New Zealand Under-19s have had a mixed campaign so far. After having lost to defending champions India in the league stage, the Kiwis pulled off a massive upset in the quarter-finals when they beat a strong West Indies team by two wickets.
On the other hand, Bangladesh Under-19s made a place for themselves in the semifinals with a comprehensive 104 run victory over hosts South Africa. Batting first, the young Tigers racked up 5-261. Spinner Rakibul Hasan then proceeded to run through the Proteas batting line-up with a five-wicket haul to steer his side to a commanding win. The winner of this fixture will take on India Under-19s in the final of the 2020 ICC Under-19 World Cup.
