That brings us to the end of our coverage from the Under-19 World Cup today. Analysis from Chittagong will follow. Do watch out for that. Until next time, it's goodbye from all of us here at the commentary desk. Cheers!

Ben Taylor: Got a little nervy at one stage, but delighted with the win. We're disappointed that we didn't get more. We got some dot balls when the spinners came on, that put pressure on them in the chase. Our team has bowled brilliantly, didn't offer them a lot. Hope to keep this going.

Shimon Hetmyer: We had a good chance to chase it down, but we started badly. It was a par total. We need to assess the surfaces a little better and apply ourselves accordingly. There are a few encouraging performances, especially the way Pope batted. The rest of the players can take a page out of his book

Dan Lawrence is the Player of the Match for his 55 and 2 for 28. "It's a nice start, a great team performance. The pitch we played on early on was a bit like ones back home, there was some movement but once we got in, you could play your shots. My role with the ball is to take wickets. You won't always be economical, but I fortunately managed to get wickets despite not starting off well.

Two in two for England, then. Another emphatic win. What we saw today was tremendous depth and variety in their bowling. Sam Curran was the standout with his swing, and later in the piece, the slower bowlers, particularly Dan Lawrence and Mason Crane came into their own. While one got it to spin back in, the other used all his legspin variations, and mixed it up with the wrong-uns. West Indies were in it when Pope went hammer and tongs at the start, but Carty's inability to rotate strike kept spiralling the asking rate in an already tall chase. The lower order fought valiantly, but the final push didn't really come on the face of some excellent death bowling

Mahmood to KA Kallicharan, OUT

right through bat and pad. That's the end of that. This was full and coming back in, he looked to flick across the line, lazy effort really, and was beaten for pace.

Kirstan Kallicharan b Mahmood 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0
Mahmood to Paul, OUT

an outstanding catch at point! It was full, he backed away, reached out for it, the ball flew off the middle, but couldn't get past the diving Bartlett, who threw himself to his right, took full control of the ball even as he landed on his elbows. West Indies right on the edge

Keemo Paul c Bartlett b Mahmood 65 (87m 58b 7x4 1x6) SR: 112.07
Mahmood to Joseph, 1 run

tails back into middle and leg, turned towards fine leg

Mahmood to Paul, 1 run

backs away to go over the infield, but he follows him, squeezed towards midwicket in the end

end of over 4312 runs • 1 wicket

Ben Green4-0-40-1
Saqib Mahmood8-1-40-2
Green to Paul, 1 run

check-drives a slower delivery, just eludes cover fielder at the edge of the circle, excellent change of pace

Green to Joseph, 1 run

full and straight on middle from wide of the crease, he gets a thick edge towards square leg

Green to Joseph, 2 runs

poor ball, too full, he flicks it in between the two fielders at deep fine and deep square

Green to Paul, 1 run

slower one on middle, tucked wide towards short midwicket, bowler runs across to collect

Green to Smith, OUT

slogs across the line, ends up slicing it high in the air, keeper calls, and calmly takes the skier. As easy as they come. He took the pace off, so the batsman had to generate the power, which he couldn't.

Odean Smith c †Davies b Green 2 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100
Green to Smith, 5 wide

poor ball, the slower ball's gone horribly wrong, keeper can't get across, the short fine leg fielder dives over the ball too, five handy runs

Green to Smith, 2 runs

length ball, lofted over the bowler's head, right in between the two fielders

end of over 426 runs • 1 wicket

Saqib Mahmood8-1-40-2
Ben Green3-0-28-0
Mahmood to Frew, OUT

fine, fine catch at deep midwicket. It was up in the air for a long time, he didn't time it as well as he would have liked, Brad Taylor back pedalled, and then tumbled over as he took the catch. Excellent judgment there.

Michael Frew c BJ Taylor b Mahmood 7 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 87.5
Mahmood to Frew, 2 runs

backs away and crunches one to long-off, Dan Lawrence ran in a little too much and ended up getting a bad bounce, allows the extra run

Mahmood to Paul, 1 run

angled down leg, tickled down to fine leg

Mahmood to Frew, 1 run

full toss on middle, swung down the ground to long-on, two was the call but they were never going to get it

Mahmood to Paul, 1 run

too full and on middle and leg, lofted down to long on

Mahmood to Frew, 1 run

Andre Russell like loading on that one, smacked hard to long-on

end of over 418 runs

mistimes a cut to point
