Skipper Ashok Menaria shone with the ball while debutant Produturi Reddy starred with the bat as defending champion India thumped England by seven wickets to stay in hunt for a fifth place finish in the ICC Under-19 World Cup.

After England opted to bat first, leg-spinner Menaria (4/35) wrecked the British side which folded for 176 in 49.2 overs. Jos Buttler topscored for them with a 125-ball 78.

Chasing the target, India cruised to 179 for three in 36.4 for a facile win with Reddy hammering a 116-ball 94 to run away with the Man of the Match award.

The Indian colts will take on their South African counterparts on Wednesday in the fifth place playoff match. Reddy, who featured in a 87-run opening partnership with Mayank Agarwal (28) to give India a solid start, cracked nine fours and two sixes during his 116-ball innings.

India lost two quick wickets in the form of Agarwal and Lokesh Rahul (22) before Reddy was also removed by Nathan Buck (2/41).

Mandeep Singh's unbeaten 20-ball 22, however, helped them achieve the target with Menaria (1) giving him company.
