This is about the U-19 team, playing against the West Indies in the World Cup. During the first innings, West Indies batsman Kirk McKenzie played the anchor role and was dismissed one short of a well-deserved century.

This has garnered praise for the NZ U-19 team from across the world. 

Needless to say, the future of this game is in good hands.
