I agree! I like him a lot and he has a great future. the series against NZ revealed a better side of this young lad and under Coach Siddons, he will be a great asset to BD cricket. He is not yet 19 yrs, and most batsmen dont mature until they are about 25 yrs old, so he has many years before him.
Can you imagine that a few months ago, fans here were writing him off.

South Africa's selectors have stuck with the players tested during the recent home series against India and Bangladesh for the Under-19s World Cup in Malaysia even though they failed to register a win in any of the Tests or the earlier triangular tournament.

Wayne Parnell, the left-arm fast bowler, will lead the team, and he will be confident after a five-wicket haul in the second Test against India. Ray Jennings, the former South Africa coach, will guide the side, assisted by Grant Morgan and Henry Williams.

Here is the cricinfo page for all the squads announced so far -

http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/u19wc2008/content/squad?object=288278

Associates teams are allowed to field players that are one year older i.e. players that are born on or after September 1, 1987 (full member teams are restricted to players born on or after September 1, 1988). So, don't be surprised to see 20+ years old players in those teams.

Each week I would try to shed some light on each team.

Spot light Australia:

The recent drubbing by Pakistan (5-0) showed some weaknesses. Basically, away from home and foreign pitch condition can be blamed. Still some glimpes of quality players can bite any team at any given moment. Just a reminder to everyone they did beat Pakistan at home 3-2. They have some promising bowlers.

DJ Burns and SD Robson are the workhorse of this team. They are the wicket takers and both have excellent strike rate. MA Starc and JR Hazelwood can be handy at times.

No matter what the recent results may be they are no push over and if the so called better teams are not watchfull an upset can be on the horizon. They are not so good as I would put them as a dark horse. More like a spoiler. Add the two talented player mentioned by Eshen, they should move to the second round and cause some grey hair for other teams.

No, I only counted the five matches at Pakistan and two on Malaysia (last October). Murphy, Robson, Starc all played in those matches. I did not include the April series at home. Thought the more recent matches would feature current players. Same for Ind-Pak series didnot include in the table.

I guess the selectors didn't like some of the boys who got thrashed. Their bowling may suffer.

the reason behind selection of the three has been quoted as good performance against malaysia & challengers trophy

sinceAmit has been a decent performer over the last few years, esp in u-19 matches, his inclusion is not a surprise.

but i would love to know what special have we got from the other two?
while others had to prove themselves agt opponents like pak, ind, sl & saf, how performance agt weak malaysians could be so vital to earn somebody a place in the team?

can anybody give us any information regarding their performance agt malaysia?

Spot light South Africa:
South Africa recently faced India and Bangladesh. Against the Indians in oneday games got the customary beating. However against Bangladesh they fought well. In test they hold their own. They have some fire power in both batting and bowling.

JD Vandiar (Highest score 119), Hendricks (HS 156), Rossouw (83), Smuts (77), Malan (77, 71) all can score big innings. A formidable batting lineup when they click. The only knock against them is they are not tested outside of SA. All these players play regularly in the U-19 regional matches. (BD don't have these type of competitions, sigh*)

Bowling attack is triggered by W Parnell (Captain). He is the main wicket taker. M Vallie, Pienaar, Malan would be featured heavily in the coming WC.

They are in the group of death. Which features West Indies and India. To qualify for the second round they must beat WI. The forth team is Papua New Guinea who would be getting ready for the plate championship.

Notable talents from different teams -

Australia: Michael Hill, Phillip Hughes
Bangladesh: Dolar Mahmud, Suhrawadi Shuvo
England: Billy Godleman, Steven Finn
India: Virat Kohli, Tanmay Srivastava
New Zealand: Tim Southee
Pakistan: Imad Wasim, Ahmed Shehzad
Sri Lanka: Sachith Pathirana
West Indies: Adrian Barath
Bermuda: Malachi Jones
Namibia: Dawid Botha

Shuvo is well out of form with the ball. He is not much of a batsman either than a few cameos here and there. I would rather put Nasir Hossain, Mahmudul Hasan or Rubel there.

