Windies U-19s crumble against spin attack
GEORGETOWN—West Indies under-19s crashed to an ignominious 198-run defeat against Bangladesh under-19s in the third Youth One Day International (ODI) match in Guyana, on Friday.
The West Indies were bowled out for a humiliating 88 in just 18 of their allotted 50 overs, in response to Bangladesh’s 286 for six in 50 overs, in a day-and-night match that hardly went into the night at the Guyana national stadium. The visitors have now taken a two-one lead in the seven-match series, after West Indies won the opening match and lost the second. The West Indian batsmen were no match for the Bangladesh spin attack, plus poor shot selection saw them equalling their lowest score in under-19 cricket. In 2004, they made 88 against Pakistan.
The Bangladesh target at no point in the chase seemed achievable, as poor batting highlighted the homeside’s disappointing innings. Three top-order batsmen got into double figures, a succession of ducks and a tail-end collapse against the spin of Jubair Hossain ensured Bangladesh remained in firm control of the lopsided encounter. Shimron Hetmyer scored 17, Leroy Lug 16, and Fabian Allen 15, before three wickets fell, as Hossain snapped up a hat-trick, with the score on 87. Jofra Archie was trapped lbw, Jermaine Jones caught at backward point and Brian Charles lbw, as well as Hosain finished with three or seven from two overs, while Rahatul Ferdous grabbed three for nine.
Earlier, Sadman Islam Anik and Jasim Uddin hit half centuries to steer Bangladesh to their formidable total. Anik missed his century by just five runs and Uddin hit 68 as Bangladesh stamped their authority on the match. West Indies under-19s and Bangladesh under-19s will play each other against in the fourth match of the series on Monday at Everest Cricket Club ground. (CMC)
