Bangladesh U-23 will face Nepal and Sri Lanka U-23 in their remaining games

Bangladesh U-23 cricket team won their second match in succession as they thrashed hapless Bhutan by 10 wickets in their South Asian Games match in Kirtipur, Nepal Friday.

Batting first, Bhutan scored at a pedestrian pace and eventually managed only 69 on the board for the loss of seven wickets in their stipulated 20 overs.

Only four Bhutan batsmen reached double digit as Bangladesh bowlers put in another disciplined performance after their convincing victory over Maldives at the same venue Wednesday.

Right-arm seamer Manik Khan bagged two wickets while left-arm paceman Mehedi Hasan Rana, left-arm spinner Tanvir Islam, leg-spinner Minhajul Abedin Afridi and medium pacer Soumya Sarkar picked up one each.

Player of the match Soumya then took up the willow and hammered an unbeaten 50 off 28 balls featuring five fours and three sixes.

Opener Mohammad Naim was also not out on 16 off 13 deliveries alongside Soumya.

The second string Bangladesh side have four points from two matches, two behind table-topper Sri Lanka U-23, who have played a game more.

Nepal are third with four points from three games, while Maldives and Bhutan and fourth and fifth respectively with zero points from three matches each.

Bangladesh U-23 will face Nepal and Sri Lanka U-23 in their remaining games.

The gold-medal match and third-place playoff will be held Monday.
