ESPNcricinfo staff

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.

    well done bd . BD need quality fast bowlers to become Super Power . For this BCB need send their under-23 side 2-3 aged players to tour SA,IND, ENG , NZ, regularly as home pitches is not suitable for pacers ..

  • Muhammad Rakibul on August 8, 2013, 7:25 GMT

    BD need an off-spin all rounder. Mosaddek can fulfill the demand within next 2/3 years. Just need the proper nurture.

    Bangladesh have many talented cricketers but we only have handful of seamers and almost zero pacers. Every youngster wants to be Shakib no one wants to be Mashrafe, fearing injury.

    well done Bengali.

    Well done boys! we all know its not at all easy for a subcontinent team to play in England and win emphatically! but us Bangla fans are right here to support you in every way win, tie or lose. Just continue to play good positive Cricket and that's what counts. Congratulation to rising all-rounder Mosaddek Hossain for an excellent performance and have no doubt has the potential to be just as good if not even better than Shakib one-day as long as he continues to work hard. Don't forget fans Bangladesh promising young fast bowler Taskin Ahmed in not even on this tour and still our boys can do it handsomely.

    I think Bangladesh is going to be a cricketing super power in the upcoming decades. It has many quality cricketers in the national team with great cricketers in the pipeline as well.
