How the age restrictions are followed by ICC for the under 19 cricket?


To compete in the ICC U19 CWC Players from Full Member countries must be under the age of 19 on the 1st of September before the event takes place and Players from Associate or Affiliate Member countries must be under the age of 20 on 1st of September before the event takes place. (For the avoidance of doubt this means that at midnight (in the country of birth) at the changeover from the 31st August to the 1st of September immediately before the event, players from Full Member countries must be under the age of 19 and players from Associate and Affiliate Member countries must be under the age of 20. If Members are in any further doubt as to the eligibility of a player they should contact ICC offices as fielding an ineligible player is a serious...

As a National record holder in athletics I suggest you to join any coaching institute or sports school.
Cricket is a team game and no one on his own can become a cricketer by self playing.First of all you need to develop team spirit ,that is the first quality a sportsperson should have.

By playing cricket near your house or in your school or college you have a feeling that you can become a cricketer which is not right.First of all join any cricket coaching institute because no one is going to take you in their team untill and unless you show them your formal coaching certificate and achievements in cricket(Only national and state level achievements are considered).

Secondly in the U-19 cricket team they do not take unexperienced cricketers.You should have experience in playing atleast district level cricket tournaments in the U-14 and U-16 category.
If this is your first time then better you dont think about becoming cricketer and just concentrate on your...

Tournament host UAE which is featuring for the first time ever in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup (ICC U19 CWC), will likely be the dark horse in Group D.

The other teams in that group for the tenth edition of the tournament are 1998 champion England, 1998 runner-up New Zealand and 2000 runner-up Sri Lanka.

The top two teams in the group will qualify for the Super League, with the bottom two going into the Plate Championship.

The event will be staged across six venues from February 14 to March 1, with Group D matches being held in Abu Dhabi’s Zayed Cricket Stadium, the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

After its below-par performance in the recent ACC U19 Asia Cup, the UAE U19 side is now looking to ride on the high of its senior counterpart’s success.

Last year, the UAE qualified for the ICC World Twenty20 Bangladesh 2014 after finishing fourth in the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier UAE 2013.

That success was...

1988 (Winner: Australia)

The inaugural event was titled the McDonald's Bicentennial Youth World Cup, and was held in 1988 as part of the Australian Bicentenary celebrations. It took place in South Australia and Victoria. Teams from the seven Test-playing nations, as well as an ICC Associates XI, competed in a round-robin format. Australia lost only one match, their final round-robin game against Pakistan by which time they had qualified for the semis. They went on to beat Pakistan by five wickets in the final, thanks to an unbeaten hundred from Brett Williams. England and West Indies made up the last four, but India were the real disappointments. After opening with a good win against England, they suffered hefty defeats in four matches to be knocked out early. The tournament was notable for the number of future international players who competed. Future England captains Nasser Hussain and Mike Atherton played, as did Indian spinner Venkatapathy Raju, New Zealand...

The 19-year-old Saud Shakeel is one of the brightest young prospects in Pakistan cricket. He has been in headlines since Shakeel started playing in Under16 tournaments in 2011 and then onto the inter-region Under-19 level, where he played for Karachi Whites and Karachi Zone. He then went to play in the Inter-Region/Department tournaments where he represented the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP). His proudest moment came in early 2014 where he was a finalist in the ICC Under-19 World Cup.

Recently promoted as the captain of the Pakistan Under-19 side, Shakeel has so far lead his team against the Afghanistan Under-19 in Lahore and in the recently-concluded series against Kenya Under-19 in Nairobi, which ended in 5-0 whitewash for the visitors. Not only did Shakeel lead his team to victory, he also had a fantastic tour due to his own performances which earned him two Man of the Match awards for innings of 121 and 112.

Can a player aged 19 play under 19 international cricket match? (Since 19 is not under 19)

The age of the player is not determined during the world cup. It is determined on 1st of September before the world cup. E.g. For ICC U19 World Cup 2014 the age of the players was determined based on 1st September 2013. That means any player must be under 19 on 1st Sept. 2013 to be qualified. You can see some players like Vijay Zol, Sanju Samson were over 19 during U19 WC 2014. But they were under 19 on 1st Sept. 2013.

Also to note, maximum age of 19 is applicable for players of Full Member countries only. For players from Associate and Affiliate Member countries the maximum age is 20 (probably due to limited number of cricketers).

To clear the doubt players must be under 19/20 at...

The ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup is an international cricket tournament contested by national under-19 teams. First contested in 1988, as the Youth World Cup, it was not staged again until 1998. Since then, the World Cup has been held as a biennial event, organised by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The first edition of the tournament had only eight participants, but every subsequent edition has included sixteen teams. Australia and India have both won the World Cup three times, while Pakistan have won twice and England, South Africa, and the West Indies once each. Two other teams – New Zealand and Sri Lanka – have made a tournament final without going on to win. In June 2016, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided that Indian players could only play in one under-19 tournament, regardless if they still meet the age criteria for another edition.[1]

Australia have pulled out of the ICC Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh due to concerns over player safety.

Australia's senior men's side postponed their scheduled tour of Bangladesh in October due to security fears and CA have monitored the situation in the country ever since.

Quick Single: Gayle sanctioned for TV comments

Cricket Australia's head of security Sean Carroll met with cricket and government officials in Bangladesh last week before reporting back to CA in Melbourne.

Having also consulted with the Australian government, Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland says the decision was made to withdraw from the tournament.

"We have always maintained that the safety and security of Australian teams and officials is our number-one priority," Sutherland said in a statement.

"For some time we have been working closely with ICC security advisors and monitoring the security situation in Bangladesh and have been keeping our players, officials...
