The 1st warm-up match of the ICC World Cup U19, 2020 will be played between South Africa Under-19s and Sri Lanka Under-19s at Dobsonville in Durban.
The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (1:30 PM IST) (8:00 AM GMT).
Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
South Africa U19s had a great quadrangular series in which they reached the finals but they ended up losing a close game against the Indian colts. Their players were in great form as they will look to replicate the same in the first warm-up game against Sri Lanka U-19s. Bryce Parsons turned out to be the leading scorer in the previous series with 192 runs in four games. The same would be expected from him in the upcoming match. Also, their bowling unit also looks up to the mark as they produced some brilliant show in the recently concluded four-nation series.
Sri Lanka U19s emerged as the winners in the tri-nation series by defeating overwhelming favourites England in the finals. As far as the results of their previous games are concerned they have put some brilliant efforts in the recent past. In batting, they have Navod Paranavithana, Kamil Mishara and Ravindu Rasantha did a convincing job for their side with the bat as they were moving in red-hot form in the recently concluded tournament.
There are chances of rain on the matchday but it might not affect the length of the game. The wind is expected to blow at a rate of 9 to 18 km/hr while the temperature is expected to deviate between 16 and 26 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The ground has not hosted a single game in the last 10 years but the track is expected to offer a good battle between the bat and ball. The teams will easily manage a score 260+ runs looking forward to the firepower present in the batting of both the sides.
