The hosting rights of Under-19 World Cup have been snatched from Sri Lanka. Earlier the Under-19 World Cup was to be held in this country. Now the Under-19 World Cup will be organized in another country. ICC has taken this big decision for a special reason.

Under-19 World Cup snatched from Sri Lanka

ICC has shifted the Under-19 World Cup from Sri Lanka to South Africa. The ICC Board has taken this decision in view of the administrative uncertainty in Sri Lankan cricket.
