DHAKA, Bangladesh, CMC- A 15-member West Indies U-19 cricket team has arrived in Dhaka to play against Bangladesh in a seven-game Youth One Day International series starting on Friday.
The team, led by captain Ramaal Lewis, is hoping to reverse their fortunes after losing a similar series between the two teams in October in Guyana 4-3.
U-19 skipper Mehidy Hassan Miraz says Bangladesh is ready to carry on from where they left off in October.
“We had a very good tour, winning the series. I believe the good memories will give our confidence a boost and we’re look forward to the home series that starts in few days,” Miraz told the media.
“The six-day training camp that the 15-member Bangladesh squad have undergone will help the home side, thought Miraz”.
The seven-match series will begin with the first ODI at Chittagong’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium on December 6 and climax with matches at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on December 19 and 20.
West Indies Under -19s lost their final practise match to Sagicor West Indies High Performance Centre (HPC) by three runs at 3Ws Oval on Friday.
West Indies Under-19s and Bangladesh are using the series as part of preparations for the ICC Youth World Cup in United Arab Emirates in February 2014.
