Australia will show more respect now - Shakib

Bangladesh's first Test win against Australia in 11 years had its fair share of flashpoints between the sides. After a historic maiden win, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim, Bangladesh's vice-captain and captain, echoed how Australia were seeing a different side to Bangladesh with bat, ball, body language and sledging.

Shakib gave Nathan Lyon a send-off on the first day, while David Warner, Steven Smith and Matthew Wade all reacted to the sledging at different points on the third and fourth day. Warner had to be stopped by Tamim Iqbal while Wade exchanged words with some of the Bangladesh players, including Tamim, after his second innings dismissal.

"Australians are very good at it, we are learning from them," Shakib said when asked about the verbal volleys. "After this Test match they will show a lot more respect."

"At home, we believe we can beat any side," he said. "We had that confidence and the belief came from the last two-three years. Not many have been watching us but we were quietly doing our job."
