Match Preview

UAEU19s take on AUSU19s in Group 1 Super Six fixture, to be played at the Senwes Park in Potchefstroom. Australia U19s head into their last Super Six game, having won the previous game by a huge margin after bowling India out for a paltry total of 87. For UAE, this will be their 1st outing in the Super Six stage of the tournament, and with hardly any chance left for them to make it through to the semis due to their poor showing in the group stage, all they’ll be playing for is pride
