AUS U19 vs WI U19 Dream11 Team Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Hints Australia vs West Indies: Captain, Probable Playing 11s, Team News; Injury Updates For the ICC U19 World Cup at Providence Stadium, Guyana, 7:30 PM IST January 14

West Indies Under-19 cricket coach Floyd Reifer isn’t reading too much into the two warm-up defeats ahead of his team’s inaugural match of the ICC Under-19 World Cup against Australia in Georgetown, Guyana, later on Friday (January 14), saying it’s just a matter of time before the ‘talented bunch’ starts ticking the right boxes. Hosts West Indies lost by big margins to India and South Africa in the build-up and would be hoping to put their indifferent form in the warm-ups behind them when they begin their Group D engagements against Australia at the Providence Stadium.

In both the warm-up games, Reifer’s side failed to cross the 200-barrier but the coach said he wouldn’t put much emphasis on the losses. “I would say the warm-up games that we have played were two low-scoring games, so I wouldn`t want to put too much emphasis on that. I think the batting comes down to the mindset of the players in terms of spending some more time at the crease and building some more partnerships.

“Yes, we know as a batting unit there are certain things we want to accomplish, guys building on starts and these are things we are discussing. I’m confident in the lads, we have a talented bunch of cricketers, we have some good batters here, it’s just a matter for us now to just do the one percenters right and then we will respond with some consistency,” said Reifer, who was appointed head coach of the Under-19 team exactly a year ago.

Australia also have plenty of questions to answer after a nine-wicket defeat to India in their only warm-up encounter. But with two teams progressing from Group D, which also includes Scotland and Sri Lanka, their captain Cooper Connolly is confident about his side’s chances.
