England Men's U19s beat Zimbabwe in World Cup Super Sixes

England Men's U19 beat Zimbabwe Men's U19 by 147 runs

England won their last game of the Super Six stage of the ICC Men's U19 Cricket World Cup against Zimbabwe, but it wasn't enough to secure qualification to the semi-finals.

Previous results in the competition meant England were unable to progress to join India, Australia, South Africa in the last four but they signed off in style with 17-year-old Warwickshire leg-spinner Tazeem Ali recording figures of 7-29.

England batted first and were indebted to Charlie Allison, his 76 belying a slight wobble to take his team to 237-7.

Opening bat Theo Wylie made 61, while Hamza Sheikh was controversially given out obstructing the field.

In reply it was the Tazeem Ali show, awarded Player of the Match after taking the last seven wickets to fall.

His haul came after two early wickets for Charlie Barnard and one for Jaydn Denly, meaning all England’s wickets went to spinners.
