    ICC Under-19 World Cup | New Zealand | Jan 12 - Feb 4, 2018 | Discussion Thread

    The ICC U19 Cricket World 2018 Cup officially got underway in style at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Sunday with an impressive ceremony showcasing New Zealand’s culture.

    The ceremony was attended by representatives of all the 16 participating sides, Christchurch Councillor Aaron Keown, as well as New Zealand Cricket President Debbie Hockley, who, on behalf of the ICC and NZC, welcomed the teams to the tournament.

    The tournament proper gets underway on 13 January with matches spread across seven venues in the cities of Christchurch, Queenstown, Tauranga and Whangarei. The winners will be crowned in Tauranga on 3 February. The teams will get a chance to get into their groove with practice matches in Christchurch from 8-11 January.

    The squads, officials and other spectators present at the event enjoyed the short opening programme, the highlight of which were traditional Maori dances. The cultural event was followed by photo shoots of participating teams in a festive atmosphere that saw the teams mingling with each other.

    New Zealand Cricket President Debbie Hockley: “This event plays an important role in developing its participants into international professionals, teaching them invaluable lessons in camaraderie, discipline, leadership, playing under pressure and, of course, appreciating the spirit of the game.”

    Tournament Director Brendan Bourke: “Never before has an opening event taken place at an ICC U19 Cricket World Cup featuring all 16 teams, so we jumped at the opportunity to create a very special occasion for them.”

    The teams attending the opening ceremony were enthusiastic about the event with the captains looking to make the maximum of the chances that come their way.

    Afghanistan captain Naveen-ul-Haq: “We’re looking forward to the tournament, our team is quite enjoying the conditions here in New Zealand, have been here for over two weeks and we are well prepared for the tournament. It’s a good platform for any player to showcase his talent.”

    Australia captain Jason Sangha: “It’s been good to be in the nets, but we’re ready now to play some time in the middle. I reckon that’s the best part of playing this World Cup, there’s that bit of uncertainty where we don’t really know what to expect. We know New Zealand’s quite cold, the wickets might seam a bit more, but I think we have the batting line-up and the bowling attack to go all the way.”

    Bangladesh captain Mohammad Saif Hassan: “There is amazing atmosphere here, everybody is quite excited. Last year we were third, so we will go for number one. The conditions are tough for us but we are adjusting quite nicely after playing some matches here. We will go match by match.”

    Canada captain Arsalan Khan: “The boys are very enthusiastic and we feel we have a very good chance of competing with the top teams. Our target is to hopefully come on top in our group. The boys are very confident of coming up with this kind of performance on the big stage.”

    England captain Harry Brook: “The team travelled well and have had a good couple of days training. We’re ready for the first warm-up game, and the last few days of training, we are confident for the group stage. We’re here to win it (the tournament).”

    India captain Prithvi Shaw: “We’ve been here a week now, played a couple of games. Everything has gone well, the preparation of the team has been good. Our goal is obviously to win the World Cup but at the same time we are looking forward to our first game (against Australia on 13 January), and let’s see how the process goes.”

    Ireland captain Harry Tector: “We’ve been here a week and are getting used to the conditions. We were up in Auckland and are now looking forward to playing and giving a good account of ourselves. First things first, we’re looking to get out of our group and then see how far we can get in the tournament.”

    Kenya captain Sachin Bhudia: “We’re looking to end as the top Associate side in the tournament. We’re pretty excited, we had good preparations with some good games in Australia that has given the team a lot of confidence for this big tournament.”

    Namibia player Nicole Loftie-Eaton: “We had a good preparation in South Africa where we played a tri-series and got the chance to work on our games. Our team did well last time in this tournament and we also want to reach the top eight and ensure we finish as the top-ranked Associate side in the tournament."

    New Zealand captain Kaylum Boshier: “We are looking forward to playing decent cricket. The best thing in this tournament is you can play the best in the world. It’s a good chance to take a big step forward on the big stage. We’re starting to get the feel (of a big tournament) since the tournament is just a week away. There is pressure but the team that performs under pressure will come out on top.”

