Bangladesh crush Canada by nine wickets

Bangladesh Under-19s crushed Canada Under-19s by nine wickets and 217 balls to spare in the playoff for the ninth place at the Under-19 World Cup. Bangladesh put Canada in after winning the toss and their bowlers made the most of the morning conditions in Abu Dhabi.

Canada's openers got to 11 before the crash began. They lost six wickets for 17 runs to slump to 28 for 6, before limping to 75. They were dismissed in 27.1 overs. Mustafizur Rahman claimed 3 for 11 for Bangladesh, while Saeed Sarkar and Mehedy Hasan took two each.

Bangladesh made short work of the chase, achieving the target in 13.5 overs. The openers added 73 before Joyraz Sheik was dismissed for 33. He was the only wicket they lost. Shadman Islam was unbeaten on 35.

A patient half-century from Ryan Burl helped Zimbabwe Under-19s to a six-wicket win against Namibia Under-19s in the ninth-place quarterfinal playoff in Abu Dhabi. Burl hit only one four during his 55 not out, and put up 66 for the fourth wicket with Kieran Geyle, as Zimbabwe successfully chased down 195 in 45.1 overs.

Namibia, put in to bat, were restricted to 194 for 8 from their 50 overs thanks to some incisive bowling from the offspinner Patrick Mambo who finished with 4 for 31 as he ran through Namibia's top order. Xander Pitchers top-scored with 78 and added 87 for the sixth wicket with SJ Loftie-Eaton, but apart from them, only two other batsmen reached double digits for Namibia.
