Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 28

Left-arm seamer Rex Singh (4/18) and right-arm speedster Anshul Kamboj (3/20) guided India to an innings and 158 runs victory in the second U-19 Test, helping the hosts wrap up the series 2-0.

South Africa made 152 in the first innings while the hosts piled up 395 in response, riding on tons by Yashasvi Jaiswal (173) and Vaibhav Kandpal (120). The Proteas colts fared worse in the second innings as they slumped to 85 all out after starting the day at 50/2.

They lost eight wickets for 35 runs inside 25 overs. Andile Mokgakane (15) was the first to go, nicking one from Kamboj to captain Suraj Ahuja. Skipper Matthew Montgomery could add only two runs to his overnight score of 34 before edging one from Kamboj to his counterpart Ahuja behind the wickets. 

After the spinners Manishi and Hrithik Shokeen picked up a wicket each, including that of the dangerous Bryce Parsons (6), it was the turn of Manipur paceman Rex to get into the act. 

The left-arm pacer had Luke Beaufort caught by substitute Varun Nayanar for 1 and then took the wickets of Siya Plaatijie (0) and Lifa Ntanzi (4) to wrap up the SA innings. — PTI
