Match Prediction ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 - South Africa U19 v Canada U19
The 12th match of the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 will be played between South Africa U19 and Canada U19 at the Senwes Park in Potchefstroom.
South Africa were part of the opening encounter of the ICC under 19 World Cup 2020 but lost by 7 wickets at the hands of Afghanistan. Following the failure of both their openers Jonathan Bird and Andrew Louw, skipper Bryce Parsons, Luke Beaufort and lower-order batsman Gerald Coetzee made some good contributions but the team could only reach 129.
In return, Achille Cloete was the only bowler who proved to be penetrative with figures of 4-20-2. As a result, the team lost within 25 overs.
Canada have lost their only match of the tournament that they have played till now. The defeat came against United Arab Emirates by 8 wickets.
The team had a decent batting outing with them posting 231 runs on the board. Mihir Patel was the top scorer with a 90 but unfortunately could not complete his century and was run-out. Ranbir Sandhu, Akhil Kumar and Muhammad Kamal also contributed with 30s.
However, their bowling failed to make any impact. Ayush Verma proved to be the most economical bowler but wickets were hard to come by as the team lost with more than 10 overs to spare.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
South Africa U19 - Gerald Coetzee, Luke Beaufort, Jonathan Bird, Achille Cloete, Bryce Parsons (c), Khanya Cotani (wk), Andrew Louw, Tiaan van Vuuren, Manje Levert, Mondli Khumalo, Jack Lees
