India U19 B is ready to welcome the South African U19 team at St Xavier’s College Ground for the second fixture in the quadrangular U-19 ODI series. After being thrashed by 157 runs in the first game, the Proteas find themselves in a do-or-die situation whereas the India U19 B team must be beaming with confidence after winning the opening match comprehensively by seven wickets. Both the teams will collide with each other in another epic encounter of this ODI series.
India B emerged victorious in the opening match against Afghanistan U19 side. Their bowling attack started the onslaught to bundle the visitors out for 107 runs. While chasing a small total, India began on a defensive note but Tilak Varma (44*) and skipper Rahul Chandrol (56*) took the hosts over the line. They would be hoping for the same kind of dominant performance in this second ODI against a potentially weaker team. India B will surely book their berth in the finals if they win this crucial contest.
On the contrary, South Africa are still searching for their first win in this tour. After being hammered in the test series, the Proteas needed to make some amends in this One-day series. However, their fate remained the same in the 50-over format as the India A side outplayed the visitors in the first ODI. They are currently languishing at the bottom of the table and have to win the remaining two games if they want to stay alive in this series. South Africa would be eyeing to break this jinx and bounce back to winning ways when they take on the India B.
