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.

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!!!!!!!!
