Bangladesh v Australia - 2nd Test: Day 2
Warner's hundred and Smith's half-century led Australia to a dominant position at end of Day 1

A scintillating yet slow, by his standards, hundred from David Warner set the Boxing Day Test at Melbourne Cricket Ground alight, but it was Steven Smith who once again stole the show with some outstanding batting close to the stumps to put Australia way ahead after England had clawed their way back into the game at one point.

Smith was least troubled en route his half-century and looked every bit in his Bradmanesque zone once again, as England looked lost for ideas. Having got their way past a marauding Warner and a determined Bancroft, England hoped to end the day on a better note but that wasn't to be, with this Ashes turning out to be Steven Smith's own.
