Highlights India U19 vs South Africa U19: Yash Dhull, Vicky help India start with win in U19 WC 2022. India 232 (Dhull 82, Tambe 35, Boast 3-40) beat South Africa 187 (Brevis 65, Ostwal 5-28, Bawa 4-47) by 45 runs.
Guayana: Vicky Ostwal (10-0-28-5) and Rajangad Bawa (6.4-0-47-4) mesmerized South Africa as runners-up India motored to a 45-run verdict with 26 balls to spare in the ICC World Cup Under-19 at Providence Stadium here today.
India’s captain Yash Dhull impressed with his batting and catching to help his side seal a 45-run win over South Africa. However, the game was closer than what the scorecard would suggest, with South Africa capitulating in the final third of the chase. And making most of their collapse was left-arm spinner Vicky Ostwal, who took three lower-order wickets to finish with 5 for 28.
South Africa went on to lose their next five wickets for only 20 runs, a collapse triggered by Indian bowlers. Ostwal’s five-wicket haul came at an economy of 2.80.
In the end, though, the 19 deliveries that India did not face did not end up hurting them. Their superior run rate on a two-paced and spinning surface proved too much for South Africa. From the year 2020 till now, both the teams have met twice and India has won both those matches.
