Australia U19 will take on South Africa U19 in the warm-up match of the ICC U19 World Cup 2021-22 at the Everest Cricket Club Ground in Georgetown on Sunday.
This will be the fourth warm-up match of the ICC U19 World Cup 2021-22. Australia U19 have been drawn in Group D along with West Indies, Sri Lanka and Scotland.
They haven’t played competitive cricket in recent times and will look to capitalize on the warm-up games. Australia have won the U19 World Cup thrice before and their last win arrived under the captaincy of Mitchell Marsh in 2010.
South Africa, meanwhile, are in Group B alongside Uganda, India and Ireland. They recently took on West Indies in a four-match Youth ODI series that ended in a draw.
The experience in the West Indies might work to their advantage as they look for their first World Cup since 2014.
