View Full Version : ICC Under-19 World Cup 2008

February 9, 2008, 11:55 PM
the ICC under-19 world cup 2008 starts on febuary 17 2008. the 2 week long tournament features 16 countries and will be held at 7 stadiums of three cities in Malayasia

16 teams are divided into 4 groups

A: pakistan, newealand, zimbabwe, malaysia
B: india, papua new guinea, south africa, west indies
C: australia, namibia, srilanka, nepal
D: bangladesh, england, ireland, bermuda

as usual top two teams from each team will qualify for the "quarter finals". but the INTERESTING thing is the bottom two teams will also carry on playing and play for the "9th place play off qurter final". usually the top 8 are said to be playing for the cup and the bottom 8 are playing for the plate.

the winners of the "quarter finals" will play "semi finals" and the winners will play "final". and again the losers of the "quarter finals" are not knocked out. they will play in the "5th place playoff semi finals " and then the "5th place play off final" .

back in the plate group the winners of the " 9th place play off quarter finals" will play "9th place play off semi finals" and the winners will play "9th place play off final". and again the losers of the "9th place play off quarter finals" are not knocked out. they will play in the "13th place playoff semi finals " and then the "13th place play off final" .

so the important aspect is weak teams are not knocked out early from the tournament. all teams get almost the same matches which gives the youngsters lots of chance to show their worth.

Looking forward to a Bangladesh vs India final (India because it's inevitable, Bangladesh for very obvious reasons).

i think bangladesh should qualify for the 2nd round. then if they pass the qurters then its a very well done, otherwise there is still chance for the 5th place play offs

Fully expecting our boys to make it to the Semis, and hoping for a Final, preferably against Pakistan, for some overdue paybacks. The team batting needs to come through for us to have any kind of success. The likes of Mithun, Nadimuddin have to show more consistency with the willow. The bowling dep't has been considerably dependable in the past, and the bowlers are likely to win us more matches than the batsmen.

The only thing that may let us down is our batting. Our bowling is world class as far U-19 teams are concerned !

Good Luck to the boys.
Malaysia's been one lucky ground for us. 10 years ago, we made history and started a new chapter of our cricket. Hopefully the same happens this time around.
Anything less than Semis would be dissapointing.

I think the most important match is against England on group stage.
If we win that match to be the group champion,given we beat Bermuda and Ireland, we are most likely to avoid India in the QF and face SA.

..and by the recent series, i believe we have a good chance to beat SA and our most like opponent in the semis would be Australia ( subject to all going well according to plan).

If we can play our cards right, most likely Bangladesh-India final.

This seems to be a much fairer competition than the World Cup, cause even the weaker teams can play a few more games. There is no reason why BD cant win all their matches in the opening round., they have never played any of these teams before.

February 11, 2008, 01:14 AM
if dollar is playing the u-19s then why he is in the RESERVES for SA's tour ???

I couldn't figure it out either ! Maybe because of the fact that the U-19 world cup will be over in 2 weeks time so after he returns from Malaysia, he could still play if needed ! Which is highly unlikely though ! Or maybe they have a plan to include him against Ireland, so they want to set the international tone from now !

Bangladesh U19 Vs Malaysia U19
Bangladesh U19 270/7 Over - 50 (Md. Mithun 81, Nasir 36, Mahmudul Hasan 31, Saikat 26)
Malaysia U19 103 Over - 39.4 (Sohrawardi 3/24, Nasir 3/23, Kibriya, Shubhashish and Hasan 1wkt each)
First warm-up match of ICC U19 CWC 2008 at Royal Military Academy Ground (11 Feb. 08); Toss - BD U19; Result - BD U19 won by 167 runs; Next Warm-up v Pakistan on 13 Feb. 08

The last U-19 team was way better this this one, because in the last team there were alot of players who could single handedly win the match for you. Tamim, Sakib, Mushfiq were all there and they are all in the National team now. That tells you how strong the 2006 team was. Had it not been for a single bad game against England, we could have won the Final instead of Pakistan and thats a fact everybody would agree with.

The last world cup U19s may have had some classy individuals, but it's too soon to say that the current side is inferior. Who know, the likes of Roy, and shuvo could be playing for the senior side within a year or so (dollar mahmud seems to be homing in on a call up already). Also, this team could be betetr as a unit than the last side.

And that's the key to success, not just individual players of great ability but a great team, where everyone contributes...

Ok thanks for the info!

Seems like Bangladesh will be strong again.

Malaysia I think might be a little fragile at this level but the experience will do their players a lot of good.

Of the other associate teams, Namibia, Ireland and Nepal have strong sides for this tournament.

Papua New Guinea have a very good bowling line-up but are a little bit suspect in batting.

