The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (1:30 PM IST) (8:00 AM GMT)


South Africa Under-19s continue to underperform before the U19 CWC as they lost the first warm-up match against Sri Lanka Under-19s following a middle-order collapse. The home team were 99/3 in 20 overs chasing 183 before none of the bottom five managed to reach double digits. They finished runners in the Quadrangular tournament where they managed to win only one game. They will take on Nigeria U19s in their second practice match. The Nigeria team lost to Pakistan by a huge 9-wicket margin.

Weather Condition/Report:

Scattered thunderstorms are expected at the LC de Villiers Oval during the afternoon which is likely to cause interruption.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The LC de Villiers Oval in Pretoria hosted the game between England and Zimbabwe which ended with a result. The Zimbabwe team were rolled over for just 116 while batting first which indicates there was help for the pacers due to the moisture.

Expert Advice:

Nigeria had a disaster start losing the first warm-up match against Pakistan by a huge margin. There were no individual performances to cheer about for the Nigerians either. However, there are few players who have experience of representing the national team that is why we picked up five from the Nigeria squad in the Grand League.

Probable Winners:

Nigeria Under-19s are likely to put on a better performance but South Africa U19s are expected to win.
