Expert Prediction: SA U19 v WI U19
A lot of teams had arrived in South Africa with the dream of making a name for themselves and make their country proud. At the age of 19, young men strived to become world-beaters. However, a few of them have already been left heartbroken like the hosts South Africa and West Indies under-19 teams.
Both South Africa and West Indies were beaten in their respective quarter-final by Bangladesh and West Indies. South Africa, being the hosts, have really come under the scanner as they were at least expected to make it to the semis. Cricket is not in a healthy state in South Africa at the moment. With the senior team struggling as well, a lot of pressure is now on Cricket South Africa and Graeme Smith.
West Indies, on the other hand, would have been left very disappointed after their close loss against New Zealand. They did most things right in their quarter-final but just could not close the game. They had reduced New Zealand to 153 for 8 and a lot of runs were needed to be chased. They failed to create chances post that and ended up losing the game.
Now both teams have a chance to leave the tournament with respect by winning the fifth-place playoff. Our prediction is of a victory for West Indies Under-19 team as they look in a better frame of mind at the moment than South Africa, who must be in lots of pressure after crashing out in their own World Cup.
