England U19 v South Africa U19 - 3rd Youth ODI - tour of England – Match Preview  

The 3rd One-Day international between England Under-19 and South Africa Under-19 is set to take place at Arundel Cricket Ground, today, July 21, 2011.
The series is well set, with the Proteas winning the first match at Edgbaston, while the hosts, England, coming back strongly to claim victory in the second One Dayer.
The series is very much up for grabs; however, the third match will give the winner a psychological advantage in the remaining matches to come.
The energy and passion of youths from either team is evident, with some great pieces of individual performance as well as collective efforts on display.
For the home side, the star has been their opener, Daniel Bell-Drummond, who is leading in the runs department with a total of 154 runs from the two matches played so far, with an impressive average of 77.00.
He has scored half-centuries in both the matches and possesses a healthy strike rate of 98. England will be looking for Drummond to carry on his good showings in the 3rd ODI as well.
For the South Africans, it will have to be, who is the second highest run maker in the series so far, averaging an inspiring 54.50. He is much similar to his counterpart, Drummond, as the key man for his side.
However, both sides will be hoping that other batters start to chip in with some meaningful contributions, since no batsman, apart from the above two, has scored a half-century.
As far as the bowling is concerned, the leading wicket- taker in the tournament has been South African spinner, Prenelan Subrayen, with 5 scalps to his name.  He has been the main weapon for his side, at a remarkable average (11.00) and economy rate (3.23).
From the English side, is worth mentioning. The youngster, who made his debut in the second One-Day International, was a revelation for his side, claiming figures of 4-36.
It was a dream start for Kapil, who fielded well and then went ahead to take 4 wickets, from which three were clean bowled.
Going with the prediction, one must say the England would have the momentum. However, having said that, one must not underestimate the Proteas, who have the ability to bounce back quickly.
