The U19’s National side has apparently played a warm up match against the Mountaineers

Good runs for Roy Kaia and Joylord Gumbie who looks like he’s changed sides, smart move considering the Eagles also have Mutumbami & Regis.

Milton Shumba has also made a successful move of sorts, he’s now opening the batting and scored 111 against a good Goats attack.

Good to see Wes Medhevere back in the fold, the batting might be ok for the WC with Shumba, Wes, Dion Myers, Dane Schadendorff & Matthew Welch.

Shumba & Madhevere playing Under 19 Cricket from 2016. Myers & Schadendorff for 2 years, by now they should have been part of domestic cricket or even national side, such a poor selection process, youngstars bound to move to other nation.

With more preparation I would have had a lot more hope for these kids. They have some decent guys. This might be 1 of those rare groups for Zim where they have better batsmen than bowlers. I am excited to see how Myers Oldknow Shumba and Madhevere go.

A lot of them have been playing in this setup for a while and honestly i'm not mad at this strategy of preparing by playing against the domestic sides. Its definitely an eye opener for them. They should play all the franchises before they go.

On the other hand Kaia and Shingi going at 7 an over against a bunch of high school kids is very concerning. Shingi especially.

The U19’s side has played a couple more warm up matches against the ACHPP

https://www.crichq.com/matches/798114/2nd_innings

Good runs from Dane Schadendorf & Matthew Welch, the bowling again looks very concerning as they conceded over 320 against the Rangers

https://www.crichq.com/matches/799710/2nd_innings

Better bowling effort in this match, they seem to be lacking a couple strike bowlers up front. Where is that young quick fella Dion Mazhawidza ?

This is the best draw we could have asked for. With Mangongo at the helm, we could have probably cleared the group stages too?

Who is coaching the U19s now, by the way?

Utseya is serving as coach or assistant coach role from 2014 and is a big failure... ZIM U19 finished 10th in 2016 U19 World Cup & 11th in 2018 U19 World Cup

Utseya is controversial character, plays race card for hus benefit, such type of failures should be thrown out from any post related to grass root level.
