England were beaten by Sri Lanka in their quarter-final meeting at the Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh. Callum Taylor top scored with 42 as England were dismissed for 184, four balls shy of completing their 50 overs. England had lost wickets steadily throughout their innings but Sri Lanka breezed to victory with almost 15 overs of their allotted 50 to spare. Avishka Fernando top scored with a brisk 95 off 96 balls as Sri Lanka set up a semi-final against India. England had won the toss and opted to bat, a decision their captain Brad Taylor defended quite strongly at the presentation. Not that the first few overs went England’s way either. Opener Dan Lawrence dragged one onto his stumps for 9, his partner Max Holden was caught at slip for 8 and the tournament’s top scorer Jack Burnham could only manage 11 at No. 3. Callum Taylor tried to resurrect the innings with 42 off 57 balls, but his wicket triggered a middle-order collapse. What would rankle England more was the ball that got Taylor lbw had pitched outside leg stump while he was playing a shot. England fell from 120 for 4 in the 35th over to 136 for 7 in the 40th as Sri Lanka strangled the innings with spin. Legbreak bowler Wanidu Hasaranga picked up 3 for 34. Out walked the Sri Lanka openers and cashed in 51 runs in eight overs before the lunch break. Avishka battered left-arm seamer Sam Curran for four successive fours in the third over and never looked back. He got to his 50 off 44 balls and looked set for a hundred until he chose to swipe at a bouncer he had originally seemed to duck under and was caught behind for 95. It was only a minor roadblock for Sri Lanka though, who coasted to victory with six wickets and 86 balls to spare.

Namibia were skittled out for a mere 152 in 39 overs, thanks to spinners Mayank Dagar (3-25), Anmolpreet Singh (3-27) and Washington Sundar (2-27). Skipper Zane Green then made 27 to lift Namibia to 80 for one, but thereafter the rest of the batsmen fell in clusters.
