    2016 Under 19 Cricket World Cup

    ICC announces schedule of ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2016 | ICC U19 Cricket World Cup

    48 matches to be played across eight venues from 27 January to 14 February; ICC to produce live broadcast coverage of 20 matches

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) today announced the schedule of the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2016, which will be held across eight venues in four Bangladesh cities from 27 January to 14 February 2016.

    Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Dhaka and Sylhet will share 48 matches between them during the 19-day tournament, which will open with the match between defending champion South Africa and host Bangladesh at Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS) in Chittagong.

    The tournament will culminate with the final at the iconic Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. All matches will be day fixtures and will start at 0930 local time. The Super League semi-finals and final will have reserve days.

    For the first time in the history of this competition, ICC will produce live broadcast coverage of an unprecedented 20 matches. The matches which will be shown around the world by ICC broadcast partner, Star Sports and its licensees. include four from Chittagong, nine from Mirpur and seven from Fatullah. In the 2014 event in the UAE, Star Sports and its licensees had broadcast 11 matches, while 10 matches each were televised from the 2008, 2010 and 2012 events in Malaysia, New Zealand and Australia respectively. More details on broadcast coverage of the event will be announced in due course.

    This increased broadcast coverage is a clear reflection in the enhanced profile of the event, which is billed as the platform for future stars. This claim can be substantiated by the fact that nine of the 10 current Test captains have previously played in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cups, while Pakistan’s One-Day International captain Azhar Ali participated in the 2002 tournament in New Zealand.

    Announcing the schedule, ICC General Manager – Cricket, Geoff Allardice, said: “The ICC U19 Cricket World Cup an event which provides talented youngsters an early taste of international cricket in a global setting. Countless players have come through this event, and emerged shortly afterwards on to the international arena.

    “It is at this tournament that the players also receive important education on topics such anti-doping and anti-corruption, which provides them a head start on the challenges that lie ahead for professional sportsmen.

    “Bangladesh has staged a number of ICC events in the past and all these have been hugely successful because of the passionate and enthusiastic crowds as well as high quality playing facilities.”

    According to the event format, the 16 sides have been equally divided into four groups of four each, with the top two from each group progressing to the Super League stage and the bottom two to feature in the Plate Championship.

    Apart from the 10 Test playing countries, six Associate and Affiliate Member sides – Afghanistan, Canada, Fiji, Namibia, Nepal and Scotland – will also participate after winning the various regional qualifying events.

    Reflecting on his time at the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2006 in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim, said: “I played in the 2006 event and it prepared me for the international stage. So, when I went to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 the following year, I had a fairly good idea of what to expect.

    “The ICC U19 Cricket World Cup is like a dress rehearsal for the senior level. It is the first stepping stone for every international cricketer. You can actually get a reasonable picture of the future. The genuine articles, the ones that are going to proceed to the next level and beyond can be identified here if you take a good look.”

    Australia the first out of the major nations to pick any sort of squad ?

    Wes Agar, the brother of Australian spinner Ashton Agar, and Clinton Hinchliffe were named in Australia's 21-member squad for the upcoming Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh.

    Wes, a fast bowler, generated good pace and impressed in the Under-19 Championships, taking ten wickets in eight matches, including a five-wicket haul at an average of 22.60. Fellow South Australian Michael Cormack, who topped the wicket charts with 21 scalps at 16.57 was also included.

    Hinchliffe was the leading run-getter in the Under-19 Championships with 446 runs to add to 10 wickets, and eventually reaped the Player-of-the-Series award. Tom O'Donnell, the son of former Australian all-rounder Simon O'Donnell, and Sam Elliott, the son of former Test batsman Matthew Elliot, also found a place in the squad.

    Also named was Newcastle's Jason Sangha, the only cricketer to advance to the Under-19 National Championships from the School Sports Australia Under-15 Championships.

    Cricket Australia's National Talent Manager Greg Chappell believed that the squad had all bases covered in addition to plenty of leadership options.

