The second match of Under 19 Quad series in South Africa 2020 will feature a contest between the New Zealand Under 19s and Zimbabwe Under 19s on Friday. The Kiwis will enter as the favorites to win this contest because their skipper Jesse Tashkoff and wicket-keeper batsman Ben Pomare have the ability to destroy any opposition.
The match between NZ U19s and ZIM U19s will start at 1:30 PM IST at the Chatsworth Stadium in Durban.
The Youth ODIs are tough to predict because a lot of players are inexperienced. Looking at the current state of Zimbabwean cricket, the fans would hope that the team put in a stellar show in this series which also features India Under-19s and South Africa Under-19s.

Zimbabwe U-19s will rest their hopes on the shoulders of captain Dion Myers who will have to lead the side from the front. Besides, wicket-keeper batsman Brandon James will have to support the skipper. All-rounder Wesley Madhevere will look to contribute his bit in both the departments whereas Tadiwanashe Nyangani will lead the team’s bowling attack.
Talking about the stars present in the New Zealand U-19s team, Fergus Lellman and Rhys Mariu will be the batsmen to watch out for. Both batsmen will have the responsibility of scoring the maximum runs for the Black Caps. Apart from captain Tashkoff, Adithya Ashok will be the center of attention in the all-rounders’ department. In the bowling section, captain Tashkoff will expect the duo of Hayden Dickson and David Hancock to trouble the opposition batsmen with their skills.
Though Zimbabwe Under-19s have a bunch of talented players, it is unlikely that they would overcome the challenge from New Zealand Under-19s.
