Bangladesh's Afif Hossain runs rampant against Canada

A half-century and a five-for, it was all in a day's work for the 18-year old offspinning allrounder

Bangladesh Under-19s 264 for 8 (Hridoy 122, Jamkhandi 5-48) beat Canada Under-19s 198 (Arslan 63, Afif 5-43) by 66 runs
Scorecard
There were performances aplenty in Lincoln, but perhaps the most decisive one came from Afif Hossain. The 18-year old, who has already had a taste of top-flight cricket playing in the Bangladesh Premier League, and at the Under-19 World Cup he made a bigger name for himself by striking a half-century when his team was flagging and then picking up a five-for to seal the game.
Canada had done quite well, at least at the start of each innings. Seam bowler Faisal Jamkhandi struck in the second over of the match, eventually finishing 5 for 48, and the captain Arslan Khan made 63 at No. 3. The end, though, was a problem. They gave up 84 runs in the last 10 overs, with Towhid Hridoy striking a magnificent 122 off 126 balls. And while batting, after being 170 for 4 in a chase of 265, they were bowled out for 198.
Afif's offspin was the major reason behind such a collapse. He began his first spell by dismissing a Canadian opener. Randhir Sandhu gone. His second spell followed a similar script. Pranav Sharma gone. Coming back to bowl a third, he took out their top-scorer Arslan and finished his spell with a double-wicket over. Considering Afif had also lifted Bangladesh from 91 for 3 to 202 for 4, he was an easy choice for Man of the Match.
