The 2005 ACC Under-19 Cup was an international under-19 cricket tournament held in Nepal from 8 to 19 November 2005. The sixth ACC under-19 tournament to be held, matches were played in the capital Kathmandu and three other cities in the Kathmandu Valley, Bhaktapur, Kirtipur, and Lalitpur.

The number of teams at the tournament increased to fifteen (from the ten at the previous edition), with Afghanistan, Bahrain, Brunei, Iran, and Saudi Arabia making their debuts.[1] Coached by Roy Dias and captained by Paras Khadka, Nepal defeated Malaysia in the final at Kirtipur's Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground, with an estimated 10–15,000 people in attendance, as well as television viewership of 1.5 million.[2] The team won its second consecutive title (and third overall), and consecutively qualified for the 2006 Under-19 World Cup in Sri Lanka.[3] Kuwait and Qatar were the losing semi-finalists for the second tournament in a row.[4][5] The leading runscorer at the tournament was Malaysian batsman Ariffin Ramly, while the leading wicket-taker was Hong Kong's Irfan Ahmed.[6][7] The tournament's semi-finals and final were broadcast live on Nepal Television.[1]
