ESPNcricinfo staff

India Under-19 276 for 6 (Zol 128, Herwadkar 55, Watson 2-32) beat New Zealand Under-19 111 (McClure 41, Yadav 3-22, Milind 2-16) by 165 runs

India continued their winning streak in the Under-19 Tri-nation tournament with a crushing 165-run win against New Zealand in Darwin. A hundred from captain Vijay Zol charged India to 276 after they were put in to bat. Zol was involved in two defining partnerships - 105 for the second wicket with Akhil Herwadkar and 94 for the fifth wicket with Sarfaraz Khan.

New Zealand were never allowed to take control of their chase by India's pace bowlers. They were reduced to 35 for 6, of which two wickets each were taken by Chama Milind and Kuldeep Yadav. Ken McClure and Kyle Jamieson were the only batsmen to provide some resistance with a 51-run stand for the seventh wicket, but they were eventually bundled for 111 when McClure fell for 41 at the end of the 42nd over. Abhimanyu Lamba also chipped in with two wickets.

    Excellent work for the u19 KIDS...Zol is showing his class for sure...but with some time Samson will do well as he has proved in domestic

    Looks food! Kids need to prove their skills in domestic grinder for taking a forward leap!! Is Sanju Samson loosing way or temporary loss of form???

    Kuldeep Yadav looks a promising bowler. Working with Shaun Pollock at the Mumbai Indians camp must have helped him.

    The no of 4's hit by Zol shows his class. Zol continues to blossom since U19 wc. Disappointed to see Sampson not doing well at all.Some good signs for left arm pace bowlers, surprised to see lack of spinners. Keep it up guys not just flat track bullies.
