Debutants Nigeria are set to face England at the Under-19 cricket World Cup. But only a handful of people in Africa’s most populous nation – the players’ families and close friends – even knew that the team, nicknamed the Junior Yellow Greens, were on the verge of making history.

They are in a hard group facing Australia, England and West Indies – all previous winners of the Under-19 World Cup.
