The highly anticipated ICC Under-19 World Cup gets underway as 16 nations from across the globe compete for the biggest prize.

It’s an opportunity for the future stars of world cricket to get themselves noticed and it’s also a chance for the watching public to get a first glimpse of the next Sachin Tendulkar or Jacques Kallis.

The 16 countries competing in this year’s event break down in four groups of four, which are as follows:

Group A: India, Pakistan, Scotland, Papua New Guinea.

Group B: Australia, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Namibia.

Group C: South Africa, West Indies, Zimbabwe, Canada.

Group D: New Zealand, England, Sri Lanka, UAE.

Two teams from each group will progress to the quarter-finals stage and then it is a knockout competition from then onward to determine the winner.

The young Indian side are the favourites to win the tournament, but there are several other serious contenders with many hotly tipping Pakistan, South Africa and host nation UAE.

It’s the 10th edition of the Under-19 World Cup and the ICC are predicting the biggest following yet, with several former stars signed up to cover the games.

This includes Harsha Bhogle, Sanjay Manjrekar, Damien Martyn, Danny Morrison, Jonty Rhodes, Wasim Akram and Alan Wilkins.