Bermuda will most probably fight out last place with Malaysia.

I hope so too.
They just barely beat Papua New Guinea.

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.
http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/u19wc2008/content/story/336101.html

Pak lost to Eng. (4 wickets)
Ind barely beat NZ (by 6 runs, after posting 281/9)

February 11, 2008, 10:26 AM
These practice matches dont mean much, but it shows that Pakistan probably underestimated England. It was expected that BD beat malaysia, India beat NZ and Ireland beat Papua. It is the real matches that count, and BD should coast very comfortably in the first group. England is a group to be reckoned with, especially how they have beaten defending champions Pakistan. I hope that the cubs have taken note of what is happening in these practise games. They should try to beat Pakistan in the next warm up game, this will give their confidence a great boost.

Now england beating pakistan is a real concern for us! England seems like a good unit! But we should be confident as we beat pakistan as well

Ben Stinga
February 11, 2008, 10:56 AM
The PNG side is very strong in bowling.

Pace bowlers Willie Gavera, Loa Nou and Jacob Mado were selected for training at Cricket Australia's Centre of Excellence in 2007, as was off spinner Colin Amini, whose favourite cricketer is Murali. Young brother Charles Amini is a 15 year old leg break bowler who shows tremendous promise.

So, yeah, I wouldn't be underestimating them.

Ireland did well to win actually. They have a really strong group of promising batsmen and they bat a long way down.

A top 4 finish for Bangladesh at least in this tournament I think.

If we are rated No. 5, what are the 4 teams ahead of us? and in what order?

I know India is one of them, but don"t tell me PAK and SL are ahead of us too. Cuz we just beat both of them recently.

Tigers_eye
February 11, 2008, 12:58 PM
Pak 1, Ind 2, Aus 3, Eng 4, SL 6, WI 7, Zim 8, NZ 9, SA 10, Nepal 11, Ireland 12. This rating is done after the WC of 2006.

Now england beating pakistan is a real concern for us! England seems like a good unit! But we should be confident as we beat pakistan as well

If england beating pakistan once in a mere warm-up match has to be a real concern for us, then bangladesh beating pak in pak 03 times in a row should be more scarry to the english.

BD should not be complacent here, especially in their group match. They have never played any of these teams except Pakistan, everyone is looking to advance to second round with 2 wins under their belt.

jisaan
February 11, 2008, 02:01 PM
These practice matches dont mean much, but it shows that Pakistan probably underestimated England. It was expected that BD beat malaysia, India beat NZ and Ireland beat Papua. It is the real matches that count, and BD should coast very comfortably in the first group. England is a group to be reckoned with, especially how they have beaten defending champions Pakistan. I hope that the cubs have taken note of what is happening in these practise games. They should try to beat Pakistan in the next warm up game, this will give their confidence a great boost.

beating pakistan will be good but our main focus should be to save the best for the main tournament.

Current/Forthcoming Tours

Under-19 World Cup, 2007-08
Bangladesh trounce Malaysia in warm up match
11 February 2008
Bangladesh made a perfect start in their U-19 world cup preparation in Malaysia as they comfortably defeated the hosts by 167 runs in the first warm-up match at the Royal Military Academy Ground on Monday.
After winning the toss, Bangladesh opted to bat first and posted a commanding 270-8 in stipulated 50 overs with the help of a blazing 81 by opener Mithun Ali.

He got 3 wickets in the match..

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

Bangladesh skipper Sohrawardi Shuvo bagged 3 wickets for 23 runs, Nasir Hossain picked 3 wickets for 20 runs while Kibriya, Shubhashish and Hasan took one wicket each.

Rubel didn't get any wicket today.

Thanks Miraz bhai for the clarification. Seems like CI reporter didn't get enough sleep last night..:D

Its good to see the offspinners doing well. Nasir Hossain & Mahmudul Hasan are really good prospect for future. They are very consistent in both batting and bowling. True allrounders in making....

I was sick of seeing too many left armers in the last u-19 wc team. but fortunately we've only one this time.

Hope both Nasir & Hasan do well in the real wc matches.

And also hope Rubel Mia gets some wickets as welll.

Thanks for the welcome! I think Shuvo has a very good cricket mind. He is quite experienced for someone so young but we must allow him time to develop without putting too much pressure on him as captain. This means he must learn from some mistakes. This is how you truly learn in my opinion. There is much talent in this years' squad. It is very pleasing to see them develop. I will continue to follow their progress. They are in good hands with Nazmul Abedin Fahim as coach.

If something comes out from your mouth our younger generations may take them more seriously. Understanding the game of cricket would be much easier.

Ziaur Rahman, I believe, also worked under you for a while. What do you think of him ?

