Bangladesh U19, having suffered a crushing defeat against India U19, find themselves in a soup against Pakistan U19. The junior Tigers have staggered to 170/8 after 48 overs, with the hundred from Ariful Islam the only saving grace amid the batting catastrophe. Islam struck five boundaries and four sixes in his valiant innings that held Bangladesh's innings together. However, despite his heroics, Bangladesh are set to end up with a paltry total that would take some defending.
