Facing the India Under-19s A team, the South African Under-19s were bundled out for only 94 in pursuit of a 252-run target. Earlier, the Proteas Youth succumbed to big defeats during the 2-match Test series against India Under-19s.
They will now be up against the India Under-19s B team in a do-or-die game. The might be named ‘B’ but the India Under-19s B are far from that reputation having defeated the Afghanistan Under-19s in their first match.
