Never heard of Swenson. Wonder if we will see a massacare this match if BD come in overconfident. I'm sure Shakib is experienced enough to warn against that in the team's preparation

Profile

A legspinner who can give the ball a good rip, Mitchell Swepson was called into Australia's Test squad for the tour of India in early 2017. His selection came at a time when he had played only 14 first-class matches, but Swepson had impressed with his wicket-taking ability in less than two full seasons of Sheffield Shield cricket. In 2015-16, his debut Shield season for Queensland, Swepson took 17 wickets at 37.94 from six games, and he was rushed into the Australia A side for three first-class games against South Africa A and India A in 2016, collecting 14 wickets at 19.35.

Swepson called in for Bangladesh tour (Aug 5, 2017)

talk of Handscomb as keeper, I hope they consider the fact he's an excellent short leg to the offspinner and would be difficult to replace in that fielding position

Aus will not try him as Keeper but wade will continues in second test as well as 5 ODI in India

Why?
Ask Imran khan of Pakistan.You need specialist wicket keeper in All form of cricket.Paine perfect choice for 3t20 vs India in India in Oct.2017.

Replacing Hazlewood with Swepson?
Just checked Swepson's batting stats - they're terrible.

On a tour where runs are hard to come by, every run that a tailender can contribute must be appreciated.
Lyon, Agar, Cummins contribute more than just with the ball.

Much as I like Maxwell, I'm beginning to think he's a bit of a liability here.
At least Afridi was always a tricky bowler to negotiate, even if his batting was as much of a lottery as Maxwell's.
Maxwell's bowling isn't much better than Carl Hooper's - and we all know what Boycott thought of Carl Hooper's bowling.

So, though I love to see Maxi in there, maybe it's better to pick a specialist batsman or a specialist bowler in his place.

Having said what I've said just now, I think I'm being unfair to Maxwell, comparing him to Afridi.
He's a far better batsman - just that he doesn't show it as often as he needs to.
Afridi was pretty much a slogger - Maxwell isn't.

Steve Smith makes a huge psychological difference to this side.

When he doesn't get runs, Australia always seem to be a few notches lower in confidence.

Hopefully he'll bounce back in Chittagong.

Smith was involved in a big partnership in the first test even if his runs scored dont show a high score

a good batting side wouldnt collapse like that after Warner's dismissal

Hazlewood's batting on these tracks is nothing to write home about, nor is Lyon's

Cummins was very good in Dhaka. He looks a better player in these conditions than Maxwell.

You think so?

I think England has far more depth in its batting than Australia has.

An early loss of Cook doesn't unsettle England quite as much. There's Root, Bairstow, Stokes, Moeen to take them to a good total.

With Australia, I don't get the same feeling at all.

NeviLL better than Alex C & Wade or Peter HandscomB (WK)
================================================

Part-time 'keeper in Chittagong 'not going to help anyone': Ian Healy

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

When Australia coach Darren Lehmann didn't rule out the possibility of Peter Handscomb taking up the glove duty for the second Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong, it raised an interesting debate in the Australian cricket circles. Speaking to the media on Friday (September 1), Lehmann held his cards close to his chest and kept each of the 14 members of the squad in contention to make it to the starting eleven. However, former wicketkeeper Ian Healy warned the think tank against picking a part-time 'keeper in conditions as challenging as the prevailing ones in Bangladesh.

"That's not going to help anyone," Healy told Wide World of Sports. "You risk compromising Handscomb's batting, and I don't imagine the bowlers would be filled with confidence knowing there's a part-timer at the other end with the gloves on."

Matthew Wade could gather only nine runs in two innings combined in the Dhaka Test, besides conceding as many as 22 byes. On a surface that threw open a bagful of tricks with inconsistent turn and bounce, Wade had a tough time keeping to lead spinners Nathan Lyon and Ashton Agar. But the amount of byes didn't hassle the former 'keeper as he put his weight behind Wade, accounting for the difficult pitch he was up against.

"I'm not looking too much at the 30 byes," Healy mentioned. "It was a really difficult pitch to keep on, there were some balls coming through shin high, and others disappearing over the batsman's shoulder.

"I can't ever remember in my career having to deal with that. You always expected plenty of turn in places like India or Pakistan, but the inconsistent bounce is a nightmare for a keeper. It's been tough for Wade this year given the pitches they've played on in India and now here in Bangladesh, and it might be even tougher for him in the second Test if they play three spinners."

