KIMBERLEY – All-rounder Nyeem Young became the first West Indian and only the fourth player of all time to hit a half-century and take five wickets at an ICC Under-19 World Cup, as a clinical West Indies trounced England by 71 runs under Duckworth-Lewis-Stern yesterday, to take a giant step towards the second round of the tournament.

With the Windies wobbling on 138 for five in the 35th over after they were sent in, Young arrived at No. 7 to blast a whirlwind 66 from 41 balls and propel the Caribbean side to 267 for seven off their 50 overs.

The Barbadian combined forces with Guyanese Kevlon Anderson, who top-scored with an invaluable 86 not out, as West Indies plundered 104 runs from the last 10 overs.

In reply, England were well placed at 120 for two at the end of the 29th over before Young produced a lethal burst with his lively medium pace to capture five for 45 and cripple the innings. (CMC)
