The ICC U19 World Cup in South Africa was a witness to a couple of matches in Group B on Monday. The contest between Nigeria and Australia was a pretty one-sided affair. Australia beat Nigeria by 10 wickets to register first points in the tournament. Nigeria went through a nightmare after winning the toss and electing to bat first they were blown away for 61 in 30.3 overs. Aussie leg-spinner Tanveer Sangha picked up a five-wicket haul and gave away 14 runs in his 10 overs, including four maidens. The youngster got decent support from Bradley Simpson, who ended with three wickets. Only Nigerian opener Elijah Olaleye (21) made it double digits. Chasing a modest total, opener Sam Fanning (30) and Jake Fraser-McGurk (23) blazed away and tracked down the 62-run target in only 7.4 overs.
In the other match on Group B, West Indies comprehensively beat England by 71 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis (D/L) method. After being put in to bat first, the Caribbean team notched 267 in their 50 overs. Windies openers, Kimani Melius (24) and Leonardo Julien (40) got starts, but couldn’t convert. However, Kevin Anderson (86) steadied the ship and stayed unbeaten until the very end of the innings. Coming in to bat at number seven, Nyeem Young made 66 off 41 balls smacked five fours and four sixes helped his side amass 104 runs in the last 10 overs. Lewis Goldsworthy was the best bowler for England, returning figures of 2/28 in his 10 overs. While chasing England made a steady start, but lost wickets at regular intervals.
