Bangladesh U-19 team conceded a narrow one-wicket defeat against their Sri Lankan counterparts during the fourth match of the five-match youth one-day international series at Rangiri Dambulla International Cricket Stadium in Dambulla on Saturday.

The junior Tigers, who earlier lost the first three matches to suffer the series defeat, made 224-8 in their stipulated 50 overs with skipper SM Meherob and Ariful Islam making 52 and 50 runs respectively after they elected to bat first.

Raveen de Silva then scored 88 off 100 balls to guide Sri Lanka to 225-9 in 49.3 overs and gave his side a 4-0 lead in the series. For Bangladesh, Mushfik Hasan finished with 3-39.

Bangladesh will try to avoid a cleansweep when they take on the hosts in the fifth and last game on Monday at the same venue.
