In a bid to dovetail with the pace and bouncy pitches along with its tough conditions in South Africa, the Games Development Committee of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has drawn up a plan of a preconditioning camp for its Under-19 Cricket Team ahead of the 2020 ICC U19 Cricket World Cup.

The imminent edition of the flagship event for the youth is all set to get underway, just after five weeks in between January 17 and February 9 in South Africa.

Bangladesh youth is expected to fly to South Africa in the first week of January (5), around two weeks before the showpiece event considering the South African tough conditions and pitches in mind.

The youth Tigers will play a total of four practice matches before the kick-off of the extravaganza event, two of which is approved warm-up matches by International Cricket Council.

The rest of the two matches among the outings will be played against two local teams arranged by the board as a part of their preparation beside their regular practice sessions in this African country.  BCB Games Development senior national manager AEM Kawser acknowledged the matter regarding the pre-conditioning camp of the youth Tigers prior to 2020 Under-19 World Cup.

Therefore, Kawser said they have arranged a preconditioning camp for the youth team in South Africa so that they can make their adjustment with the wickets and conditions alongside can take advantage of it before stepping into the main games.

“You have all noticed that our youth team has played more than 50 international matches under the bilateral and multilateral series and tournaments at home and abroad as a part of their World Cup preparation. I don’t have any knowledge that any team around the world have played so many matches at this level of cricket,” AEM Kawser said.

“Of late, the Bangladesh youth played their last series against Sri Lanka at home where they performed well,” Kawser told The Independent at his BCB office.

“This time we’ve arranged a preconditioning camp so that they can make their habituation with the African tough condition and replicate their current form of runs in the mega event,” he added.

Kawser tipped the current squad as the best-ever team in their history, saying that they can hope for the best result from this squad.

The youth Tigers has been given a two-week vacation in the aftermath of the just-concluded home series against their Sri Lankan counterparts. The squad players have already started their training camp under head coach Naveed Nawaz at the National Cricket Academy of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.

 Naveed, who went to his home country after the conclusion of the home series,  returned to Dhaka on December 5 to join the team’s training camp.

 India and few other teams meanwhile announced their teams for the looming ICC Under-19 World Cup-2020 for the youth. It is learnt that the BCB will also soon declare Bangladesh youth team for the youth flagship event.
