Opta official data provider for the ICC U19 World Cup

As part of the longstanding partnership between Opta and the International Cricket Council, Opta will be the official data supplier for this year’s ICC U19 World Cup from the 13th January – 3rd February. 

New Zealand will be the first country to host the event on three occasions when they welcome the tournament back to the southern hemisphere this month. Australia look like strong contenders to follow in the footsteps of their senior side’s Ashes success and challenge for their fourth ICC U19 CWC title. Reigning champions West Indies, 2016 runners-up India, England and South Africa are also thought to be contenders at this year’s competition.  

All 48 games in the twelfth edition of the limited overs competition will be covered by Opta in full detail providing a wealth of tournament and historical data. Opta’s extensive product suite of feeds, widgets and data editorial support will be available for the ICC’s digital platforms, official partners and other media coverage outlets.

As part of the data partnership with the ICC, Opta collects detailed ball-by-ball data for all events in the ICC calendar including the ICC Men’s and Women’s World Cups, Champions Trophy and Women’s World Twenty20.
