South Africa Under-19s 153 for 3 (Verster 67, Jennings 56, Kaia 3-23) beat Zimbabwe Under-19s 152 (Bentley 82, Engelbrecht 4-24) by seven wickets
South Africa's dominance over Zimbabwe continued as they needed just 33 overs to chase down the visitors' low total at Boland Park in Paarl, and went up 4-0 in the five-match series. While it was South Africa's spinners who wreaked havoc in the third ODI, their faster bowlers stepped up on Tuesday.
Seamer Rabian Engelbrecht picked up four wickets for 24 in his 10 overs, while left-arm spinner Prenelan Subrayen followed up his five-for in the third match with three scalps in the fourth and Zimbabwe were bowled out for 152 in 47.2 overs. Matthew Bentley scored more than half those runs, getting 82.
South Africa cruised in their chase. Captain Keaton Jennings, returning after missing the third game, scored his third half-century of the series, while Regardt Verster got his second on the trot.
