Skipper Prithvi Shaw with a 94-run knock shared a 180-run stand with fellow opener Manjot Kalra to power India to a challenging 328 for seven.

Australia have faltered in their opening match of the Under-19 World Cup as India cruised to a comprehensive 100-run win on Sunday at Mount Maunganui's Bay Oval.

Shaw and Kalra gave India the flawless start, surpassing India's previous best opening stand in the Under-19 World Cup of 173 set by Robin Uthappa and Shikhar Dhawan in 2006, after which, vice-captain Shubham Gill's 63 and Abhishek Sharma's 8-ball 23 took India to the formidable total.

Indian pacers Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti then picked up three wickets each as the Australians were dismissed for 228 in 42.5 overs. Nagarkoti clocked 146.8 kmph as his fastest delivery and Mavi wasn't far behind at 144.5 kmph.

It was a six from Shaw which opened the floodgates for India. It was not that Shaw and Klara plundered boundaries, instead they raised their knocks with some stupendous risk- free batting.

Shaw, though, missed out on a century by six runs as he was caught behind off Will Sutherland, son of former Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland.
