All-round Mosaddek stars for Bangladesh
Bangladesh Under-19s 286 for 4 (Mosaddek 110, Sadman 86, Barber 2-57) beat England Under-19s 248 (Hameed 67, Duckett 56, Mosaddek 3-38, Pradhan 3-59) by 38 runs
Mosaddek Hossain produced a superb all-round display with a century followed by three wickets to help propel Bangladesh Under-19s to a 38-run win against England Under-19s. The home side suffered their second successive defeat after their 46-run loss to Pakistan on Tuesday.
The visitors amassed 286 for 4, propped up by Mosaddek's unbeaten 110 off 113 balls as he struck nine fours and a couple of sixes. He also added 156 for the third wicket with opener Sadman Islam, who made 86 off 126 balls. Tom Barber was England's most successful bowler on the day, picking up two wickets.
The home side's reply was going smoothly until Mosaddek's offspin caught them napping. He collected three wickets, including that of captain Ben Duckett who made 56. Haseeb Hameed top scored with 67 off 96 balls while Will Rhodes smashed three sixes in his 32, but it was not enough. Seamer Rifat Pradhan also took three wickets, though he was slightly expensive.
Bangladesh take on Pakistan in the next match of the tri-series on Friday, at Market Harborough.
