2014 ACC Under-19 Asia Cup

The ACC Under-19 Asia Cup is a cricket tournament organised by the ACC for Under-19 teams from its member nations. It was first held in 2012 in Malaysia where the trophy was shared by India and Pakistan after the final was tied. The second edition was held in 2013/14 in UAE which was won by India.

The second tier event, called Youth Asia Cup, was held in Hong Kong in 1997 and every second year since then. It was renamed as ACC Under-19 Elite Cup in 2007. Nepal has been the most successful team in the Elite Cup, having won the tournament four times. The third tier of the tournament is called ACC Under-19 Challenge Cup and was first held in 2008 in Thailand. Saudi Arabia has been the most successful team in the Challenge Cup, having won the tournament twice.

Under-19 World Cup Qualification History[edit]

ACC Under-19 Elite Cup[edit]

One of the major roles of the ACC Under-19 Elite Cup has been to provide member nations of the ACC with the chance to qualify for the Under-19 World Cup. It was originally known as the Youth Asia Cup and, for the first two tournaments, two teams qualified directly.[1][2] During these years, teams from the EAP region took part as did Bangladesh who did not receive full member status until 2000.[3]

After Bangladesh and the EAP sides left the conmpetition the number of qualifying teams was reduced to one and remained this way until the 2007 competition.[4] Following this tournament, the ACC decided to split the teams into two divisions after the model of the men's ACC Trophy. The top division, the Elite Cup, continues to be held in two year intervals from the initial tournament. The lower division, the Challenge Cup, generally takes place in the year between Elite tournaments although the most recent edition took place in 2013 in Thailand. The winners of this tournament were Singapore.[5]
