The Bangladesh spinners gobbled up eight wickets to bowl West Indies out for 114 and secure an eight-wicket win in the first Youth ODI in Mirpur.

Left-arm spinner Saleh Ahmed Shawon took four wickets while offspinners Sanjit Saha and Saeed Sarkar took two each as West Indies were knocked over in 39.2 overs. Opener Gidron Pope made 31 off 41 balls with two fours and three sixes and Emmanuel Stewart added 30 off 66 balls, but seven of their team-mates fell for single-digits.

West Indies' hopes flickered to life when Bangladesh opener Pinak Ghosh fell in the second over to Obaid McCoy but Saif Hassan and Nazmul Hossain Shanto added 70 runs together in an unbroken third wicket stand and finished the game off in the 21st over. Saif made an unbeaten 39 off 68 balls with five fours and a six while Shanto's 41 not out came off just 36 balls with six fours and a six.

    Congratulations young Tigers. My only concern is that when it really matter's, you boy's don't deliver. Hope you can compete with India, Aussies and Kiwi's. Just stick to basic and take one over at a time

    Bangladesh always had strong u19 teams. this team looks no difference. this is their best chance to finish at the top. I am predicting an India vs Bangladesh final. but India looks very strong on paper. it would be a shock to see them loose in Asia.

    Bangladesh is proving itself an extremely capable team at home. With their youth ranks also looking promising, the future bodes well for them! I do wish more importance would also be given to Test and First Class cricket though.

    Bangladesh lacking quality pacer is a thing of past.I think this bd u19 team is good enough to be champion if they manage to deal with the pressure of being home team.

    Only spin will not do for Bangladesh because there also asian giant participanting in the WC. They need quality fast bowlers which they always lacking.
