  • Sachin Tendulkar and Prithvi Shaw

Indian openers -Shaw and Kalra - setting up the platform with Shubnam Gill coming and striking a timely half-century to take India to 328.

Mount Maunganui, Jan 14 In an authoritative show, Indian colts trounced Australia by a massive 100-run margin in their ICC Under 19 World Cup opener with bowlers complementing a splendid batting performance, here. The game was the marquee clash as both the teams had some sensational young talent in their ranks.

India and Australia are the most successful teams of the U-19 World Cup, having won the trophy three times each.

There were no steady partnerships after their departure even as Gill kept one end solid with his 54-ball knock which had six fours and a six. Jack Edwards was the pick of the bowlers for the Aussies as he returned with the figures of 4/65. The former struck up front in the 15th over to scalp Max Bryant.


In limited overs cricket, picking up wickets at regular intervals is very important.

Plus, Ireland kicked off their campaign with a seven-wicket defeat to Sri Lanka in Group D - Sri Lanka chasing down Ireland's total of 207-8, in which Jamie Grassi top scored with 75. The skipper Jason Sangha was also sent back by the spinner Abhishek Sharma.

India pacers Kamlesh Nagrakoti (3/29) and Shivam Mavi (3/45) then impressed with their speed and shared six wickets between them to shot out Australia for 228 in 42.5 overs. While Dravid, who has been at the helm of U-19 and India A squad for some time, may not like to focus on individuals, it is very hard to not see the likes of skipper Prithvi Shaw as the a vital cog in the team's batting wheel. India made sure that they keep picking wickets at crucial stages to push back the Aussies each time they started to see some hope. The Aussies on the other hand were unexpectedly shabby in the field.
