Jones, Solozano & Lewis video | 7th Youth ODI vs Bangladesh Under-19s
Georgetown, Guyana – Destructive fast bowling from Jerome Jones which included a hat-trick failed to trump steady spin bowling from Nihaduzzaman and Mehedy Hasan that bowled Bangladesh Under-19s to a series-clinching, 67-run victory over West Indies Under-19s in the final Youth One-day International today here.
Jones grabbed 5-23 from six overs which included the scalps of Yasir Ali, Nihaduzzaman and Jubair Hossain from successive deliveries, bringing the Bangladeshi innings to a dramatic close on 168 in 44 overs, after the visitors chose to bat at Everest.
But the Windies Under-19s’ batting put up token resistance and they were bowled out for 101 in 33.5 overs, as they again failed to combat the Bangladesh Under-19s spinners.
Jeremy Solozano, opening the batting, was not out on 35 and was the only batsman from the home team that past 20, as Nihaduzzaman ended with the flattering figures 5-12 from 7.5 overs and Mehedy finished with 4-25 from 10 overs to earn the Man-of-the-Match and Man-of-the-Series awards.
The result meant West Indies Under-19s lost the seven-match series 3-4.
