South Africa Under-19s 241 for 9 (Coetzee 58) beat England Under-19s 229 for 9 (Overton 48, Dupavillion 3-47) by 12 runs
Scorecard

England Under-19s fell just short in their run chase to go 2-0 down in the five-match series against South Africa. Daryn Dupavillion claimed three wickets and another display of lower-order hitting from Jamie Overton was not enough to prevent South Africa closing out the game.

When Overton joined Ed Barnard at the crease with England on 122 for 6, the match was heading South Africa's way, as five different wicket-takers chipped in and only Callum Jackon (42) had made it past 18. Overton and Barnard put on 77 in 12.1 overs, with the former scoring 48 from 46 balls, but by the time he became Corbin Bosch's second wicket the run rate had risen to an onerous degree.

South Africa's 241 had been based on several solid contributions, Murray Coetzee top-scoring with 58. After a 68-run opening stand between Coetzee and Clyde Fortuin, wickets fell at regular intervals, Olly Stone taking 2 for 42 on his return, but a 49-run stand for the seventh wicket between Greg Oldfield (32) and Jason Smith came in good time and pushed South Africa to a defendable total.
