Most favorite is at the top
India: Probably the best team among all. They beat other teams like SA very easily. They won atleast two tight matches against Ban from very bad possition, showing their strong mentality. Most of their players r good performer at FC lavel. Probably the most talented side along with SA and Pak. Well balanced and strong.
Pakistan: Have good players who performed well at their domestic leagues and beat Sri and Eng easily. Talented as well. But they have problems with their middle orders. Fielding isnt up to the mark as well. But rest of the squad can cover those lacks!! I think they have the most dangerous openning pair on the tournament.
Bangladesh: Surprising team. Another talented team. Beat Pak in Pak 3-2 at a 5 match series, beat Sri on another series by 3-2, beat SA in SA twice, Beat WI under 19 as well. The only lack they have is their in-experience below 17 aged players. Though they have three FC level player. I wont be surprised if they get the cup!!
Austrelia: The most organized and well prepared team. Mentally very strong and technically superb. But, in under 19 level, its not enough to win the cup. The condition will be different for them as well. They wont get the crowd support like other three asian teams avobe. If they can overcome, they can reach the semi-final atleast! Unfortunately, their senior team is my Fav!
I had a bit research on this (as a journalist) and this is the present condition. But, at under 19 lever, u cant predict anything!!
