After crushing Scotland U-19s in their final group stage match, Zimbabwe U-19s will look to continue their fine form when they meet minnows Canada U-19s in the third quarterfinal of the U-19 World Cup 2020 Plate League. Zimbabwe U-19s did not have the finest of starts to their campaign but the African youngsters brought their A game to the table versus the Scots.
This match between Zimbabwe U-19s and Scotland U-19s will start at 1:30 PM IST with the venue for the game being the North-West University Ground No.2 of Potchefstroom.
Canada U-19s struggled to get going in the first round but they have an opportunity to turn things around and attain a higher rank in the Plate League. The Canadians lost their matches against U.A.E. U-19s and South Africa U-19s while their match against Afghanistan U-19s produced no result.
The rainy conditions in Potchefstroom may tempt both the skippers to have a bowl first. Zimbabwean skipper Dion Myers will hope that Sakhumuzi Ndlela carries on his good form from the match against Scotland U-19s. The upcoming bowler had scalped 4 wickets in that game.
On the other side, Canada U-19s will rest their hopes on the duo of Akhil Kumar and Benjamin Calitz. Kumar had troubled the Proteas players with the ball while Calitz scored a fighting half-century in that fixture.
