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.
