Bangladesh Under-19 270 for 2 (Majumder 129, Haque 106) beat Zimbabwe Under-19 149 )Chirimuta 40, Rahman 4-13) by 121 runs

Zimbabwe proved no match to Bangladesh in Bogra, losing by 121 runs and conceding the series 0-5. Bangladesh, after being asked to bat, took full toll, with openers Anamul Haque and Amit Majumder hammering centuries to add 231, and help take their team to a match-winning score of 270. Haque was the more measured of the two, striking nine fours and a six, in his 109 while Majumder's 129 came in 133 balls and was laced with 15 fours and three sixes.

Zimbabwe, in their reply, began in encouraging fashion with Daly Scott and Gary Chirimuta adding 60 for the opening wicket in ten overs. But Sabbir Rahman then stepped in to take four wickets for just 13 in under nine overs and triggered a collapse where six wickets fell for 33. The lower order added a further 56 but a Bangladesh win, by then, was a foregone conclusion.
