The biennial event will feature the rising stars of 16 cricketing nations battling it out in 41 matches over 24 days, with five venues featuring the future of the international game. The venues are Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein, Kimberley Oval in Kimberley, JB Marks Oval in Potchefstroom, Buffalo Park in East London and Willowmoore Park in Benoni.

But before the action begins, the teams will play two warm-up matches each to acquaint themselves with the conditions and finetune their preparations for the big tournament. The warm-up fixtures will take place in Johannesburg and Pretoria between 13 and 17 January.

The opening day of the warm-up matches will see the Pakistan colts taking on South Africa in St Stithians, Johannesburg. While Pakistan have named Saad Baig as their captain and will seek a strong start to their campaign, hosts South Africa will look to take advantage of home conditions. 

Meanwhile, South Africa have relieved their captain David Keeger from captaincy duties ahead of the warm-up match. The reason is his comment pertaining to the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict in Gaza.

"As is the case with all such events, CSA has been receiving regular security and risk updates regarding the World Cup. We have been advised that protests related to the war in Gaza can be anticipated at the venues for the tournament," Cricket South Africa said in a statement.

"We have also been advised that they are likely to focus on the position of the SA Under-19 captain, David Teeger, and that there is a risk that they could result in conflict or even violence, including between rival groups of protestors.

"CSA has a primary duty to safeguard the interests and safety of all those involved in the World Cup and must accordingly respect the expert advice of those responsible for the safety of participants and spectators.

"In all the circumstances, CSA has decided that David should be relieved of the captaincy for the tournament. This is in the best interests of all the players, the SA U19 team and David himself," the statement added.

The new captain is yet to be announced.
