    I wouldn't call it outstanding tbh, it's good at best. They have an excellent batting depth within the team with many of the talented players being batsmen. The bowling is decent, though if anything, the batting is the strength. Greg Thompson, Shane Getkate and Gavin McKenna would be the main threats for me, but I'm unsure as to how they would compare with teams from the same age group. Obviously the win against PNG will be a boost to them, but they still have things to work on if they're going to replicate what the senior side did at the WC in March.
    Where's my money?

    I kind of had that feeling.
    How do you rate Richard Keaveney?

    I'm still confident that this team should rack up 250 plus regularly. But will 250 be enough.

    Never really seen or heard much of him playing. He plays in the Leinster leagues AFAIK. From what i gather, he's a good player for his age, but nothing outstanding.

    Tbh, i doubt that 250 would be a good score for them. That's if they get there. They obviously have the raw talent to get there but it's all about the temperament the players have. Obviously playing here compared to playing in Malaysia will present its different challenges, weather and climate wise and also the wickets. Irish wickets are generally slow and low, so most will have techniques built around that. This, possibly, could present a challange for the batmen, but if they're willing to hang around and get to 220, 250 etc then their technique should improve adapting to the wickets they have in Malaysia.

    Day 2 Warm-ups

    South Africa 107-1 d Namibia 106

    Australia 60-0 d Zimbabwe 57

    West Indies 177-6 d Sri Lanka 174

    Nepal 256-8 d Bermuda 63

    Phew! Bermuda! Nervous times ahead! The Americas qualifying region isn't so strong at junior level comapred to Europe, Asia, East Asia Pacific and Africa.

    Still, to lose by 188 runs to a fellow associate is scary.

    Wow, we massacred the Zimmers. Good to see Phil Hughes in the runs and Steve Smith in the wickets with 5/21. Great figures.

    Dwayne Bravo's brother Daren scored 45 not out and took 2/3 with his medium pace to lead the Windies to victory against SL.

    The Windies rested star batsman Adrian Barath and captain Shamarh Brooks yet they still won, so that is promising.

    Good result for NZ. Usually our U19 sides seem to only just get over the line but they came close against India and they dismissed Ireland easily, so good to see.

    Disappointing from Ireland. Paul Stirling showing his class though with a quick 72. Hopefully this isn't the last of him at the WC.

    72 of 133? Snyman-esque

    Windies won both warm up matches against quality teams comfortably.

    The Aussies crumbled against the spin combo of Brooks and Permaul who have both had FC experience. Are they weak against spin? Certainly looks like it.