Also with India, S Tiwary is prodigious talent.
India Also have a certain Napolian Einstein!!! Must be some hell of a player...:D

For Srilanka, Fernando is promising bowler.

BD played Malaysia at home? I am not aware of that. I was just trying to answer jisaan's the last question.

Hey jisaan,
Which one was the challengers trophy? Who were the opponents? The databases say Bd in SL, SL in BD, Bd in SA etc. No challengers trophy mentioned.

Spot light Pakistan:
Defending champion, poised for another run to the finals. Has a very balanced team. Full of talented performers. On paper, they are the second/third best team in the world. They also have regular U-19 inter district tournaments. So these boys are well seasoned.
Bowling:
Captain Imad Wasim is the bomb. He averages over two wickets per game. He is well supported by Mohammad Rameez, Adil Raza, Shahzaib Ahmed and Ahmed Shehzad.

All of them have good averages. Will take an all out performance by any opponent to dislodge this bunch. Anything short of Semi-Finals would be a huge disappointed.

Counting from 2005, Imad Wasim got 60 wickets in youth ODIs. He is on his way to break Piyush Chawla's record of 71 wickets at this level.

Hey jisaan,
Which one was the challengers trophy? Who were the opponents? The databases say Bd in SL, SL in BD, Bd in SA etc. No challengers trophy mentioned.

If I am not mistaken, challengers trophy is the four team (East, West, North and South) competition we had during the NCL to give second string players a chance to show off their skills. Many young under-19 players played in that tournament and performed reasonably well.

Who will be the next Brian Lara, Inzamam-ul-Haq or Sanath Jayasuriya?

ICC Media Release

Let the star spotting begin. With less than four weeks to go before the start of the ICC U/19 Cricket World Cup (U/19 CWC) 2008 in Malaysia, all 16 squads have now been finalised. History has taught us that it’s highly likely this year’s tournament will reveal some of the great players of the future.

Brian Lara, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Sanath Jayasuriya, Michael Atherton, Yuvraj Singh, Chris Cairns, Michael Clarke, Graeme Smith and many other household names have used the U/19 CWC as a stepping stone to full international honours.

Pakistan is going for three in a row having won this tournament in 2004 and 2006, and the side is captained by Imad Wasim, a left-arm spinner who is also a useful batsman. Imad captained this strong Pakistan side to a 5-0 win over Australia in October last year and also a 3-1 win away to England last August.

One of the other players to watch for the defending champion will be Umar Akmal, who is the brother of Kamran, the Pakistan senior team’s wicketkeeper. The younger Akmal enjoyed an excellent season in first-class cricket scoring 851 runs, including an outstanding 248 against Karachi Blues.

For Australia, captain Michael Hill, who has appeared for New South Wales this season, (actually Hughes is the one plays for NSW. Hill is from Victoria) will be working hard to ensure his side’s fortunes improve following that 5-0 series defeat to Pakistan in October.

Much attention will also be on powerful opening batsman, Kumar Sarna, who was born in Delhi but who grew up Down Under.

A side to watch out for in this event will undoubtedly be Bangladesh, which is fresh from a place in the final of a triangular series in South Africa, where it was edged out by India. The side also managed to defeat Pakistan in a five-match series in 2007, despite having lost the opening two matches. Much will be expected of Sohrawardi Shuvo, the slow left-arm bowler who has already taken an impressive 69 wickets in 15 first-class matches.

England has experienced indifferent form over the past 12 months but will be led by the impressive Alex Wakely, who scored a half-century on his first-class debut for Northamptonshire last year.

Much is thought of England’s pace bowlers Steven Finn, who spent the latter part of 2007 in India with the England Performance Programme squad, and Glamorgan’s James Harris who became the first 17-year-old to take a seven-wicket haul in the County Championship.

Fresh from winning a recent triangular series in South Africa, India will be one of the favourites for the competition. Virat Kohli, who will captain the side, has made 373 runs at an average of 53 in five first-class matches, including a top score of 159, so he will surely be one to watch.

