Bangladesh U-19 233 for 6 (Ayub 88, Hasan 44,Rameez 2-30) beat Pakistan U-19 220 (Asad 106, Mir 64, Shuvo 5-38, Mahmud 4-40) by 13 runs
Suhrawadi Shuvo, the Bangladesh Under-19 captain, triggered a late collapse and claimed five of the last six wickets to fall as his team successfully defended 233 against Pakistan Under-19 to square the five-match ODI series two-all.
After losing their first four wickets with only 49 on the board, Pakistan were within sight of victory at 183 for 4 thanks to a 134-run fifth-wicket partnership between Ali Asad (106) and Umair Mir (64). The collapse - with the home side losing six wickets for 37 runs including the last three for only one run - completed a remarkable comeback by Bangladesh who were precariously placed at 57 for 3 after opting to bat.
Marshall Ayub and Mahmudul Hasan put on 126 for the fifth wicket after Mithun Ali, Bangladesh's opener and wicketkeeper, had scored 33. Ayub hammered 88 runs off 91 balls with five fours and a six while Hasan chipped in with a valuable 44 to enable their team post a respectable total.
In reply, Dolar Mahmud tore through the top order and finished with four wickets for 40 runs before Shuvo, following a resurgent knock by Asad, bowled Bangladesh to victory to level the series 2-2.
The fifth and final match of the series is to be played here at the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) Sports Complex Stadium on Friday.
