For South Africa Under-19, Dewald Brevis top scored with 65 runs while Matthew Boast took three wickets for 40 runs.

It was an overall good performance from the team, though the batting left a lot to be desired as they managed to get past the first hurdle. The openers, Angkrish Raghuvanshi and Harnoor Singh were dismissed early without putting many runs on the board. Captain Dhull managed to steady the ship and played a fine innings of 82.

India were saved by their bowlers with Vicky Otswal and Raj Angad Bawa particularly shining. While Otswal got a five-wicket haul, Bawa chipped in with four wickets to sweep the South African batting order.
