  • Published at 03:31 am July 29th, 2019

The teams will play a total of eight games - four against each other - before the top two teams play in the final on August 11.

Bangladesh U-19 cricket team showed another strong all-round display as they beat host England by seven wickets in their tri-nation U-19 tournament in Cheltenham Sunday. 

After winning the toss, the young Tigers did a creditable job of restricting their opponent to 242/9 in 50 overs before their batsmen sailed home by making 245/3 in 48.3 overs. 

Left-arm seamer Mrittunjoy Chowdhury was the pick of the bowlers as he grabbed four wickets conceding 52 runs. 

Opening bowler Tanzim Hasan Sakib also picked up two wickets. 

English opener Ben Charlesworth made a patient 68-run knock and got good support from Jack Haynes and Lewis Goldsworthy, who scored 35 and 36 respectively batting at Nos 3 and 4, as the host reached a vantage position of 151/2 in the 33rd over.

But the young Tigers picked up wickets in regular intervals to resist the opponent from getting a big total.

Bangladesh lost opener Tanzid Hasan for 20 in the eighth over when the score was 37 but his opening partner Parvez Hossain Emon, who scored 32, made a crucial 43-run stand with Mahmudul Hasan Joy for the second wicket to keep the chase on. 

Towhid Hridoy, who scored 70 in their first match against England, continued his rich vein of form as he formed a match-winning 136-run stand with Joy for the third wicket. 

Joy was dismissed for 81 off 110 balls in the 46th over but Hridoy stayed till the end making 75 off 93 balls. 

With this win, Bangladesh now have five points from four matches as they have won against host England twice and their match against India was washed out Saturday. 

India also have five points from four matches and England have two points from same number of matches. 

The teams will play a total of eight games - four against each other - before the top two teams play in the final on August 11.
