Australia announced their squad for upcoming u19 world cup.

Australia has completed the selection of its squad for the upcoming ICC Under-19 World Cup in January, aiming for a fourth title in the men’s competition. The 15-member squad includes several players who participated in the recent U19 Ashes series, where Australia secured eight victories compared to England’s three across all three formats.

The U19 Male National Championships concluded in Albury on Thursday, providing players with a final opportunity to showcase their skills and make an impression on selectors ahead of the World Cup in South Africa.

“It’s been exciting to see the amount of talent”

“It’s been exciting to see the amount of talent on display at this year’s U19 Male National Championships,” Cricket Australia’s Head of National Development Sonya Thompson said in a statement.

“We’ve seen some fantastic individual performances and I’d like to congratulate NSW Metro on their win.

“The National Youth Selection Panel worked closely with State Talent Managers to select the World Cup Squad. Consideration is given to performances across a variety of competitions. Many of those in the World Cup squad also had development opportunities during tours to Sri Lanka and England this year.”

Australia Under 19 World Cup squad: 

Lachlan Aitken, Charlie Anderson, Harkirat Bajwa, Mahli Beardman, Tom Campbell, Harry Dixon, Ryan Hicks, Sam Konstas, Rafael MacMillan, Aidan O’Connor, Harjas Singh, Tom Straker, Callum Vidler, Corey Wasley, Hugh Weibgen.

Sam Konstas was named player of the final as NSW Metro won the title, with Aiden O’Connor earning a spot in the squad after being awarded the player of the tournament in the U19 Male National Championships. Harry Dixon, who has previous U19 centuries, also made the cut with his impressive 222 runs in the championships.

Queensland allrounder Hugh Weibgen, initially ruled out of the U19 National Championships due to a back injury, has been included in the squad after previously leading the side in England. The captain for Australia’s U19 squad is yet to be announced. Notably, players like Sam Konstas and Harry Dixon hold Big Bash contracts, and Mahli Beardman from Western Australia has already made his debut in the Marsh Cup, showcasing the squad’s experience in senior professional cricket.
