South Africa Under-19s 298 for 5 (Cloete 124, de Kock 66) beat England Under-19s 148 (Dry 3-17) by 150 runs
South Africa Under-19s registered a comprehensive win against England Under-19s in the fourth one-dayer of the seven-match series, winning at Arundel by 150 runs to take a 2-1 series lead after the third game was washed-out. The South Africa innings was propelled by fluent knock of 124 by No 3 batsman Gihahn Cloete. Cloete was well supported by Quinton de Kock, who made 66, and Shaylin Pillay with 42, before some hard-hitting from the lower-middle order carried the team to 298 for five. The South Africa bowlers then produced tidy, incisive spells to bowl out England for 148 in 38 overs. First-change bowler Corné Dry was the pick, claiming 3 for 17 in a five-over spell. None of the England batsmen provided much resistance, No 8 batsman Peter Burgoyne top-scoring with 28.
