Carlton Bernadus, the Deputy National Game Development Manager of the Bangladesh Cricket Board has told the Sri Lankan newspaper the Daily Mirror that the Bangladesh U-19 squad has a lot of cricket scheduled ahead of next years U-19 World Cup.

The U-19 World Cup was initially meant to be hosted in Kenya, however at the last minute it was relocated to New Zealand for February 2010.

One of the teams that the Bangladesh U-19's will be meeting in their preparations is the Zimbabwe U-19 side.

It is expected that the Zimbabwe U-19's will be touring Bangladesh in November. They will play one three day match followed by five one-day matches.

Traditionally the Zimbabwe U-19's have punched above their weight in the age-group competitions, however in recent years they have struggled on the international stage.
