Australia thump Nigeria at Under-19 Cricket World Cup - Sports Leo

Tanveer Sangha starred with the ball as Australia beat Nigeria by 10 wickets to pick up their first Group B points of the Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Kimberley on Monday.

The result was much needed for Australia, one of the tournament favourites, after losing their opening fixture against the West Indies on Saturday.

Leg-spinner Sangha picked up 5/14 to help bowl Nigeria out for 61, with the African nation’s maiden Under-19 Cricket World Cup fixture ending in disappointment.

Sangha was ably supported by seamer Brad Simpson, who picked up three early wickets while Elijah Olaleye (21) top-scored for Nigeria.

In response, Australia took just 46 balls to reach the target with the opening pair of Sam Fanning (30) and Jake Fraser-McGurk (23) both unbeaten when the teams shook hands.

“Having to win by 10 wickets over any team is always an impressive result,” said Australian captain, Mackenzie Harvey.

“We have a good team in both batting and bowling. We have the momentum now and hopefully, we can keep that up when we play England next.”

Australia will play England in their final group match on Thursday, a match that looks set to confirm which two teams will progress from Group B.

West Indies will take on Nigeria in a simultaneous fixture, while the group concludes two days later when England take on the tournament debutants in Kimberley.
