The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday unveiled a revised schedule for the 15th edition of the U-19 Men’s World Cup 2024.
Five venues across South Africa will host a total of 41 matches over more than three weeks in January and February in the 15th edition of the event.
Last month, the ICC had announced a new host nation for the 15th edition of the Men’s U19 Cricket World Cup in 2024.
The event will take place in South Africa after the ICC Board confirmed the replacement of Sri Lanka as hosts.
Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) faced suspension by the ICC due to breaches in its obligations as a Member, particularly in failing to independently manage its operations without government interference.
The top three teams from each group will qualify for the Super Six phase of the event ahead of the semi-finals and final in Benoni.
ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup Groups:
Group A: India, Bangladesh, Ireland, USA
Group B: England, South Africa, West Indies, Scotland
Group C: Australia, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Namibia
Group D: Afghanistan, Pakistan, New Zealand, Nepal
ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup Schedule:
All teams will play two warm-up fixtures in South Africa between January 13-17. The main event will be played between January 19 and February 12.
