All-round Bangladesh square series

Bangladesh U-19s 259 for 7 (Mosaddek 70, Jashimuddin 63) beat West Indies U-19s 196 for 9 (Solozano 44, Ferdous 5-55) by 63 runs

A strong all-round performance by the Bangladesh Under-19s helped them win the second ODI against West Indies Under-19s in Georgetown and square the seven-match series 1-1.

Bangladesh turned up a much better batting performance compared to the first ODI in which they were bowled out for 135. The resurgence was led by their wicketkeeper batsman, Jashimuddin, who scored 63 off 81 deliveries, and Mosaddek Hossain, who scored 70. The two added 92 runs for the third wicket and laid a solid platform. Nazmul Hossain Shanto then added some quick runs towards the end of the innings to take Bangladesh beyond 250. They were generously helped by the West Indies bowlers, who gave away 41 runs in extras.

West Indies suffered an early blow when last match's half-centurion Leroy Lugg was dismissed for 1, but they were revived by a 70-run stand between Tagenarine Chanderpaul and Jeremy Solozano. Once Bangladesh broke the partnership, though, regular wickets kept on falling. Left-arm spinner Rahatul Ferdous was the most successful bowler as he picked up five wickets.

The teams are scheduled to play the third ODI in Providence on Friday, October 11.
