Jan.9 (CRICKETNMORE) - India register 189 runs victory over South Africa in U19  WC warm-up match.

Indian batsmen seized control through a 138-run fourth-wicket partnership between Aryan Juyal (86 off 92 balls) and Himanshu Rana (68 off 69 balls), which was supplemented by several small but useful efforts, taking the side to 332 for eight in 50 overs

India fast bowler Ishan Porel then ripped through South Africa’s top-order with a four-wicket haul, while Abhishek Sharma followed his useful 35-run knock with two wickets even as the 2014 champions were dismissed for 143 runs in 38.3 overs.
