The Bangladesh under-19 team bounced back from their stunning defeat to Malaysia in the previous match when they outclassed the hosts by eight wickets in Kuala Lumpur on Monday.
Bangladesh had restricted Malaysia to 108-8 in 35.2 overs before rain intervened in the game. Rubel took highest four wickets while Subhashish claimed three wickets.
Bangladesh were given a revised target of 102 in 35 overs, but they needed only 15 overs to achieve it. Mithun was unbeaten on 41.
With the win Bangladesh took a 2-1 lead in the series. They had won the first match by 10 wickets before Malaysia levelled the series with a three-wicket win in the second.
The visitors are scheduled to play a Tewenty20 match against Malaysia national side on Tuesday
