Match Prediction ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 - India U19 v New Zealand U19
The 20th match of the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 will be played between India U19 and New Zealand U19 at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein.
After India started off their ICC under 19 World Cup 2020 campaign with a 90-run win over Sri Lanka, they registered another comprehensive 10-wicket victory against Japan.
Kartik Tyagi, Akash Singh and Ravi Bishnoi were among the wickets as India dismissed Japan for just 41. Openers Yashasvi Jaiswal and Kushagra then ensured that the team reached the target in less than five overs to register the most comprehensive victory of the tournament.
India have qualified for the World Cup Super League quarter finals and will now compete against New Zealand. The junior Black Caps' first match of the tournament against Japan was washed out. The team next faced Sri Lanka and registered a 3-wicket win.
Adhitya Ashok, skipper Jesse Tashkoff and Kristian Clarke were the stars for New Zealand against the Lankans. With the bat, Rhys Mariu and Beckham Wheeler-Greenall were the top scorers in the match that was decided on the second last delivery.
Although India have already qualified, the Kiwis will be their toughest competitors in the tournament till now.
