Under-19 World Cup: West Indies beat India by 4 wickets
Sun, Aug 12, '12
TOWNSVILLE: Shoddy batting by top-order saw Unmukt Chand-led India Under-19 side lose their opening World Cup match against the West Indies by four wickets on Sunday.
On a slow track at the Tony Ireland stadium, the Indian colts could never get going as they were restricted to a paltry 166 for eight in their stipulated 50 overs.
Despite early hiccups, the West Indies team slowly but surely reached the target with 17 balls to spare. John Campbell (36, 70 balls, 1x4, 1x6) and Anthony Alleyne (52, 91 balls, 2x4, 1x6) added 58 runs for the third wicket to put West Indies on track while Alleyne and Kyle Mayers (43, 54 balls, 4x4,1x6) added another 58 for the fifth wicket to consolidate further.
