2016 U-19 Cricket World Cup



  • Our campaign is essentially over after losing to Nepal. We probably have to beat India and Ireland to go through.



  • I was just about to post that. What the actual fuck?



  • Nepal borders India. Apparently cricket there is of a similar scale to India. It is just a lack of relative population and poverty which holds them back. However, you have to be disappointed with that result. Three run outs too.



  • After the controversy with the mankad vs Zimbabwe the Windies U19s upset India to win the WC.  Who says cheats never prosper?  :whistle:



  • We lost the ELEVENTH place pay off to SA by a 140 runs
    We managed to lose to Nepal and Afghanistan. Pathetic.



  • After the controversy with the mankad vs Zimbabwe the Windies U19s upset India to win the WC.  Who says cheats never prosper?  :whistle:

    They didnt cheat. I find all the bitching about the WI pretty annoying. The batsmen have enough things weighted in their favor, why the fuck should they get a head start in running between the wickets as well?



  • Sooo do these tournaments actually mean anything? Do WI have some actual talent coming through the ranks?



  • I was being facetious.  We should all be happy that India didn't win!



  • The finishing orders of the teams is quite revealing
    West Indies
    India
    Bangladesh
    Sri Lanka
    Pakistan
    England
    Namibia
    Nepal
    Afghanistan
    Zimbabwe
    South Africa
    New Zealand
    Ireland
    Scotland
    Canada
    Fiji
    Not sure what it means for the future - but generally I reckon the rule is, future world stars will appear in this tournament and the team they play in will do well. Which suggests that this vintage is not going to be in the Black Caps in 3-4 years time.



  • 4 sub-continent teams in the top 5.  That's why I wouldn't bet against India winning the T20 WC at home and the likes of England, SA, Aust and NZ struggling on those pitches.



  • Do Australia not have a team?



  • Do Australia not have a team?

    They didn't qualify. Australian age grade cricket is going down the tubes.
     
     
     
    Or they pulled out due to security concerns in Bangladesh.



  • An excellent tournament, NZ have a good young bowler in Gibson coming through. But the Windies have a 3 players that are very good: Pope, Springer and Joseph. The Indians have a guy called Washington and he will be excellent in years to come and England a leg spinner who does give it a rip.



  • Interesting to see Namibia doing relatively well.
     
    Good to hear the West Indies have some good 'uns coming through too.
