Bangladesh Under-19s 169 for 6 (Salman Hossain 59, Wood 3-14, Hutton 3-28) beat England Under-19s 168 (Taskin Ahmed 4-46, Mosaddek Hossain 4-26) by four wickets
Taskin Ahmed and Mosaddek Hossain took four wickets apiece to bowl Bangladesh Under-19s to their third win of the series. They helped dismiss England Under-19s for 168 at the Sylhet Stadium, after which their batsmen achieved the target with four wickets and 12.4 overs to spare. The hosts lead the seven-match series 3-1.
England U-19s started shakily after getting sent in and by the 21st over they had lost half their side for 68 runs. The lower-middle order offered some resistance and Aneesh Kapil top-scored with 48. He was dismissed with the score on 131 in the 37th over and the last four wickets crumbled after that for ten runs. Taskin had wrecked the top-order to finish with 4 for 46, while Mosaddek mopped up the tail during his 4 for 26.
Bangladesh U-19s made a brisk but wobbly start to their innings and were 36 for 2 in the sixth over. Salman Hossain, the No. 4, then anchored the rest of the chase with an innings of 59 off 89 deliveries. His partnership of 80 with Aslam Hossain for the third wicket charted the course for victory. Though Bangladesh u-19s lost four wickets for 50 runs to slip from 116 for 3, they were placed well enough to seal the win.
