Pakistan to take on India in Blind Cricket World Cup today

Rain dealt a blow to West Indies Under-19s' preparations for their opening match of the ICC Youth World Cup when it washed out their final official warm-up against Zimbabwe here Wednesday. The West Indies U-19 cricket team will launch their title defence with a match against hosts New Zealand.

Sixteen teams will compete in the tournament, with the 10 test-tier nations joined by six qualifiers.

They are joined by five regional qualifiers in the biennial tournament that showcases future stars every two years.

All teams in each group will play each other once. The top four will qualify for the semi-finals. The final will be played at Bay Oval on February 3 while both semi-finals will be played at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on January 29 and 30. This is the third time the tournament is being held in New Zealand, after 2002 and 2010.




Pakistan comes into the match following back to back victories against Bangladesh and Nepal.

Pakistan have been one of the better sides in the U19 Cricket World Cup over the years.

Sharing a special message for the cricket fans in Twitter, the India Under-19 team's head coach Dravid said,"The under-19 team is very keen to show you their talent".

Ireland captain Harry Tector: "The guys are obviously delighted to be going to the U19 World Cup. When we do that we'll be a formidable team", he says.