Handscomb has kept wickets for Australia in one-day cricket apart from performing the duties in all three formats in the domestic arena. However, the part-timer had clearly mentioned in the past that he didn't want the role permanently. While Alex Carey is being tipped to be Australia's man for the future, Healy argued that an untried wicketkeeper wouldn't be the right idea for a series as big as the Ashes. Carey was selected for Australia A on the boycotted tour of South Africa.

Healy brought Peter Nevill into the equation, stating that the young 'keeper was the best in the country and was unfortunate to be dropped after his unbeaten 60 against South Africa in the Perth Test. Nevill featured in the following Test at Hobart before being left out.

"I said at the time Peter Nevill was unlucky to get dropped," Healy said. "I consider him the best gloveman in the country, and he'd just made an unbeaten 60 in Perth, then got dropped a match later.

"If Wade has a good Test in Chittagong I expect he'll be there at the Gabba. But if he struggles the selectors will definitely be looking around. It may come down to who does the best in the first couple of Shield matches. But the Ashes is no time to be looking at someone new. If it's not Wade, they have to go back to Nevill," Healy concluded.

Most teams these days have 2 guys that can really play then they fall away a lot after that

If you compare Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali batting at home compared to Australian players playing on rank turners in the SC its not really a fair comparison. England have 2 class batsmen and a few who can makes runs on their day. Australia have 2 class batsmen and the same. Remember England lost to Bangladesh by a bigger margin than Australia did if you want to compare apples with some other apples.

Peter Nevill is a excellent batsmen and easily the best wicket keeper but he added zero voice wise, deadset mute behind the stumps and his body language was so uninspiring, if he does get another chance add abit of sledging and rev up his team mates more. Wicket keeper needs to always be chirping and trying to keep the spirits up that's about the only good thing Wade does.

He had problems with his batting in those successive series losses to Sri Lanka and South Africa. ...not that Wade is any better but I wouldnt go so far to use the term 'excellent'.

I would say at least 2/3 of the byes Wade conceded were not saveable most come from balls rearing of a good length even Healy would have conceded 10-20 byes on that wkt, Rahim wasn't much better then Wade conceding 22 byes.
Nevill has a excellent FC Batting record, suggesting he hasn't made the transition from 4 day to 5 days very well A-La Hick, Ramprakash & Bevan.

According to I Healy ,Aus selector might turn to Nevill if :nana: Wade once again fails at Chittagong test.

I think selector should turn to Alex Carey for the future than Nevill,so he can establish his career as permanent keeper for next decade or so.he should go to India on sep 17 as reserves or first choice keeper.

After all, Alex Carey will take ""CARE" for the future of Australian cricket

occasional keeper only now becoming first choice at 26

for some reason I had him confused with "the prawn" Alex Ross

I'd like to see young keepers make runs in the 'A' side on SC tours first before being considered. esp since so many tours there now for the senior side.

LOL this is Shaun Tait's opinion. Remember, he is an idiot.

Handscomb is possibly the best short leg fielder Australia has ever had. He's probably made a handful of wickets fielding there already.

Big Picture :lolup:

Australia's desire to keep its rare Test series against Bangladesh as brief as possible has had the unintended consequence of meaning that Steven Smith's team can now do no better than tie the series following their narrow defeat in Mirpur. Equally it means Bangladesh are themselves within touching distance of their most significant series victory in 17 mostly faltering years of Test cricket. Their other wins have come against Zimbabwe (twice) and the West Indies, both of whom have spent much of that time propping up the bottom of the ICC's rankings table - besting Australia would be another matter entirely.

The visitors will likely be better for the run last week, having not previously had any competitive cricket leading into it. However, their team composition is shrouded in conjecture as doubts swirl around the places of Usman Khawaja and Matthew Wade in particular. Wade, at least, has the knowledge that his only possible replacement is the part-time wicketkeeper Peter Handscomb, who notably trained for his more customary short leg posting at the team's main session on Saturday. However, Khawaja could find himself missing out in place of the allrounder Hilton Cartwright, creating room for the unexpected return of Steve O'Keefe and leaving Pat Cummins as the only paceman. Bangladesh look altogether more settled in comparison.

