Sri Lanka Under-19 beat Namibia Under-19 by 77 runs
Right then, that's it from the coverage of this game. Sri Lanka Under-19 move to the top of the table with their second victory on the trot. Namibia Under-19 though will be hoping to come back stronger in their final match of the group stage. The action in the Under-19 World Cup will continue on 25th January 2024 with two matches lined up for you'll. One will see Australia go up against Zimbabwe, while in the other match it is the defending champions, India locking horns against Ireland. Both the matches will start at 1.30 pm IST. But as you all know, you can join us early for the build-up. Until then, take care and goodbye!
Sineth Jayawardena, the victorious skipper says that they are really happy to be on top of the table. He further adds that he is very disappointed about the wickets as they are not meeting the standards of the tournament. He says that they are well prepared to face Australia on the same venue. Ends by praising his bowlers and Supun Waduge for playing a superb innings to get them this win.
Alexander Volschenk, the captain of Namibia Under-19 is in for a chat. He starts by saying that their batting was very poor, he feels that they crumbled. Feels that fielding and bowling was really on the money. Hopes to figure things out in the batting department before the final game against Zimbabwe.
Supun Waduge wins the Player of the Match award for his gritty half-century. He starts by thanking his coaches and association for giving him the opportunity to play for the country and he is very happy to have performed for them. He also adds that the conditions were not something he has not faced before as the wickets in Sri Lanka too are like this. He adds by saying that he is looking to play better cricket in the matches to come.
Stay tuned for the presentations...
Sri Lanka Under-19 needed to apply the squeeze from the very first delivery, and they did that. Their bowlers did not forget to bring their A-game, and put the opposition under pressure with some good bowling. There was a lot of purchase on the deck and their bowlers capitalized on it. The new-ball bowlers were just dealing in dot ball and that automatically helped them to find the early breakthrough. Garuka Sanketh was the one who drew the first blood. Then the wickets kept coming at regular intervals. Mind-blowing strategies came into the picture as well, and every single bowling change from the skipper were inspirational for Sri Lanka Under-19 to get across the line here. They remain unbeaten in their group, which only makes their upcoming contest against Australia Under-19 much more intriguing.
No Namibia! NO! This is not how you do it. It is a defeat that will hurt them most, only because they might've felt that they had the upper hand during the innings break. Although, even their batters could not rise up to the occasion in this run chase. Just like Sri Lanka Under-19 struggled in the first innings, the same happened with Namibia Under-19, but the only difference between the two teams is that not a single batter put his hand up for Namibia Under-19. There were just three partnerships that went into double-digits for them, but none of these went above 20 runs. To make it worse for them, only a single batter in their top 8 could score a boundary, just ONE! Every single one of these batters were sent back on a single digit as well. Only Hanro Badenhorst and Peter-Daniel Blignaut got into double digits, but well you cannot expect too much from your tail-enders. All in all, it was a sorry performance with the blade in hand for Namibia Under-19.
OH MY GOD! What did we just witness here Kimberly. An engrossing game of cricket from the very first delivery. Sri Lanka Under-19 though certainly turned up in their low-score defense and never allowed Namibia Under-19 to shift gears, they were stuck on the first gear throughout the innings, and eventually were bundled out for just 56 runs. I'm sure everyone was thinking a completely different scenario during the halfway mark of this game.

OUT! LBW! That is the end of Johannes De Villiers and Namibia Under-19 are making it tougher for them. Vishwa Lahiru strikes in his first over. Pitches the ball just short and straight at the stumps. Johannes De Villiers stays back and comes across the line and looks to flick it, in the end gets trapped infront of the stumps and gets a hit straight on the front leg. Easy decision for the umpire as he raises his finger. Alexander Volschenk walks out to take the place of Johannes De Villiers.

Garuka Sanketh To Johannes Visagie OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Pressure, pressure! Namibia Under-19 lose their second wicket here. Fuller one, outside off. Johannes Visagie prods and looks to drive it away. It catches the outer half and goes to the right of the fielder at point. Pulindu Perera there dives to that side and gather the ball. Johannes Visagie looks to scamper across, he could've gotten there safely, as the throw was wayward from Pulindu Perera and Garuka Sanketh was rushing towards the stumps at the non-striker's end to provide the backup, but he did not need to get there in time. In desperation, Garuka Sanketh puts his hand in between to not let the ball run away but it deflects off his fingers and end up hitting the sticks which does the trick for them.

Garuka Sanketh To Gerhard Van Rensburg OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! Before Namibia Under-19 could get a run on the board, it is Garuka Sanketh who strikes on the very first delivery of his second over. Lack of foot movement from Gerhard Van Rensburg forces him to trudge off the field for a 7-ball duck. Sri Lanka Under-19 are off to a promising start here. It is a full-length delivery, that swings away just a bit in the air and after hitting the deck it holds its line. Gerhard Van Rensburg looks to defend it out on his front foot but misses it completely. The ball zips past the outside edge and disturbs the furniture behind the batter. Johannes Visagie now comes in at number 3.