    Pakistan captain Hassan Khan: “Our aim is to win the tournament. We have prepared well and hopefully we will perform well and make it three times for Pakistan and catch up with India and Australia (who have won three times each). Most of us are touring New Zealand for the first time but we are adjusting well and have a good chance to express ourselves.”

    PNG captain Vagi Karaho: “The atmosphere is good. It’s quite cold here but we are getting used to it, we’ve to adjust to the conditions. It will be challenging but a big experience for us to know each other. They are big games for us. Every team deserves a win - most of us are first-timers, many are young boys, we want to get more experience and build our cricket team (for the future).”

    South Africa captain Raynard van Tonder: “We arrived yesterday after a long trip but are really excited to be here. It’s a really nice and friendly country, and we’re really excited for the World Cup to start. Obviously our main goal is to win the World Cup, but following the process we’re just going to take it one game at a time.”

    Sri Lanka captain Kamindu Mendis: “We’ve never won the U19 World Cup and we think this (winning the tournament) will be a big boost for cricket back home. Our team is really good, are in good form and we really want to win it this time. We have some new plans and we did the right things in preparations over the past couple of months and have to now just do that in this World Cup.”

    Windies captain Emmanuel Stewart: “This is always a good tournament to take part – this is my second time. Last time was a special occasion for us as we won, so we have to give a good account of ourselves and Caribbean cricket. This tournament sets the foundation for us and is very important for us all.”

    Zimbabwe captain Liam Roche: “I feel excited; I also feel privileged to be here representing my country. I’m looking forward to big competition though we have had lots of competition over the past two years. Here I’m looking for high scoring games, lots of runs, lots of wickets for the boys.”

    Australia and India have both won the tournament three times, Pakistan are the only ones to have won back-to-back titles (in 2004 and 2006) while England, South Africa and the Windies are the other winners of the tournament.

    Pakistan u19 vs Afghanistan u19 | Whangarei | Under 19 World Cup | Jan 13, 2018 | Pre-Match Thread

    Less than 12 hours to go until the boys look to kick off their campaign against Afghanistan in the Under 19 World Cup!

    Match starts at 9:30pm GMT - so that's half an hour before the senior team takes the field against NZ.

    Afghanistan will be fancying their chances after trashing Pakistan and winning the recently concluded Under 19 Asia Cup.

    Can the lads bounce back and get their campaign off to a winning start or will Afghanistan continue to roll with their momentum?

    In the space of two weeks in November 2017 in the Under 19 Asia Cup, Afghanistan beat Pakistan twice, but were also beaten by Sri Lanka, who in turn succumbed to Pakistan. All three will again face off in Group D of the ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup and with Ireland – never to be discounted – completing the four, their pool is set to be one of the most competitive in the tournament. This early clash, taking place at Cobham Oval in Whangerei and kicking off at 10.30am on Saturday 13 January, could prove pivotal in the final analysis.

    Form guide

    Afghanistan come into this competition in red-hot form. In November they won the Under 19 Asia Cup, thumping forthcoming opponents Pakistan by 185 runs in the final. They have players with ODI four-fors and first-class triple centuries in their ranks. They have been rightly picked out by many of the other teams as one of the favourites for the tournament.

    But Pakistan are no slouches either. Though they were thumped in that Under 19 Asia Cup final, they still played well enough to make it there in the first place – another thrashing by Afghanistan notwithstanding – hammering UAE and inching past Bangladesh and fellow Group D opponents Sri Lanka.

    Both teams won their warm-up games, Afghanistan in a close game against Bangladesh, and Pakistan in a hammering of Namibia, and despite the recent one-sided history, this is shaping up to be a close, high-quality game.

    Players to watch

    Mujeeb Zadran (Afg)

    Mujeeb Zadran celebrates a wicket on ODI debut Mujeeb Zadran celebrates a wicket on ODI debut
    In two games against Pakistan in the Under 19 Asia Cup, 16-year-old off-spinner Mujeeb Zadran took a combined 11/36 across both matches, securing the title for his country, and an ODI debut against Ireland at Sharjah a fortnight later, in which he again shone, taking 4/24. The teenager is clearly precocious, but plying his trade outside of Asia for the first time will present a different challenge. It will be intriguing to see how he handles it.

