The ICC Under-19 Men’s Cricket World Cup is planned to begin on January 19 in South Africa.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, will kick off their campaign against India on January 20 in Bloemfontein.
Mahfuzur Rahman Rabby, who previously led Bangladesh to their first Asia Cup championship in December 2023, will lead the Young Tigers to defend the title, which the Akbar Ali-led Bangladesh U-19 squad won for the first time in 2020 in the same nation.
The 15th edition of the competition will feature the emerging talents of 16 nations competing in 41 matches spread over five sites.
Bangladesh Under-19 squad suffered a 112-run loss in the DLS technique against their Sri Lankan counterparts in their first warm-up match, but recovered impressively with a five-wicket triumph against Australia in the second warm-up game.
