Saudi Arabia won the ACC Under 19 Challenge Cup, using their powerful batting, fast bowling and spin bowling, and excellent fielding to defeat Bhutan 247 to 188 at the Prem Center in Chiang Mai, Saturday, January 19.
Saudi Arabia won the toss and elected to bat first. Bhutan bowlers and fielders started out well, holding Saudi to a run rate that would have produced a score of around 200, but in the later overs Saudi really cracked on. Hussain Anwar came in as the fifth batsman and produced a match winning high score of 62 runs, including 2 sixes and 4 fours. The subsequent batsmen produced another 75 runs including one six and 5 fours to seal the fate of Bhutan.
The Saudi side showed good depth in batting throughout the tournament and in this match they made the most of it. For the Bhutan bowlers, fast bowler Dilip Kumar Subba had another fine match, taking 3 wickets with one maiden over, and Thinley Jamtsho took another 3, but their side just could not control the Saudi batsmen.
In the Bhutan innings, the Bhutan scoring pace matched that of the early Saudi innings, however, team captain Jigme Singye was caught behind for only 12 runs and this was a big blow to the Bhutan hopes, as Jigme is frequently the top scorer for the team. The rest of the side did their best, with the fine team spirit that they have so often demonstrated, but they were unable to match the Saudis performance in the later overs.
The Saudi side’s all-round fielding yielded seven catches and one run out. After the seventh wicket, there was no one left who could handle the Saudi bowling and Bhutan were all out in only 3 more overs, finishing with 188 from 45 overs.
Saudi team captain Muhammad Imran and Ejaz Sagheer each took 3 wickets to lead the Saudi bowlers. Saudi high scorer Hussain Anwar was named the Man of the Match.
The 2008 ACC Under 19 Challenge Cup was held at both the Prem Center and the Gymkhana cricket grounds in Chiang Mai over the period January 10-19 and featured teams from Saudi Arabia, Bhutan, China and the Maldives.

Bhutan’s Thinley Jamtsho is run-out and Saudi Arabia are almost home.
