Tauranga (New Zealand), Jan 16: India crushed minnows Papua New Guinea (PNG) by 10 wickets to register their second consecutive win in Group B of the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup here on Tuesday.

Left-arm spinner Anukul Roy finished 5/14 as three-time champions India completed a facile 10-wicket victory which took them closer towards qualification for the Super League stage.

Apart from Roy, Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti also bowled a the correct line and length as PNG could only set a paltry 65-run target.

India skipper Prithvi Shaw then knocked up a neat half-century as the target was achieved in only eight overs.

Commenting on the match, Roy said: “I thought there would not be much help in the pitch for bowlers so I decided to concentrate on line and length. I got the desired results and am thankful to the support and guidance I received from the team management.”
