Yashasvi Jaiswal starred with the bat and ball as India Under-19 put up a commanding show to beat South Africa Under-19 in the second Youth ODI at the Buffalo Park in East London on Saturday and won the three-match series with a game to spare.
Put in to bat, South Africa Under-19 never really got going and were bowled out for 119 in under 30 overs. The hometeam was 71/2 at one stage, but lost three wickets in a space of two runs and were reduced to 73/5.
For India Under-19, Yashasvi Jaiswal scalped four wickets in his 3.5 overs while Akash Singh, Atharva Ankolekar and Ravi Bishnoi got two wickets each.
In the chase, India Under-19 lost two wickets early as Priyam Garg and Shashwat Rawat got out for 0 and 2 respectively.
However, Jaiswal, after impressing with the ball in hand earlier in the match, came to the party with the bat as well. The left-hander took on the South Africa Under-19 bowlers and scored unbeaten 89 off 56 balls as he and Dhruv Jurel, who remained not out on 26, sealed India Under-19’s eight-wicket win.
The third match of the series will be played on Monday.
