ICC Under-19 World Cup Qualifier, 2011 / Commentary

9.45am - Good morning and welcome from me Callum Stewart, to Limavady CC in Northern Ireland for this final U19 World Cup Qualifier between Nepal and USA. It has been a fascinating round robin tournament where the top six teams at the end of today will progress to Australia 2012. Scotland, Ireland and Nepal have all qualified and Scotland will take home the trophy if they manage to beat Vanuatu today. Ireland and Nepal have a chance of taking victory on run-rate if they win and Vanuatu shock Scotland to claim their first win of the tournament.

ICC Under-19 World Cup Qualifier 2011 Points Table

Any three from Canada, PNG, Namibia, USA and Afghanistan can still go through, with four of those teams being separated by nett run-rate alone. Afghanistan play Canada in a head-to-head game for a spot, while PNG have a tough task against Ireland. Namibia are the team lacking behind on points and must beat Kenya and hope other results go their way. A win for USA should see them through but nothing can be guaranteed as the table is so tight. It's likely that one team will miss out on the World Cup through run-rate alone.

10.15am - I am pleased to report that the sun is shining and we should be starting on time. We will be bringing you every ball live from the ground so don't go anywhere. Make sure to keep an eye on the rest of today's games.

Nepal have won the toss and will bat.
