    They have been rotated one or two of their main players each game to give their depth a chance to stand up. Also there is that new opener playing against Zimbabwe. Pretty sure his only 18 and can play if not tied up with the national team.

    I think its going to be between India and Pakistan again this Under 19 World Cup.

    Australia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, England,West Indies, NZ and SA are probably a few notches below them...

    That's interesting - Nepal is placed 11th in the ranking, behind SA and NZ, even though Nepal had beaten both of those two teams and had won the plate championship in 2006.

    I am certain this is not based on recent performances or based on the performances of the current teams but probably the previous teams.

    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.

    I doubt Bangladesh are ahead of Pakistan in the current Team performances and I will be very surprised if any team other than India or Pakistan win this World Cup.

    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.

    If it was on recent performances Bangladesh would easierly be in the top 3, you could argue they should be No 1.

    Bangladesh had beaten Pakistan 3-2 in an youth ODI series in Nov-Dec, on Pakistan's own home turfs. How is that Bangladesh are not ahead of Pakistan in the current team performance ?

    Position of Ban & Ind

    Though Bangladesh won the one day series against below teams recently:

    Against Pakistan and SA in away series
    Agianst Srilanka, Nepal and WI in home series

    But they were beaten by India heavily (though they have two close matches against the same team) in the final of a tri-series and the experience and age level is very low of this team. Only few of them have first class experiences.

    On other hand, Pakistan is very experienced side (along with India, who should be at the number one). Most of their players have First class experience. They r talented but inconsistent. One of their openning batsman is playing for the national side right now!!

    Nothing to speak of India, they r beating every side very easily. The only two hardles they might get are against Pakistan and Bangladesh. Most of their players r very compact and have decent record on their first class carrier. They have a coach like Dav Whatmore and atleast 10 quality players who can turn the match for them.

    Again, its funny to predict at this level, any thing can happen. I think one of our member Chaminda, has good knowledge on those teams and his comments r more correct than most of others.

    I dont think Aus have any chance in this WC at Malay condition.

    Nepal is a bit more strong this time than the previous one. They can beat atleast 3 of the top ten side on average matches. ICC's ranking wast fare.

    SA and WI have few wonderfully talented players, but they havent played a lot of matches as a team as others did. Still, the strengths of their sides r not better than Ind, Pak, Ban or Srilanka.

    Newzealand and England is better team than last one, but its true that they have no chance of winning this WC.
