    I don't think any of us should be surprised that a team full of teenagers who will get drafted in the next year or two will be too good for any overseas team.

    Such games remain useful for gauging any improvement in overseas teams over the course of time.

    The Kiwis were getting closer and closer each year. I’m surprised by the margin.

    Worthy of a mention.

    The 2018 New Zealand U18 side have created history by winning their first ever game on Australian soil after a thrilling contest against a highly talented Mornington Peninsula Interleague side.
