Australia were 225 for 2 thanks to an unbeaten century stand between David Warner (88) and Peter Handscomb (69) at the close of play on Tuesday. They trail Bangladesh, who made 305 in their first innings, by 80 runs.

Bangladesh lead the two-match series 1-0 after winning the first Test by 20 runs in Dhaka.
