NZ spoil Youth Tigers unbeaten record

SPORTS REPORTER, Dhaka

Visiting Bangladesh Under-19 Cricket Team tasted their first defeat in New Zealand tour as they were thrashed by hosts Kiwis four wickets in the high-scoring fourth youth ODI of the five-match series at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln yesterday.

The youth Tigers meanwhile confirmed the series after winning the initial three matches on the trot.

The youth Blackcaps captain JM Tashkoff invited its Tigers counterparts to bat first on Lincoln batting deck after winning the toss.

Tigers’ openers made a good start as they put on 71 for the opening stand before Tanzid Hasan's dismissal. Tanzid struck 51 off 44 before being bowled by the Kiwis captain.

The visitors lost two wickets in quick succession after breaking the opening pair. Mahmudul Hasan Joy, who slammed hundred in the third match, fell for 13 and Shahadat Hossain chipped in with 12 while Bangladesh youth were on 122 for three.

Opener Parvez Hasan Emon, who was playing in merry spin, turned second wicket of the Kiwis captain but he smacked half century after Tanzid. Emon clouted 55.

Together with Tawhid Hridoy, captain Akbar Ali took the rudder and put together an invaluable 104 for the fifth-wicket stand that drifted the team towards a fighting total.

Akbar clubbed 66 off 44 while the youth Tigers were 256. But Akbar along with Shamim Hossain Patwary walked back to the pavilion in two successive deliveries. Even Tawhid followed the suits making the highest innings when they had remained seven balls of the innings. Tawhid thumped 73.

Riding on Avishek Das late fire of 13 from six balls that helped them put on 295 on the board.

The Kiwis had no option to triumph the match to avert the whitewash. They showed their character and grits to chase the stiff target of 296. Even if the hosts suffered the blow in the space of nine runs, they did not lose their hearts.

But they pulled together 122 for the third wicket before OJ White holed out for 45. But Fergus Lellman brought up his half-century. He clobbered 76.

In the gap of two overs, Bangladesh bounced back in the match when Abdullah Galib struck with double strike. But kiwis captain JM Tashkoff’s adamant batting ensured their maiden victory with five balls to spare. Tashkoff remained stranded on 66.

Asadullah Galib was the most successful bowler among the visitors, claiming three wickets. Left-arm first bowler Shoriful Islam and Avishek Das claimed one wicket each.

The fifth and last youth ODI will be played at the same venue on October 13.
