We are learning sledging from Aussies: Shakib Al Hasan

Questions remain about whether the Australians were mentally prepared for their first series on Bangladeshi soil since 2006. The hosts won by a narrow margin of 20 runs and now lead the two match series 1-0.

"We made a few errors, a few guys getting out in ways they've got out before and not learning from their mistakes, which was a bit disappointing", Smith told reporters after play.

"We let ourselves down a bit in the first innings with the bat", Smith said.

A similar triumph in next week's second and final test in Chittagong would result in Australia tumbling to No 6 in the world rankings.

With catch after catch coming from Lyon's spinning skill, there were moments in Bangladesh's second innings where it looked like Australia might claw their way back into this Test.

Earlier at lunch, Shakib helped Bangladesh reduce Australia to 199/7 and place the visitors in danger of losing the first Test after David Warner hit a century on the fourth day on Wednesday.

The match unravelled for Australia in a disastrous hour before lunch when they lost five wickets after reaching a competitive 3-166.

Cummins brought his side achingly close to a win, but Taijul brought the curtain down on the innings with his dismissal of Josh Hazlewood for nought.

He is the third Australian paceman to be sidelined less than three months before the Ashes series against England, with Mitchell Starc and James Pattinson also injured.

Agar and Cummins came together after Mehedi had Matthew Wade plumb leg-before for five and Shakib drew Glenn Maxwell forward for a stumping on 23 to leave Australia struggling on 144 for eight.

Shakib claimed 5-85 and was the obvious man-of-the-match choice for his first innings score of 84 and a 10-wicket haul.

Shakib Al Hasan picked up 10 wickets, David Warner slammed his 19th century and the Australian tail nearly pulled off a historic chase. Smith also was dismissed by a similar delivery which ended his innings of 37, lasting for 99 balls. It was pretty hard batting here in the second innings and I thought we did pretty well to get 240 in the end.
