Young Tigers whitewash touring England in 3-match Youth ODI Series

Dhaka- Bangladesh U-19 cricket team beat touring English youth team by 63 runs in the third and final Youth ODI at Sheikh Kamal International Stadium in Cox’s Bazar on Saturday.
An all-round performance by Shamim Hossain guided the hosts to victory in the match. The century by BG Charlesworth (115) was not enough to save the visitors from being whitewashed.
The young tigers had secured the three-match series 2-0 on Thursday with a game to spare after beating England U-19 side by five wickets in the second match. Bangladesh had made a good start to the series defeating the English side by five wickets in the first ODI on Tuesday.
It was the second successive series victory for the young tigers who had won the one-off T20 series beating visiting English Youth team by seven wickets last Sunday.
The English team will now travel to Chattogram on Monday (February 4) to play a two-match four-day Youth Tests series from February 7-10 and February 15-18 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. The visitors will leave for home on February 19.
