England Under-19 slumped to a heavy defeat at the hands of Bangladesh Under-19 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. The 76-run loss gave the hosts a 5-2 win in the seven-match series. Al-Amin starred in an all-round effort for Bangladesh, making a half-century and picking up five wickets.

After being put in to bat, Bangladesh managed a competitive 237 for 5. They had been in a slightly difficult situation at 107 for 4 but Mossadek Hossain and Al-Amin hit half-centuries and added 130 for the fifth wicket.

    Well done Bangladeshi youngsters and the coaching staff!!! Just two advices, make sure you maintain your hunger to succeed and learn from your mistakes. The day when you lose these important virtues, you should know it's time to quit.

    Sign of improvement for bang guys. Actually at this level there is no difference between England and Bangladesh. After that the young tigers remain young and the lions learn how to roar. That's the difference of cricket between two countries. Alas!!!!!!!!
