"For me, it is about playing well for the Australia cricket team", he said.
Shakib struck seven boundaries in 62 balls so far. The 2010 series didn't happen either.
Bangladesh, meanwhile, is approaching the series as a great opportunity to register its first Test win against Australia since it was awarded Test-playing status in 2000. He made his 50 in 65 balls and showed that he was not willing to be dictated by the Australian bowlers just because they had higher ground, courtesy Cummins burst.
The session still would have belonged to Bangladesh had Shakib been there at its conclusion but, with only a few minutes remaining and on 84, Lyon finally found an edge and presented a simple catch to Steve Smith at first slip.
With nine overs to survive before the close of play, Australian batsmen were unable to deal with the Bangladesh spinners on a pitch that offered considerable amount of turn and bounce. "Then they just beat Sri Lanka a few months ago, and we all know how (Australia) went in Sri Lanka (0-3 loss) past year - so that tells you something", Jones told The New Daily. On the other hand, Bangladesh have won two of their last three Tests, against Sri Lanka and England.
For the hosts, Shakib and Mehidy Hasan picked up one-one wicket while one Australian wicket fell through run-out.

Both players have regularly appeared in limited overs matches against Australia, and Shakib has played in the Big Bash League, however the passing Australian fan could understandably have been relatively unfamiliar with the pair. It would be a truly remarkable achievement, coming from a country that plays relatively little Test cricket. They're going to have to work hard, bat well, bat long partnerships. But, of course, he will need somebody to stay out there with him.
Full pitch: Bangladesh's Tamim Iqbal at the crease on day one of the first test in Dhaka. The selectors will have a tough decision to make between Taskin Ahmed and Shafiul Islam, but Shafiul might just get the nod.
Australia (probable): 1 David Warner, 2 Matt Renshaw, 3 Steven Smith (capt), 4 Usman Khawaja, 5 Peter Handscomb, 6 Glenn Maxwell, 7 Matthew Wade (wk), 8 Ashton Agar, 9 Pat Cummins, 10 Josh Hazlewood, 11 Nathan Lyon.
"It looks interesting. There was a lot of spin on Day One, but you expect that in the subcontinent". Rain is predicted on all five days of the Test, so the chances of a result will depend on how quickly the newly-laid outfield can dry - usually, the drainage is good.
Upon winning the lbw verdict that pulled him into the 250-wicket zone, Nathan Lyon paused briefly on his haunches before arising as Australia's second most prolific spin bowler after Shane Warne.
"I think the two guys batted very courageous", Lyon said. "It';s certainly slower than we are used to, but the best teams adjust to these conditions".
