LIVE SCORES - Ireland U19 vs Sri Lanka U19
Ireland qualified for their ninth ICC Under 19 Men’s Cricket World Cup in style, skittling Scotland for 66 in a one-sided final of the Europe qualifier last September.
Matthew Humphreys was the star in La Manga, taking 5-25, and the slow left-arm spinner from Lisburn will be eager to take that form into the big occasion.
Ireland warmed up by taking on Zimbabwe in Barbados over the New Year and though they went down 3-1 in the series, a 117-run win in the final match showed what the side captained by Tim Tector are capable of on their day.
Tenth place in 2010 is Ireland’s best performance in their eight outings to date but they won three of their six matches last time they qualified in 2018, including a memorable four-run victory over Afghanistan.
Sri Lanka have named a strong team for the U19 World Cup, led by Dunith Wellalage.
Pawan Pathiraja recently did very well in the U19 Asia Cup. It was courtesy of his performance that the team made it to the final of the competition.
All-rounder Raveen De Silva and captain Dunith Wellalage are their main bowlers.
