Under 19 Cricket World Cup 2012 Squads

All 16 squads have now been named ahead of the ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup 2012, which takes place in Queensland, Australia, from 11-26 August.

Australia will defend the title it won in Lincoln, New Zealand, in 2010, and will not only aim to win the trophy for the fourth time in nine events, it will also try to match Pakistan’s effort of winning back-to-back titles.

Pakistan won the tournaments in 2004 and 2006 in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, respectively.

India has also won the tournament twice – in 2002 in Sri Lanka under Mohamamd Kaif and in 2008 under the leadership of Virat Kohli while England’s Owais Shah put his hands on the trophy in Johannesburg when South Africa staged the event in 1998.

Tatenda Taibu quits cricket for Church aged 29

Former Zimbabwe national cricket captain Tatenda Taibu has decided to retire from the sport to devote his life to the church, Zimbabwe Cricket announced Monday.

“I just feel that my true calling now lies in doing the Lord’s work and although I am fortunate and proud to have played for my country, the time has come for me to put my entire focus on that part of my life,” said Taibu in a statement issued by Zimbabwe Cricket.

The 29-year-old made his international debut in 2001, and became team captain three years later – the youngest in the country’s history.  He has played 28 Tests and 150 ODIs for Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwean Robin Brown joins Kenya coaching staff

Cricket Kenya has appointed former Zimbabwe cricket coach Robin Brown as head of its national elite programme.

Brown has been appointed to oversee Cricket Kenya’s talent development programmes from grass roots through to Elite level.

61-year-old Brown is a Level Three coach and has extensive experience in playing and coaching at international level having captained his country and appeared in two World Cups as a player and coached the Zimbabwe national side at the T20 World Cup.

He has been heavily involved in development and high performance work in Zimbabwe for many years coaching National age group teams and one of the new franchise teams in domestic competition. He also has a very strong background in pitch preparation and facilities development.

Cricket Kenya Chief Executive Tom Sears said, “We are delighted Robin has joined Cricket Kenya in such a key position and have no doubt his knowledge and experience will be a huge benefit in many areas.

“Robin is a vastly experienced coach who has played and coached at the highest level and is highly respected in the game.

“His primary role will be to ensure we are identifying the best players in our system from junior level right through to our Emerging Players Squad and ensuring they receive all the coaching and support they need to fulfil their potential.”

Brendan Taylor signs up with Chittagong Kings

Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor will play in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2012 after signing up with Chittagong Kings.

“We have just signed for Brendan to join the Chittagong Kings for the last three games and the finals in the BPL,” Taylor’s agent said.

“The deal was negotiated directly by us with the owner and CEO, Sameer Quader Chowdhury, of the Chittagong Kings.”

Chittagong are currently in third place, with eight points, two behind joint leaders, Khulna Royal Bengals and Duronto Rajshahi.

In 2011, Taylor became the first Zimbabwean batsman to hit back-to-back One-Day International centuries (128 not out and 107 not out), achieved against New Zealand in October.

He was selected to play Twenty20 cricket for the Wellington cricket team as an overseas player in New Zealand’s HRV Twenty20 Cup in December 2011.

Taylor has played 54 Twenty20s in which he has scored 1417 runs at an average of 31 and with a strike-rate of 122.04.

Andrew Ellis to replace injured Dean Brownlie for T20s

Canterbury Wizards all-rounder Andrew Ellis has been added to the New Zealand Twenty20 squad for the series against Zimbabwe.

Ellis, who made his international debut in the three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe, replaces Dean Brownlie, who fractured his finger while fielding in Whangarei.

New Zealand coach John Wright said that Ellis deserves to be included in the T20 squad following good performances in the HRV Cup and showing promise in the first two ODI matches.

“We would like to give Andrew the opportunity to show us his hitting power as he has not had the chance to spend a lot of time at the crease in this series,” said Wright.

It’s unfortunate for Brownlie, who will miss both the ODI and Twenty20 series against South Africa after a hand specialist confirmed he was likely to be out for a month.

New Zealand T20 squad: Brendon McCullum (capt), Michael Bates, Doug Bracewell, Andrew Ellis, Colin de Grandhomme, James Franklin, Martin Guptill, Ronnie Hira, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Rob Nicol, Jacob Oram, Tim Southee, Kane Williamson.