For New Zealand, skipper Kane Williamson showed evidence of his potential when he made an excellent 47 not out off 56 balls for Northern Districts against Bangladesh’s senior side in a rain-affected match at the end of 2007.

But Williamson will need support from the likes of Corey Anderson, Greg Morgan, Tim Southee and Trent Boult who were all were selected for New Zealand A’s three-week training camp in Darwin last year. The side contains Michael Bracewell, nephew of former Test players John and Brendon Bracewell, and Hamish Rutherford, son of former Black Caps’ captain Ken.

South Africa had a disappointing U/19 CWC in 2006 and recent form suggests they could be up against it this time around too, having performed disappointingly in the recent under-19 triangular series held in Pretoria. But captain Wayne Parnell is an all-rounder with strong leadership qualities and there is plenty of talent in the squad.

The host from two years ago, Sri Lanka will be hoping its talented slow left-armer Sachith Pathirana can recapture the form that netted him 15 wickets in SL’s 3-2 series defeat against Bangladesh last year.

Other key players for Sri Lanka will be first-class batsman Ashan Priyanjan, who made an impressive 30 not out against England’s senior team last October, and Tissara Perrera, a veteran of the previous U/19 CWC.

For the West Indies, much responsibility will lie on the shoulders of captain Sharmarh Brooks, who participated in the 2006 edition of this tournament, and is a well-regarded all-round cricketer.

Adrian Barath is considered to be the best under-19 batsman in the Caribbean at present, having scored 485 runs at 53.88 in his six first-class appearances for Trinidad and Tobago, and is also valued for his fielding skills. Devon Thomas is also one to watch while Darren Bravo, the brother of Dwayne, is also named in the squad.

Europe qualifier Ireland will be trying to emulate the senior team, who turned more than a few heads at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 in the West Indies. Taking part in his third U/19 CWC captain Greg Thompson has played eight first-class matches taking 13 wickets with his probing leg-spin and is a useful lower middle-order batsman.

Big things are also expected of Dublin batsmen Andrew Balbirnie and Graham McDonnell while Richard Keaveney, in his second U/19 CWC, is a hard-working medium-pacer with a big future.

Playing in its first ever U/19 CWC, Americas regional qualifier Bermuda can boast the presence of Malachi Jones, who took the wicket of India opener Robin Uthappa in Port of Spain during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007. And in Stefan Kelly, Tamauri Tucker and captain Rodney Trott it has other players who have already started their first-class careers with the senior team.

Former coach of the Bangladesh senior team Dav Whatmore will lead India, former Test batsman Larry Gomes will coach the West Indies, another West Indies star Phil Simmons is now with Ireland while Andy Pick, who coached Canada at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007, will lead England.

All these teams are quite good, so BD will really have to outperform if they want to reach the semi final. England showed that they can beat the Asian teams. SL is really trying to improve, they do not want to have losses all the time.
Anyhow, the boys will be playing more matches soon against WI, seems Nepal is no match for them.

On the 28 Jan, Sl U19 beat England U19 very convincingly.

Let's see what the cubs can do against the Windians. Heard that they are a very aggressive team. Likes to go for the big shots because in the West Indies, a lot of 20/20 matches are played.

The England U-19 team lost to Pak U-19. This time by 7 wickets. BA Godleman (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/srilanka/content/current/player/13983.html) hit another century though. He should be the target facing the Eng team. Look at the Pak U-19 openers Strikerate.

Bangladesh U19 should win at least 2 matches in Group D. This will set them up nicely for the next round.

This will be a stiff competition and should be exciting, but it is a fairer competition than the World Cup.

Looking at the groupings for the opening matches, I feel that Pakistan, India and Australia will win all their matches against the teams they are playing. I am hoping that in Group D, BD wins all their matches too.
e.g. playing against Bermuda and Ireland, dont know about England, but SL did beat them recently.

i really doubt an all-win prospect for BD
They have downed all their opponents sans india alright, but in every series they managed to put up at least one below-par show.