    "The squad the National Youth Selection Panel has picked is one we believe could win the World Cup," Chappell said.

    "There is a vast array of all-round talent here that can post big scores and restrict opposition teams with the ball and in the field; there is also plenty of leadership within the group."

    The squad will be trimmed to 15 on December 28 as per ICC regulations. Australia, who are placed in Group A alongside India, Nepal, and New Zealand, begin their campaign against India on January 28 in Mirpur.

    Squad: Wes Agar, Michael Cormack, Kyle Gardiner, Jordan Gauci, Brooke Guest, David Grant, Sam Grimwade, Sam Harper, Liam Hatcher, Clint Hinchliffe, Henry Hunt, Caleb Jewell, Jonathan Merlo, Arjun Nair, Tom O'Donnell, Jonte Pattinson, Patrick Page Jnr, Jhye Richardson, Jason Sangha, Ben Taylor, Henry Thornton.
    South Africa pick their squad tomorrow evening.

    Deserved more coverage than it has got. Always great to see that next tier of talent coming through and also good to see when they do make it one day, that you can look on and see how they've developed as players.

    Be keen to see how good the Aussie u-19 squad is. At the moment, you'd have to say the winner is likely to be one of Pakistan, India or Bangladesh.

    No Doran in the Under 19 squad is ITSTL. Guess they want him to develop more in Shield cricket.

    Good to see Hinchliffe staying with cricket.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Tbf, not only are NZ and Australia small cricket markets, but they're also not really "hey bro, come around tonight and we'll watch our U19 cricketers!" countries.

    Nepal, on the other hand, they had a grandstand full of fans travel to Townsville to watch it live.

    Bottom line is India are playing. It is simple market economics - when India play (regardless of the opposition) you are gonna get a massive tv audience.
    Why wouldn't you show that game a s a broadcaster ?

    Well you can occasionally do something that's not market-led obvs.

    This isn't like in the movie the Social Network, where the Indian kids are absolutely mystified as to why the pre-billions Zuckerburg just gave something away as a free download.

    Tony de Zorzi of Gauteng will captain the Coca-Cola South Africa under-19 team that will travel to Bangladesh to defend the country’s ICC U19 World Cup title. The tournament, which will be held across eight venues from 27 January to 14 February 2016 will see the world’s best take one another on for Youth Cricket’s ultimate prize.

    The announcement was made during the gala dinner to close off the annual Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Week which was held in Port Elizabeth this year. CSA congratulated the players selected for the Coca-Cola South Africa under-19 squad.

    “Well done to all the players selected into the U19 World Cup squad. This is a formative start to what can turn out to be a memorable tournament as defending Champions and ultimately a career as a professional cricketer.” commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.

    “It is worth recalling that Kagiso Rabada was the bowling spearhead of our previous campaign and we all know the impressive strides he has made since then to represent the Proteas with distinction.

    “The opportunity is there for you all to begin to live your dreams and to travel in the knowledge that you not only have the CSA Family right behind you but indeed the entire nation.

    “Make yourself and the rest of us proud!”

    Team coach, Lawrence Mahatlane is confident that he has the right squad to win the grand title.

    “It has been a very exciting process,” he said. “We have a lot of players that we have tried out and given a lot of international exposure to. I think the fact that majority of the team has been to Bangladesh already can only serve us in good stead.

    “It’s been tough at times, there are a few young men who will be very disappointed that they will not be going to the World Cup, but I believe that we have picked a really good side, a very well-balanced side that will represent our country well.”

    The squad will assemble at the CSA Cubs Week in Stellenbosch from 4-8 January 2016 and will take part in the tournament as part of their preparation for the World Cup.

    South Africa will play in the opening match against Bangladesh in Chittagong.

