'Well done Bangladesh': Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag laud Tigers after historic Test win over AustraliaSachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag, along with many other present and former cricketers, congratulated Bangladesh on their first-ever Test victory over Australia.
Left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan claimed his second 10-wicket haul as Bangladesh sealed a landmark 20-run victory over Australia in the series-opening Test on the fourth day Wednesday.
Bangladesh's 10th victory in 101 Test matches - and their first over Australia - gave them a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.
Shakib returned figures of 5-85, following his 5-68 in the first innings, to help Bangladesh bowl out Australia for 244 runs one hour after the lunch break.
Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam's 3-60 and offspinner Mehidy Hasan's 2-80 helped in the win. The second match in Chittagong is scheduled from Sept. 4.
Here's how Twitterrati congratulated the Bangla Tigers on their historic win:
