Numbers don't lie. His 3568 runs from 50 Tests with five hundreds at 41.01 and 186 wickets with 17 five-fors, two 10-wicket match hauls at 32.09 are incredibly serious numbers - numbers that have put him on top of ICC all-rounders' ranking. Special effort to beat Australia.

"Hopefully, we will come hard in the next game as well", the Bangladesh captain insisted.
Australia's rapidly-diminishing hopes rested on Glenn Maxwell (14), but Shakib snuffed it out by going through his gates with the first delivery after the lunch break.
Australia's fast bowling options were dealt a further blow on Tuesday following a side-strain injury to Josh Hazlewood, but Pat Cummins is confident Jackson Bird is ready to step in.
There was a time when a Test match against Bangladesh was expected to be a one-sided affair and the Tigers had to struggle to adapt to the longest format of the game while facing a lot of criticism from the cricket pundits.
He is the third Australian paceman to be sidelined less than three months before the Ashes series against England, with Mitchell Starc and James Pattinson also injured. "I thought we fought back really nicely after that thought we let ourselves down a bit in the first innings with the bat".
But O'Keefe is now in line to add another Test to his portfolio in the second Test in Chittagong, with selectors to at least consider a three pronged spin attack.
