Bangladesh A win by 76 runs to complete series sweep
Bangladesh A won by 76 runs in the last match to complete a series sweep over Ireland A at Cox's Bazar today.
Having been asked to bat first, Bangladesh A put on a formidable total of 286 runs on the board courtesy of an unbeaten 101-ball 102 from right-handed batsman Yasir Ali.
Bangladesh A lost an early wicket inside the first five overs but a fourth-wicket partnership of 129 runs between Sahdman Islam (68) and centurion Yasir Ali helped the hosts put up a commendable total.
Ireland A faced early upheaval as they lost two wickets within the first ten overs. A team high 80-ball 66 from Jack Tector along with John Anderson provided some foundation to the Ireland A innings.
