    The tri series between Sri Lanka, Pakistan and England just finished with Pakistan winning the final easierly in the end. Pakistan were a bit hit and miss throughout the tournment, but when they needed to step up they did. Most of their wins were pretty comprehensive. Once again showed why they are 2nd favorities for the WC, even without Nasir Jamshed.

    England started off really well beating Pakistan early and out playing Sri Lanka in their first couple games. Thought Sri Lanka found a way to get over the line in those matches. As the series went along England looked to be a bit off the pace as the Pakistan and Sri Lanka started to find combinations a bit better. Looks like they may struggle during the WC, unless they make some major improvements.

    Sri Lanka showed some pretty positive signs as the tournment went along, pushing the Pakistan hard in some games. There does seem to be a fair bit of talent in the squad, with some impressive performances throughout. But with the selection of a lot of 18yo over 19yo they may lack the maturity even that this level in harder games as tournment get deeper. Along with NZ and SA they look like the sides if they get past the group stages could create a upset from top four of India, Pakistan, Australia and Bangladesh.

    No idea but with a lot minor tournments doing on, as well as the fact we are in the middle of the season for most players. I reckon there will only be one warm up per side. Reckon the Aussie will play one or two more grade games.

    IND won every matches and BD won against WI

    Indian under19 won every matches and Bangladesh won against Westindies against 3 match series. But WI managed beat BD in one match in BD. So the current ranking should be:

    1. India
    2. Bangladesh
    3. Pakistan
    4. West Indies
    5. Austrelia
    6. Srilanka
    7. England

    Lets see!!

    Raymond van Schoor, Sean Silver and Dawid Botha from Namibia.

    Personally reckon India have the best youth setup in the world and that's reflacted in their results at u-19 level over the last 2 years.

    However, the best team does not always triumph in a multi team tournament like this.
    India probably had the best side at the 2006 u-19 wc but Pakistan came through on the day.
    Zinedine Zidane is the greatest footballer ever !

    Richard Dickinson - you little beauty !!!!

    I'm not too sure, but I think you would find it hard to argue that this guy has the best name. http://content-aus.cricinfo.com/u19w...er/279540.html
