Match Details:

The 13th warm-up match of the ICC Under-19s World Cup 2020 will be played between Bangladesh Under-19s and New Zealand Under-19s at the Rice Field, St. John’s College in Johannesburg.

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


Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Bangladesh colts are looking a strong and confident unit ahead of the much Under-19 World Cup set to be played in South Africa. In their previous warm-up game against Australia, the young Tigers managed to tie the game while defending 250. Shoriful Islam had a good game with the ball for them while three of their batsmen – Parvez Hossain, Towhid Hridoy and Shamim Hossain – scored half-centuries.

New Zealand U19 team, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to be in great space at all. After losing to Zimbabwe Under-19s in the recently quadrangular tournament also involving India and South Africa, they went down to UAE colts in their first warm-up game. It is high time that they put their best foot forward and get some confidence ahead of their first game of the tournament on January 19.

Weather Condition/Report

It will be cloudy in the morning in Johannesburg. However, the clouds will clear up later and there is no chance of rain during the match. The temperature will hover around 24-28 Degrees Celsius according to AccuWeather.
