Jan. 11th, 2010
Australia and Sri Lanka both put up scores of over 300 in the first day of official warm-up matches leading into the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup.
Two Sri Lankans scored centuries as the side ruthlessly despatched Hong Kong, while Australia’s performance was an outstanding team effort with both bat and ball.
Other winners today included South Africa, England, Pakistan, India, Ireland, and Bangladesh, who beat New Zealand in a rain-shortened match.
Lanka v Hong Kong
Hong Kong was never in the running to chase down Sri Lanka’s mammoth total despite a dogged fight. Senior Hong Kong international Irfan Ahmad and Auckland-based 15-year old Mark Chapman put on 43 for the fifth wicket, and Chapman finished 69 not out.
Australia v West
The West Indies batsmen also got starts, with Yannic Cariah scoring 65, but were unable to stay ahead of the run rate chasing Australia’s total of – and with nine wickets down when rain stopped play early the Duckworth-Lewis calculation left them well adrift.
Canada v South
The South Africans had
the measure of the Canadian batting throughout. Opening bowler Graham
Hume removed the top three and finished with figures of three for
England v Papua
Earlier England dismissed PNG for 141 in the 47th over. Sese Bau top scored with a defiant 33. For England Matthew Dunn finished with three for 24, while Nathan Buck, Paul Best and skipper Azeem Rafiq, each claimed two.
Pakistan v Zimbabwe
Earlier a century from
Muhammad Babar Azam anchored Pakistan’s innings, sharing in
a 113-run fourth wicket partnership with captain Azeem Ghumann (62).
Hammad Azam also chipped in a quick fire 40 from 22. Medium pacer
Nathan Waller was the best of the Zimbabwe bowlers, finishing with
2 for 23.
In reply Ireland
lost two quick wickets but consolidated with a third wicket partnership
of 148 between Balbirnie and James Shannon. Balbirnie went through
to his hundred off 129 balls with nine boundaries. Ben Ackland joined
his skipper and the pair saw Ireland home in 45 overs. Balbirnie
finished not out on 108.
Zealand v Bangladesh
Bangladesh got off to the worst possible start with Anamul Haque bowled first ball, but soon settled and kept ahead of the required run rate. Amit Majumder and Saikat Ali peppered the boundary regularly, putting on 99 for the second wicket. Left-hander Muminul Showrav showed some excellent strokeplay to score 66, taking Bangladesh to 229 in the 40th over when rain forced the players from the field.
