Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Wednesday announced the South Africa under-19s squad that will take on Pakistan in a seven-match, Youth One-Day International series at home from June 22 to July 7 2019.

Bryce Parsons will captain the squad of 15.

The tour, which forms a vital part of the home side's preparation for the ICC U19 World Cup which will be hosted by South Africa early next year, will be played at Pietermaritzburg Oval and Chatsworth Oval.

CSA High Performance Manager, Vincent Barnes said: "The selection committee has selected a well-balanced team which will be up against talented and skilful opposition. The majority of the players recently toured India and also qualify to represent South Africa in the ICC U19 World Cup next year, so this will be more invaluable experience for them. I wish coach Lawrence Mahatlane and his team all the best for the series."
