An excellent opening spell by Al-Amin Hossain and Imrul Kayes's steady half-century guided Bangladesh A to a resounding six-wicket win over England Lions in the first one-dayer in Chittagong yesterday.

The home side now lead the five-match series 1-0 after the visitors collapsed early in the piece after deciding to bat first at the Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, making only 139 in 39 overs before being bowled out. Bangladesh A took 33 overs to trek down the target, losing four wickets in the process. But they are still in a disadvantaged position as most of the performers will not be available for the next two matches.

Al-Amin Hossain, who impressed with a burst of wickets at the top and was later adjudged man-of-the-match, will accompany skipper Mahmudullah Riyad, Imrul Kayes, Noor Hossain Munna and three others back to Dhaka as their Premier League clubs wants them back.

To return to the game, Jason Roy was the first to go, edging Alauddin Babu at the end of an eventful first over. Joe Root, skipper James Taylor and James Vince all became Al-Amin's victims as the paceman found his groove after the seventh over. England Lions were 38 for four before Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler added 46 for the fifth wicket.

Buttler hung around till almost the end of the innings before becoming the ninth batsman to be dismissed in the 37th over. He made 45 off 81 balls with the help of three boundaries and a six, while Bairstow scored 22.

Munna quickly hastened Lions' end with three wickets while Sohrawardi Shuvo picked up two wickets in addition to Al-Amin's 3-18.

Imrul then provided Bangladesh A with the platform, hammering six boundaries in his 83-ball 53. In the process, he added 47 for the first wicket with Rony Talukdar, 44 for the second with Jahurul Islam before falling to Nathan Buck just when victory was in sight.

Riyad was unbeaten on 38 off 42 balls with six boundaries, but both batsmen will be unavailable alongside Jahurul Islam, Alauddin Babu, Tasamul Haque and the two bowling heroes (Munna and Al-Amin).

All this chopping and changing didn't however bother A team coach Stuart Barnes, who put a positive spin to the whole matter.

"In an ideal world, a group of cricketers would stay together so that it performs better. But I'm not frustrated as another group of players will get the chance to play against the second best cricketers of England," said Barnes after the match.

"It also gives me and [Tigers' coach] Stuart Law the chance to look at this group," he added.

Barnes, a former Gloucestershire fast bowler, was impressed by Al-Amin. "He has stepped up to the plate. He has some pace but most importantly, he bowled straight and the wicket here is where you bowl straight," he said.

SCORES IN BRIEF

ENGLAND LIONS: 139 all out in 39 overs (Buttler 45, Bairstow 22, Brothwick 17; Al-Amin 3-18, Noor 3-32, Shuvo 2-27).

BANGLADESH A: 141-4 in 33 overs (Imrul 53, Riyad 38 not out, Rony 23; Buck 2-0, Briggs 2-45).

Result: Bangladesh A won by six wickets, lead five-match series 1-0.

Man-of-the-match: Al-Amin Hossain.
