West Indies Under-19s pull off win

West Indies Under-19s 426 for 8 (Brathwaite 168*, Alleyne 106) and 153 for 6 (Brathwaite 46, Agar 4-59) beat Australia Under-19s 350 (Patterson 123, Nelson 4-58) and 228 (Bancroft 56, Davis 3-44) by four wickets
Scorecard

West Indies Under-19s took Australia Under-19s last six wickets in their second innings for 41 runs and managed to win the three-day game in Dubai by four wickets. At 187 for 4, Australia looked like they had done enough to earn a draw, but seamer Derone Davis and spinner Kavem Hodge rant through the middle order and tail to set up a 153-run chase.

Kraigg Brathwaite and Akeem Saunders took West Indies to 105 for 1, and though five quick wickets fell after that, their side got home. Legspinner Ashton Agar, who didn't bowl in the first innings, caused the flutter in the chase, and finished with 4 for 59.

Before Australia's late collapse half-centuries from Nick Stevens and Cameron Bancroft had taken them to a seemingly safe position. The win means West Indies have emerged victors in both the fifty-over match series, which they won 2-1, and the one-off Youth Test.
