Some one wrote us off here.
But we went close with india had a bad series vs silanka won 1.
We have talent in nic maddison,todd beaton,mitch marsh,tom triffitt,alistair mcdermott,shane richardson,josh hazelwood,all whom have played first class and/or 2nd xl cricket.
It is a talent side but australia chose to rest a lot of those players against srilanka.
I think we should win our group easily forget who we playing but should be 1 of the 2 who go through.
And are a chance at the semi finals.
i really rate this side and their chances.
Look forwars to when we play bangladesh,will be a grudge match for sure.

30-player U19 squad announced
18 November, 2009

Under-19 Australia team players celebrate a wicket against India earlier in the year.
The Cricket Australia Youth Selection Panel (YSP) today announced the preliminary 30-player squad for the ICC Under-19 World Cup to be held in New Zealand in January 2010.
The 30-player Australia Under-19 squad is:
Sean Abbott (New South Wales)
Phil Adams (Western Australia)
Timothy Armstrong (New South Wales)
Tom Beaton (Western Australia)
Tom Brinsley (South Australia)
Nicholas Buchanan (Queensland)
Jackson Coleman (Victoria)
Adam Coyte (New South Wales)
Travis Dean (Victoria)
Anthony Del Borrello (Western Australia)
Matt Dixon (Western Australia)
Luke Doran (New South Wales)
Benjamin Dougall (South Australia)
Jason Floros (Queensland)
Joel Garrett (South Australia)
Peter Handscomb (Victoria)
Jake Hannan (Queensland)
Josh Hazlewood (New South Wales)
Alexander Keath (Victoria)
Nicolas Maddinson (New South Wales)
Mitchell Marsh (Western Australia)
Alister McDermott (Queensland)
Jordan McLennan (Australian Capital Territory)
Ryan Meyer (Queensland)
Kane Richardson (South Australia)
Andrew Tazelaar (Queensland)
Thomas Triffitt (Tasmania)
Timm Van Der Gugten (New South Wales)
Sam Whiteman (Western Australia)
Adam Zampa (New South Wales)
Commenting on the squad, YSP Chairman Greg Chappell said; “We’ve made three changes to the initial 31-player squad the YSP selected back in February.
“The unlucky players to go out of the squad are South Australian Alex Carey, New South Welshman Angus Robson and Queenslander Michael Johnson.
“After keeping a close eye on recent performances, West Australian Phil Adams and New South Welshman Timm Van Der Gugten have come into the 30-player preliminary squad which has been submitted to the ICC in preparation for January’s World Cup.
“Those three players who have missed out are no doubt disappointed, however this is far from end for these players and I have no doubt we’ll be seeing plenty more from them in years to come.
“We saw Adams competing in last year’s championships and followed his good performances in grade cricket as an impressive all-rounder, while Van Der Gugten is another talented quick from New South Wales who has been in our sights for some time.
“There is now less than two months before we depart for New Zealand so every performance between now and then will be closely monitored.
“All club and state performances will be followed with interest over the coming weeks and we are very confident that by the time we sit down later next month to select the final squad we will have plenty of headaches on the final make-up.
“There’s plenty of exciting talent coming through and developing quickly and I’m looking forward to seeing who really puts their hand up with some standout performances.”
The final Australia Under-19 ICC World Cup squad to go to New Zealand will be named later in December following the CA National Under-19 Championships in Canberra (29 November – 10 December) and the inaugural Futures League Twenty20 in Melbourne (14 – 17 December). The Futures League Twenty20 is a new component of interstate second XI competition (formerly CA Cup).
The ICC Under-19 World will be held in New Zealand from 15 – 30 January 2010. Australia is seeded sixth and sits in Group B with South Africa, Ireland and USA.
Australia Under-19’s first match is against the USA in Queenstown on 16 January. They then play Ireland the following day before finishing the group stage against South Africa on 20 January.

This looks good brokley bro!!

At this stage, at this age level, when they are 17, 18, 19 who pays for their earnings? Do they earn a salary playing in the national U-19 team, right? Do they also play for clubs and earn cash or serious money (enough to live with a decent avg lifestyle)? Or are they paid and sponsored by the schools, colleges that they are going at this age?

Does it even matter what the U-19 team is doing? once they turn 25+ they'll be beating the crap outta the rest of the world anyway

I heard Mitchell Marsh is a good prospect. He is the younger brother of opener Shaun Marsh and the son of Geoff Marsh. Is he the captain of the Oz U19 team?

December 1, 2009, 05:27 PM
Unless they get paid by grade clubs,or on state contracts,probably not paid,probably a club retainer tho.
Yeh mitch marsh captain but did not play last series due to injury,he has had a masterful week in aussie domestic cricket the last week.
A lot of the under 19 cricketers play 2nd xl cricket,2nd tier to first class cricket.
Some maaybe sponsored i am sure cricket australia looks after them but not big money.
Not many ethnic names this time,but maybe someone will emerge at the state under 19 comp which has just started.

Mitchell Marsh, the Western Australia batsman, has been named captain of the Under-19 squad for the World Cup in New Zealand in January 2010. Marsh, who played state cricket at the age of 17, was youngest player to play in Australia's domestic one-day competition and comes from a strong sporting family - his father, Geoff, played 50 Tests for Australia and his brother, Shaun, has played 19 ODIs.

The 15-man squad also includes two other players with fathers who played prominent roles in Australian cricket: Nicholas Buchanan, the son of former national coach John Buchanan, and Alister McDermott, the son of Craig McDermott. Alister McDermott made his first-class debut against the touring West Indians in November and picked up three wickets.

South Australia fast bowler Kane Richardson is the other player with state experience in the squad, having played two List A matches and a Twenty20 game. Josh Hazlewood, the fast bowler from New South Wales, is the only one to have been part of the 2008 World Cup in Malaysia.

"I think we've got a side that will acquit itself well in the competition," Greg Chappell, chairman of the youth selection panel, said. "Obviously we've got a couple of players that have played state cricket this season which stands them in good stead for the competition we're up against in New Zealand.

"The fact that the tournament is being played in New Zealand probably helps us a little bit in terms of providing similar wickets to that of Australia and the strong subcontinent teams maybe slightly disadvantaged by that. The subcontinent teams are always very strong and have some great young talent and if we were playing them in their own conditions I think it would be a very difficult challenge.

"I would expect that we'll get through to the semi-finals, I'd be very disappointed if we didn't make it that far and if you get a bit of luck once you make it there, then anything can happen. I'm confident we'll acquit ourselves pretty well."

Australia are seeded sixth in the tournament and were grouped with South Africa, Ireland and USA, against whom they will play their opening game in Queenstown on January 16.

Squad: Mitchell Marsh (WA/capt), Timothy Armstrong (NSW), Tom Beaton (WA), Nicholas Buchanan (Qld), Jackson Coleman (Vic), Luke Doran (NSW), Benjamin Dougall (SA), Jason Floros (Qld), Josh Hazelwood (NSW), Alexander Keath (Vic), Nicolas Maddinson (NSW), Alister McDermott (Qld), Kane Richardson (SA), Thomas Triffitt (Tas), Adam Zampa (NSW).
