The week in review

27th January to 2nd February

We review cricket further this week and on this occasion we dedicate it to Nigeria and Japan. The ICC U19 Cricket World Cup is currently underway in South Africa and through a qualification process, these two nations are part of the tournament. Although each match they have featured in has been very one-sided, it is still a major achievement to have qualified to play at a cricket world cup tournament. Nigeria in particular is a nation with so much sporting talent available. It simply requires greater professional structures to be in place and a nursing of talent. We hope that both nations build on this experience and equally hope to see them participate again at future cricket events. As for the U19 World Cup, the tournament has reached the quarter-final stages for the Plate and Cup (Super League) competitions. The teams in the Super League are India, Australia, West Indies, New Zealand, Bangladesh and South Africa. Staying in South Africa and from Saturday for a two-week period, Red Bull will present an annual event that is also one of the main Kite Sports tournaments of the season. The Red Bull King of the Air 2020 features at Kite Beach in Cape Town. The first major rugby union tournaments of the year start on Saturday. These are the Rugby Europe Championship and Six Nations for both men and women. The Australian Tennis Open has reached the final week with qualification for the fourth round. Local stars Ashleigh Barty and Nick Kyrgios are still in contention for the final. 

There are a number of World Championships featuring this week. Milton in Canada has this year been chosen for the UCI Para-Track World Championships from Thursday to Sunday. Staying with cycling and as the cyclo-cross world tour has now completed, Dübendorf in Switzerland hosts the UCI Cyclo-Cross World Championships from Saturday to Sunday. The International Ice Hockey Federation present two tournaments both starting on Tuesday. They are for the U20 Men at Gangneung in South Korea and the U18 Women at Mexico City. Both events are for Division II, Group B. St. Sebastian in Austria will host the FIL Junior Luge World Championship over the weekend, while over in Davos the Winter Pentathlon will also feature over that period.
