An Under 16 tournament starts today in Thailand, which will be used to select players for the Thailand Under 15 team, and to test out the new turf wickets that will be used in the ACC Under 15 Challenger division next month.

Three 45 over matches will be played between hosts Chiang Mai, Khon Kaen and Bangkok. One-day international rules and proper hard cricket balls will be used throughout the tournament's three matches.
