    India beat Australia by 100 runs in u-19s

    India have thumped Australia by 100 runs to win their first pool game in the under-19 cricket World Cup in New Zealand.


    India have cruised to a 100-run win over Australia in their opening pool match at the under-19 cricket World Cup in New Zealand.

    Anchored by an 180-run opening partnership between skipper Prithvi Shaw and Manjot Kalra, India set Australia a daunting run chase in reaching 328-7 at Blake Oval in Mt Maunganui.

    Apart from Shubman Gill's 63, the remainder of India's battling line-up failed to fire and the last five wickets fell for 79 runs in 40 balls, with four of those going to medium pacer Jack Edwards (4-65)

    Australia were bundled out for 228 in 42.5 overs. Baxter Holt (39) and Jonathon Merlo (38) top scored and pacemen Kamlesh Nagarkoti (3-29) and Shivam Mavi (3-45) proved most effective for India.

    In another high-scoring match, South Africa racked up a 169-run win over Kenya at Lincoln.

    Raynard van Tonder's man-of-the-match 143 anchored South Africa to 341-7, with the skipper compiling a 125-run partnership with Jiveshan Pillay (62) for the second wicket.

    Gerald Coetzee finished the South African innings with a flourish and his 36 off 14 balls included two fours and three sixes.

    Kenya battled gamely through to 172-7 off their 50 overs. Jasraj Kundi top-scored with a 53-ball 41 after leading the Kenyan bowling effort with figures of 2-49 off eight overs.

    In Whangarei, Sri Lanka looked comfortable in easing to a seven-wicket win over Ireland with 63 balls to spare.

    Openers Jamie Grassi (75) and Mark Donegan (36) put on 73 for the first wicket as Ireland reached 207-8 after winning the toss.

    Sri Lanka wasted no time in blasting their way to 208-3 off 37.3 overs and opener Dhananjaya Lakshan scored an unbeaten 101.

    Ireland snaffled three quick early wickets to have Sri Lanka 51-3 after 12 overs, but Lakshan and skipper Kamindu Mendis (74) compiled an unbeaten 157-run fourth wicket partnership to secure the win.
