This tournament has produced the likes of Virat Kohli, Umar Akmal, Kane Williamson, and several other international superstars.

Sangha will lead the Australian side in the World Cup

The skipper of the Australia side for the upcoming U19 World Cup, Jason Sangha, is certainly no stranger to playing at the highest level cricket. When Joe Root’s England came visited Australia in November, Sangha smashed an impressive 133 at Townsville in Adelaide.

This century came against a world-class bowling attack comprising of Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, and Mason Crane.

The significance of this century was the fact that he became the second youngest player to smash a first-class ton, second to none other than the great Sachin Tendulkar.

He has also impressed in the two matches he has played for New South Wales in so far.
