U-19 World Cup | Dhull takes India to 232
Skipper Yash Dhull helped India recover from a poor start and post 232 against South Africa in its Under-19 World Cup opener here on Saturday. Dhull’s solid 82 off 100 balls with 11 fours was the highlight of India’s fighting total.
Left-arm pacer Aphiwe Mnyanda rocked the Indian top-order by trapping in-form opener Harnoor Singh (1) and his partner Angriksh Raghuvanshi (5).
Dhull and Shaik Rasheed (31) added 71 before the latter fell. The captain then added 44 with Nishant Sidhu (27). Kaushal Tambe (35), too, chipped in.
Australia eased past West Indies by six wickets and Sri Lanka defeated Scotland by 30 runs on the opening day.
