We must be patient, says Whatmore

Bangladesh coach Dav Whatmore has warned his team not to get carried away after they dominated the first two days of the first Test against Australia.

The hosts ran up 427 before reducing Australia, the best side in the world, to 145-6 in their first innings.

"We are in the driving seat, which is something new to us," said Whatmore.

"The situation is that Bangladesh are very much on top and we have to realise how close we are to winning the game, however it is not one-day cricket."

Stuart MacGill said Australia's poor batting had taken the shine off his career-best bowling performance.

MacGill took 8-108 as Bangladesh broke the 400 barrier for only the fourth time in their short Test history, but he could only watch as Australia's batsmen failed to fire.

"I would have been happier if we were in a better position," said MacGill.

"The pitch has deteriorated a little but full credit to the Bangladeshi spinners for dominating our batsmen."
