Share post:

ALBION, Guyana – West Indies Under-19s levelled their Youth One-day International series against Bangladesh after half-centuries from Shimron Hetmyer and Fabian Allen set them up and steady bowling from their captain Ramaal Lewis formalized a 36-run victory yesterday.
Lewis followed up a valuable 13 not out in the West Indies’ total of 240 for eight with three for 35 from his allotted 10 overs to earn the Man of the Match award, as the Windies Under-19s bowled the Bangladeshis out for 204 in 46.3 overs in the penultimate match of the series at the Albion Sports Complex in Berbice.
The result allowed the home team to tie the seven-match series 3-3, after they won the first and fifth matches either side of three straight wins for the visitors. The series concludes tomorrow at Everest in Georgetown.
Hetmyer had led the way with 65 and Allen was unbeaten on 50, as West Indies Under-19s reached 240 for eight from their 50 overs, after they chose to bat.
Tristan Coleman made 36 and Taryck Gabriel added 28 while Jubair Hossain was the pick of the bowlers for Bangladesh with three for 56.
The Windies Under-19s then bowled steadily to ensure the Bangladeshis never ran away with the scoring rate, as Joyraz Sheik made 78 off 106 balls that included five fours.
Earlier, Hetmyer struck six boundaries from 97 balls and shared successive half-century stands that steadied the West Indies Under-19s after they stumbled to 23 for two.
Hetmyer put on 76 for the third wicket with Coleman and added 51 for the fourth wicket with Gabriel before he became Jubair’s first scalp.
A period of turbulence saw the Windies Under-19s stumble to 191 for eight before Lewis came to the crease and shared an unbroken 49-run ninth wicket stand with Allen, whose 38-ball innings contained two fours and three sixes, that helped the Caribbean side reach their highest total for the series.
