Bangladesh U-19 shrugged off their previous dismal performance to bounce with an overwhelming 262 run win over hosts Malaysia in the Youth Asia Cup match held on Monday at Royal Selangor Club, Kuala Lumpur.
Junior Tigers will be facing the tournament favourites India in their next match and this performance and result might work as an inspiration.
Malaysia skipper won the toss to utter surprise of everyone he opted to bowl first and he had to pay back heavily as Bangladesh colts piled up a massive 335 for six in the stipulated 50 overs.
Though, initially Malaysian camp might have been happy as they made early inroad to snap up both the openers Pinak Ghosh and Naim Sheikh on 12 and 13 respectively.
Skipper Saif Hasan and two down Towhid Ridoy set down to repair the damages enormous 188 third wicket stand. Saif contributed with an aggressive 90 while Ridooy was in sublime touch as he blasted his way with a blistering innings 120 runs.
Ridoy's classic knock came off 120 balls studded with seven fours and four sixes. Later Afif Hossain's 21 and Aminul Islam Biplob's 39 helped Bangladesh cruised into 300 zone.
Muhammad Hafiz was the leading wicket taker for Malaysia with four wickets for 78 runs. The mammoth target saw too much pressure for inexperienced Malaysians as they were bundled out for a paltry 73 runs with captain Virandeep Singh stand among the ruins with defying 46 off 130 balls. Non other batsmen could reach double figure mark.
Shakahawat Hossain was the most successful Bangladesh bowler with three wickets for 18 runs in his ten overs. Afif Hossain chipped in with two for 19 in his ten overs while Roni Hossain and Saif Hasan also got their names among wicket takers with wicket apiece.
Bangladesh earlier were lucky to scrape home as they struggled to beat Nepal by two wickets as per Duckworth Lewis method. Nepal were restricted on 167 for six in 40 overs but later due to afternoon rain, Bangladesh were set a revised target of 181 in 40 overs which they scamper home with just one ball to spare.
Bangladesh will be inspired with the fact that India lost their match against Nepal as they failed to attain the target of 186 being all out for 166.
