ICC Under-19 World Cup Qualifier, 2011 / Commentary

Good morning and welcome to our ball-by-ball coverage of this match with your host and commentator, Callum Stewart. I've got Nepal v Vanuatu from the YMCA Dublin, here in the U19 World Cup Qualifiers in Ireland, which is turning out to be a fascinating tournament, where only the top six teams in a league of ten will quality for Australia 2012.

Check out our bulletin from yesterdays matches, along with the points table which is all very close right now. This is the last round of matches to be held in Dublin, and tomorrow the teams will travel up to Derry in Northern Ireland for the second half of the tournament.

The weather is overcast, but dry at the moment. Both teams are going through their warm-up routines. Some locals have told me that there will be showers this morning.

Nepal have won the toss and are batting.
