Harkirat Bajwa, Harjas Singh named in Australian squad for 2024 Men’s U19 World Cup

MELBOURNE: The Youth Selection Panel (YSP) picked a 15-player squad including two from Indian heritage, Harkirat Bajwa and Harjas Singh, following the conclusion of the 2023 Under 19 Male National Championships in Albury last week.

Australia’s squad will be coached by Anthony Clark, who has also led the Under 19 squad on recent tours of England and Sri Lanka.

January’s World Cup will be held in South Africa after the ICC Board confirmed Sri Lanka would be replaced as hosts last month.

Sonya Thompson, Cricket Australia’s Head of National Development, said:

“It’s been exciting to see the amount of talent on display at this year’s Under 19 Male National Championships. We’ve seen some fantastic individual performances and I’d like to congratulate NSW Metro on their win.

“The upcoming Under 19 World Cup provides players with an excellent development opportunity, and we look forward to watching this squad perform on the world stage.

“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.

“Inevitably, there were difficult selection decisions, but we will continue to support and monitor the development of all players in our pathway systems.”
