Jamie Overton (http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc-under19-world-cup-2012/content/player/510530.html) Bowling 150kph(avg145+) @ age of 18....His twin brother Craig Overton also playing in the XI :D

R. Topley was bowling 85+ mph too @ age of 18 (http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc-under19-world-cup-2012/content/player/461632.html)..infact he is the most promising you fast bowler out of all..just look at his fc and T20 record already...brilliant for a 18 yrs old kid:clap:

England could have win this cup easily if they had better middle order. They rely too much on DJ Bell-Drummond & BT Foakes, who is the main strenght of their batting and if they fail(just like they did against Aus), it would be very easy for top teams like Ind, Pak, Sa, WI and even US to bundle them below 150.

If fast bowling doesn't get wickets that is of no use. The faster they come in today's dead pitches, the faster those balls go to the boundaries. Signed Tait/Johnson.

Learn from McGrath. Just a slight movement (two to three inches), seam placement, and utilizing the bounce. You'd be having 400 ODI wickets if you remain injury free.

August 12, 2012, 04:03 AM
Ireland U19 109 v England U19 113/3 (36.2/50 ov)
-England U19 won by 7 wickets (with 82 balls remaining)

India U19 166/8 v W Indies U19 167/6 (47.1/50 ov)
-W Indies U19 won by 4 wickets (with 17 balls remaining)

NZ U19 247/9 v Scot U19 208 (46.5/50 ov)
-NZ U19 won by 39 runs



H'lights of the day. WI 19 beaten Ind U19 for the first time in last 24 years. Last time Ind U19 lost to WI under 19 was back in 1988 :wow:

Apparently the longer the format, the more difficult it gets for the Associates at this U19 level. Lack of popularity of cricket compared to other sports in those countries coupled with weak pipelines compared to those of test playing nations, simply add to their woes.

It's hard to tell. But most likely if we play Aus we will probably be on tv. The easiest way to get on TV is to play against India. They are showing India vs. Zim right now.

Yeah we're pretty much guaranteed to play AUS in the QF...India will play Pak and I think PAK will destroy them. Not sure how the groups are organized. But the strongest 4 teams are hard to tell. I think WI and SA might be the two strongest sides in the tourney...with PAK and AUS somewhat behind them. Hopefully we're up there with England at the least.

Our boys better get ready to face a barrage of 90 mph bowling for 30 overs against the Aussies.

NZs batting is their weak point (as usual), I feel somewhat proud? maybe thats not the right word, but i play with a few of these guys from the nz squad in auckland club cricket, Ish Sodhi, Matt Quinn, Cameron Fletcher. Watch out for Ish Sodhi, really good leg spin bowler with a lot of variations, also cam fletcher, future wicket keeper batsmen for nz national side! you heard it here first.

It's based on seeding based on last WC. We didn't rank in the the top 8, and are not seeded. 1 through 8 are distributed two a piece in each group. We fill in the left overs. Hopefully, we will be seeded < 9 for the next WC AND one of the current top 8 that we will have replaced is NOT in our group.

Bhai you are speaking with a lot of bias... bosisto came in pretty much every single game with the score at 40/50-4. He is the only reason Australia are in this final, its called most valuable player for a reason, he has won them(or contributed heavily) every single match. Anamul had 2 match winning knocks whilst Bosisto had 5. Very easy decision for whoever selects MVP.

Indian cricket is really on the right track.
ODI World Champion 2011.
U 19 World Champion 2012.
U 19 Asian Co Champions 2012.

This is what a good system can do.
Out goes the Dravids and the Laxmans, in comes the Kohlis and Chands.
They were never short of great batsmen and seems like the pipeline is working fine.

What a comeback from these two kids !!! 130 unbeaten partnership and that too when they were the last recognized pair and had to score over 5 runs per over.

Congrats to India for winning the U19 WC 2012 !

Damn that was impressive, I thought Chand would have been dismissed ( he was dropped twice though) sometime during the middle overs, but I knew Patel would have been difficult to get rid of because he has good technique. This was also suppose to be India's weaker U-19 team lol.

Congrats India. They got the bragging rights for both world cups. Whatever it is that they are doing seems to be working for them.

Chand was amazing! And I was happy to hear Annamul getting a mention for great performance in the wc.

Congrats to India. They fully deserved the Cup. Gotta give it to them, they are producing some very good talents. Credit to them for building a strong system and nourishing these players well. Chand is going to be a real star for India in the future.

chand is impressive i have to say, and despite india struggling to produce bowlers they certainly have a terrific system for producing batsmen.

i think the 3 batsmen to watch from this tournament are de kock, chand and anamul. 3 future stars.

Babar Azam of Pakistan also looks like a solid prospect.

yeah bosisto did well and he was captain so he is one to watch but the thing about australia is they don't emphasize u19 cricket to much, so just because he did well here doesn't mean he's even guaranteed to be a FC cricketer in australia, in india, BD and other places his peformance would ensure him to make it to that level of cricket but he'll most likely still have to prove himself through grade cricket and state 2nd xi cricket before he gets to the 1st xi state level.

yup... avg 276 is not a joke :wow:

not only that his singular dismissal was via run out...bowler's couldn't get him out! that counts as a half dismissal in my book. so to me he averaged 552!

Wasn't chand dropped 2x against aussies, with at least one being a regulation sitter by the keeper?

At any rate, I think you could also add Bowes and Azam to that list as well. And of course Bosisto.

i only saw highlights so missed some of chands innings but what i saw was him getting dropped by bosisto which was a sitter, the one with the keeper a better keeper would have got but the aussie keeper had no chance, he dived and the ball hit the side of his glove as he was diving, wasn't in the hands at all. still watching his innings i can see what all the hype is about.
