2nd Test, Day 1: Bangladesh were 70/3 at Lunch against Australia

Healy put his weight behind Wade accounting for the difficult pitch he was up against

Australia also dropped Usman Khawaja, replacing him with batting all-rounder Hilton Cartwright.

Steve Smith inspects the pitch on the morning of day one.

But while Wade looks to have survived, Khawaja has been axed after making one and one in Dhaka.

Australia: Steve Smith (c), David Warner, Ashton Agar, Hilton Cartwright, Pat Cummins, Peter Handscomb (wk), Matthew Wade (wk), Steve O'Keefe, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell, Matt Renshaw, Mitchell Swepson and Jackson Bird.

Former Australia captain Ian Chappell said that lack of match practice for individual players may be one of the reasons behind their defeat to Bangladesh. On that occasion Australia picked debutant Dan Cullen alongside fellow tweakers Shane Warne and Stuart MacGill.

Thomas Lemar wanted Arsenal and Liverpool, says Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyev
Arsenal legend, Emmanuel Petit has said that players of the club are acting, "like babies". Asked if Arsenal could win the Premier League this season, Wenger responded: "Yes".

Australia will join Zimbabwe and Windies as the only Test-playing countries to have lost a series to Bangladesh if it fails to win in Chittagong, a statistic it will want to avoid, weather permitting. Darren Lehmann, the coach, has said the boys are hurting, and the visitors will be keen to bounce back, especially considering they will slip to a lowly sixth on the ICC Test ratings if they lose this game.

Khawaja had only just returned to the XI after being overlooked for all four Tests of the series away to India earlier in the year despite being in the touring party.

Cartwright is playing just his second Test, having made his debut against Pakistan in Sydney in January.

Mominul Haque, who replaced paceman Shafiul Islam in the lone change to the Bangladesh squad which had triumphed in Dhaka, was batting on 24 at the break.

Winning the toss, skipper Mushfiqur Rahim opted to bat first, but Lyon struck twice in quick succession to leave the hosts on 21 for 2.
