BD U-19s tear through Eng

An unbeaten 85-ball 66 from Towhid Hridoy helped Bangladesh Under-19s register a commanding six-wicket victory against England Under-19s during an encounter in a tri-nation series -- featuring Under-19 teams from Bangladesh, England and India -- at the County Ground, New Road in Worcester yesterday.

After electing to bat, England suffered a batting collapse that saw the hosts reeling on six for 87 in the 27th over. A 111-run seventh-wicket stand between Lewis Goldsworthy and Kasey Aldridge helped England avert humiliation and post a modest 200 for seven. For Bangladesh, Tanzim Hasan was the pick of the bowlers, returning impressive figures of four for 49. 

After the exchange, Bangladesh had lost three wickets for 72 runs by the 16th over, however, a 114-run fourth-wicket stand between Towhid and Shahadat Hossain helped the young Tigers easily reach victory with 71 balls to spare.
