I see the SA u19's are part of their T20 franchise knockouts.
That doesn't make sense, why include the u19's in a domestic league and give them exposure just before a world Cup? :lol:
Not much is happening our side as usual, which makes me think Utseya is no longer part of it as he's been pretty pro active (pardon the pun). Maybe he's going up a level?

Not really sure I like the idea of fielding an entire U19 team domestically. Chances are they'll get trounced, and I don't think theres much benefit to that. Far better to absorb all the U19's into existing teams and guarantee a slot for them; say 1 or 2 U19's per XI in a world cup year maybe?

If ZC have any sense they'd be absolutely ensuring as many of the next U19 batch as possible play in the pro50/T20 games this coming domestic season.

When is the U19 world cup even? Is it not strange that we still don't have any dates for it? I've heard March suggested.

If Nigeria u19 can beat Rhinos then I'd like to think our U19's would do OK.

Ooh really? I thought I’d read it was in Q1 but that must have been from pre-pandemic maybe.

There’s a few of our boys who will be ineligible then by the end of next year.

The reason I doubt Q1 is because thats at most 5 months away and there seems to be no fixtures out. But cricket season in the Caribbean is Q2-Q3 (April to September)...My guess is the WC will be around September or October perhaps (after hurricane season ends). Actually hurricane season ends in November. So it might be very late in Q4.

Eligibility will become an issue. I wonder how they will handle that

Eligibility has certainly never bothered ZC :lol:
We could see Shumba and Madhevere playing their 27th u19 WC.
I think the WC starts in January unless it's been postponed.
If that's the case they've got 2 months to assemble a team and play some games. A lot of effort went into the last preparation and absolutely zero so far into this one.
There's something very odd about it all, doesn't add up.