    Coca-Cola South Africa U19 World Cup Team
    Tony de Zorzi (Gauteng, capt), Ziyaad Abrahams (Western Province), Dean Foxcroft (Northerns), Dayyaan Galiem (Western Province), Willie Ludick (Northerns), Wandile Makwethu (Gauteng), Conor McKerr (Gauteng), Rivaldo Moonsamy (Northerns), Wiaan Mulder (Gauteng), Luke Philander (Boland), Farhaan Sayanvala (Gauteng), Lutho Sipamla (Eastern Province), Liam Smith (Gauteng), Kyle Verreynne (Western Province) and Sean Whitehead (Free State).


    Management: Lawrence Mahatlane (Head Coach), Victor Mpitsang (Assistant Coach), Riaan Osman (Manager), Kyle Southgate (Analyst), Brett Edwards (Physiotherapist), Sipokazi Sokanyile (Media Liaison).
    In the home & away series v Bangladesh where we were soundly beaten only really batting all-rounders Wiaan Mulder & Dayyaan Galiem were consistent with the bat although Liam Smith came in for the home series & was the leading run scorer. Moonsamy has scored FC runs and did alright on the tour of Bangladesh.

    Sean Whitehead is a talented left-arm spinner & will be a banker for this team. McKerr & Sipamla will probably open the bowling with Galiem and Mulder following & the latter 2 will both bat in top 6.

    17 year-old, Wiaan Mulder, was named player of our u19 cricket week & I reckon him & Galiem are the most exciting aspects of this team.

    Taylor to lead England in ICC U19 World Cup | England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) - The Official Website of the ECB

    George Bartlett - Somerset
    Jack Burnham - Durham
    Mason Crane - Hampshire
    Sam Curran - Surrey
    Ryan Davies - Somerset
    Aneurin Donald - Glamorgan
    George Garton - Sussex
    Ben Green - Somerset
    Max Holden - Middlesex
    Dan Lawrence (Vice Captain) - Essex
    Saqib Mahmood - Lancashire
    Tom Moores - Nottinghamshire
    Brad Taylor (Captain) - Hampshire
    Callum Taylor - Essex
    Jared Warner - Yorkshire

    Sam Curran and Dan Lawrence the two standouts for England most likely. Both already broken into reasonable teams in county cricket. Lawrence was very impressive for the u19s but also played a couple of cracking knocks for Essex last year. Made 87 opening on a green wicket at Derby against Footitt. He seems a) to have a wide range of strokes with decent execution and b) an understanding of how to play in different situations. Rare for someone so young. Curran isn't quick yet (78-80mph) but swings the new ball and is a clever bowler with good variation - and in time the word is he'll bat 6 or 7 in first class cricket. Mason Crane, a leg spinner, has a lot of hype about him. Poor bloke had Harmison calling for him to tour UAE with the full international team. Will need broad shoulders to deal with that kind of pressure. oh and Aneurin Donald can hit a clean ball but he is one of the most ugly batsman I've ever seen.

    Recently finished a tri series with SL and IND in SL where they were comfortably beaten but improved as the tournament went on.



    Looking back on the 2014 tournament and how the English players have done since-

    Joe Clarke has been with the lions this winter and could be on the same path as Joe Root. Seems to be having similar soundbites at least from his coaches i.e. 'Impressive individual' 'quick learner'
    Ben Duckett scored 4 centuries this year for Northants having been promoted to opener. Has loads of talent and looks an amalgam of Eoin Morgan and James Taylor. Small in stature but loves sweeping, punchy drives and difficult to bowl to. Unfortunately he can't keep himself out of trouble. Failed a couple of fitness tests and has a drink driving ban.
    Luke Wood broke in a decent Notts bowling lineup and looks like he could be a very good left arm fast bowler in time. Swings the ball at decent pace and swings the bat like Stuart Broad down the order.
    Matt Fisher of Yorkshire is playing more one day cricket at the moment but that's more a reflection of the strength of Yorkshire's four day bowling. Will probably play a bit of ODI or T20 cricket for England in the next couple of years if he keeps away from injury.
