Several players have already put in terrific individual performances at the 2012 ICC U19 World Cup.
And with the quarter-finals upon us, we look back at the group stage action and select five of the efforts that made us sit up and take notice.
Harry Conway (Australia)
The speedster claimed a superb hat-trick against Nepal, bowling Pradeep Airee, Naresh Budayair and Prithu Baskota in successive deliveries. All three had their stumps shattered by deliveries that hit the off-stump. Conway finished with 3-15 off six overs but has not played since due to a back injury.
Kamal Passi (India)
Passi first made his mark on a match against Zimbabwe with a whirlwind 24 not out off five deliveries. He hit three sixes in his brief stay at the crease at the end of India's innings. It was with the ball that he really stood out though, with the medium-pacer claiming figures of 6-23 off 8.1 overs to help his side to victory.
Malcolm Lake (Zimbabwe)
In the same match as Passi's heroics, Lake – who claimed figures of 1-19 off seven overs with the ball – kept his side in the contest with a score of 118 off 107 deliveries. He hit 10 fours and five sixes in a superb solo innings.
Sunil Ambris (West Indies)
The wicket-keeper took the Papua New Guinea attack apart in Townsville with a sublime display of hitting. He belted nine fours and seven sixes in a sparkling innings of 91 from 43 balls.
Ravikant Singh (India)
With his country's hopes of progressing in some doubt against Papua New Guinea, Singh bowled superbly. Defending a total just over 200, Singh snared figures of 5-21 off nine overs to make sure his side qualified for the last eight.
