The four associate teams’ 2024 Men’s Under-19 World Cup has come to an end, with varying degrees of success for each squad…


Group Stage: vs New Zealand, lost by 64 runs.

Group Stage: vs Pakistan, lost by 7 wickets (with 14 balls remaining).

Group Stage: vs Afghanistan, won by 1 wicket (with 32 balls remaining).

Super Sixes: vs Bangladesh, lost by 5 wickets (with 148 balls remaining).

Super Sixes: vs India, lost by 132 runs.

According to the tournament results, Nepal was the most successful of the four teams; they were the only ones to get past the group stage or beat a full member. In a tight, low-scoring match against Afghanistan, the Young Rhinos managed to cross the finish line by one wicket while chasing 145 runs.

The hero of the event was seamer Aakash Chand, who bowled out the Afghans after grabbing five wickets. Captain Dev Khanal led with a solid 57 to bring Nepal close, and then the Rhinos were dramatically carried home by the tail.

Nepal fielded a team that had a number of veterans, including Gulshan Jha, who spearheaded the bowling assault and claimed six wickets. With 185 runs in 10 senior ODIs, Dev Khanal led Nepal’s run charts. With nine wickets apiece, Chand and Subash Bhandari shared the best wicket take award.

The young Rhinos were outmatched by four full-member opponents despite the exciting triumph. India, Bangladesh, and New Zealand all won handily, and although Nepal managed to hold off Pakistan for 152 runs, they were unable to secure enough wickets to present a serious threat.

Nepal played less competitive games as a result of the revised format, and they were unable to play teams like Ireland or Zimbabwe.

Still, Nepal might live to regret its achievements. Despite being in the top 11, they are not eligible to directly qualify for the next U19 World Cup as associate members. Nepal will take a step back before attempting to qualify for 2026, in keeping with the precedent set in the previous cycle, where UAE finished ninth overall but were compelled to return to regional qualification.

However, as a result of their victory over Afghanistan, which eliminated the full member, Nepal will now share the lowest ranking full member position in the region with Afghanistan. Paradoxically, Nepal has made it more difficult to requalify.
