5.3 fuller ball outside the off stump. de Kock chases it and gets the outside edge. Foakes moves across to his left and takes the catch. That's quite a start as England have removed one of the batsman of the tournament 15/1
    18.3 another slower ball does the trick. A 110.9 kmph ball does the trick. Bowes looks to flick it and gets a leading edge back to the bowler. Bowes was looking good and that's a major blow 82/3
    17.3 the captain breaks the partnership! With a slower ball! Fuller ball on the off stump and looks to defend it. He is well into stroke as he is foxed and the off stump goes for a walk 80/2
    38.2 and what would you blame this on? Mind freeze? Foolishness? Whatever you call it, the shot he tried was not worthy of a batsman who scored a half-century. he moves across the off stump and presents the face of the bat and just watches the ball hit the middle stump 178/4
    49.2 fuller ball on the leg stump. Coetzee winds up and lofts it straight into the hands of the fielder at deep midwicket. A good knock by him 241/8
    44.2 Pillay is gone. He is looking to paddle a fuller delivery and gets an edge that bobs up to the keeper. Foakes does no mistakes this time 216/5
    45.5 fuller ball outside the off stump. Savage is late in getting the bat to the ball and ends up hitting it straight to the cover fielder 222/6
    46 and that's a brilliant piece of fielding by Topley. A yorker that he digs out back to the bowler. Topley fields, and lets go of an underarm throw that finds the batsman short at the keeper's end 222/6
    49.4 wide down the leg side. Dry wants to get to the other end, but can't beat Foakes' throw and is run out by at least three yards 243/9
    50 South Africa are all-out off the final ball as Moore looks to pull and gets a top edge to midwicket where Craig Overton takes the catch 244/10

    2.1 short ball outside the off stump. Drummond is fixed on the backfoot and looks to drive. He gets an inside edge that hits the back of the pad and hits the stumps. Williams favourite player must be Afridi, going by the way he is celebrating the wicket 2/1
    st †de Kock b Subrayen
    27.3 Foakes is gone! Short and wide outside the off stump. Foakes waits for it and looks to cut it off the keeper's gloves. All that he manages is a faint edge back to the keeper 102/2
    29.2 another wicket of a wide delivery for Subrayen. Jamie Overton looks to smash it over cow-corner, but ends up getting a faint outside edge picked up by the Keeper 112/3
    30.2 and that's another wicket. Craig follows Jamie with an ill-advised piece of running. He steers it to third-man and wants a non-existent couple. And he is out by at least a couple of yards as Savage's throw was right on the stumps 114/4
    30.5 slower delivery on the off stump, Kapil gets on to the back foot and looks to cut it and gets an inside edge on top of the off stump 114/5
    33.3 looks for the reverse sweep and gets a top edge to point where Cloet takes the catch 121/6
    36.5 fuller ball outside the off stump. Wood looks to drive and gets an outside edge that is snaffled up by Pillay at point. England minutes away from elimination 131/8
    40 flight, arm ball, 4th wicket. As easy as they come. The captain comes down the track and is beaten in flight. Superb spell by Subrayen 141/9
    40.3 and that's it! South Africa have won by 103 runs. Short ball outside the off stump. He looks to drive it and gets an outside edge back to the keeper 141/10

Match Notes

  • Disciplined SA overcome tough conditions

    Neatly-arranged kit bags. Clean-shaven players with neat hair. These might have little to do with winning games, but they offer an insight into what sort of a regimen South Africa's Under-19 cricketers follow

  • South Africa make semis with big win

    South Africa knocked England out of the Under-19 World Cup by overcoming some significant challenges to seal a comprehensive victory

  • SA's contrasting openers combine well

    There's a subtext to the de Kock-Bowes opening partnership. Bowes replaced de Kock as captain for the World Cup, leaving the latter to focus on his roles of key batsman and wicketkeeper

  • Topley's souvenir swing

    Reece Topley bears more than a passing resemblance to a young Steven Finn, and is making waves for England at the Under-19 World Cup

  • England plot a way past South Africa's batsmen

    It is a clash between two professional and well-drilled outfits that contains what could potentially be one of the contests of the tournament
