I think at U-19 level apart from the top 2 teams who are really at a level above the rest, the rest are about the same ie on any day , team 9 can beat Team 3.
Also NZ is too far lowly ranked in this and NZ U-19 can easily beat Team 3-10 on any day at their best.
Past World Cup performances, not recent matches between sides. So yes past sides not current sides. NZ haven't done anything at Under 19 level though, even in series against other sides. Bangladesh would be a lot higher if it was on the back of regular matches. But have kind of choked at the World Cup recently.
