South Africa U-19 172 for 7 (Bowes 50*) beat Zimbabwe U-19 171 (Light 59*, Ngoepe 3-38) by three wickets Scorecard

Zimbabwe Under-19's losing streak continued in the tri-series as they succumbed to a three-wicket defeat to the hosts in a low-scoring match at Somerset West. It wasn't smooth sailing for South Africa, who at one stage were 87 for 5, before an unbeaten 50 by Chad Bowes took them past the finish line.

The Zimbabweans, who chose to bat, had collapsed to 111 for 8. Campbell Light, at No.8, hit an unbeaten 59 off 61 balls with four fours and three sixes to give his side something to shout about, but the total of 171 was far from competitive. Lesiba Ngoepe, the left-arm spinner, took 3 for 38.

The South African top order didn't fare too well either, as they lost half their side with 85 still needed. Bowes and Shaylin Pillay added 56 for the sixth wicket to set them on course for the win. Bowes' unbeaten 50 came off 71 balls with five fours.
