And it's all over, all too easy for India there.... Pitches outside off and curves back in, Gavera tries to slice it through the off side and misses, the ball just shaves the off stump. That's a massive 195-run win for India
Not much of a competition was it? Well, Papua New Guinea will only learn from this experience and get better as they play more games. They'd do better to frustrate the opposition by occupying the crease next time, something they were never prepared to do today. Any scorecard which reflects the 'extras' column as the 2nd highest scorer (20) only adds to the embarrassment of the batting team. Alfred Amini was impressive in patches but couldn't stick around for too long.
The Man of the Match is Tanmay Srivastava for his unbeaten 83 off 76 balls. India face tougher opposition in South Africa on Tuesday at the same venue. PNG face West Indies at the Royal Selangor Club in Kuala Lumpur the next day.
We hope you enjoyed the coverage. Do stay with us for live coverage of tomorrow's game between South Africa and West Indies. This is Kanishkaa signing off. Cheers!
