Under 19 World Cup 2016: India vs New Zealand Match Prediction Preview
India win the toss ball first and win the match.
For Rahul Dravid, the performance of the top-order would be a worrying factor as the likes of Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, Armaan Jaffer did not look comfortable while batting in the morning session when the ball was doing a bit. Save Ricky Bhui, who looked good during his brief innings of 39, it was left to IPL star Sarfaraz to bail the junior team out of trouble with a polished knock of 74. There is a possibility that Tamil Nadu opener Washington will be brought up the order considering his tighter technique. During the U-19 season, Washington has opened and batted at No 3 for the colts team. Rishabh Pant is another batsman on whom a lot depends if India want to post a big total. Former India opener Wasim Jaffer’s nephew Armaan, a heavy scorer in national junior level, also did not look convincing during his short stay at the wicket. The bowling unit performed better with seamer Rahul Batham and pacer Avesh Khan keeping the batsmen under check during the first game.
For New Zealand, after suffering a big setback, it would require lot of gumption to come back against a formidable Indian side. The likes of Glenn Phillips and skipper Josh Finnie would like to prove that these batch of U-19s are as good as the ‘Class of 2008’ which had Ken Williamson, Trent Boult, Tim Southee to name a few. It was a happy moment for India in 2012 when they regained the ICC U-19 World Cup under the leadership of Unmukt Chand. Looking forward to regain the coveted trophy, the strong U-19 Indian side under the guidance of Rahul Dravid began their campaign with a win against Ireland in their first match on January 28.
Having easily beaten Canada and Pakistan in warm-up games, they went past the Irish hurdle without any hassle. The Ishan Kishan-led Indian side will now face New Zealand who had a disastrous start to their campaign as they lost to Nepal on January 28. India start strong favourites but the young Kiwis will look to mend their dismal show and come back stronger. The biggest hurdle for New Zealand will be young Sarfaraz Khan, who has been in sublime form and against Ireland struck a 70-ball 74. Meanwhile, New Zealand will look forward to bank on the good form of opener Glenn Phillips and pacer Nathan Smith. Though New Zealand have not played their best cricket in Bangladesh soil, the senior side in the recent times have pulled off some brilliant shows. India, who start as favourites will look to bank on their good form while New Zealand will want to forget the embarrassing performance against Nepal and turn the tables. Mirpur is set to witness the exciting encounter.
