ESPNcricinfo staff

Bangladesh Under-19s 286 for 8 (Shadman 95, Jashimuddin 68, Gabriel 3-51) beat West Indies Under-19s 88 (Ferdous 3-9, Jubair 3-7) by 198 runs

West Indies Under-19 crumbled against spin bowling to crash to a 198-run defeat against Bangladesh Under-19 in the Youth ODI series in Guyana. Chasing 287, a middle-order collapse saw West Indies reach only 88, giving Bangladesh a 2-1 lead in the seven-match series.

West Indies began their chase steadily as openers Leroy Lugg and Jeremy Solozano added 39 runs. However, offspinner Mehedy Hassan and left-arm spinners Nihaduzzaman and Rahatul Ferdous dismissed the West Indies top order in the space of three overs to leave the batting side tottering at 44 for 3. Fabian Allen and wicketkeeper Shimron Hetmyre had a brief partnership of 24 runs, but once Hetmyre fell to Nihaduzzaman, West Indies slid from 68 for 4 to 88 all out in just 13 deliveries. Legspinner Jubair Hossain picked up a hat-trick, dismissing Jofra Archer, Jerome Jones and Bryan Charles for ducks. He finished with figures of 3 for 7 off two overs, with Ferdous also taking three.

Earlier, Shadman Islam anchored the Bangladesh innings with a solid 95, after his side chose to bat. Shadman lost his opening partner, Munim Shahriar, early but combined with wicketkeeper Jashimuddin to add 116 runs for the second wicket. Jashimuddin scored 68 off 92 balls with six fours before he was dismissed by Taryck Gabriel. Shadman then added another 60 runs with Mossadek Hossain, and was also involved in useful partnerships with Nazmul Hussain Shanto and Mehedy Hasan, which helped consolidate Bangladesh's score. Although the side lost three quick wickets towards the end, Shadman's knock had ensured the side reached a strong 286 for 8.

    Bangladeshi Hat tricks are in everywhere! In W, Indies, in Bangladesh by the juniors, by the seniors! The Royal Bengal Tigers are roaring and roaring high all over the world, no matters the ICC gives us the less tests to play, no matters we are playing tests of six months/ one year gap! Bravo! Sabbash! Hurray!

    Its good to see at least so far teams like West Indies, Sri Lanka and New Zealand that Bangladesh are no longer pushovers whether at youth level or senior level.

    @harithavsoman:- Yes they should but to be fair, India under-19 are likely to win all the games. Their batting is just far superior but would be a good test nonetheless.
