UAE-WU19 vs BA-WU19

Match Preview

Bangladesh U19s take on UAE U19s on the last day of the Super Six stage of the tournament. The game will be played out at the North West University Ground in Potchefstroom. Bangladesh has played a fearless brand of cricket throughout the tournament, but are likely to miss out on a semi final berth on NRR.