In Malaysia, they lost 01 match
agt Nepal, they collapsed while chasing a paltry 110
agt WI, they failed to chase down a smallish total
in Pak, it took them 02 matches to get going
agt SL, they gifted the last match after winning the series rather easily
agt ind, in the last group match in SAF, they again faltered when everything looked well under control

there are a lot of good signs-no denying about that.
but those black patches prevents me from dreaming big

Playing Pakistan in the final warm-up game is the best thing to gauge one's position. If we win our moral would be very high. If not, no problem. They are the defending champs after all and would only even out the head to head matchup. We were the team to beat Pakistan in the last WC and qualify as the group champs.

Let Eng and NZ taste some of the curry the Indian team is dishing around for the past two years.

Thats what I love about the US, they take their sports so seriously at high school/college level, do you know how crappy highschool cricket/football is in the UK.

Can anybody tell me what happened to Marshall Ayub.
BD team has, apparently, flown to Kuala Lumpur without him.

Was Marshall Ayub dropped because of lack of form, or did he get injured ?

Now, somebody please tell us something about Ashraful Hossain. How could they leave out teenage prodigy Ariful Haque and Iftekhar Nayeem?

Did some one try to teach Faruq Hossain a lesson by leaving out Nayeem? Possible, very much possible!!

There are 7 officials in the team
Team Manager: G. S. Hassan Chowdhury
Operations Manager: E. S. M. Ashfaq – ul - Islam
Head Coach: Nazmul Abedeen
Assistant Coach: Minhajul Abedin Nannu
Fielding Coach: Md. Emdadul Hoq
Fitness Trainer: Tusher Kanti Howlader
Physio: Azmal Ahmed Mithu
Computer Analyst: Mohammad Salauddin

Only one batting coach not two.
What's the difference between trainer, Physio and Fielding Coach? I think from this group at least one extra is going...

i don't know which one you've missed, but all the reports say, 08 officials are flying to Malaysia with our 15 member cricket team.

Under-19 World Cup, 2007-08
Shuvo eyes silverware in Malyasia
9 February 2008
Bangladesh U-19 cricket team has left Dhaka today to participate in the 16 nation U-19 world cup to be held in Malaysia from 17 February to 2 March 2008. Bangladesh is seeded 5th in the tournament and is placed in group D along with England, Bermuda and Ireland.
Bangladesh captain Sohrawardy Shuvo wants to end the wait for the world cup trophy with some solid team performances and return home with the silverware.


I do wish all the very best to our team but i don't see any realistic chance for this team to go all the way. Why? answers follow:
1) No special talent:
Previous team had players like Tamim & Shakib who could single-handedly demolish any opponent. It had Mushfiq & Mehrab Jr who used to play the role of finishers, Sohrawardy could enjoy able support from the likes of Nabil Samad, Mehrab jr & Shakib.
This team has no special talent. the support that Sohrawardy gets from fellow spinners (SPIN is the only meansby which we can dominate others) is far less than he used to get in 2006. thus he has to handle extra pressure in all matches.
2) Fear of Exhaustion:
They have been playing and travelling a lot. There was hardly any time to take rest. There lies the fear of exhaustion (pray it won't materialize)
3) Batting:
Till the last moment, the team failed to wipe out its batting weaknesses that begins with opening. only Mithun has established himself at the top. Ashraful has been tried in the last few games with virtually zero success. a lot will depend on Nadimuddin & Mahmudul hasan - the only 02 who looks a bit more consistent. A world cup win with so weak batting would surely be a miracle.
4) India in QF:
God forbid, if we have to face India (assuming that BD would progress to the next round), i don't see our team going any further-plain and simple. we have met india in 05 matches and failed to come up even with a fight.

Yes. this team is good with good team spirit and a potent pace attack... but they are not excellent.

I still feel that in spite of the gloom and doom of the above post, BDU19 will progress very well. they have to concentrate on winning 2 games in the opening round, and depending on who they meet in the second round, as long as it is not India, they can advance again. Let us just wish them luck, they have performed very well recently.

This is a very strong UNDER-19 team, IMO only India can challenge us.

But this Under-19 batting line up can disintegrate on any given day. Lose a key match and its all over.

