  • Young Lions Head Coach Jon Lewis said: “As is always the case for any trip to the subcontinent we’re expecting an extremely tough trip.

    “Bangladesh are a force to reckoned with in their own conditions, as we’ve seen from when our senior side have travelled there. The subcontinent is always tricky, and we expect it to be incredibly hard.

    “However I’m very pleased with this group. We worked very hard before Christmas during our training camp in India and I’m really looking forward to seeing how the players adapt to the conditions and to what they can learn from this trip as they continue their journey.”
