England Under-19s 198 (Foakes 48, Ngoepe 2-34) v South Africa Under-19s 86 for 1 in 13 overs (de Kock 48) match abandoned
South Africa Under-19s looked on course to take a 2-1 lead against England Under-19s in the seven-match youth ODI series, before rain forced a no-result at the Arundel Castle Cricket Club Ground.
Choosing to bowl, South Africa restricted the hosts to 198. While several of the England line-up got starts, none were able to build a big innings, the top-score being wicket-keeper Ben Foakes 48. The South Africa bowlers shared the wickets around, left-arm spinner Lesiba Ngoepe producing the best figures - 2 for 34 in a tight spell. South Africa's openers got the chase off to a spirited start, adding 81 in 71 balls before Sam Wood struck with his first over. The rain came down soon after, with South Africa needing 113 off 37 overs with nine wickets in hand.
The fourth game is scheduled for Saturday at the same venue.
