Defending 127, Australia were facing one of their earliest exits from the tournament as their opponents raced to 0-45 from seven overs.

That was before the South Australian leggie snaffled 8-35 from 9.4 overs – the best spell in an Under-19 World Cup – to skittle England for just 96.

Australian batsman Jason Sangha earlier gave his team something to defend, knocking 58 runs from 91 balls.
