Bangladesh Under-19s Innings
Bangladesh were starting off steadily after scoring 13 runs from the first four overs, but it was Zia-Ul-Haq from Pakistan who struck first taking the wicket of Shahriar Sumon, who departed only after scoring 1 run. Soon after, the new man in, Shanto was bowled after scoring 16 runs. From here on, Bangladesh had a very wayward innings. Opener, Islam, was just watching his partners on the other end show promise and then collapse. Islam scored an important 46 and the only other person with an innings worth mentioning was wicket keeper Jashimuddin with his half-century. Apart from these two, Bangladesh were strangled for a mere 192 from 44.1 overs.

1-13 Shahriar Sumon, 4.2 overs
2-50 Nazmul Hossain Shanto, 15.5 overs

Pakistan Under-19s Innings
With a small target to chase, Pakistan took their time about reaching this total. They had only scored 19 runs off the first 10 overs. But they quickly picked up the pace with Captain Sami Aslam and Imran Butt accelerating the innings to help them reach 80/0 after 25 overs. However, only three overs later, Imran Butt departed after scoring 34 runs. It was then Imam-Ul-Haq who provided the aggressive intent while the Captain made sure strike was rotating. However, Imam-Ul-Haq departed after a quick-fire 13. It was then the Captain and Hussain Talat, who wrapped up the show for Pakistan.

Fall Of Wickets
1-107 Imran Butt, 28.2 overs
2-138 Imam-ul-Haq, 34.3 overs

An aggressive Pakistani bowling attack, powered by Zia-Ul-Haq's 3 wickets and incredibly economical spell, helped restrict Bangladesh U-19's for a very gettable total. The Pakistani Captain, Sami Aslam led from the front scoring an impressive 120 to help Pakistan finish with a win.

As comprehensive as it gets and good to see the youngsters adapting to the conditions after their near disaster in the abandoned game against the same opponents.
Well at least our youths can win in EEngland :)
The young boys are in good form.Brilliant team effort again.Good to see the skipper leading from the front.
Awesome performance from our Young SIde., Both Batting and Bowling... Such a nice too see them perform in England conditions.
Our Senior side should learn from them on how to construct an innings and build momentum upon that...
Zafar, Zia And Aftab had been awesome with the Ball.. And Sami Aslam Leading from the front with his unbeaten century
Well, I wasn't happy with the selection, but I'm glad they're doing well.
