Rile Rossouw's unbeaten 58 guided South Africa to a three-wicket win against West Indies in a Group B preliminary league match of the under-19 cricket World Cup here on Monday.

In other matches, New Zealand defeated Zimbabwe by 98 runs in Johor, Sri Lanka beat Nepal by 61 runs in Penang, while Bangladesh spanked Bermuda by 178 runs here today.

After twin half-centuries from Kieran Powell (53) and Devon Thomas (53) propelled the West Indies to 222 for eight in 50 overs, South Africa did not have a good start, losing opener Pieter Malan for a duck as early as the second ball of the innings.

Rossouw, however, was rock solid and found an able ally in Roy Adams (26 not out) as the side reached the target with 6.1 overs to spare.

Shamarh Brooks was the pick of the West Indian bowlers, claiming four for 39.

In Group A, Corey Anderson struck 82 and Tim Southee completed a five-wicket haul as New Zealand beat Zimbabwe by 98 runs.

In Group C, Sri Lanka, riding on Sachith Pathirana's 62, scored 236-9 in 50 overs and then skittled out Nepal for 175 in 48.5 overs for a facile 61-run victory in Penang.

In the other match of the day, Bangladesh piled up 260 for eight in 50 overs with handsome contributions from Ashraful Hossain (51), Nasir Hossain (84) and Ashiqul Islam (69 not out).

In reply, Bermuda were shot out for 82 in just 26.1 overs as Sohrawadi Shuvo (3-9) and Mahmudul Hasan (3-12) ran through their batting line up.
