The win has handed the visitors a 3-0 lead in the 7-match Youth ODI series leaving South Africa Under-19s to win the remaining all four matches to win the series. The home team’s top order finally came to the party as opener Ruan Terblanche top-scored with 110.

No.3 batsman Luke Beaufort scored 50 as the hosts posted 276/10 before getting bowled out in the last over. Opener Haider Ali scored 116 from 111 balls to make the chase one-sided. The remaining batsmen chipped with the 20s and 30s while Fahad Munir scored a 43-ball 50. The target was chased down by Pakistan Under-19s in only 42.1 overs for the loss of four wickets.

Power Picks:

The South African U19 skipper Bryce Parsons has been quite good with the ball in the first two matches picking up two wickets apiece. He even scored an unbeaten 57 in the first game while his team suffered a narrow defeat. The previous two games were hard for the all-rounder with the bat as he scored only 10 and 0. Having gone wicketless in the previous fixture, the 18-year-old will hope to bounce back strongly.

Expert Advice:

Probable Winners:

Pakistan U19 are expected to continue their winning streak and clinch the series with three games to go.
