Scorecard

Daryl Mitchell's second List-A hundred handed Bangladesh A their fifth successive loss of the tour, ahead of the one-day series against England Lions. The visitors went down to Worcestershire by six wickets at New Road after scoring 274.

Worcestershire knocked off the target in 47.3 overs, mainly due to Mitchell's 101 and contributions from debutant Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Alexei Kervezee. Mitchell and Kohler-Cadmore put on 97 runs for the opening partnership, before Mitchell put on another 92 with Kervezee for the second wicket. The two stands took Worcestershire needing only 85 at less than four an over.

Mitchell struck nine fours and a six in his 102-ball knock, making it his third consecutive 50-plus score after half-centuries against Kent and Nottinghamshire in the Yorkshire Bank 40.

Kohler-Cadmore started the charge, hammering Al-Amin Hossain for two fours and a six off successive deliveries in the sixth over that went for 16 runs. Boundaries flowed quite easily thereafter, and his dismissal for 47 off 52 balls wasn't a restriction. Kervezee slipped in well, making a 35-ball 45.

None of the Bangladesh A bowlers made an impact or curbed the scoring, with only Robiul Islam offering some control and Sohag Gazi taking two wickets.

The only positive for Bangladesh A was their batting, particularly Anamul Haque's second List-A century. He reached the mark in 119 balls, and got out three balls later with eight fours and three sixes to his name. He got support from middle-order batsman Mominul Haque, with whom he added 96 for the third wicket. The pair fell within five overs with Mominul making 64 off 60. Later, Naeem Islam breezed to an unbeaten 35-ball 47. Left-arm spinner Shaaiq Choudhry took the first three wickets while Charles Morris took two.

Bangladesh A's three-match one-day series against England Lions begins on August 20 in Bristol.
