In the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020, we have West Indies U19 squaring off against Nigeria U19 at Country Club B Field, Kimberley. This match will be taking place on January 23, 2020, at 1:30 PM IST.
West Indies have established their dominance in Group B of the ICC Under 19 World Cup this season. West Indies have played two matches so far and won both. This has made them almost secure their spot in the knockouts. The Indies brutally thrashed Australia and England previously this season. However, a point of worry for the West Indies would be the performance of their opening batting order, which tumbled in their previous match against England. Half the team was sent back before they even made 140 runs. If it wasn’t for Kelvon Anderson and Nyeem Young rescuing the team mid-way through the match, the Caribbean side would have lost the game. So, it’s of utmost importance that the team gets its batting order sorted.
Nigeria is at the bottom of Group B. They have played 1 match so far and lost it. Nigeria was thrashed by Australia by 10 wickets. The upcoming match will be crucial for Nigeria if they want to make it to the Knockouts. However, it will be an uphill task to beat West Indies, who have been in great form. Nigeria’s batting order couldn’t withstand Australian bowler, Tanveer Sangha’s onslaught as the team lost 5 wickets to him. Right now, Nigeria’s topmost concern is the need to improve its batting order and strengthen its opening partnership.
