Scorecard

A 91-run partnership between Taibur Rahman and Noor Hossain kept Bangladesh Under-19s hopes alive on the second day at the Khulna Divisional Stadium. The unbeaten eighth-wicket partnership buoyed the side after the Sri Lanka U-19 bolwers looked to have given the visitors firm control of the match.

Kamrul Islam removed Shameera Weerasinghe for his fourth wicket, as Sri Lanka U-19 were bowled out after adding only nine to their overnight score of 271. The response from the hosts was insipid, as Chathura Peiris and Lahiru Jayarathne removed the top three batsmen with just 36 on the board. Weerasinghe legspin proved too hot as well, as he accounted for Sabbir Rahman and captain Mahmudul Hasan.

Wicketkeeper Anamul Haque stroked a composed 43, but when he was trapped leg before by the economical Imesh Udayanga, Bangladesh U-19 were staring down the barrel at 138 for 7. Rahman and Hossain though, battled bravely to salvage the situation. It was a patient innings from both tailenders, with Rahman hitting four boundaries en route to his half-century and Hossain stroking six fours during his 94-ball stay.
