The U-19 World Cup in New Zealand, 2018

I guess this needed a thread.

No major upsets yet- Afghanistan did already defeat Pakistan a month back so it wasn't completely unexpected.

The defending Champs, the Windies, look to be under a very real threat of going out in the first round.

India have looked impressive in the first game versus Australia but I can't shake the feeling that the Team is a batsman short.

Important results so far (hopefully others can update as their team plays)

Afg vs Pak- Afghanistan Under-19s won by 5 wickets.

Nzl vs Win- New Zealand U19 won by 8 wickets.

Ind vs Aus- India U19 won by 100 runs

He had a poor game first up but is highly rated.

James Sutherland's kid is also playing.

And Ntini's progeny is representing SA.

Comfortable win for England in their opener against Nambia chasing down 198 inside 25 overs!! Their match with Bangladesh will decide the group winners, the winner of that likely to face Australia in the QF's.

It's a bit weird that these matches are being televised. Seems to be an open invitation to match-fix.

The star of England beating Namibia was the Queenstown scenery.

Agreed - the view particularly from one end was quite stunning.

I didn't realise it was televised is it on Sky?

Interesting to see Will Jacks doing well, I've heard he's very highly thought of at Surrey.

Not many close games so far, even in games between the major nations.

Shame Queenstown has become the most expensive place in the country and is full with tourists. The council has recently limited Airbnb dates by property to (I think) 25 per year as too many people are buying expensive property just to let out short term to tourists - meaning the people that work there can't live there.

Better places in NZ than Queenstown if all you want is scenery. We have scenery covered. Just don't ask how much dairy effluent is in the water.

Even worse today, India took less than 30 overs to beat Papua New Guinea (64ao) whilst Pakistan chased down Ireland's 97 in less than 9 overs!!

Some real mismatches.

Agreed that NZ is properly stunning.

Do you have a more picturesque cricket ground though?

The WI side up to no good again - this time taking a wicket after a batsman picked up and threw a stationary ball to the keeper. Keeper (who was captain) appealed for obstructing the field (even though he was just helping the fielding side out) and he was given out by the 3rd umpire. Let's hope they don't get a reprieve after the Mankad at the last tournament and go on to win it.

On the plus side, nice to see a Kallicharan on a scorecard again, don't think he's any relation.

I don't have a problem with the Mankad as long as it is preceded by a warning- though I'm not sure that was the case that time. Also, in that particular case I don't think the batsman was necessarily trying to take early advantage- he was on the line, wasn't he?

But in this case you have to wonder what the third umpire was looking at. The ball had clearly stopped before he held it. I just can't see how he was obstructing the field?

That's in the laws of cricket. The batsman isn't allowed to handle or use his bat on the stationary ball without the opposition having approved it.

The umpires had no option but to give him out if the Windies captain was unwilling to withdraw the appeal.

The law doesn't say 'stationary ball' though. It says 'while the ball is in play'. And that I feel is quite clearly open to interpretation on a case by case basis.

I agree with this Tweet from Joe Denly:

I’v just seen the incident and it is all wrong. I have no sympathy generally for Mankad “victims” as they gain an undue advantage by gaining ground. However no advantage was being gained in this instance.

Which incident? The Mankad one from the last WC or the Obstructing the Field one from yesterday?

The obstructing incident. Sorry I wasn’t clear.
