South Zone under 19 team's recovery was largely possible due to lack of variety in the England under 19 team's bowling and shoddy fielding; as many as five chances went a begging.Batting first after winning the toss, the South Zone under-19 despite a lively 42 in 42 minutes off 34 balls, nine fours, by opener T Suman, failed to build on the good start. They lost Shashank Nag (2), skipper Arjun Yadav (10) and A S K Varma (1) cheaply. Suman failed to make good of a chance when his score was 39. But thriving on two chances Chougule hit up 97, playing the sheet anchor role in a 238-minute stay at the wicket. He hit 13 fours in his 179 ball innings before falling to England left arm spinner Monty Panesar. With Vijaysai Suri (44, 163 minutes, five fours), Chougule resurrected the innings with a stand of 134 runs for the fifth wicket in 44.4 overs. Vijay enjoyed one life. From 129 for four at lunch, the South Zone under-19 team went into tea at 211 for 6, after which, a stand of 32 runs for the seventh wicket between Tahir Hussain (26, 110 minutes, four fours) and Md Faiq (23, 36 minutes, four fours) consolidated the position. For the struggling England under-19 team, medium pacer Ian Pattison (2-40) and left-arm spinner Rob Ferley (2-53) were the most successful bowlers. UNI
