The wicket at the Providence Stadium is batting friendly. The ball comes on to the bat nicely and batters will enjoy playing shots. Although, the quicker bowlers will have some help as they are likely to get movement with the new ball early on. Further, the spinners are expected to find some assistance off the surface in the later part of the game. On this wicket, the ideal option for the team that wins the toss is to bowl first and try to chase the runs down later on.
IN-U19 vs SA-U19 Match Prediction
India U19 have been dominant in all aspects in their warm-up matches. They batted well in the first game to post a big total and then defend it against West Indies. Against Australia, the batters did well in the second innings, comfortably chasing the score down. Meanwhile, South Africa U19 have also done well with the ball. However, their batters did seem to struggle a bit despite their win. Against a quality Indian attack, it will be challenging for them. That said, India U19 seem to have an edge over their opponents for this match.
