England Under-19s will square off against West Indies Under-19s in the 8th match of the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 on Monday, January 20. The match will take place at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley. It will commence at 1:30 PM (IST).
This will be the opening fixture for the England Under-19s, which will be led by George Balderson. Their warm-up games weren't impressive as their first warm-up game against Zimbabwe was washed out due and they subsequently went on to lose their second warm-up game against Afghanistan Under-19s. They will have to be at the top of their game if they have to beat the West Indies Under-19s, who are coming on the back of a solid win against the Australians.
On the other hand, West Indies Under-19s will be brimming with confidence after the start to their tournament. They first won both their warm-up games and followed it up with a 3-wicket win over Australia Under-19 in the tournament opener. The Windies will look to continue their winning streak by registering a win in this fixture. Let's have a look at the squads and Dream11 prediction.
