Saturday, December 15, 2007

The visiting Sri Lankan Under-19 team levelled the five-match limited-overs series 1-1 when they defeated their local counterparts at the Shaheed Chandu Stadium in Bogra on Friday.
Batting first, the visitors were all out for 165 in 48.5 overs with Rubel Hossain and Mahmudual Hasan taking three wickets apiece for the Bangladesh U-19s, who later were dismissed for 151.
Marshal Ayub fought alone with the Lankan bowlers with a brisk 90, but the other batsmen failed to give him adequate support. Sri Lanka’s Fernando and Pathirana each bagged four wickets giving away 20 and 25 runs respectively. The third match of the series will be held today at the same venue.
