Zimbabwe U19

Zimbabwe found itself in Group C with teams like Australia and Sri Lanka. Expectedly, they had a rough time but a win against Namibia helped them earn two points and scrape through to the Super Six.

Now, as they face one of the heavyweights of the tournament, Zimbabwe will be eager to put up a better performance. The bowling has been one of the letdowns of Zimbabwe’s journey thus far and it is something that the team will need to work on.

Ryan Kamwemba jas struggled at the top of the order, and so have Campbell Macmillan, Kohl Eksteen, and Matthew Schonken in the middle order. Panashe Taruvinga looked in fine touch during the match against Namibia as he scored a half-century, the first by a Zimbabwe batsman in this edition. He was well-supported by Brendon Sunguro at the other end.

Coming to the bowling, Ryan Simbi and Newman Nyamhuri have bowled a couple of excellent spells and are the top wicket-takers for the team with 6 wickets each. The others in the bowling attack include all-rounders Matthew Schonken and Kohl Eksteen.

South Africa U19

South Africa finished at the top of the Group B table and starts as the 3rd placed team in the Super Six Group 2. With a tough fixture against Sri Lanka coming up, the hosts would like to score a big win here not only to get 2 points but also to improve its NRR.

Steve Stolk is in excellent form as an opener and has scored 2 half-centuries in his last 3 outings. He will look to give the team a strong start alongside Lhuan-dre Pretorius. Dewan Marais is another batsman to watch out for. He is the leading run-getter for the hosts in this tournament and has scored 187 runs at a strike rate of 147.24.

David Teeger and Juan Jones have chipped in with a couple of good knocks, and there is plenty of depth in the South African batting. Kwena Maphaka and Riley Norton will lead the attack with the new ball. The duo has picked up 13 wickets between them and is in fine form.

However, the other bowlers including Sipho Potsane and Romashan Pillay have struggled to perform and will look to be more disciplined in this match.