I believe Dollar has great potential and will one day play for his country. He has a very sound action technically and has good pace (130km+) for his age. He is a very hard trainer and is disciplined and dedicated to his work. He is an exciting prospect. Shuvashish has natural pace and is very tall. I would like to see him develop his strength more and his aerobic capacity. But i believe he has the talent to play for BD some day. I have not seen a lot of Rubel but i here he is also a hard worker and very talented too. I ahd Ziaur at the academy and he too has a lot of ability. I like the fact that he can swing the ball and he has good control. He is a very hard worker on the training track and is always making jokes which is good for the atmosphere around the squad. We must continue to give these young guys our support as bowling fast on the sub continent is a tough job with the extreme heat and flat pitches.
Hope this gives you a picture of what these guys are like

I would love to return to BD one day if the opportunity presents itself. But at the moment i am busy with our team and following the young BD players closely.

I am confident that our boys will make the final four. We should have made it in 2006 but we played poorly against England in the QF. The competition will be tough this year but we have prepared well so there is no reason why BD cant make it. If they do then anything can happen in the semis. It will come down to who makes the least mistakes and stays mentally tougher for longer.

well the important one is the game vs ENGLAND on 22nd FEB. hope we will get into that match with two wins over bermuda and ireland.

and by that time all our players will be firing all cylinders

The middle order has been weakened by Marshall Ayub's withdrawal but hopefully they would be able to reorganize the middle order in the next two matches against Bermuda and Ireland.

Beating England would be crucial as otherwise we would most probably face India in the QFs.

It will take more practice, genuine talent (god gifted), hard work and good luck for us to topple established teams with half a centuries of cricket infrastructure. We should count our blessings and continue to push these guys for exceeding goals in the future. Our association with Australian cricket was a good investment. Earlier account with Indian/Pakistani coaches did not show any real improvement for years.
Aussie management is A plus.

I dont recall ever having Indian or Pakistani coaches for the age group teams. Unless you are referring to Carlos from Srilanka who is still with BCB, we always had Australian or local coaches for our age groups. And i think in some cases, there should be a variety. Aussie coaches are great no doubt but its not like Aussie U19 teams are world champions all the time,, rather its the Indians/Pakistanis that dominates the age group competitions..

AsifTheManRahman
February 13, 2008, 07:33 PM
We must continue to give these young guys our support as bowling fast on the sub continent is a tough job with the extreme heat and flat pitches.


I think this is something that we really don't do all that often. In recent times, our pacers have actually given us more than we could ask for in that regard. I'd imagine it's a tough job growing up and playing in conditions that don't suit your style of play whatsoever, and yet be expected to perform well against international teams. More so for our bowlers because we don't date too far back as far as professional cricket is concerned.

Oh comeon now ! To constantly defend 200 runs at any level, you need bowlers such as Brett Lee, McGrath, Wasim, Murali ! And even if you have those sort of players there are chances that you would loose. There is no place for a total of 200 in modern day cricket !

Marshall Ayub has been withdrawn because of being over aged. With all the testing to be done by ICC to get the real age of players, it was a wise decision by BCB to withdraw him as otherwise he would have been banned.

I am back in Australia. I am the Assistant Coach of the Tasmanian Tigers (Ricky Pontings first class team) and Pace Bowling Coach. I have enjoyed being home but miss the players in BD very much. I would love to return to BD one day if the opportunity presents itself. But at the moment i am busy with our team and following the young BD players closely. I am expecting big futures from many of the academy players that i coached. They are a mentally tough bunch of boys and will be fine players for their country one day.

Thanks a lot Mr. de WinterA for sharing your feelings and views with us. You might agree with me that the weakest department of the previous U-19 team of 2006 is the strongest department of the current team. Yes, i'[m talking of the pacers.

we are really excited about the prospect of our U-19 team pacers - Dollar Mahmud, Shubhashis Roy, Rubel Hossain & Golam Kibriya.

Please give us some information about them like:
1) Pace (speed)
2) Height
3) Prospect

Being a pace bowling coach for Tasmanian Tigers would make your comments even more valuable.

Dude,, I think that question should be asked to Fahim than Allistar. Cause, things have changed since he moved to Australia and I think those lads may have grown an inch, bowls a yard faster or slower...
Nevertheless, I agree that we have the best pace department this time.. I wish I could say the same thing about the batting though,, which I think has always been our worries. I think had India-Bangladesh played toghether as a team,,, it would have been a devastating champion team. Irrelevant comment, I know.

There are people who feel that Steve Finn of England will be the pacer to look forward to in this U-19 world cup.

