Bangladesh Under-19 237 for 5 (Mosaddek 79*, Al-Amin 65) beat England Under-19 161 (Bell-Drummond 55, Al-Amin 5-33) by 76 runs
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. Mossadek was unbeaten on 79 off 96 balls, hitting seven fours and a six, while Al-Amin too scored at a good clip, managing 65 off 76 before being run out. Craig Overton picked up three wickets.
In their response, England were bowled out for 161 with only Daniel Bell-Drummond offering any significant resistance, making 55 off 68 balls. There was serious lack of support at the other end and Bangladesh finished the job in 41.2 overs. Al-Amin had figures of 5 for 33.
