REDLANDS Cricket grounds at Birkdale Road, Wellington Point have come alive over the last two weeks as some of the world's best under 19 cricketers battle it out to become the number one team in the world.
Plenty of runs have been scored, the stumps have been rattled and some fine fielding have all been a major part in the games that we have hosted.
And our volunteers have done a superb job catering for these hungry young cricketers from various parts of the world.
All the games are one day, with each side able to bowl 50 overs.
The highlight on Tuesday was the great batting display by the South Africa team who scored 359 runs, with two of their young players scoring centuries against an undermanned Namibia side who were dismissed for 158.
Redlands City Mayor Karen Williams and local Councillor Wendy Boglary have been on hand during the World Cup games to present player of the day awards.
The Plate quarter finals between Scotland and Zimbabwe will be played at Redlands on Sunday, August 19, Nepal will take on Sri Lanka on Monday, August 21. Another match will be played Tuesday, August 22, with a semi-final game on Thursday, August 23 ending our involvement in the World Cup.
Spectators are welcome to come along and watch the games which start at 9.30am.
