Smith tells Australia to 'go for it' with Kohli verbals

In fact, much before the start started, Miraz, who hit a fighting half-century in the Bangladesh's first innings, had told he would seek advice from the Indian off spinner.

He occupied the crease for three and a half hours during his 149-ball innings which included seven hits to the boundary while his team chased a mammoth 459 for victory.

Miraz will soon get the opportunity to test out what he learned when Bangladesh visits Sri Lanka next month. Virat Kohli's leadership is contagious. "But I still think the quicks have a big role to play as well", Clarke said on a Facebook live chat. The "the best batsman in Test cricket" debate usually revolves around these 4 batsmen and it's good to see that they share a very healthy competition among them.

Flu activity on the rise in MA
According to the release , this season's flu has been hitting children, teenagers and young adults particularly hard. Most years, the vaccine is between 40 percent and 60 percent effective, according to the CDC.

"For me, it is about understanding the different times of the games", Smith said. In the second innings, all three bowled really well and Ishant stood out.

Writing in his column for the Times of India, Gavaskar said that Kohli was now in the form of his life and the 28 year old's scoring rate has helped the Indian bowlers get enough time to bowl out the opposition twice.

"Then you go through a patch when the ball really does nothing - it's not carrying through, it's not reverse swinging, so then you really have to dot it up (stop the scoring)".

Powerful Bomb blast in Lahore shakes Pakistan, several injured
Police and security officers cordon off the area after a bombing in Lahore, Pakistan , on February 13, 2017. A spokesperson for a faction of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan TTP had claimed responsibility for the attack .

Those hopes were dashed after lunch though, when both batsmen were snapped up by Ishant Sharma during an inspired spell of fast bowling, Sabbir falling leg before for 22 and Mahmudullah caught at fine leg attempting a pull shot.

Kohli is a player who thrives under pressure and he has proved that time and again. To be very honest, anyone knows how to set fields in the ground, it's just that you have to make sure that you take up the responsibility of keeping the energy of the team up. Aussies face a huge challenge of improving their Test record in Asian conditions and in a desperate attempt have picked a four-man spin attack including Nathan Lyon, Steve O'Keefe, Mitchell Swepson and Ashton Agar with all-rounder Glenn Maxwell being the 5th spinning option.

Bangladesh's Mahmudullah, who scored a valiant 64 yesterday. I think all the guys are really excited about what's to come in the next six weeks. I think there was a bit of lapse in body language when they were eight (wickets) down. Had we taken our chances, we probably could have finished the game earlier.
