A better result by the youngsters

After being thumped by the India under-19 team in their first test, the New Zealand youngsters responded with a 73 run victory in the second test. A couple of names are starting to make themselves noticed too. Tim Southee took 12 wickets in this match (six in each innings) while Michael Tairoa scored a century. Andrew de Boorder, Kyle Williamson and Carl Anderson have all managed a decent score or two in the series so far as well. De Boorder scored 516 runs at an average of 258 in the domestic tournament that preceeded this series, while Tairoa managed 456 runs at 91.2 in the same competition.
