U19 cricket: SA opening pair bats 209 runs in world cup

2012-08-15 00:00

BRISBANE — Quinton de Kock (126) and Chad Bowes (115) shared a colossal 212-run opening partnership to set up victory by 209 runs in their second ICC U19 Cricket World Cup match against Namibia yesterday.

It is the fifth highest partnership by runs in the tournament’s history. The partnership set the foundation for South Africa’s daunting 359/6 while Namibia were dismissed for 150 in 46 overs with Theunis de Bruyn taking four wickets for 20 runs in just four overs and Prenelan Subrayen two.

There is no rest as the team gear up to face Sri Lanka today in a match that decides which two Pool D teams advance to the quarter-finals.
