Windies Under-19 to tour South Africa

West Indies Under-19 team will have a seven-match tour of South Africa later this year to continue preparation for the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Under-19 World Cup.

The regional ream won their first Under-19 World Cup in February 2016 in Bangladesh by defeating India.

The West Indies will be looking to defend the trophy when they play in New Zealand in January 2018.

The tour to South Africa will be in Durban from June 30 to July 27. It will feature two warm-up matches against local opposition and five One-Day Internationals against the South Africa Under-19 team.

The West Indies Under-19 is participating in the current Cricket West Indies (CWI) Regional Super50 tournament. They play in Zone A alongside Leeward Islands Hurricanes, defending champions Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, Windward Islands Volcanoes and English county side, Kent Spitfires.
