Jacob Miltz’s 61 and a determined lower-order fightback hauled the South African U19s to 232 on the first day of the first Test against England, in Scarborough on Sunday.
South Africa’s U19s were given a massive wake-up call when they were beaten by India U19 by 189 runs in their first World Cup warm-up match.
Left-arm spinner Sean Whitehead took five wickets for six runs as South Africa beat Fiji by 282 runs in a warm-up match ahead of the U19 World Cup.
All in all it has been a good week for Toni de Zorzi. Fresh from guiding Gauteng to victory in the Khaya Majola week, he has been rewarded with the captaincy of the SA Under 19 team which will defend their world title in Bangladesh in January.