If performance against better batsmen (than U-19 batsmen) is a criterion, I feel Pradeep Sangwan of India is the one to look forward to. In Indian domestic cricket, he plays for Delhi and takes the new ball alongwith Ishant Sharma and Ashish Nehra. He bowled Delhi to Ranji trophy title win earlier this season taking 9 wickets in the final. He took 33 wickets in 7 matches in the Ranji tournament.

Ehsen, I don't think he's being that complacent. He was, for instance, being critical, identifying aspects of the game that he wanted to improve for the next match (with the comment about the pace bowlers). And he had to sound confident, which he did. Cricket is a psychological game, and it's perfectly reasonable for him to be dismissive of Bermuda, and sound confident of winning the next set of matches against the other teams. You don't want him to sound like, "Oh, by the grace of God, we somehow managed to eke out a victory. Let us see what the future holds."

I think thats a surprising way of looking at it. I think we should be talking more about what he did say, than what he could have said. It didnt make him come off particularly sportsmanly. As a matter of fact, I thought he was downright cocky. I wouldn't hold it against him though. He might just have had trouble expressing himself...

Ehsen, I don't think he's being that complacent. He was, for instance, being critical, identifying aspects of the game that he wanted to improve for the next match (with the comment about the pace bowlers). And he had to sound confident, which he did. Cricket is a psychological game, and it's perfectly reasonable for him to be dismissive of Bermuda, and sound confident of winning the next set of matches against the other teams. You don't want him to sound like, "Oh, by the grace of God, we somehow managed to eke out a victory. Let us see what the future holds."

I too didn't think he was complacent. He said things the way they are. :)

Farhad, exactly which parts of his interview did you have issues with? Not praising Bermuda for a well-played game? We were expected to trounce them and we did, which is largely what Shuvo said; I don't think that's necessarily denigrating them. Yes, I suppose he could have said something along the lines of "Well, they played well, but we were the superior team." But given the brevity of the interview, Shuvo's age, the fact that English is a second language for him, and that he is trained primarily as a cricketer, not a diplomat, I think he handled himself quite well. When asked if he expected to win the next set of matches, he said he did. What would you rather have him say? That they'll all be tough matches? He knows some of them will, but what's wrong in projecting an aura of confidence and trying to rattle some of the opponents?

upset on the cards?
nepal knocked over australia for 206.

im not all that impressed by the Aussies I have to say. Take away that whirlwind knock from Hill and they weren't overly impressive against namibia. they should have got 400+ really, they were 2-195 after 23 i think. they only got 312 all out.

There are people who feel that Steve Finn of England will be the pacer to look forward to in this U-19 world cup.

If performance against better batsmen (than U-19 batsmen) is a criterion, I feel Pradeep Sangwan of India is the one to look forward to. In Indian domestic cricket, he plays for Delhi and takes the new ball alongwith Ishant Sharma and Ashish Nehra. He bowled Delhi to Ranji trophy title win earlier this season taking 9 wickets in the final. He took 33 wickets in 7 matches in the Ranji tournament.

You are right,, he took 5 wickets today against the SAs. His average is also exciting and worthy of note--19/per. Seems like India, all in a sudden, have lots of medium pacers in the pipeline that can trouble tougher oppositions.

You may have misunderstood me. If you'd look back, I didn't focus on him denigrating Bermuda (if he even did that). Its the sportsmanship I had an issue with. We all know the truth: that Bangladesh was expected to crush Bermuda...Just like Australia is expected to crush us and pretty much every team they come across. Yet, they dont make comments like that. Since youve asked twice now on what he could have said: you answered your own question. An answer like "we were the better team on that particular day" is exactly what a lot of captains say when faced with that question. I know that might not be the most honest answer, but thats just how the world is. As for the question on what he expected from the next few games:it is also one that is asked often, if not before every game, yet how many times have you heard an answer like Shuvos? I dont think ive even heard an answer that wasnt a long-winded "non-answer" or "we'll take it one step at a time". Like I said in my previous post, I dont hold it against him. I agree with you. He's a cricketer and not a diplomat. If he had a firmer grasp of the language, and was maybe a bit more knowledgable about foreign social proceedings, Im sure he wouldnt have made that comment. Nothing major...

Shuvo's post match (vs Bermuda) interview -

http://cricketarchive.com/av/1/1371.mp3

He sounds bit complacent.

At least, he can speak English much better than Ashraful who would have struggled to find the right words, and would have needed his interpreter.I dont think that he was so complacent, he sounds confident and so he should.

Looks like the contest is between England and BD for winner and runner up.
Ireland IMO will be No3 and Bermuda No 4. What happens if Bd is runner up and play India and gets beaten. What then? Do they continue to play to reach a good placing?

From reading the matches, it seems to me that this is a much better championship than the World Cup.

They have reached the second round as of now, next big test is the match against England.
