England Under-19s finished 9th in the U19 CWC 2020 as they clinched the Plate title following a thumping win over Sri Lanka in the final on Monday. Dan Mousley’s 111-run knock was backed by the fifties from Jack Haynes (68) and Joe Evison (59) in helping England reach 279/8 in their 50 overs.
In the big chase, Sri Lanka kept losing wickets regularly only to be bowled out for 127 eventually. Ravindu Rasantha (66) was the only player from Sri Lanka to cross the 20-run mark in this game. Spinner Lewis Goldsworthy bagged a 5-wicket haul that included four LBW dismissals.
All the statistical highlights recorded during the Plate final between England and Sri Lanka:
1 – Dan Mousley (111) and Lewis Goldsworthy (5/25) recorded England’s first-ever instance of a century and a 5-wicket haul in the same U19 CWC game. This was the 2nd such instance for England in a Youth ODI as Gary Pratt scored 100 and Justin Bishop took 7/41 during the 2001 Chelmsford Youth ODI against West Indies.
5/21 – Lewis Goldsworthy took 5/21 in his seven overs; the best bowling figures in the U19 CWC history for England. Paul McMahon’s 5/25 in the 2002 edition against Nepal are the previous best bowling figures for England in the U19 CWC.
18y 210d – Dan Mousley is the 2nd youngest player to score a century in U19 CWC for England. Dan Lawrence was 18 years and 199 days old when he scored 174 against Fiji in the 2016 edition. Overall, Mousley’s 111 is 5th highest individual score for England in U19 CWC and all the top five scores came since the start of 2016.
111 – Dan Mousley scored 111 before getting stumped in the bowling of Kavindu Nadeeshan. This is the 3rd highest score in Youth ODIs which came to an end via stumping. Quinton de Kock scored 146 before being stumped in the 2012 Youth ODI against Pakistan in Paarl. New Zealand’s Rachin Ravindra made 117 before getting out stumped in the 2018 U19 CWC game against Kenya.
152 – The 152-run defeat in this game is Sri Lanka’s biggest defeat in terms of runs in U19 CWC. Their previous biggest loss was by 121 runs against Pakistan also while chasing a target of 280 during the 2014 edition. In fact, this is the 6th biggest win for England in the U19 CWC but their highest against a Test playing nation.
9-10 – England and Sri Lanka finish 9th and 10th positions respectively in this tournament. These are the worst finishes for both the teams in a U19 CWC. England’s previous worst was recorded in the 2010 edition where they finished 8th. On the other hand, Sri Lanka’s previous worst finish in a U19 CWC was 9th in the 2012 and 2018 editions where they won the plate title.
