Bangladesh U-19 taste seven-wicket loss against England U-19
Bangladesh concluded their Group C campaign in the U-19 World Cup Cricket with a seven-wicket loss against England in Christchurch Thursday. England captain Harry Brook scored an unbeaten century as his side reached their target of 176 with a little over 20 overs remaining. Brook smashed a 84-ball 102, composed with 13 fours and three sixes, while Euan Woods was not out at the other end with 48 off 57 deliveries. Together, the unbroken fourth wicket partnership of Brook and Woods added 128 as Bangladesh ended their group stage mission with four points from three matches. Earlier, Bangladesh were dismissed for 175 in 49.2 overs, No 5 batsman Afif Hossain top-scoring with an 85-ball 63, featuring eight fours. Afif and No 6 batsman Aminul Islam Biplob (31) put on 94 runs for the fifth wicket after Bangladesh were in early trouble, losing their fourth wicket with only 27 runs on the board. Ethan Bamber and Woods bagged three wickets each for England. The youngsters in red and green will now have to wait for the England v Canada game Saturday in order to learn their fate in the 12th edition of the age-level competition. Anything other than a Canada win will take Bangladesh to the quarter-final, where they are likely to face tournament favourite India next Friday. BRIEF SCORE England U-19 177/3 in 29.3 overs (Brook 102*, Woods 48*) beat Bangladesh U-19 175 in 49.2 overs (Afif 63, Aminul 31) by seven wickets
