Bangladesh Under-19 281 for 9 (Mosaddek 98, Mendis 3-39) beat Sri Lanka Under-19 277 for 8 (Samarawickrama 83, Weerakkody 65, Jubair 3-60) by 1 wicket

Bangladesh Under-19 fought off an extraordinary final over by Ramesh Mendis to win the third one-dayer by one wicket against Sri Lanka Under-19 in Mirpur. The offspinner Mendis took three wickets, but Mustafizur Rahman hit the final ball for four to give the hosts a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.

After conceding one run off the first ball, Mendis removed Nehaduzzaman, Rifat Pradhan and Jubair Hossain in the space of four deliveries to give his side a great chance to win. But it was still not enough for the visitors.

The chase for Bangladesh was going properly when Joyraz Sheik and captain Mosaddek Hossain put together a stand of 126 for the fourth wicket. Joyraz made 74 off 95 balls while Mosaddek missed a hundred by two runs.

Earlier, Sri Lanka posted 277 for 8 through half-centuries by Sadeera Samarawickrama who made 83 off 101 balls and Sandun Weerakkody who scored 65 off 61 balls, while for the hosts, legspinner Jubair took 3 for 60.

I'm surprised Taskin Ahmed is not yet playing for the under-19 team.

we will see lot from these intelligent Bangladesh fans in coming years. guys like All the way, Rising Team, warm coffee were hiding in caves while they got thrashed by Zimbabweans in clash against two Minnows (Zim & BAn) but i always rate Zimbabwe as a greatest from these two sides. we will see champions talking once again in a rare win against a giants from these Bangladeshis, and they will hide again for 3 or 5 years again

So Sri Lanka are still struggling with the 'minnows'. Looks like they are going down and Bangladesh are climbing up :) our youths are far more talented it seems. I really hope they can replace these Sri Lankan players and do even better :)

The Tigers are roaring everywhere in BD, in Zim! The senior team took the control in the 2nd test against Zim so far and the young Royal Bengal Tigers beat SL youth in the 3rd ODI and is leading the series by 2-1! Now see, the haters of BD cricket went in hiding again in the caves whereas they came out in large numbers when BD lost the 1st test in Zim!

Mosaddek Hossain is the next Shakib Al Hasan!! it's important he is fit when the under-19 team tours England this year so he can get a taste of the conditions.

Its very likely Bangladesh will be surpassing teams like Sri Lanka etc once their seniors retire. Don't forget it was our under-19 system where players like Nasir, Anamul and Mominul have come through and maybe in a few years next stars Mosaddek and Taskin will be playing for the national team and we'll be a force. Our future is fantastic!!

Good to see that Under 19 team playing well. The way the senior team is failing nowadays we need something to cheer about. Well Done U-19 Team :)

who is deciding on bowlers in the match? captain or someone else? 2nd match Roshan Anurudhdha bowls 7 overs 2/27. 2nd match he bowls 7 overs 1/26. why on earth isn't he bowling his quota. this guy is a frontliner for our school and bowls his quota of overs all the time.
