Bangladesh Under-19 team completed a comfortable eight-wicket win against their English counterparts on the final day of the first Youth Test to go 1-0 up in the two-match series at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Sunday.
Left-arm spinner Minhazur Rahman, who finished with 6-28 in the second innings, claimed all four remaining wickets on the fourth day to bundle out England Under-19 team for 152 and set a 35-run target to win for the home side.
Shamim Hossain (20) and Parvez Hossain Emon (six) remained unbeaten as Bangladesh reached 40-2 in 10 overs to complete the win.
Earlier, England resumed the day on 89-6, still trailing Bangladesh by 29 runs in the first innings with George Hill and Luke Hollman unbeaten on 12 and 0 respectively.
The overnight pair wiped out the deficit, adding 45 runs on the final day before Minhazur broke the stand by trapping Hill (32) leg-before with the score on 134-7.
Minhazur then dismissed Hollman (29) in the same manner as England lost their last three wickets for 18 runs.
Chasing a target of 35 runs, Bangladesh lost Tanzid Hasan Tamim for a duck in the first over and Amit Hasan for 10 but Shamim and Parvez took the home side to a comfortable victory.
Earlier, Bangladesh Under-19 had declared their first innings on 398-9 with four fifties from Shahadat Hossain, Akbar Ali, Parvez and Towhid Hridoy in response to England’s first innings total of 280.
