ICC U19 World Cup: West Indies U19 Clinch Thrilling Victory Over England U19 with Pascal’s 58 and Edwards’ All-Round Brilliance

In a riveting encounter at Senwes Park, West Indies U19 emerged victorious with a two-wicket win over England U19, successfully chasing down a target of 193 runs with nine overs to spare. Stephan Pascal’s resilient knock of 58 and Nathan Edwards’ stellar all-round performance, contributing with both bat (49*) and ball (3-28), played pivotal roles in West Indies’ triumph.

Opting to bat first, England U19 posted a total of 192 runs despite a solid effort from Hamza Shaikh, who scored 54 runs. The top order had a promising start, but a middle-order collapse led by Isai Thorne, Raneico Smith, and Tarrique Edward restricted England’s innings.

In response, West Indies U19 faced early setbacks but found stability through Pascal, Jordan Johnson, and Mavendra Dindiyal. Pascal’s crucial contribution was followed by a late charge from Nathan Edwards, who guided the team to a thrilling win. Despite England’s attempts to make a comeback by taking quick wickets, Edwards’ resilient batting secured the victory for West Indies U19.
