KwaZulu-Natal batsman Chad Bowes will lead an experienced 15-man South Africa squad at the upcoming Under-19 World Cup in Australia. The team, which has toured England and Zimbabwe and hosted Pakistan and Sri Lanka, has undergone extensive training at the High Performance Centre in Pretoria under a team of coaches, including former South Africa senior-team coach Ray Jennings.
South Africa Under-19 squad for the World Cup
Bowes takes over from Gauteng wicketkeeper batsman Quinton de Kock as captain. De Kock, who was the team's leading run-scorer in their previous assignment - a three-match ODI series against Pakistan that they lost 2-1 - is still a part of the squad but minus the extra responsibility.
South Africa have been placed in Group D along with Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Namibia. They will play Bangladesh in their opening match on August 12. The tournament runs from August 11 to August 26 in Queensland, Australia.
