Saif Hassan struck his second Youth ODI century before offspinner Sanjit Saha picked up his second five-wicket haul, to help Bangladesh U-19 to a 16-run win against West Indies U-19s in Chittagong. The victory also gave Bangladesh a 3-0 series win.

Bangladesh managed to put up 235 for 7 on the back of Saif’s contribution. He hammered eleven fours and three sixes in his 147-ball 107, and batted out the entire 50 overs. He added 87 runs for the fifth wicket with Shafiul Hayet, who struck 61 off 69 balls, with nine boundaries.

In reply, West Indies got off to a good start as the openers – Tevin Imlach (38) and Gidron Pope (57) – compiled 82 in just 78 balls. However, the bowlers made regular breakthroughs after the dismissal of Pope, who smashed 11 fours and a six. Saha cut through the middle order with figures of 10-3-21-5 as West Indies were bowled out for 219 off the penultimate delivery.
