Scorecard

South Africa Under-19s stormed to a series win in the 7th ODI against England Under-19s at Canterbury. The home side entered the game needing a win to level the series but were bowled out for 204, which was chased down with four wickets and 11.3 overs to spare.

It was a tough day for the batsmen but Quinton de Kock stood out again with a rapid half-century at the top of the order. He struck 10 fours to make 78 off 68 deliveries and his contribution was enough to set-up the victory.

It was the middle order, though, that guided the visitors over the line. Malcolm Nofal made 33, Diego Rosier 22 and James Price a patient, unbeaten 19 to seal the victory.

Earlier in the day, Daniel Bell-Drummond's scrapping 54 was the main contribution to England's total. His effort was not supported by the rest of the top order though as England were reduced to 121 for 5 when Bell-Drummond departed.

Ramanpreet Singh and Kishen Velani struck a contrasting pair of 30s. Ramanpreet a stodgy 33 and Velani a more fluent 34 from 33 balls. That, though, was followed by a lower-order slump that left South Africa too easy a total to take the series.
