The five youth ODIs between the junior Tigers and the young Kiwis will all be held at Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln, Christchurch on September 29, October 2, 6, 9 and 13 respectively
Bangladesh U-19 cricket team began their tour of New Zealand with a thumping 146-run win (Duckworth/Lewis/Stern method) against Canterbury XI in the warm-up match Friday at Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln.
The visiting side posted a commanding 388 in their stipulated 50 overs for the loss of seven wickets, riding on a whirlwind 73-ball 102 from Tanzid Hasan Tamim.
The other Bangladesh U-19 batters also chipped in with quickfire contributions as Anik Sarkar made 26 off 21 deliveries, Mohammad Parvez Hossain Emon scored 48 off 69 balls, vice captain Towhid Hridoy hammered 52 off 40 deliveries, Shahadat Hossain registered 57 off 51 balls and Shamim Hossain struck 42 off 14 deliveries.
In reply, Canterbury XI were in all sorts of trouble, losing their seventh wicket with 117 on the board.
Were it not for the unbroken 80-run eighth wicket stand between Dunlop (48) and Harpar (35), the home side would have been bundled out for a paltry total.

Canterbury XI put up 197/7 in 45 overs when rain brought an end to the proceedings, giving Bangladesh U-19 a convincing win in accordance with the DLS method.
Shariful Islam and Hasan Murad bagged two wickets apiece for the junior Tigers, while Avishek Das, Shamim and Mohammad Mrittunjoy Chowdhury Nipun notched one each.
The five youth ODIs between the junior Tigers and the young Kiwis will all be held at the same venue on September 29, October 2, 6, 9 and 13 respectively.
Prior to their departure for New Zealand, Bangladesh U-19 captain Akbar Ali said, "I think everybody is thinking positively. There are five one-dayers in this series and everyone is thinking about how we can win it."
The junior Tigers will be confident heading into the series after contesting the final of the U-19 Asia Cup against India where they lost agonizingly by five runs earlier this month in Sri Lanka.
