India hammer Papua New Guinea by 10 wickets

India hammer Papua New Guinea by 10 wickets

The Indian Under-19 team kickstarted their 2018 World Cup campaign in fine style, defeating Australia by 100 runs in their first match at Tauranga on Sunday. The youngsters are being tested in this quest to win the coveted title of U19 World Cup champions. Group B of the World Cup qualifiers, meanwhile, will comprise Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, Scotland, Hong Kong and the runners-up from the Division 2 tournament.

The two-time champions will play alongside the risky Irish, with the Netherlands and Papua New Guinea also included in the preliminary group.

Windies captain Jason Holder speaking on the event said, "We see this as a very important tournament".

The 26-year-old has played 70 ODIs in a five-year global career. However, other two sides will be confirmed after the conclusion of ICC World Cricket League Division 2, which will be played between 8 to 15 February in Namibia. "It will be a challenge and we sat down and have formulated plans as to how best to approach the tournament".

India stormed into the knockout stage of the ICC Under-19 World Cup with a facile 10-wicket victory against after minnows Papua New Guinea on Tuesday.


"With three teams from each group moving into the Super Sixes, and the top two moving to the final - thereby earning a spot at the World Cup - there is all to play for".

The left-hander, who reminded those watching a bit of Shikhar Dhawan with a leg-stump guard and free-flowing game on the off-side, complemented Shaw very well at the top of the order to get India off to a ideal start.

Zimbabwe are carrying out modest renovations to their grounds and have even postponed their domestic tournament as work is carried out, under ICC supervision, to try to add more pace and bounce to pitches, an attempt to ensure livelier, higher-scoring matches.

The announcement marks 500 days to the ICC's pinnacle 50-over tournament, which will be staged in the United Kingdom from May 30 to July 15.The venues are Queen's Sports Club and Bulawayo Athletic Club in Bulawayo, Harare Sports Club and Old Hararians Sports Club in Harare, and Kwekwe Sports Club, Kwekwe. This ensures that at least all matches in the 2019 World Cup in England will be fought out with official status attached.
