This Maaz guy is really good, must be knocking on 30 years of age. If I was 19 and looked like that I'd top myself, he'll look like Bejamin Button in 2 years time.

Are u watching live? He's honestly close to 30. There is not a 16 year old on the planet that looks like that. These organisers are full of shit if they are buying into this.

I would love it if we could somehow beat Afghanistan on Sunday. I can't stand their cricketers at either Under 19 or full national level.

It's insane. The best one is the Afghan wicketkeeper. Someone on here pointed out the other day he is claiming to be 16 too, but he made his Afghan First Class debut four years ago :lol: :lol: So he was 12?!?!?!

But there's obviously an unwritten requirement for any opposition not to query ages. I understand Pakistan and Afghanistan not wanting to raise their hands against each other, but what about England, NZ and Australia? I mean they'll be compliant.
If you're going to query bowling actions then surely you can do the same for ages.

Pakistan is likely to make the final, and hopefully against a team sticking to the rules and hopefully there will be some public noise.
This game isn't quite dead yet, these Afghans csn really play. They've faced world class bowling here and done well.
These Pakistanis did not bowl nearly as well against us, this is next level stuff.

I'm not going to stop whining about this. Check out the reserves of both sides, they're visibly much younger. They look 18/19.

Level playing fields are overrated man. It's not like anyone's life or livelihood depends on it. Theoretically there is nothing stopping ZIM from playing Musakanda or Maruma in this tourney as 17 year Olds.
