Bangladesh Under-19s recorded a stunning win over India Under-19s in the rain-affected game in Billericay on Tuesday. India posted 221/5 in the restricted 36 overs as the game got delayed after the toss. Bangladesh got a revised target of 218 from 32 overs which they accomplished with two wickets and three balls to spare. They are now the table-toppers with seven points after five matches.
The Bangladesh Under-19s are one win away from becoming the first side to make it through to the final. Bangladesh has defeated the hosts England in both their meetings in this tournament. A defeat in the game to be played on Thursday will put England into a critical position. England will need to win their remaining three matches as they won only one out of four matches played.
The 8th game of the Tri-Nation Under-19s Tournament between England Under-19s and Bangladesh Under-19s will be played at the Toby Howe Cricket Ground in Billericay.
The match starts at 11:00 AM local time (10:00 AM GMT) (3:30 PM IST).
The Toby Howe Cricket Ground in Billericay hosted its first Youth ODI on Tuesday when Bangladesh took on India. Both the teams scored close to 7 runs an over during the rain-affected game. A 275+ total can be expected for the team batting first else the chasing side could chase it easily.

Keeper – Akbar Ali
Batters – Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Jack Haynes, Ben Charlesworth (C), Towhid Hridoy (VC)
All-Rounders – Lewis Goldsworthy, Shamim Hossain
Bowlers – Kasey Aldridge, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Hamidullah Qadri, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury

Batters – Ben Charlesworth, Jack Haynes, Parvez Hossain Emon, Towhid Hridoy
All-Rounders – Shahadat Hossain, Lewis Goldsworthy (C)
Bowlers – Kasey Aldridge, Blake Cullen, Shoriful Islam, Nick Kimber
Kasey Aldridge, Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Mrittunjoy Chowdhury are the most consistent bowlers across both the squads. However, the alternatives usually have a good game once in three instances. Other than the above three, Bangladesh’s Shoriful Islam and England’s Hamidullah Qadri can be trusted due to their experience at a higher level.
Bangladesh Under-19s are expected to win their 3rd straight game against England Under-19s.
