    Impressive that he has played FC cricket already.

    Shaw looks delightful. He could quite easily jump the current test batting back-up within a year and may have to get initial chance not opening ? Almost similar to Breetzke for us.

    Kirstan Kallicharan, one to watch out for in the future. Is he related to Alvin? I think Alvin now must be nearly 60 and last time I was in UK he was still playing club cricket and scoring runs too :-)

    Will Jacks, heard a lot about him. Looks like he's based his batting on KP. Not a bad idol I'd say to emulate.

    Typical Kiwi cricketer. No airs about him, just do what is required for the team. Great to see HDCC/HIBS clothing to go with it. Very much a Hutt lad.

    Saif to lead Bangladesh in ICC Under-19 World Cup

    The core of team that made the semifinals of the Asia Cup Under-19 tournament has been retained.

    Saif Hassan, the right-hand opener, will lead a 15-man Bangladesh squad in the ICC Under-19 World Cup to be held in New Zealand next year, the Bangladesh Cricket Board announced on Wednesday. The 16-team event will be held from January 13 to February 3.

    As many as 13 players who featured in the recently concluded Under-19 Asia Cup in Malaysia, where Bangladesh lost to Pakistan in the semifinal, have been named in the line-up that will depart for New Zealand on December 26.

    One of the changes is bringing in Tipu Sultan in place of Shakhawat Hossain in a like for like swap of one left-arm spinner with another. Shakhawat is however among the seven standby players.

    Saif and Pinak Ghosh were also the part of Bangladesh's squad in the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2016, where they reached the semifinals for the first time. The Bangladesh squad features seven batsmen, two wicket-keepers, four pacers and two spinners.

    Damien Wright, the head coach, said that he was satisfied with the 15-man squad selected to do the job for Bangladesh. “I am really confident with the group we have assembled,” he said. “I think we are in a fantastic place (with our batting). So the batting side of things is nowhere near my concern now.”

    Bangladesh will open its campaign against Namibia in Lincoln on January 13, with Canada and England the other two teams in the group.

    Squad: Saif Hassan (capt), Pinak Ghosh, Mohammad Naim, Afif Hossain, Towhid Hridoy, Aminul Islam, Mohammad Rakib, Mahidul Islam Ankon (wk), Shakil Hossain (wk), Robiul Hoque, Nayeem Hasan, Qazi Anik, Roni Hossen, Hasan Mahmud, Tipu Sultan.

    Reserve players: Mohammad Sozib Hossain, Rayan Rafsan Rahman, Shakhawat Hossain, Saidul Islam, Yeasin Arafat, Abdul Halim, Monirul Isam.

    Hasan Khan to lead Pakistan at Under-19 World Cup

    Team to play warm-up games against Australia and New Zealand before tournament kicks off

    The Pakistan Cricket Board have named their squad for the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2018, to be held in New Zealand in January next year.

    Hasan Khan, the left-arm spinner who emerged as one of Quetta Gladiators’ brightest young prospects in last year’s Pakistan Super League, will captain the side. Hasan was also the top-scorer for Pakistan in the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2016 with 293 runs.

    The team will leave for Australia on December 21 after attending a training camp at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore from December 7 to December 20. Before the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2018, it will play a three-match against Australia Under-19s on December 27, 29, and 31 before playing two more 50-over games against New Zealand Under-19s on January 3 and 5. The tournament starts on January 13.

    Pakistan, placed in Group D, will play its first game against Afghanistan Under-19 on January 13; Sri Lanka and Ireland are the other two teams in the same group.

    Squad: Mohsin Khan, Imran Shah, Zaid Alam, Rohail Nazir (wk), Muhammad Taha, Emmad Alam, Ali Zaryab, Saad Khan, Hassan Khan (capt), Musa Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Munir Riaz, Arshad Iqbal, Muhammad Ali, Suleiman Shafqat.

    Reserve players: Muhammad Junaid, Haider Ali, Muhammad Ilyas, Azam Khan, Mukhtar Ahmed.

    Team coach, Lawrence Mahatlane is confident that the selectors have made the right choices and is excited by the collective experience of the team, he said:
    “It’s definitely one of the most exciting times in these kids’ lives and careers and it’s a thoroughly deserved honour that they receive today. This is the culmination of the last 24 months’ hard work and they have certainly put in the hours and effort to be named in this World Cup squad.

    “I’m very excited as a coach to take this group to New Zealand, they are massively talented with the potential for even greater things and I’m confident that we have chosen the combination that will give us the desired results. More than half of the squad have semi-professional cricket experience and we even have a franchise player in Matthew Breetzke. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of the semi-pro coaches who bought into our vision for this team and for allowing these players space in their teams to help them prepare for what’s to come in less than a month now.

    “I’d like to convey my own congratulations to this team of incredible youngsters, who have played a lot of cricket so soon after writing exams, whether at school or university and done so with a lot of focus. We look forward to going the World Cup and making the country proud.”

    Was very good in the recent u19 series in South Africa. Bowls handy off-spin.

    I imagine this is to do with school years in England that they have always allowed this ?

    England Under-19 World Cup squad announced

    Harry Brook of Yorkshire has been appointed captain of a 15-man England squad for the Under-19s World Cup in New Zealand which starts next month.

