Under 19 ICC World Cup
August 15, 2012, 10:34:53

 South Africa have deafeated Sri lanka for our last pool game. We are now undefeated during the pool stages. and have qualified for the Quarter finals.

 

South African Wicket keeper/opening batsmen  Quintin De Kock is top run maker for the pool stages with a total of 226 runs in the three pool games at an average of 75.33.

You go boys well done, and well done to Quintin, this is the obvious replacement for Boucher to those who do not know. Let AB concentrate on captaining and batting, we need a sepcialist wicketkeeper, and the guys in aus are comparing him to Gilchrist.

Yep...

The guy is a shoe in!

Hope he takes his game to the next level.

If he does, Gilly may no longer be known as the best keeper / batsman.

 And this is what happens if you speculate too early.

Bangladesh have sneaked through in the place of Sri Lanka above:

Quarters are:

Australia v Bangladesh

South Africa v England

India v Pakistan

New Zealand v West indies

 South Africa have beaten england in the qurter finals we are through to the semi's.

Man of the Match was off break bowler Prenalen Subrayen who took 4/24 in 10 overs triggering an England batting collapse where they lost 9 wickets for only 39 runs.

Watched the highlights, looked like a good game Aus needed 3 runs from 10 balls.

 

Just seems the boys could'nt get the job done with run 100 runs to go. They just needed that 1 wicket to lift them up and came to late. Any very well done to them all.

I watched the game this morning and there are some really good youngsters in the SA Team.   The problem was that I think they batted to slowly in the early stages - maybe becaise they lost early wickets.   The second issue was the bowling - too may wides and there was even a bowling no-ball early on in the Aussie innings,   That typeof thibng can be corrected through good coaching.

The outcome was also affected by two many leg side balls bowled in the 45th over - leading to 7 runs from that over.  

In any event the youngsters was not disgraced - so they can come home and learn their trade further.   Glad to hear about the wicket keeper that could ultimately replace Boucher.   He was out very early in the innings this morning - but that could jhappen to the best of batsmen.
