Rhodes' boys on brink of whitewash

England Under-19s defeated South Africa by six wickets to remain on course for a whitewash of their youth one-day international series.

Nottinghamshire left-armer Luke Wood snared 4-16 to bundle out the Proteas for 186 in 48.2 overs.

Skipper Will Rhodes and Haseeb Hameed ensured the chase was never in doubt with an 86-run opening stand.

Luke Wood was named man of the match after his 4-16 from 7.2 overs helped move England Under-19s a game away from a series sweep

Rhodes top-scored with 50 while Tom Alsop chipped in with 37 as England Under-19s got home in good time with 31 balls to spare.

Wood got the ball rolling when he removed both South Africa openers inside the opening powerplay and the visitors never really recovered despite half-centuries from Marques Ackerman and Janneman Malan.

England can complete a clean sweep of the five-match series in the final game at the 3aaa County Ground in Derby on Friday.
