Afghanistan U-19 cricket team ended their tour of Bangladesh on a winning note, beating the junior Tigers by three wickets in the lone four-day game in Sylhet Saturday.

Chasing 110 for victory, the Afghans suffered some anxious moments after the fall of wickets at regular intervals but eventually reached their destination thanks to opener Bilal Sayedi's 54.

Ripon Mondol, Mushfik Hasan and Bangladesh U-19 captain Aich Mollah all bagged two wickets apiece but lower-order batter Kamran Hotak struck an unbeaten 20 in the end to take the Afghans to victory.

Bangladesh U-19 were the architects of their own downfall as they began the fourth and final day on 170/4 with a 51-run lead, but lost their remaining six wickets for just 58 runs.

Opener Prantik Nawrose Nabil top-scored for the home side in the second innings with 76, while Aich chipped in with 40.

Izharulhaq Naveed took four wickets for Afghanistan U-19, while Bilal Sami picked up three.

The Afghans had earlier took a strong hold of the game having taken a 119-run first-innings lead after replying to the junior Tigers' 162 with 281.

Bangladesh U-19 had begun the tour with a 3-2 series victory in the five youth ODIs.
