breakthrough with Tamim lobbing one to backward point to fall for a 71 which included three sixes off Lyon's bowling.

"They were obviously uncomfortable trying to defend against me, so they took me on", Lyon offered as explanation.
