Installed in Group B, they also take on powerful England and minnows Nigeria, and know they will have to upset one of the highly favoured sides in order to advance. Tomas Mackintosh and Syed Shah got into the double digits, but bothy couldn't carry on. Both the openers departed in the first over of the innings as pacer Tahir Hussain reduced Scotland to 24-3. From there, right-arm fast bowler Mohammad Abbas Jr came to the party.

The Caribbean side beat Canada by three wickets in Soweto on Monday before returning to crush Scotland by 126 runs in Pretoria on Wednesday - results that not only allowed them to acclimatise to conditions but also bolster their confidence. Their run-chase was off to a shaky start as openers Haider Ali (four) and Mohammad Shehzad (0) were back in the pavilion in the first eight balls. But skipper Rohail Nazir and Irfan Khan put on 47 runs for the third wicket to take their team close to victory.

Put into bat first, Japan folded very quickly and were bowled out for 41 in 22.5 overs. Skipper Priyam Garg (56) contributed with a well-made half-century in the middle-overs before a strong finish from wicketkeeper Dhruv Jurel (52*) and Siddhesh Veer (44*) helped India post a daunting total of 297 in their 50 overs.

In Sunday's encounter, India defeated the Islanders by 90 runs.


Jurel and Veer remained unbeaten on 52 and 44 respectively. Once they got out, the innings fell away and India kept turning the screws.

While Sri Lanka captain Nipun Dananjaya scored a fifty, it was not enough as India bowled out Sri Lanka Under 19 for 207.

Even in the run-up to the ongoing edition, India has won a bilateral series against South Africa, followed by a Quadrangular contest. Akash Singh, Siddhesh Veer and Ravi Bishnoi picked two wickets each.

West Indies Under-19s start off as favourites to win the game.
