Scotland U19 vs West Indies U19: West Indies won the toss and opted to field first in Match 13 of the Under 19 World Cup at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom. Both teams will look to open their account on the points table after losing their opening matches. The two teams are placed in Group alongside England and South Africa which put them in a tricky position to qualify for the next round.
In their first match, West Indies had an ominous start to their 286-run chase against South Africa, losing their top three within the first three overs. Kwena Maphaka did the initial damage with the ball. His efforts were soon backed up by Riley Norton, and the Caribbean side lost half their team by the 10-over mark.
It was then that Jewel Andrew’s quality shone through. Along with Nathan Sealy, Andrew exhibited patience as well as ruthlessness, his six-hitting particularly eye-catching.
Andrew hit 11 fours and three sixes on the way to his century, keeping West Indies in the game, with Sealy providing an assured hand at the other end. However, South Africa made the most of an unfortunate mix-up, running out Sealy and reducing West Indies to 190/6.
Andrew continued from the other end, keeping West Indies in the hunt with his exquisite strokeplay. So long as Andrew was in the middle, it seemed West Indies had a chance of pulling off a heist.
However, Maphaka and Riley Norton, the wicket-takers in the first Powerplay, proved to be South Africa’s saviours. Back-to-back wickets from the duo put the Proteas on the brink of a win, with Andrew falling for an exquisite 130 to Norton.
Maphaka finished the formalities in the 41st over, ending with a brilliant 5/38.
