Bangladesh Under-19 cricket team is set to face Scotland on Tuesday in their second game of the ongoing ICC Under-19 World Cup in South Africa.

In the rain-interrupted first match, Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe by nine wickets.

While Bangladesh registered their first win in the first match, Scotland suffered a seven-wicket defeat against Pakistan.

In the first game, Bangladesh needed to score 130 runs in 22 overs after the rain halted the game. Zimbabwe batted first after losing the toss and scored 137 for six in 28.1 overs.

Bangladesh chased down the target in 11.2 overs with an aggressive batting from Tanzid Hasan (32 off 10 balls with 3 fours and 3 sixes), Parvez Hossain Emon (58* off 33 balls with 5 fours and 3 sixes) and Mahmudul Hasan Joy (38* off 26 with 5 fours).

After Scotland, Bangladesh will take on Pakistan in their last Group C game on January 24 at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom.
