The 2020 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup is an international limited-overs cricket tournament currently being held in South Africa from 17 January to 9 February 2020.[1][2] It is the thirteenth edition of the Under-19 Cricket World Cup, and the second to be held in South Africa.[3] Sixteen teams are taking part in the tournament, split into four groups of four.[4] The top two teams from each group will advance to the Super League, with the bottom two teams in each group progressing to the Plate League.[5] India are the defending champions.[6]

Qualification[edit]

The top eleven full members of the International Cricket Council (ICC) at the 2018 World Cup qualified automatically for the 2020 tournament; Ireland were the only full member to fail to qualify automatically.[1] They were joined by the winners of the five regional qualification tournaments.[7] Fifty teams took part in the qualification pathway matches during 2018 and 2019.[1] The first qualification matches took place in the Europe Division 2 group, in Essex, England, on 31 July 2018.[1] The final round of qualification fixtures took place in the Netherlands in July and August 2019.[8]

Nigeria became the first team to win their regional qualification group, and qualified for the Under-19 Cricket World Cup for the first time in their history.[9] Japan also qualified for the Under-19 Cricket World Cup for the first time in their history.[10] Japan were scheduled to play Papua New Guinea in their final qualification fixture, but Papua New Guinea forfeited the match.[11] The Papua New Guinea Cricket Board later suspended ten of the players for a year, after bringing the game into disrepute following a shoplifting incident.[12][13] Canada, Scotland and the United Arab Emirates were the remaining three teams to secure qualification.[14]
