Scotland suffered their second 7-wicket defeat of the U19 Cricket World Cup in Potchefstroom, this time at the hands of the U19 Bangladeshi outfit.
Opting to bat first after winning the toss, Angus Guy’s men could only muster 89 runs at Witrand Oval with Uzzair Shah top-scoring with 28.
Rakibul Hasan (4/20) took an impressive hat-trick for Bangladesh to dismiss Kess Sajjad, Lyle Robertson and Charlie Peet in the middle overs before Jamie Cairns provided lower-order resistance at no.10 with 17 runs off 22 deliveries.
Just like the game against Pakistan, Scotland made early inroads with Sean Fischer-Keogh – absent from the last game – producing a brilliant new-ball spell to take three wickets in three overs, including a wicket with his first ball of the match, to leave Bangladesh 3/35 early on.
Despite the early blunder, the Bangladesh team composed themselves to chase down the target of 90 runs in the 17th over to secure the victory.
