ACC UNDER 16 EASTERN REGION – CHIANGMAI, THAILAND – April 18 to 29, 2019
The SCA have selected a 14-member squad which will represent Singapore U16s at the upcoming ACC U16s Eastern Region Trophy which is to be hosted in Chiang Mai, Thailand from the 18th -29th April 2019.
The team will be led by Raoul Sharma, who interestingly is already a seasoned campaigner with the U16s having represented the same in 2017 at the last ACC U16s tournament.
While Raoul will already have had a taste of representative cricket for Singapore at age group level, the rest of the squad will be experiencing their first tournament at international level.
Singapore will come up against Hong Kong, Bhutan and China in Group B after which the top two will play crossover semi-finals with winners moving on to the finals.
Singapore U16s have had a proud history at the ACC U16s Trophy having won it in 2007 and then famously in 2010 when they beat powerhouses Nepal in their own backyard.
Singapore made the finals in 2017 against habitual finalists Nepal, but lost the encounter to finish second overall.
Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal and hosts Thailand will make up the teams in Group A.
GROUP – A| NEPAL, MALAYSIA, THAILAND, MYANMAR GROUP – B | SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, CHINA, BHUTAN
