Bangladesh U-19 Will Face Irealand U-19 Today

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Bangladesh under-19 cricket team take on their Irish counterparts in their second ICC Under-19 World Cup group D game at the Bayueams Oval in Kuala Lumpur today.

The young Tigers hammered Bermuda by 178 runs in their opening game on Monday. On the other hand, Ireland suffered a 10-wicket landslide to England on the opening day of the competition.

Bangladesh, who were helped by three half-centuries from Ashraful Islam, Nasir Hossain and Ashiqul Islam against Bermuda, would look to shut out Ireland in order to gain momentum for their crucial match-up against England on February 22.

Irish opener Christopher Dougherty struck 34 in the loss to England but he would be the only one to threaten the young Tigers.