    Shaheen Afridi (Pak)

    It must be the name. Unforgettably, 22 years ago Shahid Afridi broke the record for the fastest ODI ton in his debut innings. Now Shaheen Afridi has imitated him in his own way, snaring 8/39 on first class debut, the best such figures by a Pakistani bowler. Comparing himself to Wasim Akram, and relishing the prospect of bowling on helpful New Zealand wickets, the young Afridi’s in-swing could make him difficult to handle.

    Head to head

    The two clashes in the Under 19 Asia Cup may have gone the way of the Afghans, but before that Pakistan had inflicted two thumping victories of their own, by 109 runs in their first-ever clash in 2012, and by six wickets, and with almost 20 overs remaining at the start of 2016, leaving the overall record level between the sides.

    Under 19 World Cup history

    Afghanistan’s stark rise, from being also-rans to one of the favourites, is illustrated by the fact that all their ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup appearances have come this decade. Their best performance until now came in 2014, when they shocked Australia in the group stages to qualify for the quarter-finals, eventually finishing seventh

    Pakistan are the third-most successful team in ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup history, having taken home the title twice, in 2004 and 2006, behind only India and Australia. They have made the final on a further three occasions, including at the first-ever tournament in 1988, with a team including future legends Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mushtaq Ahmed.

    Forecast

    As with most of the country, there has been some rain around in the last few days, but that is set to clear for the start of the tournament. Some clouds will linger, and there may be a shower or two in the morning, but the weather should still allow the game to be played to a finish.

    Squads

    Pakistan: Hasan Khan (c), Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Ali Khan, Ammad Alam, Zaid Alam, Ali Zaryab, Arshad Iqbal, Muhammad Mohsin Khan, Muhammad Musa, Saad Khan, Rohail Nazir (wk), Munir Riaz, Suleman Shafqat, Imran Shah, Mohammad Taha

    Afghanistan: Naveen-ul-Haq (c), Qais Ahmad, Azmatullah Omarzai, Ikram Ali Khil (wk), Rahmanullah, Mohammad Ibrahim, Zahir Khan, Darwish Rasooli, Baheer Shah, Tariq Stanikzai, Nisar Wahdat, Wafadar, Waqarullah Ishaq, Mujeeb Zadran, Yousuf Zazai

    Lets hope our boys can beat the hell out of Afghanis to avenge the two embarrassing Asia Cup defeats, conditions will suit us better this time. They just need to neutralize Mujeeb in his opening spell. Shaheen, Salman & Musa will run through their batting lineup for sure.

    ICC U19 World Cup (2018) Discussion thread

    Saif Hassan's 87 leads Bangladesh to comfortable win over Namibia

    After Bangladesh posted 190/4 thanks to half-centuries from Mohammad Naim and Saif Hassan the result was largely beyond doubt, hard though Namibia fought.

    With the fixture reduced to 20 overs a side, and with Namibia having won the toss and chosen to bowl, a fast start was imperative for the Asian side, and they got it thanks Pinak Ghosh, who dominated the early scoring, making 26 of Bangladesh’s initial 33, and striking four fours. His departure brought skipper Saif Hassan to the crease, and he provided a captain’s innings, smashing 84 off 48 balls, before falling on the last ball of the 20 overs.

    Opener Mohammad Naim’s 60 was also eye-catching, containing eight fours and a six, and the pair’s 97-run stand laid the platform from which Saif launched. He struck all five of his sixes in the four and a half overs which followed Naim’s dismissal, including three in the last over alone, as Bangladesh plundered 55 runs from the last four overs.

    Up until the Bangladesh captain’s onslaught, Namibia might have been satisfied with their work. Though they’d lacked potency, their bowling attack had largely kept Bangladesh quiet, and if they could only have gotten Saif out might have harboured hopes of restricting their opponents to something around 160. But they didn’t, and the total ended up 30 runs past that.

