Khawaja passed 50 in all six home Tests against South Africa and Pakistan last Australian summer, but was dropped for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series in India.

Ahead of the tour, a two-member advanced security team, led by Sean Carroll and Frank Demasi, arrived Bangladesh on Tuesday and continue their inspection to confirm an alternative venue for the two-day tour match on 22-23 August as the previously selected venue, Khan Saheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah has been waterlogged.

Liverpool FC reject third FC Barcelona bid for Philippe Coutinho
Klopp has repeatedly defended the options at his disposal, and remains positive ahead of the visit of Crystal Palace . With all respect to both clubs, logically in a negotiation you need time to reach agreements for them and for us.

Australia have not played in Bangladesh since Ricky Ponting's team toured here in April 2006 and outside major tournaments, the two nations have played just two ODI series against each other in Darwin (2008) and Dhaka (2011) since then. "I think Bangladesh have been playing some very good cricket at home of late so hopefully the weather holds off and we can get some good cricket in this Test series".

Australia have arrived in Dhaka for a two-match Test series against the Tigers after 11 years since 2006. "I'd say if Usman plays he'll probably bat three and I'll slot in at four", Smith said. "I see Usman as more of a top-order batsman and I don't really have a big issue, whether it's three or four - I won't go lower than that".

China suspends seafood and iron imports from North Korea
Kim, while blustering about his military's ability to crush the US , made a decision to take a step back. North Korea regards the USA exercises with South Korea and Japan as preparations for invasion.

"They're a very good side in their own conditions and they're going to be very challenging", Smith said. So we're looking at it as a really big challenge. "It will be great for us to get some game time there and play in those conditions, and see what we've learnt from India". The row was finally resolved earlier this month with players and management agreeing on a new "in-principle" revenue-sharing deal.

The first Test between Bangladesh and Australia will be played from August 27 at Dhaka, followed by the second Test beginning September 4 at Chittagong.

Russian officials say 8 wounded in Siberia stabbing attack
