Australian Squad For Under-19 World Cup, 2018

Australian Under-19 cricket team represents Australia in cricket at Under-19 level and will be looking to secure a record fourth Under-19 World Cup in the upcoming edition. The team will be led by Jason Sangha in the twelfth edition of the tournament, scheduled to take place in New Zealand. The team from Down Under did not play in the eleventh edition of the tournament in 2016 over security concerns.

Along with India, Australia is the only team to have won the World Cup thrice. In 1988, which was the inaugural edition of the tournament, they won the title under the captaincy of Geoff Parker and in 2008, they won it under Cameron White’s leadership and in 2010 under the captaincy of Mitchell Marsh.
