West Indies Under-19s 81 for 2 (Brathwaite 28*, Alleyne 23*) trail Australia Under-19s 350 (Patterson 123, Bancroft 75, Nelson 4-58) by 269 runs with eight wickets in hand
A flurry of wickets from legspinner Donovan Nelson and seamer Derone Davis brought West Indies Under-19s back into the game after Australia Under-19s batsmen had made a strong start on the first day of their Youth Test at the ICC global Academy in Dubai. Nelson and Davis took seven wickets between them as Australia collapsed from 274 for 3 to 350 all out. By the end of the day, West Indies' batsmen had reached 81 for 2, leaving the match even.
Before the collapse, Kurtis Patterson and Cameron Bancroft had given Australia the advantage with a 146-run second-wicket partnership. Patterson went on to get 123 before he became Nelson's first scalp. Nelson went on to take three more wickets, while Davis took 3 for 61.