    The suspicion that Bangladesh's total would be a stretch too far for Namibia was confirmed when the African side slid to 12/4. Most of the damage was done by Qazi Onik who claimed superb figures of 2/14 from his four overs, and left onlookers wondering if a record victory could be on the cards.

    That the history books didn't need to be consulted was thanks Eben van Wyk and Nicol Loftie-Eaton, whose partnership of 69 allowed Namibia to at least regain some respectability, if not threaten to chase down Bangladesh's total. The former registered a half-century, all the more admirable for the hopeless circumstances in which it came, and helped his team reach 103/6.

    But the day's real story was Bangladesh's accomplished performance, putting away a spirited side with ease, and setting down a marker for other teams to take notice of.

    Zimbabwe thrash PNG in Lincoln

    After restricting Papua New Guinea to a well-below-par 95, a confident batting performance allowed Zimbabwe to canter to a 10-wicket win

    With rain having reduced the contest to 20 overs a side, Zimbabwe won the toss and chose to bowl. At first however the only way a wicket looked like coming was through a run out, with a couple of mix-ups going unpunished. And as Igo Mahuru upped the ante, pulling and uppercutting to good effect, Zimbabwe might have been worried, the score reaching 41/0.

    But Mahuru attempted one uppercut too many, skying a catch to deep point off Robert Chimhinya, and from there PNG slid. His run-a-ball 26 remained the top score, and though several others made starts – Simon Atai a doughty 14, Sinaka Arua a belligerent 18, including PNG’s only six, and Ovis Sam a hard-run 24 not out, which remarkably came at better than a run a ball despite not containing a boundary – it felt like every time PNG tried to increase their run rate, wickets fell as a consequence.

    This was as much down to canny Zimbabwe bowling as anything else, with no bowler proving too loose. Off-spinner Wesley Madhevere’s 3/19 was the pick of the figures, but all combined to good effect.

    More mixed was Zimbabwe’s fielding effort. Though there were some excellent stops and a running boundary catch from Madhevere to appreciate, there were also multiple dropped catches. But though it’s something that they will be looking to improve going forward, they rallied well enough today that it shouldn’t matter, and the chase was little more than a formality.

    There was a noticeable lack of intensity - although the appealing from PNG was at least energetic - as Zimbabwe's openers Greg Dollar and Wesley Madhevere took the chance to enjoy some time in the middle relatively free of pressure. The latter looked particularly comfortable, striking six fours on his way to a half-century, including one gorgeous lofted straight drive. He held the pose, and deserved to enjoy an excellent individual performance with bat, ball, and in the field. But he and his side will know there are much tougher tasks ahead.

    Big-hitter scores first century of 2018 ICC U19 CWC as the hosts see off West Indies in comprehensive eight-wicket victory

    In the end, it was all too comfortable for New Zealand. The hosts sauntered to an eight-wicket victory, riding happily on the back of the 163-run stand between Finn Allen and Jakob Bhula. En route, Allen recorded the first century of the 2018 ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup, while Bhula fell short, ending at 83. Their knocks helped New Zealand post 234/2 in 39.3 overs after their bowlers had restricted the defending champions to 233/8 despite their flying start at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on Saturday (13 January).
    In their chase, New Zealand lost Rachin Ravindra, who had earlier excelled with the ball, for just a 26-ball 16, but that was about the only thing that went right for West Indies in the second innings.

    There was a minor rain-forced delay thereafter that, perhaps, helped New Zealand recalibrate their plans. On resumption, Allen went about displaying a brand of batting that was, at times, more suited to T20Is. The half-century stand was brought up via a six off Allen, and he then completed his own fifty as well, off just 43 deliveries.

    West Indies didn’t help themselves either – Allen found more height than distance with one of his slogs, and Ronaldo Alimohammed somehow made a mess of it. It also happened to be a no-ball, much to Alimohammed’s relief. There were no more mistakes from New Zealand. Allen and Bhula entered the sixties and the seventies, but Allen left his partner behind and raced into the nineties. He passed his previous high score of 97, and the century was completed off 92 balls – the first of the tournament on the opening day.

