The players are out in the middle, marking their run-ups and their crease positions, and there is a significant number of Afghanistan fans signing their national anthem. Here we go.

News from the center: Pakistan have won the toss and elect to bat against Afghanistan in their opening clash of Under 19 World Cricket at Whangarei in New Zealand.

Afghanistan captain Naveen ul Haq says: “The pitch was looking good and we would have also batted first on this wicket, but the toss was not in our control. We would like to restrict them as low as we can, around 200. It’s a good wicket to bat on and we hope to chase down the total. We have been here in New Zealand one month now and have done our homework. We have done everything we can and now need to deliver on the field.”
