Bangladesh Under-19 pacer Tanzim Sakib took a four-wicket haul to guide his side to a seven-wicket win in the lone youth Twenty20 international against their English counterparts in Cox’s Bazar on Sunday.
BKSP pacer Sakib took 4-30 while Rakibul Hasan, Shamim Hossain and Mrittunjoy Chowdhury took one wicket each to restrict England U-19 to 120-8 in their stipulated overs.
Mahmudul Hasan top-scored with 44 as Parvez Hossain and Bogura’s Tanzid Tamim made useful contributions of 33 and 22 respectively to take Bangladesh U-19 to 123-3 in 18.5 overs.
Opting to bat, England were reduced to 17-2 in two overs, with Sakib dismissing openers Jamie Smith (five) and Jordan Cox (12) in the second over before removing Will Smeed (15) and Luke Hollman (11) to complete his four-for.
George Hill played a lone hand for his side, scoring 34 off 35 balls before getting stumped off Rakibul as his side managed a poultry score.
In reply, Mahmudul and Tamim put a 50-run opening stand before the latter was dismissed by Hollman in 7.4 overs.
Mahmudul and Parvez then added 46-run for the second wicket before both of them were dismissed by Hill, but Akbar Ali (eight) and Shamim (six) remained unbeaten to take their side home with seven balls to spare.
The sides will next play the first of the three-match youth one-day international series on January 29 in the same venue.
