Bangladesh U-19 cricket team concluded their impressive tour of New Zealand with yet another win as the junior Tigers thrashed the young Kiwis by 73 runs in the fifth and final youth ODI at Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln Sunday.

In the process, the visiting side sealed the series 4-1, their only blemish of this tour coming in the fourth and penultimate youth ODI where they lost by four wickets Wednesday.

Batting first in the fifth youth ODI, the youngsters in red and green posted a commanding 316 losing eight wickets in their stipulated 50 overs.

Openers Tanzid Hasan and Parvez Hossain Emon gave Bangladesh a solid start putting on 120 in 16 overs.

Tanzid made 71 off just 59 balls, studded with 11 fours and a couple of sixes, while Emon scored 48 as the platform was laid for a big total.

Later, middle-order batsman Shahadat Hossain and No 9 batter Avishek Das scored identical 48s, the latter remaining unbeaten, as Bangladesh eventually gave New Zealand a tough target to chase.

The Kiwis’ Fergus Lellman bagged two wickets.

In reply, the Black Caps lost wickets at regular intervals and were ultimately all out for 243 in 43.4 overs, left-arm seamer Shariful Islam causing the most damage taking five wickets conceding 43 runs in 8.4 overs, including a maiden.

Left-arm spinner Rakibul Hasan bagged two wickets while off-spinner Shamim Hossain, medium pacer Avishek Das and seamer Tanzim Hasan Sakib picked up one each.

Lellman scored a 46-ball 56 batting at No 3.

In a series dominated by the junior Tigers, it was no surprise to see their batsmen and bowlers ruling the highest run-scorers and wicket-takers’ charts.

Tanzid (280), Mahmudul Hasan Joy (258), Towhid Hridoy (198) and Akbar Ali (145) were among the top five run-scorers while Shariful (11), Mrittunjoy Chowdhury (five) and Sakib (five) were among the top five wicket-takers.

New Zealand head coach Paul Wiseman, a former cricketer, heaped praise on the opponent following the game.

“Very well drilled opposition, they played a lot of cricket at this level, they knew exactly what they are about, they had plans in place and most importantly they were able to execute it really well, really consistently right throughout the series,” said the 49-year old.

Bangladesh began their tour with a thrashing 146-run victory (Duckworth/Lewis method) against Canterbury Invitation XI in the warm-up match on September 27.

The visiting side went on to win the first, second and third youth ODIs by six wickets, six wickets and eight wickets on September 29, October 3 and 6 respectively.

All the matches, including the practice game, were held at Bert Sutcliffe Oval.


New Zealand U-19 243 in 43.4 overs (Lellman 56, Shariful 5/43) lost to Bangladesh U-19 316/8 (Tanzid 71, Avishek 48*) by 73 runs