    The squad includes four players from Middlesex – Savin Perera, Luke Hollman, Ethan Bamber and wicketkeeper Jack Davies; three from Somerset – Tom Lammonby, Fin Trenouth and another wicketkeeper, Tom Banton; and two each from Glamorgan (Prem Sisodiya and Roman Walker) and Worcestershire (Dillon Pennington and Adam Finch).

    Warwickshire opener Liam Banks, Surrey all-rounder Will Jacks and Hampshire all-rounder Tom Scriven complete the 15.

    “The players have shown with their performances in the Tri-Series in South Africa over the last couple of weeks that they can travel with plenty of optimism,” said David Graveney, a member of the Under-19s selection panel with John Abrahams and Jon Lewis, who will be head coach for the World Cup.

    “We have really benefited from the flexibility permitted by selecting a number of over-age players for the Super-4s competition for the country’s outstanding Under-17s this summer, which allowed a couple of Under-18s such as Savin Perera and Fin Trenouth to put in the performances that have led to their selection in the World Cup squad.

    “This is an exciting opportunity for them, and for the rest of the squad – to travel to New Zealand, and to test themselves against the outstanding players from other countries in this age group.

    “It’s also worth congratulating Middlesex, Somerset, Worcestershire and Glamorgan, who contribute the majority of the squad, as a reward for the quality of their Academies.”

    Lewis, the former England seamer who is now assistant coach at Sussex and currently working with the Lions in Australia, said: “I’ve been receiving regular reports of the team’s progress in South Africa from Richard Dawson and the other coaches, and I’m really looking forward to joining the squad ahead of the World Cup.”

    Lewis will be assisted by Jonathan Trott as batting coach, Neil Killeen as fast bowling coach, and Chris Taylor as fielding coach – his last tournament as the ECB’s fielding lead before joining Surrey.

    David Parsons, the ECB’s Performance Director, said: “Thanks are due to Richard Dawson and to James Taylor for the work they have done on what has been a successful and enjoyable Tri-Series in South Africa for the Under-19s, creating a platform for what will hopefully be an even more successful World Cup campaign.

    “Chris Taylor has been a key figure in providing specialist fielding support to the players on the Men’s Pathway and the England team over the past decade and we wish him luck in his new role at Surrey.

    “We will now begin the process of appointing both a new fielding lead and permanent Head Coach to the Young Lions programme and hope to have both in place after the Under 19 World Cup.”
    Squad:

    Harry Brook (18) (Yorkshire, captain)
    Ethan Bamber (19) (Middlesex)
    Liam Banks (18) (Warwickshire)
    Tom Banton (19) (Somerset, wk)
    Jack Davies (18) (Middlesex, wk)
    Adam Finch (17) (Worcestershire)
    Luke Hollman (17) (Middlesex)
    Will Jacks (19) (Surrey)
    Tom Lammonby (17) (Somerset)
    Dillon Pennington (18) (Worcestershire)
    Savin Perera (18) (Middlesex)
    Prem Sisodiya (19) (Glamorgan)
    Tom Scriven (19) (Hampshire)
    Fin Trenouth (19) (Somerset)
    Roman Walker (17) (Glamorgan).

    New Zealand has named a squad brimmed with both talent and experience for the ICC Under19 Cricket World Cup 2018, which is being held in New Zealand from 13 January to 3 February.

    Squad

    Kaylum Boshier (Central Districts) - Captain

    Finn Allen (Auckland)

    Jakob Bhula (Wellington)

    Max Chu (Otago)

    Katene Clarke (Northern Districts)

    Matthew Fisher (Northern Districts)

    Luke Georgeson (Wellington)

    Ben Lockrose (Otago)

    Callum McLachlan (Wellington)

    Felix Murray (Central Districts)

    Sandeep Patel (Northern Districts)

    Dale Phillips (Auckland)

    Rachin Ravindra (Wellington)

    Connor Sullivan (Canterbury)

    Todd Watson (Central Districts)

    Four players from the New Zealand U-19 squad for ICC Under19 Cricket World Cup 2016 in Bangladesh have been named in the team. Finn Allen, Dale Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, and Central District’s Felix Murray will all be featuring in their second ICC Under19 Cricket World Cup.

    Kaylum Boshier will captain the side during the tournament, having impressed the selectors with the way in which he led his Central District’s side during the National U19 Tournament, which wrapped up in Lincoln today.

    New Zealand U-19 Head Coach, Paul Wiseman, was excited for the players selected but was quick to mention it wasn’t the end of the road for the players that weren’t named in the 15-man squad.

    “We’re confident with the side we have selected for the tournament,” said Wiseman. “It will be a great experience for the players involved, but for those not selected there will be other opportunities going forward.

    “Selection or non-selection will not define these youngster’s cricketing careers.”

    The New Zealand U-19 side has a training camp in Tauranga beginning on 17 December 2017, before playing Zimbabwe and Pakistan in non-official warmup matches.

    The final preparation before the global youth tournament will see official warmup matches against Zimbabwe U-19 and Papua New Guinea U-19, on January 8 and 10 respectively.

    Reigning champions West Indies, South Africa and Kenya will form a challenging group for the New Zealand youngsters, who will be attempting to pick up their first ICC Under19 Cricket World Cup title.
