Bangladesh U-16 cricket team conceded the three-match youth ODI series after losing the third and final game by seven runs to their Pakistani counterparts at Khan Laboratories Research Stadium in Rawalpindi Friday.

Pakistan earlier won the first match by 99 runs before the second and penultimate game was washed out.

Rain again played spoilsport in the third match as the game was reduced to 31-overs per side.

Batting first, the visiting side were bundled out for 165 in 30.3 overs, captain Nayeem Ahmed scoring the highest 45 from 52 balls, studded with four fours.

Nayeem was ably supported by Towhidul Islam (24), Arafat Islam (22), Redwan Hossain (22) and Minhajul Hasan (21) who steered Bangladesh to a fighting total.

Pakistan’s Ali Asfand bagged three wickets while Ahmed Khan, Ismail Khan and Mohammad Shehzad picked up two wickets each.

In reply, Pakistan got off to a good start as the openers Shehzad (32) and Ali Hasan (24) put on 61.

Rizwan (34) and Ibrar (34 not out) continued the good work of the openers by adding 62 for the second wicket.

Bangladesh’s Amir Hossain and Shamsul Islam notched two wickets apiece.

The game was then halted in the 28th over when Pakistan were batting on 148 owing to inclement weather.

Pakistan were declared winner in accordance with the Duckworth-Lewis method.

The two teams earlier played out draws in the two-match three-day series.