Perhaps the biggest obstacle to Bangladesh in Chittagong will be mental, simply getting used to the idea that a series defeat of Australia is not just a possibility but an opportunity waiting to be taken. But after significant Test wins over England and Sri Lanka in the past 12 months, it would be the logical next step in the team's evolution. Australia, by contrast, need a victory to offer evidence of progress away from home, and also to bolster confidence ahead of a home Ashes series in much friendlier climes. All this is without mentioning that the weather forecast for Chittagong over the next five days is far from promising - another variable given added weight by the scheduling of a mere two Tests.

In the spotlight

Not only did Mehidy Hasan prove the ideal foil for Shakib Al Hasan in Mirpur, his skilful use of a line around the wicket created plenty of problems for Australia's captain and key batsman in Smith. As a better known quantity for the Australians second time around, Mehidy will have lost some of his mystery, and it will be intriguing to see whether he can ask different questions of batsmen who have also seen the advantage of David Warner's decisive approach in the second innings.

Whether or not Australia choose two spin bowlers or three, Pat Cummins, asked to bowl swiftly and well in back-to-back Tests, will be the spearhead of the attack. For so long unavailable due to persistent injuries, Cummins now finds his stamina tested and also his ability to operate as a senior bowler, dialling up or down depending on what his captain requires. As Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc both convalesce, Cummins' wellness and effectiveness will be closely monitored not only by Australia and Bangladesh, but also England.


Team news

Bangladesh will most likely keep the same side that prevailed in Mirpur, with the only possible change being allrounder Nasir Hossain left out in favour of batsman Mominul Haque.

Bangladesh (probable): 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Soumya Sarkar, 3 Imrul Kayes, 4 Sabbir Rahman, 5 Shakib Al Hasan, 6 Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), 7 Nasir Hossain/Mominul Haque, 8 Mehidy Hasan, 9 Taijul Islam, 10 Shafiul Islam, 11 Mustafizur Rahman.

Seldom has more doubt surrounded the composition of an Australian Test XI, as Khawaja and Wade both find themselves under heavy scrutiny in addition to the place opened up by Hazlewood's side strain. Hilton Cartwright, the just-flown-in O'Keefe and Jackson Bird are all possible inclusions, but the team's final composition will not be known until the toss.

Australia (probable): 1 David Warner, 2 Matt Renshaw, 3 Steven Smith (capt), 4 Peter Handscomb, 5 Glenn Maxwell, 6 Hilton Cartwright, 7 Matthew Wade (wk), 8 Ashton Agar, 9 Steve O'Keefe, 10 Pat Cummins, 11 Nathan Lyon.

Pitch and conditions

The Chittagong surface looked rock hard but can be expected to take spin. The weather forecast is far from promising, as rain is expected on all five scheduled days of the Test.

Stats and trivia

Bangladesh are seeking their first series victory over Australia and only their fourth in all series since entering the Test arena in 2000. The others were against Zimbabwe in 2005 and 2014, and against the West Indies in 2009.


Australia's previous Test appearance in Chittagong reaped an innings-and-80-run victory for the visitors in 2006, a match remembered for Jason Gillespie's double-century as a nightwatchman.


Defeat in Chittagong would see Australia will drop to sixth on the ICC Test rankings, their lowest position on the table since it began in 2003. A win or draw would slip them down from fourth to fifth. Bangladesh will climb from ninth to eighth with a win or a draw.

Quotes

"I hate losing games of cricket. It wasn't a nice end to the game but again I'm confident again this week that we can come out and hopefully play with a good skillset and turn things around. It's important for this group moving forward. We just need to play better cricket for longer and hopefully stay in the contest and get the result we're after."
Australia captain Steven Smith

"They know they are under pressure, because normally they announce the XI. In this case they haven't announced the XI. But the Australia team are very strong and they will come back hard. We know that. But our boys are also pretty fresh and they are very consistent in Chittagong also. So if we do the right things I think the result will come our way."

Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim

Ranking system I really hates because if Australia loose they will slips to number 6 from number 4 in tests, if they win or draw, they will slips to number 4 to 5?

Strange ICC ranking.

who is Imrul Kayes blowing to get picked in this side?

are Bangladesh commentators under the same rules as the BCCI where they're not allowed to comment/criticize selection?