So down to luck when we need to win.

The most important thing in Cricket is Luck ! If you don't have luck, you will get nowhere with pure talent ! For example, no matter how good you bowl, if the batsman doesn't make a mistake, you are not going to get a wicket ! On the other hand, a part-timer may get a wicket, because the batsman might try his luck against him ! Same goes for our U-19 team, if we loose key matches like we did in the 2006 version against England, we will get nowhere !

i thought that our 2006 squad (with tamim, mushy, sakib, mehrab) was stronger. damn that england match!

india as always is 3 cuts above everyone else. i am expecting a bangladesh-india final and realistically india will probably maul us. but i hope we can pull off a pakistan-like performance! if they could beat 2006 india, we can whip em.

I think we can agree than Tamim Iqbal is pretty much the best under-19 batsman in the world

I agree here. This young guy has a lot of guts and talent and he can only improve. I was very impressed with him when he said that he cried that he missed his maiden test century, that shows that he is thinking all the time. he was the best performer in the NZ tour. I hope that his injury gets better that at least he can play in the ODIs. I doubt whether he will be ready for the Tests, he needs another 2 weeks to heal properly, so the first test is definitely out.

It is amazing that everyone was writing him off after the 20/20 world cup, but he has shown grit and determination to improve and perform. I wish some of the other batsmen can do do this.

Cricket: Australians score double
5:00AM Monday February 11, 2008

Cricket: Patel, NZ, back on a roll
Cricket: India leapfrog Australia after Melbourne win
New Zealand's under-19 cricket team were beaten in their two practice matches by Australia under-19 en route to this month's youth World Cup in Malaysia.

The first of the two games in Brisbane was one-sided.

Australia made 237 for seven in 40 overs, with two wickets apiece for Canterbury's Corey Anderson and Anurag Verma from Northern Districts.

New Zealand were dismissed for just 71, of which Otago's Michael Bracewell, nephew of national coach John Bracewell, hit 47.

The second game was closer, Australia winning by 27 runs, after making 263. Again Verma, with two for 31 from nine overs, was the pick of the attack.

Bracewell, with another 47, and Wellington's Harry Boam, with 37, were the pick of the batsmen.

Tim Southee, who impressed for the Black Caps in last week's Twenty20s, will join the under-19 team in Malaysia.

New Zealand have warm-up games against India and Ireland this week before the tournament starts next Sunday.

Hmm - I suspect a brown spinner might make the aussie team eventually. I don't fancy the others. They - aussies - play a power game which the subcontinental body (genetics + diet) doesn't seem to be suited for.

</TD></TR><TR><TD colSpan=2></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>England and India got their Under-19 World Cup campaigns off to winning starts in the first round of warm-up matches before the competition proper gets underway on Sunday.
Pakistan, who won the two most recent World Cups, lost to England by four wickets. They struggled to 217 for 6 in their 50 overs but seemed on course for victory as England slid to 166 for 6, only for Ben Brown (25*) and Liam Dawson (25*) put on a match-winning 52 for the seventh wicket. Umar Amin was Pakistan's top scorer with 67 off 129 balls and included four fours, while Umar Mir (34*), Shan Masood (28) and Usman Salahuddin (22) all chipped in. For England, 6ft 8in fast bowler Steven Finn quickly established himself as a player to watch with 2 for 23 while Dan Redfern bagged 2 for 22. Billy Godleman (61) and James Taylor (52) made sure that England got off to a winning start when they featured in a 110-run opening stand, but England then lost six wickets for 56 before their late rally.
India were given a real run for their money by New Zealand despite posting a formidable 281 for 9. Shreevats Goswami hit a flawless 91 from 101 balls with seven fours and two sixes, while Ravindra Jadeja slamming a quick-fire 71 with five fours and two sixes. Nicholas Beard and Tim Soothee, who made his international debut in a Twenty20 match against England last week, shared six wickets between them. New Zealand slipped to 57 for 3 but George Worker (69) and Corey Anderson featured in a 115-run fourth wicket partnership while Fraser Colson and Anurag Verma added 66 runs for the ninth wicket as they finished six runs short. Fast bowler Pradeep Sanghwan bowled with a lot of fire and venom to return figures of 4 for 52 while Einstein Napolean bowled intelligently for his 2 for 41.
In other matches, Bangladesh thrashed hosts Malaysia by 165 runs. Mohammad Mithun led the line as Bangladesh scored 270 for 8, and then there were three wickets each for Rubel Hossain and Suhrawadi Shuvo as Malaysia limped to 105. An upset looked on the cards after Ireland slumped to 126 for 6 chasing Papua New Guinea's 180 but they were rescued by James Hall who finished with an undefeated 70.

