India U-19 Teams are set to host the South African U-19 and Afghanistan U-19 sides for the Quadrangular U-19 One Day Series. The opening ODI between India U-19 A and South Africa U-19 will be played at Greenfield International Stadium while India U-19 B will take on Afghanistan U-19 at St Xavier’s College Ground, Thiruvananthapuram.
All the tour teams will collide with each other in the round-robin format followed by a third-place playoff and the final. Greenfield International Stadium and St Xavier’s College Ground in Thiruvananthapuram will host all the matches in this series. Team India would be eyeing to make the most of the home conditions heading into the Quadrangular ODI series. Both the U-19 Indian sides can face each other in the finals if they perform to their potential.
South Africa, on the other hand, is struggling to find their feet in this Indian tour. Having thrashed in the Test series, the Proteas would be hoping to bounce back in the shorter format. The hosts hammered South Africa by nine wickets in the first test followed by the massive innings and 158 runs defeat in the second Test match. After the humiliating series loss in White kit, the visitors will be determined to emerge victorious in the opening ODI to gain some confidence heading into this series.
