India v Papua New Guinea, ICC U-19 World Cup, TownsvilleIndia U19 Entered into Quarter-final16-Aug-2012 09:11:00 GMT
Townsville: Needing a win against Papua New Guinea to stay alive in the tournament, India were bowled out for 204 in the 46th over at Endeavour Park in Townsville.
India was still comfortable winners though as Papua New Guinea were skittled for just 97 in response.
India made a poor start to the day with skipper Unmukt Chand (4) caught at first slip off the bowling of Chad Soper (5-32) in just the second over of the day.
Baba Aparajith (14) was then run out, while Hanuma Vihari (six) also failed with the bat, with opener Prashant Chopra (58) the only top-order batsman to fire.
India slumped to 98 for five when Chopra and Akshdeep Nath (one) fell in quick succession but an 82-run partnership between Vijay Zol (72) and Smit Patel (30) rescued the innings as India finished with a decent enough score.
Papua New Guinea started poorly, losing Lega Siaka (one) in the fourth over but Christopher Kent (27) and Dogodo Bau (14) had India nervous as they carried the score to 42-1 at one stage.
The wicket of Kent triggered a collapse though as medium-pacer Ravikant Singh (5-21) and off-spinner Aparajith (2-16) ripped through the lower order.
