***Official Under 19 World Cup Thread***
OK, so it might be a bit facetious me starting this thread, but still, it's only a bit over two weeks away.
Groups A and B will see one of the stronger sides miss out on qualifying - with Bangladesh's strength at U/19, and Australia's performance at the last WC creating a dogfight between themselves, the Windies and the South Africans. England have done themselves well with the draw, while one would expect India and Sri Lanka to qualify comfortably.
India look like the team to beat, while the rest of the subcontinent sides should be there and about. New Zealand have stayed off the radar, while there should be a few of the supposed "minnows" - read Nepal, especially - who cause a few suprises.
The practice matches on the three preceding days to the Opening Ceremony should provide the best form guide. Till then, in all truth, it's just guesswork.
