India Under-19s will square off against New Zealand Under-19s in the 20th match of the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 on Friday, January 24. The match will take place at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein. It will commence at 1:30 PM (IST).
India Under-19s, who are also the defending champions have lived up to expectations in the tournament so far as they have managed to win both their opening games comprehensively. They first beat Sri Lanka by 90 runs and followed it up with a clinical 10 wicket victory over Japan thus ensuring a place in the quarter-finals.
On the other hand, New Zealand Under-19s will be riding high on confidence after they beat Sri Lanka in the last game. Their first game against Japan ended in a no result and the Kiwis desperately needed the win against Lankans to stay alive in the tournament. They are almost through to the final eight and the result of this game hardly matters. But the Blackcaps would be determined to end the group stage on a high note. Let's have a look at the squads and Dream11 prediction.
