After an opening defeat to Australia on day one of the ICC Men’s Under-19 World Cup last Friday at Providence, West Indies rebounded to beat Scotland by seven wickets on Monday in St. Kitts.

Opting to bowl first in their Group D match-up, West Indies skittled out Scotland for just 95 in 35.1 overs. The Caribbean lads then responded well, getting to 96-3 in 19.4 overs to take full points from the contest.

Sankar finished with 3-17 off seven overs, while Anderson Mahase took 2-16 and Onaje Amory 2-26.

In reply, West Indies lost three wickets- Matthew Nandu (8), Shaqkere Parris (26) and Rivaldo Clarke (13)- before Teddy Bishop and Jordan Johnson saw the hosts to victory.

Bishop, who struck a four and six to close out the game, finished on 23 and Johnson 14. Bowling for Ireland, Charlie Peet took 1-15, Oliver Davidson 1-19 and Jack Jarvis 1-19.
