Bangladesh U-19 team will take on Pakistan counterparts in their first warm-up match of the ICC U-19 World Cup at Warner Park, Basseterre in St Kitts today.

Ahead of the match, the junior Tigers took part in their first training session at Warner Park after completing the mandatory three days of quarantine.

Bangladesh will then face Zimbabwe in their second warm-up match at the same venue on January 11 before they take on England on January 16 in their opening Group A match of the 14th edition of the tournament.

Canada and the United Arab Emirates are the other two teams in Group A.

Bangladesh emerged champions in the 2020 edition of the ICC U-19 World Cup after defeating India by three wickets at Potchefstroom in South Africa.
