Steve Waugh's son included Australia U-19 squad for World Cup

Former World Cup-winning captain Steve Waugh's son Austin has been included in Australia's 15- man squad for the U-19 World Cup, to be held in New Zealand next month.

The side led by Jason Sangha also includes Will Sutherland, son of Cricket Australia's (CA) chief executive James Sutherland. Sutherland Jr is the vice-captain of the side.

In 2016, Waugh had hit an unbeaten hundred in the final of the Under-17 National Championships, and earlier this year represented Australia U-19s in a one-day series against Sri Lanka's youth side.

Former Australia pacer Ryan Harris will coach the U-19 side, while former opener Chris Rogers will assist him.

The U-19 World Cup will be played between January 13 and February 3 in New Zealand.

Australia are slotted into Group B, and will open their campaign against India on January 14 in Mount Maunganui. The other teams in Group B are Zimbabwe and Papua New Guinea.
