Spinners wrap up series for Bangladesh

ESPNcricinfo staff

Bangladesh Under-19s 168 (Shadman 48, Jashimuddin 33, Jones 5-23) beat West Indies Under-19s 101 (Solozano 35*, Nihaduzzaman 5-12, Mehedy 4-25) by 67 runs

Offspinners Mehedy Hasan and Nihaduzzaman picked up nine wickets between them to bowl West Indies Under-19s out for 101 and secure a 4-3 series win for Bangladesh Under-19s after a 67-run victory in Guyana.

West Indies, who had won back-to-back games to level the series, were never really in the run-chase and lost wickets at regular intervals, as Mehedy and Nihaduzzaman wrecked West Indies' batting line-up to defend 168 with ease.

Jeremy Solozano offered some brief resistance with an unbeaten 35, but apart from a 33-run stand for the seventh wicket with Ramaal Lewis, he had little help from the other batsmen, who altogether made just 33. Nihaduzzaman finished with 5 for 12 in 7.5 overs, while Mehedy picked up four scalps to take his total tally for the series to 13, just one behind Jubair Hossain, as West Indies were bowled out in 33.5 overs.

Bangladesh were earlier propelled by opener Shadman Islam's 48, and his 56-run second-wicket stand with Jashimuddin, who made 33. The pair finished as the top two run-getters of the tournament with 259 and 208 respectively. Five of Bangladesh's batsmen departed for ducks, but important contributions of 28 and 20 from Mehedy and Yasir Ali respectively, pushed the visitors to 168 in 44 overs.

Medium-pacer Jerome Jones was the pick of the bowlers for West Indies, taking a hat-trick to dismiss Yasir, Nihaduzzaman and Jubair in the 44th over, and finished with figures of 6-1-23-5.

    I watched the match... It was competitive. I really surprise to see young tigers team work. I have never seen when someone did a good fielding and everybody run to courage, first time I thought a wicket but it's not , they celebrate because they save the run. Batting was not good enough but bowling especially spin was great. Fielding as I said was fantastic. I lough when I saw that after wining they are dancing (Gayle style) Gangnam style which our Tigers dance after wining the series in Bangladesh. Also I notice after they win they thanks to Almighty Allah by sejda (Pray). Thanks a lot our young tigers and we will see you are leading Bangladesh near future.

    This is a very strong WI team who had many recent success against several top teams recently including IND, PAK. So BD U19 whose avg age was below 17 did excellent condidering they played an away series, had to play a very strong and experienced pace lineup, and not to mention against some serious biased umpiring.

    Congrats to Junior Tiger!! Bangladesh played against 13 men (including two umpires).Very poor umpiring by two WI umpires in Fifth & sixth match respectively.ICC should take step against such bad umpiring though junior tiger crossed the all barrier & won the series.They are also contender for championship title in upcoming Under-19 world cup.hope they will reach their goal.Go Tiger Cub, Go .....