    It was then a question of whether he would spare runs so that Bhula, in the 80s by this point, could claim his own ton – unfortunately for Bhula, he was dismissed soon after, chipping one back to Alick Athanze. Allen went about completing the chase, with a six off Nyeem Young and a four off Ashmead Nedd to bring up the target with 63 balls to spare.

    Finn Allen scored the maiden century of the 2018 ICC U19 CWC. Finn Allen scored the maiden century of the 2018 ICC U19 CWC.
    Earlier, however, the Kiwi captain Kaylum Boshier might have been regretting his decision to bowl as openers Keagan Simmons and Kimani Melius sauntered to 123 without loss. The latter, although reprieved by a missed run out, looked untroubled in reaching 78, even striking the tournament’s first six, smoked gloriously off the front foot over extra cover, before adding another three maximums.

    But once he was dismissed, mistiming a slog-sweep to mid-wicket off Rachin Ravindra, West Indies encountered a slide of 4-27 – No.3 Bhaskar Yadram fell on 11, before vice-captain and captain Kirstan Kallicharan and Emmanuel Stewart added just three between them.


    In this context, Athanze’s 26 was quietly crucial, steadying the ship, surviving a narrow stumping chance, and adding 49 for the fifth wicket with the ever-present Simmons. The last five overs saw three wickets fall and 34 runs scored as West Indies tried, with partial success, to inject some late impetus. Simmons batted through the innings for an unbeaten 92 in the face of some excellent bowling and dismissals at the other end. His knock came at a strike-rate of less than 70, a valiant attempt which was ultimately in vain.

    By the end of the innings, Ravindra, little more than a part-timer, claimed 3-30 with his off-spin. The numerous twirlers in West Indies’ ranks tried desperately to return similar figures, but it wasn’t to be. Not against Allen, not today.

    AFGHANISTAN, NEW ZEALAND IMPRESSIVE WINNERS

    New Zealand started with a comprehensive eight-wicket win over defending champions Windies while Afghanistan pulled off a five-wicket win over Pakistan on the opening day of the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup today.

    Number three batsman Finn Allen, a second-timer at the U19 CWC, was the star for the hosts with an unbeaten 115 in Tauranga while Darwish Rasool’s 76 anchored Afghanistan’s victory in Whangarei after a fine bowling effort by the Asia Cup champions.

    On a day which saw four matches being played across three cities, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe also notched wins, though their matches in Christchurch were reduced to 20 overs per side owing to rain. Bangladesh defeated Namibia by 87 runs and Zimbabwe beat Papua New Guinea by 10 wickets.


    New Zealand v Windies

    The Windies had taken the early initiative after being put in to bat in the opening Group A match as Keagan Simmons compiled an unbeaten 92 and put on 123 runs with opening partner Kimani Melius (78). However, they were restricted by some tight bowling later on and could only manage 233 for eight.

    In what was the first of 20 matches in this tournament being broadcast live by ICC TV, pace bowler Matthew Fisher grabbed three for 61 and spinners Rachin Ravindra (three for 30) and Felix Murray (two for 37) kept the Windies side on a tight leash.

    New Zealand coasted home with more than 10 overs to spare with Jakob Bhula also knocking up 83, leaving Windies captain Emmanuel Stewart disappointed.

    “I thought the effort of the opening batsmen was not supplemented. I also thought we did not use the new ball well enough because we needed some early wickets,” Stewart said.


    Afghanistan v Pakistan

    For Afghanistan, captain Naveen-ul-Haq struck with the new ball to reduce Pakistan to 23 for two after the two-time champions elected to bat in the Group D match. An 88-run third-wicket partnership between opener Rohail Nazir (81 off 105 balls) and Ali Zaryab (30 off 58 balls) steadied the ship but the 2004 and 2006 champions could not consolidate on the stand.

    Medium-pace bowler Azmatulllah Omarzai and spinner Qais Ahmad grabbed three wickets each as Afghanistan showed that they are capable of upsetting leading sides and the team to watch from Group D, which also has Sri Lanka and Ireland.

