Both the 7th-place play-off between England and New Zealand and the semi-final between India and Pakistan are being televised. Interestingly, Sky are showing the semi-final on their main cricket channel, while the play-off is available on the red button (it might be available on another Sky channel, but I can’t be bothered to check).

Savin Perera has been recalled afTer playing the first two matches, while Jack Davies’s inclusion makes him one of four players to have played in all six of England’s matches. Ethan Bamber and Luke Hollman have been left out, so will end the tournament having made four appearances. Bamber will end the tournament with excellent figures of 8 wickets at an average of 13.50, economy of 3.85 and strike rate of 21, while Hollman was similarly as impressive with 6 wickets at an average of 20.83, economy of 4.14 and strike rate of 30.1.

With England currently 49-3 with Perera out and Davies promoted up the order, hopefully they can recover to avoid losing all three knockout matches. The commentators are saying that 215 could be a good score, which is unsurprising considering Australia's 127 was more than enough to beat England at this Queenstown ground in the quarter-final.

England U-19 head coach Jon Lewis has spoken about Ethan Bamber.

The final will be contested by Australia and India, starting at 1:00am GMT on Saturday.

Jon Lewis really should take up a career in motivational speaking.

At one point I nearly woke up.

I sincerely hope Jon Lewis is a better coach than he is a talker.

He sounds like a teacher at parents evening when he isn't quite sure which of his pupils he is talking about.

Personally think the U19 set up is a total waste of money for English cricket..Would love to know total ECB annual budget including Salaries, travel , accom, venues and expenses , not juat for World cups biut also the home gigs,
Not enough wins and results ovet the years to justify spend.

I would have thought that ECB would get into trouble with ICC if they paid less attention to U-19 cricket, especially at World Cups. If nothing else, England U-19s give opportunities for youngsters to receive recognition for their progress in the sport and to gain experience of touring and playing at a World Cup (which could be useful considering a fair few England U-19 players go on to represent the senor side), while the set-up also gives opportunities for coaches to progress their career. Surely ECB and the other boards around the world get some funding from ICC to help them go on U-19 tours.

An England U-19 call-up for a World Cup seems to guarantee touring experience, as none of the 12 tournaments to date have been staged here despite the country surely being equipped to do so, while the 2020 tournament will be held in South Africa and the 2022 tournament will be in West Indies.

Jon Lewis’s thoughts on Jack Davies and Savin Perera can now be heard.

All sounds very ECB.. JW! India seem to take this alot more serious both with player and coaching selections. The fact that the BCCI rewards the team and staff financially shows they planned for it and in it to win it!
