With two abandoned games, the South Africa U19 Team and India U19 Team have got one extra game which will be played on Tuesday, January 3 at the Tuks Cricket Oval in Pretoria. The visitors started with a win, before both the second and third match of the series was abandoned without a ball being bowled. However, they also won their last game and took a lead of 2-0 in the series.
India U19, led by Shafali Verna, registered a four-wicket win on Monday as well. Batting first, South Africa could only manage 86 for nine in their allotted overs. Three of their batters reached the double digits, but none of them could contribute much. Najla CMC was the pick of the bowlers for the visitors with figures of 3-0-4-3. Falak Naz also picked up two scalps for 11 runs.
On the other hand, the Indian U19 Team were dominating in their run-chase as they reached the target with 30 balls to spare. Soumya Tiwari and captain Shafali Verma added more than 50 runs for the opening wicket as well. Shafali scored 29 runs off 27 balls with two fours and as many sixes. Richa Ghosh also scored a 12-ball 15 as India went past the finish line in 15 overs as well. Seshnie Naidu finished with the figures of 4-0-14-3 for the hosts, but others couldn’t contribute much and eventually lost as well.
