Sri Lanka lost their opening match v Afghanistan. That result seems like an upset, although the 2016 tournament saw Afghanistan finish above Zimbabwe, South Africa and New Zealand, and the way the country is progressing at cricket means that any results like this could be seen as commonplace in a few year’s time

I didn't think I could be surprised at the progress of Afghanistan's cricket. However, it was a great achievement for them to not only beat a nation with many decades more cricket renown than themselves in their quarter-final v New Zealand, but to do so by 202 runs. Afghanistan are guaranteed to finish at least 4th, and are within two wins of causing shockwaves by becoming U-19 world champions!

England’s next match will be on Saturday evening at Queenstown against whoever loses the quarter-final between India and Bangladesh which takes place 48 hours previously. Victory for England would take them to a 5th-place play-off on the evening of Tuesday 30th January, while defeat would mean they would have a 7th-place play-off on the evening of Wednesday 31st January. Whatever happens, they will end the tournament having played every match at Queenstown, despite six other venues being used

Both of England’s remaining matches are likely to be on Sky, as ICC’s website marks Saturday’s match and the 5th- and 7th-place play-offs as Broadcast Fixtures.