    Pakistan captain Hassan Khan praised the Afghanistan team, which has now beaten them three consecutive times after having also got the better of them two times in the Asia Cup in November, including in the final.

    “They bowled and batted really well. They outclassed us in every department, especially in the first innings. The pitch was pretty good to bat on but the way they bowled was tough for us,” Hassan said.

    Naveen-ul-Haq did not lend much importance to their third win over Pakistan.

    “We have prepared well. We aren’t thinking of anything like we have beaten them thrice. It was just another game of cricket. We restricted them to under 200, so it was a good total for us to chase down.”




    Bangladesh v Namibia

    Bangladesh started with a comprehensive win in their bid to better their third-place finish as hosts last time, defeating Namibia by 87 runs in a Group C match reduced to 20 overs per side owing to rain.

    Captain Mohammad Saif Hassan smashed 84 off 48 balls with three fours and five sixes to help post a huge 190 for four. Naim Sheikh also chipped in with 60 and the opposition were buried under the pressure of a huge target even though all-rounder Eben van Wyk got a half-century.


    PNG v Zimbabwe

    Zimbabwe scored a 10-wicket win over Papua New Guinea in another match that was reduced to 20 overs a side.

    They restricted Papua New Guinea to 95 in the opening Group B match and then got to the target with six overs to spare. Wesseley Madevere grabbed three for 19 with his off-spin bowling and then made a brisk 53 not out to be named player of the match. His opening partner Gregory Dollar remained not out on 48.


    Scores in brief:

    Afghanistan beat Pakistan by 5 wickets in a Group D match at Cobham Oval, Whangarei

    Pakistan 188, 47.4 overs (Rohail Nazir 81, Ali Zaryab 30, Azmatullah Omarzai 3-34, Qais Ahmad 3-38, Naveen-ul-Haq 2-30)

    For those wondering who Abhishek Sharma is, here's a bit about him:

    He dominated the National Under-16 tournament in 2015-16, being the highest run-getter with over 1200 runs, almost 500 runs clear of the next batsman in the list. He was also the leading wicket taker, with 57 wickets -(again 20 wickets clear of his nearest competitor).

    Presently playing first class cricket for Punjab in the Ranji Trophy.

    Happens here too, but maybe on a smaller scale. but also, the competition in India is so huge that even for recommendation, you have to be good enough.

    Lets not get carried away. There are 10-12 bowlers bowling around 140 kph, just a few of them can touch 90 mph. No one can really bowl consistently at 90 mph among them.

    Indian young fast bowlers are impressive

    Even their senior team have a better bowling attack than Pakistan.

    Warrier, Thakur, Chaudhary and even Siraj generally bowl in the 135-140 range. Sangwan can hit above 140 kph, but don't know how fit he is after the comeback from drug ban.

    Haven't seen Asif or Monu Kumar bowl but heard good things about the latter. Lalit Yadav hasn't been clocked yet (got injured in the final stages of Ranji) but looked quite sharp in the Punjab game.

    Joseph is a spinner IIRC and this list missed Avesh Khan and Nathu Singh who can bowl 140+.

    My bad about Joseph, but Thakur clocked 148 in one of the game, and Warrior, Chaudhary both have been clocked upto 146-147 in Ipl, don't go by domestic speed guns, Asif was bowling 90 mph yesterday u can check it on hotstar,Sangwan has upped his pace as he has put on lots of muscle.

    Ok. Good to know about Asif, will check it out.

    Still not convinced Thakur can bowl 90 mph, have watched him for a few years now.

    If he is legitimately 19, that is very impressive. Hope these lads can make it to the test team.

    Nagarkoti. Little short. Wiry. Probably lot of lean muscle. He is somewhat like Wahab with his little jump before releasing the ball. May be this action helps you bowl faster. Pretty impressive he could maintain throughout the match.

    Indians are not natural fast bowlers like West Indians. So i appreciate lot of guys willing to put effort to become fast bowler.

    That is why they have to be fast tracked. But in IPL generally these guys to push themselves.

    India know how to groom their batsmen looks like things are changing on the bowling front as well, you need bowlers in Test cricket not batsmen.
