Half centuries from Nikhil Dutta and Nitish Kumar were not enough to chase down West Indies. Canada move on to the plate round

 

SCORECARD

Sun, 02/16/2014

Faseen Valli became the first batsman in the tournament to score a century and take four wickets in the same match as South Africa overcame a spirited challenge from Canada to win its Group C clash of the ICC Under-19 World Cup by 45 runs at the Abu Dhabi Oval 1.

On Sunday (February 16), Valli’s all-round show ensured South Africa registered its second consecutive win of the tournament to put itself on top of the Group C standings. He scored an unbeaten 102 from 92 balls, with 10 fours and two sixes, and featured in a 102-run fifth-wicket partnership with Bradley Dial (47) as South Africa posted 293 for 6 after being sent into bat.

It was an uphill task, but Canada put up a valiant fight. Sudeepta Aurka, the opener, made a solid 69 and was well assisted by Nitish Kumar (53), the captain. The duo’s stand of 101 for the second wicket ensured Canada needed just a little over seven an over for the last 18 overs, but a middle order collapse put paid to its hopes.

Valli’s offspin proved tough for Canada to negotiate as he returned figures of 4 for 43 in his ten overs. Canada’s innings ended at 248 for 8 in 50 overs, with Sibonela Makhanya, the medium pacer, picking up three wickets. 

Valli is now the leading run-getter and wicket-taker in the tournament with 155 runs and six wickets respectively. 

Canada now take on West Indies on Tuesday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 1 in Abu Dhabi while South Africa will face Zimbabwe on the same day.
