All-round Musaddek floors England Under-19s

Musaddek Hossain starred with bat and ball as Bangladesh Under-19s beat their England counterparts by 38 runs in the Tri-Nation Series.

The age-group Lions lost their opening game of the mini-tournament against Pakistan and now face an uphill task following Musaddek’s exploits.

Having struck 110 not out from just 113 balls, an innings which helped the tourists to 286 for four, he claimed two wickets in an over to undermine an England chase that ultimately fell short.

After winning the toss, Bangladesh made a fine start as openers Shahriar Sumon and Sadman Islam put on 57.

It was alongside Musaddek that Sadman truly prospered, the duo sharing a stand of 162 to put Bangladesh in control.

The latter eventually fell 14 runs shy of a century but Musaddek had no such problems reaching three figures, leaving England with a mountain to climb.

Three of the hosts’ top four got in yet failed to go on, Ryan Higgins hitting 45, Haseeb Hameed 67 and Ben Duckett 56.

Those efforts left England in with a good chance of victory until Musaddek, who claimed 3-38, ousted Duckett and Jonathan Tattersall in the same over to swing the pendulum decisively in Bangladesh’s favour.
