Following a nail-biting, teeth-grinding third Youth ODI at the Cumberland Playing Field on December 28, 2021, the West Indies Under-19 emerged victors in another low-scoring affair, this time at the Arnos Vale Cricket Ground.

Once again skipper Ackeem Auguste called correctly, and the decision was to bat first on a dry-looking surface. Leading the batting in another low-scoring encounter was Teddy Bishop with a top-score OF 43 in a total of 126 all out in 35 overs. Rivaldo Clarke made 30, and Jaden Carmichael 10, as wickets fell at 1 for 05, 2 for 12, 3 for 16, 4 for 74, 5 for 85, 6 for 104, 7 for 104, 8 for 116, 9 for 124, all out 126.

Bowling for South Africa Dewald Brevis took 4 for 11, Aphiwe Mnyanda 2 for 19, and Mathew Boast 2 for 41, with 21 extras made of 13 wides, 1 leg-bye, 5 byes, and 2 no-balls.

In reply, South Africa, chasing a target of 127, were all out for 107 in 23.5 overs. Aphiwe Mnyanda top-scored with 20, Valentine Kitime chipped in with 13, and Joshau Stephenson 11. South Africa lost wickets at 1 for 08, 2 for 12, 3 for 29, 4 for 37, 5 for 51, 6 for 56, 7 for 58, 8 for 65, 9 for 74, all out 107.

Jaden Carmichael led the destruction with 3 for 14, McKenny Clarke 3 for 23, and Johann Layne who took the first three wickets to fall, finished with 3 for 34.

Layner was voted by the two coaches as Player-of-the-Series, as the West indies Under-19 wrapped up a 20-run victory against the South Africa Under-19s at the Arnos Vale in the fourth and final game of the Youth One Day International Series, here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines; drawing the four match Series 2-all.
