Olly Stone led England Under-19s to a comprehensive 107-run victory in the first Youth Test against South Africa in Cape Town.

The Northamptonshire all-rounder, who was captaining the side in the absence of the injured Shiv Thakor, took 2-49 as the home side were bowled out for 163 in pursuit of a target of 271 at Newlands.

Stone also took 4-40 in the first innings for the tourists who will take an unassialable 1-0 series lead into the second and final Test which gets underway in Paarl on Sunday.

His County colleague Ben Duckett had a quiet game, making 13 and 8 in his two innings.
