ETHAN BAMBER SETS ENGLAND UNDER 19'S UP FOR SECOND WORLD CUP VICTORY

4 months ago | Uncategorised

In a blistering display of accurate and penetrative opening bowling in Queenstown this morning, Middlesex youngster Ethan Bamber, ripped into the Bangladesh top order, picking up three wickets for just 19 runs in six devastating overs, as England Under 19's secured their second victory of this year's Under 19 World Cup campaign.

Opening the bowling with Dillon Pennington, who also picked up a wicket with the new ball, the Bangladesh youngsters were always going to struggle to recover from their early collapse, although from 27 for 4 the Tigers did rally, to post a total of 175 before being dismissed in the final over of their innings. 

Behind the stumps, Middlesex's Jack Davies continued his good form with the gloves, picking up two catches behind, one off Bamber and one off Woods, whilst leg spinner Luke Hollman, who picked up three wickets in England's opening clash with Namibia, picked up another one here, going for 36 runs in the 7.2 overs he bowled. 

In reply England lost both openers early, with Middlesex's Savin Perera falling for just 7, although their early wobble was soon overlooked as an unbeaten century from skipper Harry Brook and 48 not out from Euan Woods took England to their victory target to secure a convincing victory by seven wickets and move to the top of Group C.

England Under 19's are next in action in their final group clash of the campaign against Canada tomorrow night at 21:30GMT.
