Adam Milne will still be eligible for this I think, and possibly Matt Henry as well.
Same guy I think, looks way older. 12 lol
in fairness to the12yr old there are few other errors on his profile page so maybe theyalso the year of birth wrong.
Milne or Henry?
Damn. Would have been fun to see Milne bowling 150kph at people his own age.
This was a serious post:
I can't think of a single NZer who will be eligible. When I say that, I mean I can't think of any playing FC cricket, before anyone gets cheeky and suggests their 9 year old cousin falls into the category.

Not a single player from the 2010 World Cup is eligible for New Zealand in this edition, and they haven't played a game since that tournament. I really don't have much hope for this years team.

why would anyone like milne or cummins who has played at senior level and is a regular at the top domestic level want to or be allowed by the respective countries to play in this. For countries this should be about development rather than winning at all costs. workloads are tough enough without adding u19 wc's to the schedule.
with regards to topley. i don't know why he wasn't selected in the recent england u-19 squad but a hunch is that at present he is not a very good one day player. His bowling relies on swing and the white ball is notoriously harder to swing that the red. he's still pretty raw
i can see some of the the english counties not being particularly pleased if they have to release players for this - although the ecb may make them. The only two players in the current squad who are likely to be regulars for their counties next season are bell-drummond(kent) and ball(kent). Personally i think if anyone is a regular at domestic level then they shouldn't leave that for a junior event. The other players are unlikely to be regulars by then and i'm sure the counties will be happy to release them to aid their development.
