HIGHLIGHTS

  • 09:05 (IST)

    INDIA WIN: That's it. India have done it style. All it took them was eight overs to go through the line. They have made short work of Papua New Guinea as they win by 10 wickets. Total domination by Roy and Shaw.

  • 09:04 (IST)

    FIFTY FOR SHAW: And Prithvi Shaw brings up his fifty in just  38 balls. He flciks the ball through midwicket and then finishes it off in just the next ball.  

  • 08:56 (IST)

    DROP: This is disaster fro PNG players as they drop the Prithvi Shaw. The batsman tries to loft the ball past mid-off but skies it. The fielder misses an easy catch. Still Shaw manages to score two boundaries. Indai are 45/0.

  • 08:23 (IST)

    FIFER: And that's it. Anulkul Roy picks up the last wicket as well. That is the end of PNG innings. India just need 65 runs to win from the match. Great effort by the bowlers. 

  • 08:21 (IST)

    WICKET: And Anukul Roy gets another wicket. He tosses the ball up and the batsman just lofts the up in the air. Roy gets his fourth wicket in his seventh over.  PNG are 64/9.

  • 08:16 (IST)

    WICKET: Left-arm spinner Anukul Roy gets another wicket. His third one. He bowls a perfect off-spinner for the wicket, and the batsman is completely clueless about it. PNG are 63/8. 

09:05 (IST)

INDIA WIN: That's it. India have done it style. All it took them was eight overs to go through the line. They have made short work of Papua New Guinea as they win by 10 wickets. Total domination by Roy and Shaw.

09:04 (IST)

FIFTY FOR SHAW: And Prithvi Shaw brings up his fifty in just  38 balls. He flciks the ball through midwicket and then finishes it off in just the next ball.  

09:00 (IST)

Another four for Shaw as hits a full-toss towards midwicket. That almost went for a six. And with this shot India reach fifty in just the seventh over. And on last ball of the over, Shaw hammers one through mid-off. India are 56/0.

08:56 (IST)

DROP: This is disaster fro PNG players as they drop the Prithvi Shaw. The batsman tries to loft the ball past mid-off but skies it. The fielder misses an easy catch. Still Shaw manages to score two boundaries. Indai are 45/0.

08:53 (IST)

That's another fine over for India. Prithvi Shaw is dealing in boundaries here. He hits a low full-toss to the mid-wicket boundary and then manages to cut the ball for another boundary. India are racing towards the target. It's 35/0.

08:47 (IST)

A relatively quiet over coming here from Papua New Guinea bowlers. Just two runs coming off it, as Manjot is more than happy to just defend the ball and a geta feel of the wicket. India are 26/0 after four overs. 

08:43 (IST)

And now it's Shaw's turn. He hits a similar boundary from the one he did in the first over of the innings. This is looking way too easy for India at the moment. He then follows it up with two boundaries towards the midwicket. India are 24/0.

08:39 (IST)

The new bowler Tau manages to get first five balls of the over in the right place, but then it the last ball where Manjot drives him through mid-off for a boundary. India are 12/0 in two overs. 

08:33 (IST)

A great start to the Indian innings as Prithvi SHaw gets a juicy half-volley. The batsman rocks back into the crease and hits it through the point region for a four. India are 7/0 after the first over.

08:26 (IST)

This was a dramatic collapse for Papua New Guinea as they lost last six wickets for just three runs. When everyone expected Fast bowlers to do well, it was the Indian spinners who came to the party. We are now just moments away from the start of Indian innings.

08:23 (IST)

FIFER: And that's it. Anulkul Roy picks up the last wicket as well. That is the end of PNG innings. India just need 65 runs to win from the match. Great effort by the bowlers. 

08:21 (IST)

WICKET: And Anukul Roy gets another wicket. He tosses the ball up and the batsman just lofts the up in the air. Roy gets his fourth wicket in his seventh over.  PNG are 64/9.

08:19 (IST)

Now another left-arm spinner is introduced into the attack. This is his first over of the match. And just one run coming off it. PNG are 64/8 after 21 overs.  

08:16 (IST)

WICKET: Left-arm spinner Anukul Roy gets another wicket. His third one. He bowls a perfect off-spinner for the wicket, and the batsman is completely clueless about it. PNG are 63/8. 

08:12 (IST)

Nagarkoti comes in for another over. He has already picked up one wicket. A lot was talked about Nagarkoti's speed, and this match too he is raking up speeds in excess of 146 kmph. He is getting a lot of bounce from the wicket. Score remains at 63/7.

08:08 (IST)

The Indian bowlers have rattled the Papua New Guinea side as expected and they are seven down now just for 63 runs. This is going to really easy for the Indians here. Hello and welcome to cricketnext's live blog.  

India vs Papua New Guinea, ICC U-19 World Cup, Highlights: As it Happened

PREVIEW: The odds will be stacked heavily in favour of India when the title contenders, with an eye on securing a knockout berth, meet minnows Papua New Guinea in the ICC U-19 World Cup here on Tuesday. Three-time winners India began the tournament on a rousing note, inflicting a 100-run defeat on a well-knit Australian team on Sunday.

With Zimbabwe being the other team in the group, India, with the kind of form they displayed in the sound thrashing of Australia, are expected to progress to knockouts without breaking a sweat. From the moment India captain Prithvi Shaw won the toss and chose to bat, their opening game went almost exactly to plan, and the script is likely to remain the same at Bay Oval

on Tuesday.

The likes of Shaw, his opening partner Manjot Kalra, and Shubham Gill with the bat along with the pace duo of Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti could prove to be more than a handful for the Oceanian country. Eager to prove themselves after their disastrous showing in the Asia Cup, India signalled their intentions first up with a thumping win over a very strong Australian side.

Papua New Guinea have qualified for their eighth World Cup after remaining undefeated in the East Asia Pacific Qualifier in Samoa. PNG's last appearance in the World Cup came in 2014 in

the United Arab Emirates. They would be keen to make an impression and show their fighting abilities.

India may be superior in all departments, but they are well aware of PNG's willingness to make the most of this appearance, and the Rahul Dravid-coached side would look to guard against complacency. India have been one of the most successful teams through the history of U-19 World Cups, with three titles and two runner-up finishes.

The side finished runners-up in the previous edition in 2016, losing to the West Indies in the title clash, and while a final berth looks realistic enough, a stumble at the last hurdle is what they are looking to avoid this time around. In another match in Whangrei, Pakistan will square off against Ireland in a Group D clash.

Teams: India: Prithvi Shaw (C), Shubman Gill, Aryan Juyal, Abhishek Sharma, Arshdeep Singh, Harvik Desai, Manjot Kalra, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Pankaj Yadav, Riyan Parag, Ishan Porel, Himanshu Rana, Anukul Roy, Shivam Mavi, Shiva Singh.

Papua New Guinea: Sema Kamea (C), Eisa Eka, James Tau, Tau Toa Nou, Nou Rarua, Igo Mahuru, Simon Atai, Leke Morea, Vagi Karaho, Kevau Tau, Heagi Toua, Daure Aiga, Ovia Sam, Sinaka Arua, Boge Arua.
