Ganguly finds future Indian pacers in Nagarkoti Mavi and Porel

Mount Maunganui: Optimism mingled with an eagerness to know what lies ahead as India's potential future stars gear up to lock horns with Australia in their big- ticket campaign opener of the ICC U-19 World Cup here, Sunday.

India bowlers put Australian batting to the sword with pacers Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi claiming three wickets each and dismissed Australian team for 228. 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.

For Australia, opening batsman Jack Edwards (73) was the highest run-scorer.

It was always imperative to start the tournament on a dominant note and the Indian opening duo of Prithvi Shaw and Manjot Kalra were able to do just that.

They can cement that with a win at the home of the England senior team, who Allardyce managed for one game but never at Wembley. Apart from Wayne Rooney having a header ruled out for offside, at no stage did they ever look capable of doing something.

They are in Group-B alongside Australia, Zimbabwe, and Papua New Guinea.

The top-order's performance is likely to be crucial to India's chances in the tournament. It was not that Shaw and Klara plundered boundaries, instead they raised their knocks with some stupendous risk- free batting.

Abhishek Sharma and Anukul Roy scalped a victim each.

Shaw, though, missed out on a century by six runs as he was caught behind off Will Sutherland, son of Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland. The Indian captain faced 100 balls and scored eight boundaries, including two sixes in his knock.

Alongside Shaw, who has created ripples with his exploits in the domestic circuit for Mumbai, there is Himanshu Rana, who has also amased plenty of runs in Youth ODIs.

After the opener's departure, it was Shubham Gill who added on the scoresheet with his 63 run knock which consisted of six fours and one six.

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