Defending champions Bangladesh beat the UAE by nine wickets via the D/L method in a rain-interrupted match to reach the quarterfinals of the U-19 World Cup.

Bangladesh’s bowlers restricted the United Arab Emirates to 148 and then overhauled the target with 61 balls to spare on Saturday.

Punya Mehra then top-scored for UAE  with 43 but could not find a partner to stay with him as the final seven wickets fell for 98 runs.

Ripon Mondol took 3-31, with three other bowlers also coming away with dismissals.

Bangladesh will be hoping for a repeat of the final last time out when they face India in the quarterfinal on January 29.