Dav is now the coach of a an U-19 team, I wonder how much he likes his job, may be a lot better than his last one since they are the strongest at their level. If I got a chance, I would've asked how he rates this U-19 team compare to BD team that he coached. Not important....but interesting.

Bangladesh U19 Vs Pakistan U19
Bangladesh U19 203</B> Over - 48.5 (Md. Mithun 75, Mahmudul Hasan 27, Ashiqul 23; Raza 3/27, Amir 2/33)

I think this lose will do more good than harm.
Sometimes when you win matches in a row, its very easy to get complacent and get hold up when it really matters.

Remember 2006? we were winning everything....and just when English captain hoped we underestimated them, which we did, and lost the match.

This lose will help the boys to get a timely reality check and regroup themselves right before the start of the tournament.

I am actually happy that they lost.

Catch them young (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/magazine/content/story/335704.html). It's good reading and full of stats. The stat will show why we are doing so poorly in test and one day cricket. The three BD players mentioned there, except for Enamul Jr., are not in the senior team. Virtually, we are not getting our investment's worth from U-19. Perhaps this will change as I see some promises in the current squad.

Too quick to conclude I must say.

The stats only says who played over 124 ODIs and 46 tests (cut off). Our entire nations total is almost that. Give it a time. Names will come. Ash da ful, Mash the press, Raz the wizzard, Fees the power, Mim the destroyer of Munaf Patel.

Among stronger test teams, good performance in U-19 does not automatically result in senior cap. Despite doing very well in U-19 world cup, many such players may struggle to make their mark in senior cricket.

Good examples are Shikhar Dhawan and Cheteshwar Pujara- the most successful batsmen in the previous two world cups. They are doing well in domestic cricket, but breaking into the senior team is still far off for them. If and when they finally break into the senior team, they will be prepared for that because they will have competed and beaten back the challenge of some great names in domestic cricket.

Seems that West Indies and Sri lanka are performing very well. Ireland and Bermuda has been beaten in their 2 warm up matches by teams that BD has beaten. BD has to concentrate more on England in their first group match. If they perform well, they should have no trouble beating ireland and Bermuda.

Hmm, no Asian players in the English squad from the looks of it. No new Nasser Hussein in the horizon I suppose.

Adil Rashid would've been in the squad...but he's with our A team in India.

Our U17 team played Australia this summer & there were a few Asian players in that team. Azeem Rafiq was one & he bowls quite a good doosra. Quite excited about that team...and the next WC actually.

Godleman as has been mentioned is our best batter. Get him out early and England will probably fold. Wakely, Northeast & Redfern are supposed to be decent as well.

Harris & Finn are our best bowlers. Meaker is quite good as well apparently. Without Rashid our spinners are typically English sadly...

Doubt we'll beat you this time.

whatever happens on 22nd february (BD vs ENG & IND vs WI) BD's qf match is going to take place on 24th Feb. indians are in pretty good form. but we must forget about the opposition at this point.
nice to see batsmen like Ashraful, Ashiq & Nasir getting runs apart from usually reliable contributors like Mithun, Mintu & Mahmud. Rony is due for some good scores as well.
Dollar & Rubel are wasting too many deliveries. But against non-subcontinent teams SPIN should be our main focus. Mahmud, Nasir & Captain all are in good form.

