England Under-19 team will face Nepal Under-19 team today at Tony Ireland Stadium, Townsville.
1998 Champions, England are among one of the favourites to progress to the Super League stage from Group A of the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup 2012. England, despite their only victory in 1998, has produced some very solid performances over the years. It reached the semi-finals in 1988, 2004 and 2006, lost in the quarter-finals of the 2008 and 2010 events, while finished third and fourth in the Super League Stage in 2000 and 2002, respectively.
The England side will be led by Adam Ball who is a top-order batsman and has played nine first-class matches for English County side Kent. Adam Ball is quite confident to qualify for the next round after competing in the group stage. The English U-19 squad include: Adam Ball (captain), Shozair Ali, Daniel Bell-Drummond, Ben Collins, Alex Davies, Ben Duckett, Ben Foakes, Brett Hutton, Aneesh Kapil, Tom Knight, Jamie Overton, Craig Overton, Reece Topley, Kishen Velani and Sam Wood.
On the other hand, Nepal is returning to the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup 2012 after missing out on the 2010 event. It finished second behind Scotland and one place ahead of Ireland in the 10-team ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2011, which was staged in Ireland.
Nepal’s best performance came in the 2006 event in Sri Lanka where it defeated New Zealand in the final of the Plate Championship. In 2002 and 2008, Nepal lost the Plate Championship finals to Zimbabwe and the West Indies, respectively. The Nepal team include: Prithu Baskota (captain), Pradeep Airee, Naresh Budhaayer, Ramnaresh Giri, Mahamad Hasim Ansari, Bhuban Karki, Krishna Karki, Avinash Karn, Saurabh Khanal, Gopal Singh, Rahul Kumar Vishwakarma, Rajesh Pulani, Subash Khakurel, Sagar Pun and Fajlur Rahman.
