Bangladesh Under-19 222 for 9 (Sarkar 83, Mosaddek Hossain 77) beat West Indies Under-19 118 (Coleman 42, Jubair 3-30) by 104 runs

A comprehensive bowling performance from Bangladesh Under-19s set up their 104-run win in the first ODI against the touring West Indies Under-19 in Chittagong.

Having won the toss and elected to bat, Bangladesh were struggling at 84 for 6 in the 31st over, in danger of being skittled out for a low score. A 119-run stand between Mosaddek Hossain and Saeed Sarkar boosted the score beyond 200. Sarkar smashed a 66-ball 83 with eight fours and four sixes before he was dismissed by Jerome Jones. The stand between Mosaddek and Sarkar came in 17.3 overs at a brisk clip of 6.80 runs per over. Mosaddek continued batting, stretching the score to 222 before he fell for 77 off 107 balls to Fabian Allen in the last over. West Indies captain Ramaal Lewis was the most successful bowler taking 3 for 24, while Gudakesh Motie and Allen picked up two wickets apiece.

Chasing 223, West Indies were struggling at 41 for 6, with pacer Mehedi Hassan, offspinner Mosaddek and left-arm spinner Nihaduzzaman claiming the early wickets. Tristan Coleman tried to instill some respectability into the total - first adding 35 runs for the seventh wicket with Lewis and then guiding No. 11 batsman Jones in a 33-run, last-wicket stand - but the side couldn't recover from the poor start and the innings ended at 118 in the 45th over. Legspinner Jubair Hossain cleaned up the tail to finish with 3 for 30 in 10 overs. Hassan, Mosaddek and Nihaduzzaman finished with two wickets each.

    At least some u-19 players need to train with the national team,so they can prepare well for the asia cup

    The future is clear and precise. Our under-19 team has been severely weakened with the likes of Nasir, Mominul etc moving on to the main team and yet our youths can at least challenge these so called "top 8". Lets give them a 7-0 banglawash.
