India Under-19 265 for 2 (Srivastava 105*, Goswami 97) beat South Africa Under-19 203 for 9 (Malan 71, Sangwan 4-45) by 62 runs
South Africa's Under-19s suffered their second straight loss in the tri-nation tournament largely because of Tanmay Srivastava's unbeaten 105 in Pretoria. Set to chase 266 by India U-19s, South Africa regularly lost wickets and eventually fell 62 runs short.
India lost their first wicket for 39 and it was Srivastava's 190-run partnership with Shreevats Goswami that anchored their innings. South Africa used eight bowlers in their attempt to break the stand and it was Wayne Parnell, replacing Kelly Smuts in the side, who eventually trapped Goswami leg before for 97.
South Africa's other changes in the squad, Clayton August and Sybrand Engelbrecht, in place of Dwaine Pretorius and Audrey Swanepoel, went wicketless.
Opener Pieter Malan made up for his poor show against Bangladesh with a half-century. He added 68 with Riley Rossouw before D Shivkumar had Rossouw caught for 17. South Africa were unable to forge any more useful partnerships. Pradeep Sangwan took four wickets, while Srivastava chipped in with two.
