    Australia under 19's whats the go

    Read we picked a australia under 19 side for the tournament,but no sign of any games,whats the story jack.
    Read india under 19's visitting NZ and malaysia and not australia.
    If so why did they pick an aussie under 19 squad if we are going to play no internationals.

    I believe that the Australian Under 19 team only plays every second year, they played last year and so this year is their year off.

    Basically, Cricket Australia are only worried about U/19s when it's a World Cup Year. Same as two years ago, in 2004 when the Championships were in Melbourne, the team is picked purely on whom was the best performed in the carnival, and it's an "honorary side" as such that won't play any games. As opposed to when they pick the squad for the YWC, which is the best team of U/19 players, based on performances outside of the carnival as well as what transpired during the two weeks.

    I'm pretty sure it's mainly a cash issue with Cricket Australia. Because what would have also happened would have been that there would have been selectors looking out for all the kids who are U/18 to ready a training squad up for the WC as was done last time, with camps and games played during the off-season up at the Academy, so they know whom they are picking to take away to the WC.

    Is it the 4 international selectors that pick the squads,isn't brian mcfayden officially still the under 19 coach.
    I know they picked an under 18 squad round september that spent time at the academy for a few weeks,i think they played a few games against a victorian xl.
    Its a shame its gone this way because our under 19 side used to play a series at home and then a series away from home each season,this seems to gone asunder.
    You have to wonder tho our prep going into the next world cup then the asian under 19 teams have a busy under 19 rep schedule,i think india under 19's play 4/5 series a year.
    Cricket Australia has the money i think they just couldn't be bothered which is a waste.
    Do you know the tournament team that was jack heard a few of the players named kumar sarnia was 1,mathew wade,graham stockden,jeff wells,don't know who else was picked in the side.
    The last time we won the world youth cup we had excellent preperation played a lot of games against the aussie academy and state 2nd xl sides.
    Anyway hope we have some good under 18's players coming through would love it if we won the next world youth cup,so many australian under 19 players go on to play state and international cricket anyway.

    Nah, I'm pretty sure that it's separate. Although I know Trevor Hohns used to be the "Chairman", but that was a bit of a stage, because he rarely saw players play at the Championships, I'm pretty sure.

    Nope you won't win the next youth world cup. Next youth world cup will be won by Pakistan or India. It is held in Malaysia 2008.

    Taken from an article on Kumar Sarna.

    At the end of the carnival, he was selected to open for the Australian under-19 team in a five-game series against a visiting Pakistan under-19 team in Brisbane in April and will use the trip to attend the centre of excellence for a week upon the invitation of Cricket Australia.

    The selectors will be looking at this series closely,good to see mcfayden as coach again,and against who we played in the semis too good call,only 3 will be overage for next years world cup so good selection.
    Interesting to see james smith made the team he made his debut for the redbacks last night.
