South Africa’s Under 19 cricket team got their ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup campaign off to an emphatic start in their opening match in Lincoln, New Zealand.

The South Africans produced a crushing 169-run victory over Kenya.

Captain, Raynard van Tonder, elected to bat first after winning the toss and the skipper led from the front , clubbing the third-highest score by a South African in Under-19 ODIs.

The move match AB de Villiers’ 143 from more than a decade ago¬† as they scored 341 for seven in their 50 overs.

Kenyans were restricted to a paltry 172 for seven in reply.
