I think it would be a golden Oppurtunity for Afghanistan under 19 Cricket team to win this title, Unfourtunitely we did not win the ICC world Cup qualifier round for 2011 world cup, but now we hope to win under 19 world cup qualifier round, I watch the player of under 19 from very close in Afghanistan National Ground, they are smartly outstanding, and the way they hard word and show their effert are brilliant, lets wait for the crucial movements which is comming, thanks Cricinfo and Canadian Cricket Committee to host this tournament. the players will enjoy the beautful and lovely enviroment in Canada.

Israfeel: Afghanistan and Hong Kong have won through already, as have Uganda and Sierra Leone from the Africa section. The six others will come from eliminators in America, Europe and SE Asia (two apiece). There will be 10 teams in the competition. The top five will then go on to join the 10 Test nations plus Kenya for a 16-team finals in Kenya (Nairobi, Mombasa and Nakuru) in Jan/Feb 2010. I think it's something to look forward to!

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
