    James Shannon is also a decent talent, i reckon he can go far. Paul Stirling is different class in schools cricket here. You can't bowl to the guy, he seems to be able to hit the ball anywhere when he pleases.
    Where's my money?

    Ireland seem to have an outstanding batting line-up for this tournament.

    How does the bowling look to you?

    Chance for Ireland is good!!

    To be honest, Ireland has pretty good chance of making it to the 2nd round.

    They just to beat England or Bangladesh to do so. England could be a much preferable victim. Though the other must win game will be against Bermuda.

    Ireland was beaten by England on previous occation......n......by only 4 runs!! I hope Ireland has more experienced players than the previous terms.

    Probably one of NZ's best U19 sides in awhile I think.

    Kane Williamson, Corey Anderson and Tim Southee are already playing domestic cricket at the ages of 17 and 18. Those are the 3 to watch out for..very very good players.

    The other is Trent Boult, he's ridiculously quick for an 18 year old. Already hits 140 km's..if (and that's a big if) he stays fit..in a few years time he could be the answer for Shane Bond.

    Other than that..a solid side and I think they'll be looking to at least make it past group stage and I'd say anything other than that is a bonus considering how NZ teams before them have performed.

    Trent Boult is a legend. He's got the swing, the pace, the yorker (and what a yorker it is), the fielding and the James Franklin resemblence.

    He just needs some more accuracy, though I've only seen him play once TBF.

    I think we (Bangladesh) have really good chance to win the World Cup, but the selectors selected Dollar Mahmud to play in the 3 day match vs SA for the upcoming tour, he's the best Pace Bowler and is All rounder in ODI cricket. We beat the Windies w/o him not sure about Pakistan tho.

    The only way were gonna win the WC is we have to finish 1st in the group stages no way I wanna play India in the QF, there just too good. If I wanna play them I'd play them in the finals where we might have some confidence going into the match.

    Southee for the kiwis will be the key man to watch.

    Cricket: India leapfrog Australia after Melbourne win
    New Zealand's under-19 cricket team were beaten in their two practice matches by Australia under-19 en route to this month's youth World Cup in Malaysia.

    The first of the two games in Brisbane was one-sided.

    Australia made 237 for seven in 40 overs, with two wickets apiece for Canterbury's Corey Anderson and Anurag Verma from Northern Districts.

    New Zealand were dismissed for just 71, of which Otago's Michael Bracewell, nephew of national coach John Bracewell, hit 47.

    The second game was closer, Australia winning by 27 runs, after making 263. Again Verma, with two for 31 from nine overs, was the pick of the attack.

    Bracewell, with another 47, and Wellington's Harry Boam, with 37, were the pick of the batsmen.

    Tim Southee, who impressed for the Black Caps in last week's Twenty20s, will join the under-19 team in Malaysia.

    New Zealand have warm-up games against India and Ireland this week before the tournament starts next Sunday

    I can only find one result from day 1 of the warm-ups at this stage.

    Bangladesh 270-7 d Malaysia 103

    Malaysia are most likely the weakest side at the tournament, so no surprise there.

    Cricinfo reported that Sangwan bowled with pace and venom. It is good that India have good stocks of youth fast bowlers even after Ishant Sharma, Abu Nechim and Yo Mahesh have left.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.
