CSA confirm U19 inbound tour vs Pakistan, name touring squad
Cricket South Africa (CSA) today announced the Coca-Cola South Africa under-19s squad that will take on Pakistan in a seven-match, Youth One-Day International series at home from 22 June to 07 July 2019. Bryce Parsons will captain the fledging squad of 15.
The tour, which forms a vital part of the home side’s preparation for the ICC U19 World Cup which will be hosted by South Africa early next year, will be played at Pietermaritzburg Oval and Chatsworth Oval.
CSA High Performance Manager, Vincent Barnes said; “The selection committee has selected a well-balanced team which will be up against talented and skilful opposition. The majority of the players recently toured India and also qualify to represent South Africa in the ICC U19 World Cup next year, so this will be more invaluable experience for them. I wish Coach Lawrence Mahatlane and his team all the best for the series.”
