The sixth and final league stage match of the ongoing U19 tri-nation series took place between hosts South Africa and Afghanistan. The home team needed to win this match to make it to the final against India scheduled on Jan. 10 and they did so with a five-wicket win over Afghanistan.

The win propelled South Africa to second place as they chased down 140 runs in just 25.4 overs thanks to decent knocks from Steve Stolk and Oliver Whitehead. Earlier, after being invited to bat first, only four Afghanistan batters could reach double-digit figures.

Skipper Numan Shah and Rahimullah Murmati scored 35 runs each to put up a fight but Afghanistan capitulated for just 139 runs. Kwena Maphaka was the hero with the ball returning with figures of 5/25 while Nqobani Mokoena picked up three wickets for 43 runs to set up a massive win for South Africa colts.

That said, let us have a look at the top run-getters and the wicket-takers of the tournament
