Yashasvi Jaiswal (173) and Vaibhav Kandpal (120) helped India Under-19 pile up 395 in their first innings and take control of the proceedings on day two of the second Youth Test against South Africa Under-19 in Thiruvananthapuram.
In the recently concluded series against England, India u-19 dominated their opposition to register a clean sweep. Comparing the Indian side with its counterparts, WV Raman, who was the India coach in the youth series, stated that the team is way ahead.
Chasing a target of 223, India got off to a bright start despite losing Himanshu Rana early. However, as wickets fell at regular intervals the Indian side lost the momentum but Kamlesh Nagarkoti with some sensible batting took India across the line with four balls to spare.
