U-19s having batting practice |
Bangladesh Under-19 cricketers opted for some batting practice ahead of their next week's second Test as they decided not to enforce the England Development of Excellence side to follow on on the third and final day of their warm-up match at Lincolnshire yesterday.
Instead, the tourists batted for the second time after bowling out the local side for 233 at the Sleaford Cricket Club. They were replying to Bangladesh's massive first innings total of 466 for 9 declared.
And by lunch, the Bangladeshi youths reached 32 for 1, a lead of 265 runs.
The visitors will play a two-day match against the same opponents from August 7 before their second four-day Test against England Under-19s from August 10.
