West Indies U19s lost by one wicket today and went 0-2 down to England U19 in their five-match Youth ODI series at Beckenham.

The West Indies won the toss and elected to bat and made 180-9 in 39.3 overs.

Notwithstanding, Matthew Nandu retiring hurt for four, the young West Indies side got off to a good start with an opening stand of 64 inside 12 overs before Anderson Amurdan was bowled by Fateh Singh for 27.

Teddy Bishop, who replaced Nandu, made an unbeaten 97 while carrying his bat throughout the remainder of the innings even as his side collapsed around him.

He and Captain Akeem Auguste had added 22 for the second wicket when the latter was bowled by Matthew Prest for 6, triggering a capitulation that saw the West Indies lose their last seven wickets for 94 runs.

It would have been worse had it not been for a 54-run seventh-wicket partnership between Bishop and Isai Thorne, who was the only other batsman to make double figures, with 11.

Prest (3-36), Jacob Bethell (3-29) and Sonny Baker (2-19) were the destroyers as the West Indies failed to bat their allotment of 50 overs.

In reply, England lost wickets early and were 26-2 with openers Prest and William Luxton in the hutch for 11 and 0, respectively. Bethell and James Rew put on 53 for the third wicket before the former was dismissed by Onaje Armory for 20.

Rew was the anchor for the England middle order as the home side got to 155 for 5 inside 29 overs, only 26 runs from their target. However, once he was run out for 63, things swung the West Indies way as England slipped to 162 for 9 by over 35.

However, Singh, who was unbeaten on 12 and Nathan Bramwell on three, took England over the line.

Thorne was the best of the West Indies bowlers with 3-54 while Armory ended with 2-42 and Anderson Mahase 2-34.

    Former Windies skipper, Darren Sammy, believes the team has the potential to do well on the upcoming tour of India, particularly with some of the talents on display during the England series.

    The Caribbean team will head to South Asia immediately following the conclusion of the ongoing series against England, where they are currently leading 2-1.  The series has featured a number of standout performances so far, with the likes of Akeal Hosein, Romario Shepherd, and some of the more commonly known names like Rovman Powell and Nicholas Pooran all putting together noteworthy performances during the series so far.

     “They have got some really good one-day players, but we have unearthed some new talents in the ongoing series against England,” Sammy said of the team’s chances for the upcoming series.

    “I think the West Indies would do well, but you would need the guys to take the wickets with the new ball.”

    The former captain also believes the team’s cause could be helped by the knowledge of current captain Kieron Pollard.

    “He has been playing in India for so long (at the IPL) and knows the conditions very well,” Sammy said. “Hopefully that experience and knowledge he could bring on to the field.”

    West Indies head coach Phil Simmons is pleased to see vice-captain Nicholas Pooran slotting comfortably into the number three role in the team’s recent T20 win against England.

    Partnered with man-of-the-match Rovman Powell, Pooran put on a near-perfect display, a combination of power-hitting, game management, and finesse.  The batsman put together a crucial 70 from 43 deliveries, which formed part of a match-winning 122 partnership for the third wicket.

    Simmons admits the knock was a good illustration of the type of role the team envisions the batsman is capable of playing.

    “It’s been a plan since World Cup.  As we saw, he is understanding his role better and better and yesterday (Wednesday) just showed exactly how we see him controlling the innings,” Simmons told members of the media on Wednesday.

    “His communication and control with Rovman was a big plus yesterday,” he added.

    Pooran came to the crease following the departure of Brandon King and was part of a 37-run partnership with Shai Hope before joining forces with Powell.

    In total, Pooran has played 14 matches batting at the number three position, scoring a total of 356 runs, and has averaged 32.36 so far.

    West Indies Under-19s will now compete in the 11th place playoff at the ICC Men’s Under-19 Cricket World Cup after an embarrassing 83 run loss to UAE Under-19s in their Plate semi-final in Port of Spain today.

    UAE won the toss and elected to bat first, reaching 224-9 off their 50 overs thanks to half-centuries from Aayan Khan (93) and Shival Bawa (51).

    Shiva Sankar led the way for the Windies bowlers with 3-31 off nine overs while Nathan Edward and Matthew Nandu took two wickets each.

    Jash Giyanani and Dhruv Parashar then combined to take seven wickets between them to restrict the West Indians to a modest 142 all out in reply.

    Nathan Edward (51), Kevin Wickham (22), and Isai Thorne (17) were the only batsmen to score double figures against Giyanani’s 3-21 off 10 overs and Parashar’s 4-30 off nine.

    The West Indies will now play the loser of the Plate semi-final between Ireland and Zimbabwe in the 11th place playoff while UAE will play the winner in the ninth-place playoff.
