South Africa Take 2-1 Series Lead Against West Indies Youth

PR – A showdown  of huge proportions is expected to blow off on Monday January 03, 2022 when the West  Indies Under-19s take on South Africa Under-19s, in the fourth and final Youth One Day  International, at the Arnos Vale Cricket Grounds. 

With South Africa taking a 2-1 Series lead on Thursday December 30, 2021, on a pitch  that was very difficult for batting, the regional side was expected to push the South  Africans on a very good wicket. 

It was a hard-fought one wicket victory over the West Indies Under-19s by the South  Africa Under-19s at the Cumberland Playing Field as no batsman again registered a  commanding score. 

On a pitch with uneven bounce, West Indies won the toss and decided to bat, and was  dismissed for 107 in 38.3 overs. Shaqkere Parris top-scored with 27, Teddy Bishop  made 26, and Giovonte Depeiza contributed 22. 

Bowling for South Africa, Dewald Brevis took 3 for 16 from 3.3 overs, Hardus Coetzer 3  for 25 from 9 overs, and Liam Alder 2 for 23 from 10 overs. 

In response South Africa Under-19 reached 113 for 9 in 18.3 overs, led by Ethan  Cunningham with 25, and Liam Alder not out on 24. 

Bowling for the West Indies Under-19, Onaje Amory took 4 for 04 from 4 overs, Mathew  Nandu 2 for 02 from 3 overs, and Johann Layne 2 for 26. 

The fourth and final Youth ODI is on Monday January 03, 2022 at the Arnos Vale  Cricket Grounds.
