Bangladesh Under-19s 265 for 8 (Mosaddek 81, Al-Amin 50) beat England Under-19s 221 (Bell-Durrumond 55, Noor Hossain 4-31) by 44 runs
Mosaddek Hossain made 81 to set up Bangladesh Under-19s' comfortable win over England Under-19s in Chittagong. Bangladesh were asked to bat first and a partnership of 114 between Mosaddek and Al-Amin helped them to a total that England never looked like chasing.
Mosaddek struck 11 fours in his innings, from 84 balls, and built what proved to be the match-winning stand with Al-Amin, whose 50 came from 41 balls before he became the first of three wickets for England seamer Shozair Ali. Ali then ran out Noor Hossain, without him facing a ball, as England fought back with four wickets for two runs and Ali finished with 3 for 58.
England's chase included contributions from Daniel Bell-Drummond, who made 55 at the top of the order, and Ben Foakes, who came in at three and made 32 from 22 balls. Both players fell to the legspin of Noor. He went on to take 4 for 31 as England lost too many cheap wickets; Aneesh Kapil's 43, which included two sixes, came too late to save the innings.
