Bangladesh Under-19s crushed West Indies Under-19s by 171 runs in Chittagong to clinch the three-match Youth ODI series with a game to spare. The home side continued their steady rise in the age-group level leading into the Under-19 World Cup which begins on January 27 in Chittagong.

Batting first, Bangladesh piled up 299 for 5 in 50 overs. Opener Pinak Ghosh led the way with his second Youth ODI hundred. He struck nine fours in his 135-ball knock. Pinak shared a 179-run third-wicket stand with Nazmul Hossain Shanto, who made 79 off 98 balls with five fours and a six. Captain Mehedi Hasan Miraz struck an unbeaten 26-ball 54, with seven fours and a six, to lift his side in the death.

In reply, West Indies were bowled out for 128 runs in 49.3 overs as Mehedi Hasan Rana and Saleh Ahmed Shawon claimed three wickets apiece. Keemo Paul top-scored for the visitors with 25, as just two West Indies batsmen crossed the 20-run mark.

The third and final Youth ODI will be played at the same venue on January 16.

    This U19 team looks really good. They've beaten defending Champ SA in both home & away series by 6-1 & 5-2 respectively. This side should go far in this edition of U19 World Cup. I'm hopeful that many youngsters of this squad will make their way to national side.
