Ostwal does the damage: The Providence crowd looked set to enjoy a thrilling finish with South Africa requiring 100 runs to win with seven wickets in hand and more than 15 overs remaining. But the fall of the dangerous Dewald Brevis prompted a collapse as the Proteas lost six wickets for 27 runs to put the kibosh on their run-chase chances.
It was the talented left-arm spinner Vicky Ostwal who did much of the damage, finishing with a five-for and figures of 5/28 off his ten overs.
Dhull scores stylish 82: If Ostwal of India’s star in bowling, captain Yash Dhull did star act while batting. Only a mix-up between the wickets denied India captain Yash Dhull the century that he deserved after a fine knock of 82 from 100 balls to anchor his side’s innings.
If the 19-year-old had been able to extend his stay at the crease then India looked on for a huge total. As it was he still managed to top-score in a total that proved too much for the Proteas.
The right-hander has now scored three half-centuries on the bounce, with this innings following 50s against Australia and the West Indies during the warm-up matches, and he looks well-set to dominate this tournament with the bat.
Captain Yash Dhull scores 82 as India U19 finish their innings at 232 against South Africa U19. 👍
