Athanaze, Yadram level series for Windies U-19s*

Trinidad Express / PIETERMARITZBURG   Lower order batsman Alick Athanaze struck a bold, unbeaten half-century to lift West Indies Under-19s to a crucial four-wicket win over South Africa Under-19s yesterday and set up a thrilling end to the five-match series. Chasing a modest 208 for victory in the fourth Youth One-Day International at City Oval, West Indies got home in the 45th over with Athanaze top-scoring with 66 not out. Bhaskar Yadram extended his good run of form with 65 while Matthew Patrick chipped in with 28 on debut. Sixteen-year-old off-spinner Kgaudisa Molefe claimed three for 51. The hosts had earlier stumbled to 207 all out off 48.2 overs, after they were sent in, with opener Matthew Breetzke stroking 55, captain Raynard van Tonder, 38, and Hermann Rolfes, 37.
