*Official* Under 19s Tour of Africa
South African Under 19s will take part in their first tour of CWLand and their first overseas tour since the Youth World Cup in Sri Lanka. A lot of pressure will be the South African, after a disappointing World Cup, where they failed to make it past the group stages.
CW on the other hand will be looking to build on successful series against England and New Zealand in past 12 months. But many supporters also felt that CW have underperformed recently considering the large number of Under 19 players playing FC cricket.
Both side will have a lot to prove in these inaugural 3-match YODI and Youth Test Series.
