It gives players an unrivaled experience of global events, a real flavor of international cricket at senior level and a glimpse into what life as one of the worlds best is really like.”This event plays an important role in developing the participating teenagers into international professionals, teaching them invaluable lessons in comradery, discipline, leadership, playing under pressure and of course in the spirit of the game.”A host of past and present stars have come through the U19s since its inception in 1988. The fact that a number of current captains including your very own Kane Williamson, Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, Joe Root, Sarfraz Ahmed, Dinesh Chandimal and Eoin Morgan have all played in the event demonstrates the calibre of cricket we have come to expect at this event.”advertisementNew Zealand all-rounder Anderson remembered how the tournament helped shape his career.Anderson: “It is an honour for me to be associated with this tournament as its Brand Ambassador. I played in two U19 World Cups ? in 2008 and 2010 ? and can?t forget the experience of playing with the upcoming best from around the world.”I was lucky to have figured in the tournament along with players like Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, Kane Williamson and Joe Root, all of who have gone on to lead their respective sides in world cricket. The tournament provides players with many learnings which hold them in good stead as they develop into top-class cricketers.”Details of the Trophy Tour for the tournament were also revealed during the event, which was attended by current players from the New Zealand and the Windies sides, who are due to play in the first match of their two-Test series at Wellingtons Basin Reserve from tomorrow.The ICC U19 Cricket World Cup Trophy Tour will commence in Wellington on December 1 and after several school and club visits to create awareness about the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup and to drive attendances, will culminate in Lincoln on December 13.The West Indies are the defending champions of the tournament, which is widely acknowledged as a platform to inspire the next generation of cricketers and fans.Australia and India have been most successful in the tournament, winning the title three times each. Pakistan are the only side to have defended the title when they emerged victorious in the 2004 and 2006 editions while England and South Africa are the other teams to have won the tournament.

NIZHNY NOVGOROD, Russia (AP) — With the country’s most one-sided World Cup victory, England advanced to the last 16 with a game by spare.Harry Kane scored a hat trick in Sunday’s 6-1 rout of Panama, giving England its biggest victory margin at the World Cup in its highest-scoring game since 1966.That previous high-scoring affair turned out well, too, with England beating Germany 4-2 to win its only World Cup title.Four years ago, England failed to win a match at the World Cup and was eliminated in the group stage.On Sunday, England was taking on a weaker team: A Panama side making its World Cup debut. The loss eliminated Panama and Tunisia, while putting Belgium into the round of 16.Kane’s three goals moved him into the lead with five at this year’s tournament, one more than Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku after two games.John Stones headed in two goals and Jesse Lingard curled in another to ensure England goes into its Group G finale against Belgium level on points and with the same goal difference.England’s Jesse Lingard reacts as he celebrates with teammate England’s Raheem Sterling, left, after scoring his team’s third goal during the group G match between England and Panama at the 2018 soccer World Cup at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod , Russia, Sunday, June 24, 2018. (AP Photo/Matthias Schrader)In Russia, England has been trying to cast aside the negativity of the past while remolding the image of the team on and off the field. Even locals were supporting the team in Nizhny Novgorod, despite the bitter diplomatic relations between Russia and Britain.The egos who dominated in England’s celebrity-obsessed, underperforming Golden Generation in the first decade of century have gone. The joy and togetherness in the squad — the second-youngest in Russia — becomes clear in the goal celebrations.Where past England teams might have wilted in warm temperatures, this one pressed with high-tempo intensity to ensure there was no need to scrape a victory like on Monday against Tunisia.England picked up where it left off in Volgograd, with a corner from Kieran Trippier headed into the net in the eighth minute. It wasn’t Kane on the end this time but Stones, who was left unmarked to score his first international goal.Kane didn’t have to wait long to add to his tally, converting from the penalty spot in the 22nd after Lingard was brought down by Fidel Escobar.Lingard did get on the scoresheet in the 36th with the pick of the goals. The Manchester United forward played a 1-2 with Ashley Young and exchanged passes with Raheem Sterling before shifting the ball across and bending it into the top corner.England players run to teammate John Stones after he scored his team’s first goal during the group G match between England and Panama at the 2018 soccer World Cup at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod , Russia, Sunday, June 24, 2018. (AP Photo/Matthias Schrader)The fourth goal was the culmination of a well-worked free kick with Sterling’s close-range header parried by goalkeeper Jaime Penedo. Stones was primed to follow-up, giving the defender his second.However much they tried, Panama struggled to block England’s route to goal. Anibal Gody resorted to trying to wrestle Kane to the ground, only to concede a penalty that was converted by the Tottenham striker.England was merciless. At 5-0, the job was complete by halftime.Chasing the golden boot, Kane relied on his heel to complete his hat trick by getting the faintest of touches to divert Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s shot into the net.England could afford to ease up and preserve energy but it cost the team first place on goal difference. Felipe Baloy slid to meet Ricardo Avila’s free kick and score Panama’s first World Cup goal.Panama, beaten by Belgium 3-0 in the opening game, finally had something to celebrate, briefly.KEY TO SUCCESSEngland had spells of sloppy defending that could be punished by stronger teams, like Belgium. But by taking their chances and exploiting a porous defense, England showed what it is capable of.GROUP DYNAMICSThe winner of the England-Belgium match on Thursday in Kaliningrad will win Group G.

Misick in a news release shares with media that next week, a constitutional case will be launched before Chief Justice, Margaret Ramsey-Hale. The applicant, Michael Misick, through his Attorneys-at-Law, Ralph A. Thorne, QC and Beryn Duncanson are challenging the constitutionality of the court headed by retired Jamaican judge Harrison. The lawyers are also challenging the power of the court to order a trial without a jury. Misick contends the circumstances in the TCI did not warrant this move. “We are contending that the government has established a special court akin to those of other countries that have experienced severe, social, political and military unrest. Unless it can be demonstrated that this kind of upheaval has taken place in Turks & Caicos, every citizen of this country remains equally entitled to the protection of the constitution.” The attorneys for Misick, the first and a former Premier of the Turks and Caicos explain that others are being given rights that Michael Eugene Misick himself is being denied. QC Thorne calls the constitutional challenge case important and regretful adding that it is wrong that the report from Sir Robin Auld and the Commission of Inquiry he led in 2009 have dictated some contents of the 2011 TCI Constitution. “It is a matter of some regret that a document which sought to prescribe solutions to a political crisis has transfigured portions of itself into to a legal regime of trial in a non-traditional court and without a jury. It seems horribly wrong in a stable democracy with a strong inheritance of English legal values and we hope to persuade the court to a similar view.” Again this argument will be laid out in the Provo Supreme Court next week.
