Well, what to say! PNG have been bowled out for 56. It took no time here at all. You may have looked away for a few minutes and then stunned to find this.
OUT! Nao 0(3)

 

Monu gets another. Joseph is bowled through the gate for four.
Joseph 4(29)

 

Nothing much happening here apart from the defending and the occasional runs coming their way. Indian spinners well on top.

PNG 33/4 | Overs 13.3

Aamir Gani traps the Papua New Guinea skipper leg-before
OUT! Bau 6(26)

 

Hekure is gone. Kuldeep Yadav traps him leg-before.
OUT! Hekure 20(46)

 

The batsmen are merely defending. Indian bowlers clearly on top of proveedings.

 

Monu Kumar gets the early breakthrough for India. Kiplin Doriga is bowled for one. And he gets another! Sam is bowled for a duck! He misses out on a hat-trick though.
OUT! Doriga 1(8) Sam 0(1)

 

India finish on a high as Sarfaraz hits a six. They have crossed 300 here and this is a good boost for them

 

Samson is finally caught as he tries to loft it over fine-leg but is comfortably thereafter.

 

Shreyas Iyer cuts one behind point for a four. Later, he holes one down long-off’s throat. That is the end of a very good partnership
OUT! Iyer 36(37)

 

Samson has come mad here. He is charging at every opportunity and has laced the off-side with some very attractive strokes. Initially, Samson had started very well, but has now shifted gears quite rapidly. The century of the partnership is up.

 

It is the Sanju Samson show at the Sharjah Stadium. He is absolutely smashing it around. Bowl outside the off and he is hitting it through the off-side. He even smashed one for six over long-on. In the 40th over, he smashed four consecutive fours and then hit a six over long-on.

 

Samson smashes one through the off-side and gets four for that. Both these batsmen have the responsibility of powering India to a good score. Of course, Sarfaraz Khan is waiting, but these two are the key.

 

Bains is out now! He tries to go over the top, but gets a top edge and is taken quite safely.
OUT! Bains 59(83)
Zol has been dismissed here at Sharjah. What had happened earlier was that Bains had got to fifty, but then Zol was bowled. Sanju Samson is in the middle.
OUT! Zol 35(68)
Zol and Bains have taken India past 100 and are building a solid base for an assault later.

 

India are now moving along quite smoothly. Both batsmen are knocking the ball around and taking as many runs as possible.
Bains is now attacking when the opportunity presents itself. This is a big game for Vijay Zol as well. Some runs under the belt would do well to help his confidence.

 

Akhil Herwadkar is gone after playing a bit of a flyer. He smashes one over the leg-side, but finds deep square-leg. Vijay Zol walks out to bat.
OUT! Herwadkar 37(40)

 

Both batsmen have now found their touch and have played a few attacking strokes to increase the scoring rate. India bring up their 50. Herwadkar gets the first six of the game as he guides one over fine-leg for maximum. He then charges down the ground and smashed it through the leg-side for four. Eighteen runs have come off that over.

 

Herwadkar has a life. He edges and chips one to point. But, the fielder makes a blunder and it is down.

 

The Indian batsmen start off cautiously. After the first over yielded six runs, they have gone about it very quietly.

 

India Under-19 have the toss and have elected to bat. India have made two changes as Shreyas Iyer and Monu Singh replace Ricky Bhui and Avesh Khan.

 

Teams:

 

India under-19: Vijay Zol (c), Akhil Herwadkar, Ankush Bains (wk), Sanju Samson, Shreyas Iyer, Sarfaraz Khan, Deepak Hooda, Chama Milind, Kuldeep Yadav, Aamir Gani, Monu Kumar.

 

Papua New Guinea under-19: Dogodo Bau (c), Riley Hekure, Raho Sam, Kiplin Doriga, Allan Joseph, Hiri Hiri, Tom Willie (wk), Micah Pokana, Alei Nao, Kabua Morea, Sakavai Gebai.

 


 

Welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2014 match between India and Papua New Guinea. India have effectively made it through to the quarter-finals. However, given the scare they had in the last game, there is a need to finish off on a high note and move into the quarter-finals. They were made to work hard for the win against Scotland and would not take Papua New Guinea easy. Vijay Zol leads a band of talented youngsters and they are the defending champions, needing an encore of their 2012 performance. Some of those team-members are still around and there is a lot of hope around this unit.   I am Nishad Pai Vaidya and will take you through the game.
