The 2018 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup was an international limited-overs cricket tournament that was held in New Zealand from 13 January to 3 February 2018.[1] It was the twelfth edition of the Under-19 Cricket World Cup, and the third to be held in New Zealand (after the 2002 and 2010 events). New Zealand was the first country to host the event three times.[2] The opening ceremony took place on 7 January 2018.[3] The West Indies were the defending champions.[4] However, they failed to defend their title, after losing their first two group fixtures.[5]

Following the group stage fixtures, Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan and South Africa had all qualified for the Super League quarter-final stage of the tournament. The other eight teams moved to the Plate League to determine their final placements in the competition.[6][7][8][9] Sri Lanka went on to win the Plate League, giving them a final position of ninth overall in the tournament.[10]

In the first Super League semi-final, Australia beat Afghanistan by 6 wickets to progress to the final.[11] In the second semi-final, India beat Pakistan by 203 runs to advance into the final.[12] In the third-place playoff, no play was possible due to rain and a wet outfield. Pakistan therefore finished in third place, as they finished their group ahead of Afghanistan on net run rate.[13] In the final, India beat Australia by 8 wickets to win their fourth Under-19 World Cup, the most by any side.[14]
