West Indies Under-19 delivered another weak batting effort to go down by 171 runs in their second One Day warm-up game against Bangladesh Under-19 yesterday.

In a worrying sign ahead of their campaign in the ICC Youth World Cup next week, the Caribbean side could only muster 128 all out off 49.3 overs in pursuit of 300 for victory at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Bangladesh.

Keemo Paul, batting at number seven, top-scored with 25, while opener Gideon Pope hit 23, but were the only two batsmen to pass 20.

On Monday the Windies lost the opening game by eight wickets in another poor showing with the bat.

The final warm-up game will be played tomorrow before West Indies Under-19 clash with Scotland in their opening game of the Youth World Cup on January 22nd.
