Match Details:

The 6th warm-up match of the ICC Under-19s World Cup 2020 will be played between New Zealand Under-19s and the United Arab Emirates Under-19s at the St Stithians Main Oval in Johannesburg.

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

Preview:

New Zealand Under-19s will be hoping for some good match practice ahead of the mega event starting later this week. New Zealand were part of the Quadrangular series where they won only one match and finished fourth. Even that win came by virtue of poor execution in the last moments of a chase by Zimbabwe U19 side. Their first warm-up match will be against the United Arab Emirates who were part of the U19 CWC only in 2014 where they were hosts. The UAE U19s have a good number of players with International experience at senior level.


Weather Condition/Report:

It will be a miracle to get a full match at the St Stithians Main Oval in Johannesburg as the forecast suggests rain throughout the day.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The St Stithians Main Oval in Johannesburg has not hosted any matches higher than U15 level till date. Hence, it won’t be possible to predict the nature of the track. However, given the weather around, pacers could find help with the moisture on the pitch.

Average first innings score: N/A
