Dawes four-for takes West Indies under-19s to victory
West Indies U-19s 185 (Miller 66, Mahmud 4-26) beat Bangladesh U-19s 112 (Hasan 30, Dawes 4-25, Brooks 3-9, Jacobs 3-28) by 73 runs
Jason Dawes, the debutant seamer, with figures of 4 for 25, ripped through the Bangladesh Under-19s' top order, as West Indies Under-19s claimed a 73-run win in the second ODI in Savar.
Chasing 186 to win off 43 overs in a rain-curtailed match, Bangladesh lost opener Saikat Ali and Nadimuddin leg before in successive overs by Dawes. Nasir Hossain and Mithun Ali added 20 before Dawes struck twice again; Hossain was caught by Veerasammy Permaul, while two balls later, Rony Talukder fell for a duck. Bangladesh were in trouble at 36 for 4, and were never in the hunt from then on.
Spin, which was introduced in the 12th over, reaped immediate rewards when Steven Jacobs bowled Ali for 17, and Suhrawadi Shuvo in consecutive overs. Mahmudul Hasan, the No. 6 batman, attempted a brief rearguard act with 30 off 48 balls, but he fell to the legspin of Sharmarh Brooks, who added two more wickets to his tally as Bangladesh were dismissed for a paltry 112.
Earlier, West Indies rode on a patient 103-ball 66 from Horace Miller, the left-handed opening batsman. West Indies lost Adrian Barath and Kieron Powell to medium-pacer Dolar Mahmud for the addition of only seven runs, before Miller and Darren Bravo, the brother of West Indies allrounder Dwayne, added exactly 50 for the third wicket. After Bravo was run out for 55, Miller soon brought up his half-century during a 55-run fourth-wicket stand with Brooks.
But West Indies lost the duo in quick succession; Brooks falling to offspinner Mohammad Shakil for 22, while Miller was run out by Talukder. West Indies, were in a spot of bother at 132 for 5, but their tail could not get going, with Mahmud finishing with figures of 4 for 26.
