Scotland Under-19s made a strong start with a huge win over the Japan Under-19s on Monday. The Scottish team were bowled out for 325 in 47.2 overs before they ran through the Japan team. The Scotland bowlers needed 29.5 overs to dismiss the Japan side for only 69. They will face West Indies Under-19s in the second warm-up match. The West Indies side got away with a 3-wicket win against the Canada team. A 123-run 6th wicket partnership came to the rescue of the West Indies U19s in the 272-run chase.
The Irene Villagers cricket club is likely to be under the sun on Wednesday and won’t be causing any delay to the game.
The Irene Villagers Cricket Club hosted two warm-up matches which recorded scores of 255 and 215 by batting first sides. We might see a slow wicket at this venue for Wednesday’s match. A bit of help for the pacers can be seen if there is any moisture like during the game between India and Afghanistan.
Average first innings score: 235 (Warm-up matches in 2020)
