South Africa Under-19s are coming on the back of a loss against the Sri Lanka Under-19s in their first warm-up game after their middle-order collapsed. The Proteas were 99/3 in 20 overs chasing 183 before none of the bottom five managed to reach double digits. They finished runners in the Quadrangular tournament where they managed to win only one game. They will take on Nigeria U19s in their second practice match.
On the other hand, the Nigeria team was thrashed by Pakistan by a huge 9-wicket margin. This will be a crucial game for both the teams.
