Bangladesh are set to lock horns with UAE in match 21 of the ICC Under-19 World Cup at the Warner Park in St Kitts on Saturday, January 22, 2022.

Bangladesh, led by spinner Rakibul Hasan, started their campaign with a heavy seven-wicket loss against England. However, the Junior Tigers then beat Canada by eight wickets on Thursday at the Conaree Sports Club.

After being put to field first, Bangladesh bowled Canada out for 136 in 44.3 overs. Ripon Mondal and SM Mehrob picked up four wickets apiece. Thereafter, Iftakher Hossain Ifti's unbeaten 61-run knock made sure the Tigers tracked the target down with 19.5 overs to spare.

Meanwhile, the UAE, captained by Alishan Sharafu, are third in Group A with a rather dismal net run rate of -1.400. After getting their campaign underway with a 49-run win over Canada, they slumped to a humiliating 189-run loss to England on January 20.

Tom Prest's 154-run knock helped England post a mammoth score of 362-6, after which the UAE were bowled out for 173 in 38.2 overs. The upcoming game is a must-win one for both Bangladesh and UAE, as the winner will qualify for the quarter-final.