Beating England may be a better deal for us cause frankly, India is the strongest (aside from Bangladesh off course) team in U19 levels and a match-up this early can't be good for either team. Plus, our spinners may not get the same benefit against India as they would against others.

Tigers_eye
February 21, 2008, 11:16 AM
Even if India loses against WI they will top their table cause they already have a huge NRR advantage over SA and WI. The only issue will come to play will be who will qualify as a second team from that group. WI has the advantage of SA in NRR. So WI move on if they beat India, less SA will be in the QFs.

For BD, they must win tonight and be the group champion. Revenge!! Goldeman is the dangerman. I think Finn can be handled by our batters. Take care of these two and we will be fine inshallah.

For England, total opposite. 40/1 with 40 overs remaining to 136/10 in 47.4 overs. 4 runouts.

eng will be eliminated easily by ind
aus has to bite the dust in the hands of the pak
nz may not be able to match sl

what's next?

sf#1 bd vs pak
sf#2 ind vs sl


so from semifinal onwards it might become asian u-19 championship!!!

after the group stage,
asian teams have registered their supremacy in an unprecedented way.

if everything goes accordingly,
saf should succumb agt bd
eng will be eliminated easily by ind
aus has to bite the dust in the hands of the pak
nz may not be able to match sl

what's next?

sf#1 bd vs pak
sf#2 ind vs sl


so from semifinal onwards it might become asian u-19 championship!!!

according to ICC schedule If BD beats SA and ENG Beats India Bd will play ENG in Semis. so Bd will not face Pak in Semis...

By the way, why no match-thread for BD-Eng U-19 match as of yet? Kalpurush is slacking on the job.

West Indies will surely win here.

I hear the thread was created, but now disappeared!!! Will the moderators please look into this? :saint:

As far as I want BD to win over Eng, I would like to see Ind lose with WI. Then India's morale will be low in case we have to fight them in QF. :-D

I did see a match thread. It disappeared. What happened to it?

I called for an investigation and my thought came true after Dr. Z disclose the result of his investigation. He didn't reviled the culprits name but one of the mod deleted THAT thread.

That is what ICC features say.

If we win our QF we can not play SL,NZ, Aus or Pakistan. We will face either Ind or Eng.

bd will play against the winner of pak vs aus match

jisaan
February 22, 2008, 02:34 PM
q-f#1 ind vs eng
q-f#2 bd vs saf
q-f#3 sl vs nz
q-f#4 pak vs aus

now look at the icc fixture:
on 27th feb,
s-f#1 to be played between winner of q-f#1 & q-f#2 (this is a printing mistake by icc)
on 29th feb,
s-f#2 to be played between winner of q-f#2 & q-f#4
now where is the winner of q-f#3????

we can get an idea from the line-up of play off semi finals
it shows,
play off s-f #1 will be played between the losers of qf#1 & q-f #3
play off s-f #2 will be played between the losers of qf# 2 & q-f # 4

therefore it becomes clear that semi final #2 will be played between the winners of q-f 2 (bd vs saf) and q-f #4 (pak vs aus)


SO IT'S NOT INDIA IN THE SEMI FINALS FOR BANGLADESH.

Very interesting outcome of the practice matches.

I feel in Group A- winner- Pakistan
B-winner- India
C- winner- Australia
D -winner- Bangladesh

I did predict that Bangladesh will be the winner in Group D. I dont know if I picked all the winners, but my heart told me that BD will be the winner, but the way they won was awesome. What a team and what a captain who has nerves of steel, for after all, cricket is a mental game. He realized that even though he had to defend a small score, the pressure was on England to score those runs, and the stronger team led by their captain won. I hope they play like this in all their matches.
Beating SA will not be a tall order, they have played them and beaten them already.
They have to concentrate on the next qualifying round, and hope that they do not face India.

I don't like this talking about SF before QF like last tournament. I was reading views of former u-19 captain before this WC and Mushy - the last u-19 captain said: in last wc 2006 they thought about the SF game against Ind before playing Eng in QF and paid the heavy price.....so plz no more SF talking. All I know is we need to beat SA first and then think about SF opponent.Thanks.
