Australia really fought back on the third day and it was Adam Gilchrist's great knock which put Australia back on track. He showed why he is known as the best number seven batsman in the world. He adapted very well to the conditions and accumulated runs being the last to get out for 144. Bangladesh were very quiet on the field, this is the time when the captain should have motivated everybody to be lively and noisy on the field and put pressure on the opponents. When Bangladesh came in to bat they had a reasonably good start losing the first wicket for 48. Then captain Habibul Bashar ran himself out and it seemed that he was taking a stroll in the park. His casual approach definitely had a big impact on the team. Aftab once again played a slog sweep shot and got himself out. No wonder he is dropped from the side now and then for playing such atrocious shots.
Time and again Bangladeshi batsmen let themselves down batting in the second innings. The coach can teach them but can not play for them, players need to perform in the middle and carry out their responsibilities.
After two days of domination Bangladesh were still on the driving seat with a 281-run lead with five wickets in hand.
On Day Four, the home side lost the remaining five wickets within 40 minutes in addition of only 22 runs showing their immaturity to handle pressure.
Hayden and Hussey adapted well to the condition to give Australia a good start and Ricky Ponting played a magnificent knock without taking any risk, playing mostly on the front foot.
By the end of the day, the balance of the match shifted in favour of the Australians and Bangladesh have 40 percent chance of coming right from behind. If Bangladesh can pick up a couple of wickets tomorrow morning, they will be right back in the game. It is important that the hosts believe in themselves that they can do it and win.
