Young Tigers seek to seal domination

Bangladesh Under-19s will be looking to tie the bow on a series of domination when they take on their English counterparts in the second and tour-ending Youth Test at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram beginning from today.

The young Tigers won the lone T20 against England U-19 to start the tour, then swept the three-match one-day series, before a punishing eight-wicket win in the first four-dayer that ended at the same venue on February 10.

England's batsmen found it very difficult to negotiate Bangladesh's bowling in the first youth Test, as they folded for 280 in the first innings and 152 in the second. In between, the home batsmen responded with 398 for nine declared with skipper Akbar Ali and Shahadat Hossain hitting fifties.

England's capitulation in the second innings, courtesy of left-arm spinner Minhaur Rahman's six for 28, left the hosts the simple task of chasing 35 for victory, which they achieved with ease.
