India beats Australia by 100 runs to wins first match in U19 World cup
Skipper Prithvi Shaw led from the front with a 94-run knock as India U19 team defeated Australia by 100 runs in their first league game. Pacers Shivam Navi (3/45) and Kamlesh Nagarkoti (3/29) shined with the ball to fold the Aussies' innings. The duo also impressed all with their speed as they shared six wickets among themselves. Nagarkoti hit the deck consistently at a speed in the range of 150kmph and was well supported by Mavi, who also clocked 145 at times. The two pacers tested Australians with their nagging off-stump line. As Indian batsmen looked for some quick runs, Australian medium fast bowler Jack Edwards ended up taking four wickets. It was Edwards, who dismissed Rana and then later added wickets of Abhishek and Shiva Singh (10) to his tally.
