Bangladesh Under-19s 269 for 6 in 50 overs (Anamul Haque 78, Mominul Haque 57) vs England Under-19s 18 for 0 in 3.3 overs. Match abandoned due to rain.
Rain played spoilsport in the second ODI between Bangladesh Under-19s and England U-19 at Grace Road, bringing the game to a close soon after Bangladesh posted a challenging total batting first.
Bangladesh were guided primarily by opening batsman and wicketkeeper Anamul Haque, who top scored with a patient 78 off 108 balls. He shared a vital 67-run partnership with Mominul Haque, who made a 69-ball 57, to steady the Bangladesh innings.
An 18-ball 41 from allrounder Alauddin Babu late in the innings propelled the Bangladeshis towards a competitive total. Rain, however, cut short hopes of getting a full game in and the match was abandoned in the fourth over of England's reply.
England lead the five-match one-day series 1-0 after winning the first ODI by 84 runs.
