Rain in Christchurch forced the abandonment of the West Indies' Under-19 cricket team's warm-up match against Zimbabwe on Tuesday. The young Windies beat Papua New Guinea by 7 wickets on Sunday in their first warm-up encounter.
The tournament commences this Saturday where the defending champions West Indies will face New Zealand at the Bay Oval. The West Indies are one of six teams to win the U-19 World Cup. The others are Australia, India, Pakistan, South Africa and England.
