India vs South Africa U-19 World Cup Live Score: Yash Dhull captains the Indian side as they begin their ICC Men’s Under-19 World Cup 2022 campaign in Guyana with a Group B clash against South Africa. Dhull will hope to join an illustrious list of names – including Mohammad Kaif, Virat Kohli and Prithvi Shaw – to have led India to victory in this competition. The Indians head into the U-19 WC with a victory in the under-19 Asia Cup. India have only once failed to make it past the group stage at an U-19 and enter as the favourites to go all the way.
India Squad: Yash Dhull (c), Harnoor Singh, Angkrish Raghuvanshi, SK Rasheed (vc), Nishant Sindhu, Siddarth Yadav, Aneeshwar Gautam, Dinesh Bana, Aaradhya Yadav, Raj Angad Bawa, Manav Parakh, Kaushal Tambe, RS Hangargekar, Vasu Vats, Vicky Ostwal, Ravikumar, Garv Sangwan.
South Africa Squad: George van Heerden (c), Liam Alder, Matthew Boast, Dewald Brevis, Michael Copeland, Ethan Cunningham, Valentine Kitime, Kwena Maphaka, Gerhard Maree, Aphiwe Mnyanda, Andile Simelane, Jade Smith, Kaden Solomons, Joshua Stephenson, Asakhe Tshaka.
India U19 are all out on 232 in 46.5 overs. A competitive total if not par but they need to bowl very well to defend this.
Just as we were saying Kaushal Tambe was playing well, he is gone for 35. RS Hangargekar is gone off the next ball and suddenly India are nine down. Matthew Boast picks up 3 wickets in his spell. IND: 226/9 after 46 overs
A special shoutout to the #TuksCricket duo – Dewald Brevis and right Matthew Boast – who are part of the 🇿🇦 South Africa national team squad for the 2022 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in the West Indies.#U19CWC#Elevate2Greatness 🌟💡 pic.twitter.com/uoBOGaAWbq
Bowled!! Bana tried to make a bit of room but fails to connect. A strange dismissal as the ball clipped the off-stump but somehow it’s just the leg-bail that’s come off. Bana is gone for 7 and Matthew Boast picks up the wicket. IND: 221/7 after 44 overs
Kaushal Tambe moves on to 33 off 39 balls with his second boundary of the innings. Tambe made a bit of room and carves it over extra cover. IND: 214/6 after 43 overs
Yash Dhull played a captain’s knock of 82 out of India’s total of 195/6 at the end of the 39th over. Direct hit there by Simelane. Can India score well in the last 10 overs to set a target of more than 250?
Haha! Why in the world is the DJ at the #U19CWC playing Chunari Chunari? 😂
Dhull has done well in steering India towards the right total so far.
Lbw!! Can you believe that? Dewald Brevis strikes! with a shortish delivery, and Bawa is late on the pull. The left-hander was trapped in front and hit on the back leg. IND: 159/5 after 33 overs
Dhull and Bawa have added 29 runs, taking India’s total past 150. Its time for a drink’s break. India: 155/4 after 32 overs
A captain’s knock so far from Yash Dhull! IND: 133/4 after 29 overs
After the 100 came up for India, their captain has opened his arms and has played a couple of fluent strokes to the fence. The cut through point, off Mickey Copeland, is a treat to watch. IND: 115/3 after 25 overs
Nishant Sindhu gets going with a fine shot over extra cover, it was pitched short and outside off and the batter won’t miss that one. Sidhu is unbeaten on 11 off 14 and has already hit two fours. IND: 97/3 after 23 overs
Another leg before the wicket! It’s becoming quite a pattern here. He picked the wrong length to sweep and paid the price for it. Rasheed departs just when the partnership was building. IND: 84/3 after 21 overs
Poor line and length from the South African youngsters. They need to get their act together before the Indian duo of Yash Dhull and Shaik Rasheed take this game away. They have already added 50 runs off 54 deliveries! IND: 61/2 after 14 overs
Yash Dhull and Shaik Rasheed have steered India to 50/2. However, there was a moment of lapse in concentration from Shaik Rasheed as he edged one to the slips but the catch was dropped by Valintine Kitime.
The under 19 Indian cricket team’s number 3 batsman is Sheikh Rashid, and He is just been dropped in slip by VALENTINE KITIME 😂#U19CWC #SAvsIND pic.twitter.com/brSCZDwNo5
0 0 0 1 Wd5 Wd Wd Wd 4 0 = 13 from the Aphiwe Mnyanda over. Poor line from the Protea pacer. After a good spell of bowling, he has been a bit wayward this over. The keeper is having a tough time behind the wicket. IND: 38/2 after 8 overs
Shaik Rasheed takes the attack to Matthew Boast and the first one is a pull over mid-wicket and the next one is a drive past mid-on. India needed this push. IND: 25/2 after 7 overs
Aphiwe Mnyanda strikes again and once again he does the damage with the inswinger. Full and straight and Raghuvanshi mad the error of shuffling too much and he is caught plumb in front. India have lost both their openers. IND: 14/2 after 6 overs
Harnoor Singh is trapped in front by Aphiwe Mnyanda for 1 off 3 balls. Aphiwe Mnyanda bowls an in-angling length ball on the stumps. Harnoor Singh moves across to defend and is beaten on the inside edge. IND: 7/1 after 2 overs
Angkrish Raghuvanshi and Harnoor Singh are at the crease. Angkrish Raghuvanshi is on strike. Matthew Boast will open the attack. LET”S PLAY
There is a pot of gold not at the end of the rainbow but right there at the start, winking at the teenagers, even as they embark on the Under-19 World Cup campaign. The razzmatazz of the IPL is just around the corner with the auction in February, scheduled to be held a few days after the final.
