The ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup’s plate quarter-final matches see Nigeria take on Sri Lanka, and England face off with Japan today (1pm PST) in South Africa.
It is pertinent to mention that plate quarter-finals are not the actual quarter-finals. Today’s matches are being played among the teams that did not make it out of the group stages.
The plate fixtures will decide which of the teams not contending for the title anymore finish where.
Sri Lanka U-19 and Japan U-19 had finished third and fourth respectively in Group A, whereas England U-19 and Nigeria U-19 had finished third and fourth respectively in Group B.
The remainder of the two plate quarter-finals will be staged tomorrow, when the actual quarter-finals — called the Super League quarter-finals — will also be played.
Pakistan U-19 team will next be in action on Friday when they take on Afghanistan in Super League quarter-final 4 in Benoni.
