Tim Southee - best U-19 cricketer in the world

Tim Southee was named player of the tournament for the U-19 World Cup. It is pretty hard to argue with 17 wickets at 6.64 and an economy rate of 2.52 runs per over. Cricinfo also identified him as a player to watch.

I seem to recall that a few years ago a young guy made the national side and was then added to a touring squad to England on the strength of some fine U-19 performances - and that bloke is now a national selector. Don't be too surprised to see Southee in a black blazer come May.
