Zim U-19 start with loss
Sports Reporter- The Daily Star

Zimbabwe Under-19 team started their Bangladesh tour with a loss as they conceded a 33-run defeat to BCB XI at the Khulna Divisional Stadium yesterday.

Batting first, BCB XI put on a challenging total 254 losing 8 wickets in their allotted fifty overs. The mainstay of the batting came from opener Anamul Haque (60) and middle-order batsman Mominul Haque (45).

Zimbabwe under-19 team had a few pretty good knocks in their innings as well, including Dean Mazhawidza (65) and Gary Chiri Muuta (39), but as many as five run-outs caused thwarted their chase and saw them skittle out in 48.4 overs with 221 runs on the board, handing the hosts a 33-run victory.
Armchair selectors name their XI and conduct heated selection meetings on internet. Blood young players, some experts cry. Pick the best players, regardless of age, insist others.
