India beat Australia by 100 runs in Group B

Afghanistan defeated Pakistan by five wickets in their ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup opener on Saturday

India will be very confident as they recently defeated South Africa in a warm up match by 189 runs.

Coming on to bat, Australia showed patience and strength initially and India did struggle to break through.

The Proteas racked up 341-7, with opener Jiveshan Pillay hitting 62 and Jade de Klerk (28no off 23) and Gerald Coetzee (36no off 14) clubbing 65 runs in the final five overs.

Ireland sniffed victory when they reduced Sri Lanka to 9-2 and 51-3 but Pothotuwa Arachchige Dhananjaya (101no) and captain Pasqual Mendis (74no) subsequently steered the Asian side to victory with an unbroken partnership of 157.

India fast bowler Ishan Porel ripped through South Africa's top-order with a four-wicket haul, while Abhishek Sharma followed his useful 35-run knock with two wickets even as the 2014 champions were dismissed for 143 runs in 38.3 overs.

With all eyes focussed on Virat Kohli's freaky team selections ahead of the second Test against South Africa, yet another Indian squad began their path towards super-stardom in silent earnest.

"We've been playing some very good cricket of late, so rather than focusing on individuals and naming a few people, at this age we really believe that every one of these kids is talented".

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.

The Indian captain faced 100 balls and scored eight boundaries, including two sixes in his knock.

Ireland were all out for 247 in reply, with captain Harry Tector scoring 104 (118 balls, 12x4, 2x6) and Joshua Little getting a half-century after grabbing three wickets earlier in the day.
