kamal: "Still think AUS have the upper hand, maybe if Maxwell gets out early I'll give BD a chance. Don't think there's anything wrong with this pitch actually. It brings both teams in play, is actually interesting to watch as any ball can be an absolute ripper, its not overdone to the point that no one can bat on it a la Shakib, Tamim, Warner and its not as if the pacers can't get anything out of it a la Pat Cummins on Day 1 and yesterday with Tamim, purely with pace. Great pitch and test."

Siva Prasad: "Maxwell will never get a better chance to be a hero. Interesting to see what the message would be from the coach/captain/team to Maxwell. All eyes on him!"

Tanvir: "If the pitch for the second Test is similar to this one, both teams can think of playing an extra batman and drop on pace bowler."

Salim Pathan: "These kind of Tests are very harmful as people can't work properly for days. Trying to get a few things done during the break now."

Akash Srivastav: "What a turnaround for the future of longest format. After the drab India-Sri Lanka Tests and Edgbaston where West Indies lost 19 wickets in a day, we've now seen two cracking Tests in two days. Simply wow."

SSG: "Will Hazlewood bat today?" Will bat if necessary. In others words, DEFINITELY. No way he's not coming out here. Imagine the outrage if he were to not come out with Australia needing 30. Twitter won't spare him, boss.

Radwoan: "The little cameo of 25 odd runs Mehedi played for Bangladesh may turn out very crucial in the context of game. But for now all eyes on Maxi. Only he can deny Bangladesh a deserved famous victory."

My friend from Pondicherry, India deconstructs Maxwell's approach: "All he has to do is hit 6,6,6,6,6, 1 and then 6,6,6,6,6, 6. Easy."

Noon That's lunch. Bangladesh have plucked out five wickets in this session - all of those came in the second hour - and are now just three away from victory. Maxwell and Cummins hanging on for Australia, who still need a further 66 runs. Do come back for what will most likely be the last session of this thriller in 40 minutes.

Ashwin: "Seems like the pitch is a spitting cobra one moment and a sand bed another. How will Australia make it?"

Prashant Silwal: "Oh What a time for a lunch break! Nervousness wouldn't allow both side to enjoy their meals.. "

KM: "These kind of test matches pull the fans back. The way Shai Hope played yesterday and warner played today to score a century in 4th innings is amazing."

End of over 56. 3 runs this over. 198/7 after 336 balls.

Ali: "Where's the Fizz? So far we've seen him in TV commercials more than we've seen him in action during this match! (They keep playing these Mint ad). Use the Fizz! He'd be a great option here. Perfect time to bring him in!"

Daiyan: "@ Balark: "Upset"? I don't think BAN winning this test will be termed as upset."

Shivang Sen: "Shivang: "What an opportunity here for Maxi to establish himself in this team!""

Alo: "What a day of cricket this will be if both WI and BD beat their fancied opponents on the same day from seemingly lost positions. Great for test cricket.

Finex Francis: "Wow.. two thrillers in 2 days.still possible of three results-win,loss,tie"

Ashik Hasan: "Apparently right before the Wade wicket, Mushy was chirping: "It's coming. there's nowhere to hide. There's nowhere to hide brother". Way to go Mushy! "

End of over 53.  A maiden over! 192/6 after 318 balls.

Balark: "Is it WI test all over again? Ban dominates the first two innings only to lose the plot in the third. Needs a miracle in the fourth to pull off a famous upset. Fingers crossed!"

Ijaz: "Game ONN.. memorable 50th Match for Shakib.. what a way to celebrate your 50th test by winning against giants Aussi.. No review remaining for AUS means BD have the upper hand."

End of over 52.  A maiden over! 192/6 after 312 balls.

red eye: "SHAKIB YOU ABSOLUTE BEAUTY! BD clinging on, in my opinion. What a finish here. AUS should have the experience to win this one with Maxwell and Agar now. BD have to make their own luck here. What a test match, has everything."

11am That's drinks. Back to Shashank again. Australia? or Bangladesh? Whichever way you look at it, we were in for the second thrilling finish in two days

Jeremy: "1st Innings - BAN's last 7 wickets for 95, 2nd Innings, AUS' last 6 for 115 (but Lyon had already gone as night watchman), 3rd Innings - BAN's last 7 for 86. BAN now need AUS' last 7 for 95 or less in the 4th Innings on a spitting track. Currently in neither team's favour."

MK: "Create a spin-friendly pitch. Check. Win the toss. Check. First innings lead against a visiting team with no local match practice against you. Check. What is the BD team supposed to do after all of this?"

End of over 44. 4 runs this over. 166/3 after 264 balls.

Robert : "This will be one of Australia's greatest victories if they pull it off, Bangladesh dominated for 3 and a half days and Australia were in all sorts of trouble." Greatest victories going a little too far? Surely one of their better ones in recent times.
