Match Prediction ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 - South Africa U19 v United Arab Emirates U19
The 23rd match of the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 will be played between South Africa U19 and United Arab Emirates U19 at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein.
After losing the opening match of the ICC under 19 World Cup 2020 against Afghanistan by 7 wickets, South Africa came back strongly to register a 150-run victory against Canada in their last match. Skipper Bryce Parsons struck a fabulous century at a strike rate of 132 to take the Proteas to a total of 349.
Achille Cloete, Tiaan van Vuuren and Merrick Brett then picked up two wickets each to take the team to a resounding win.
They will take on United Arab Emirates who won their first match against Canada by 8 wickets while losing the next one against Afghanistan by 160 runs.
Canada scored 231 runs from their 50 overs, despite three wickets from Sanchit Sharma and two each from Chathiyan Dashan and skipper Aryan Lakra.
It was a decent score but the UAE batsmen did not make it appear so. Lakra, who came out to open the batting, scored 66 off 92 deliveries but it was the unbeaten century from Figy John at a strike rate of over 100 that ensured an easy victory for UAE.

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
