Scorecard

An all-round performance from Shaylin Pillay consigned Zimbabwe Under-19s to their third straight defeat in the tri-nation tournament in South Africa. South Africa Under-19s put Zimbabwe in to bat at Newlands, and skittled them for 176, with Pillay taking two wickets with his medium-pace. After an early stutter in the chase, Pillay guided the hosts to their second win of the tournament with his 91.

Zimbabwe lost a wicket in their first over but contributions from the top order got them to 105 for 3 in 23.5 overs. Fast bowler Solo Nqweni, left-arm spinner Lesiba Ngoepe and Pillay affected the collapse. They finished with seven wickets between them as Zimbabwe's innings lasted just 38.2 overs.

South Africa were given a scare by medium-pacer Kyle Bowie, whose three strikes, along with one by his new-ball partner James Bruce, reduced the hosts to 39 for 4. Pillay began the recovery in the company of Murray Coetzee, and the 138-run stand they put together was enough to take South Africa home.
