India got off to a good start in the ICC Under-19 World Cup by beating Australia by a mammoth 100 runs on Sunday.

Shaw and Manjot Kalra (86) had made a 180 partnership before the first wicket was collected by the Australians.

Brief scores: India 328/7 in 50 overs (Prithvi Shaw 94, Manjot Kalra 84, Shubman Gill 63; Jack Edwards 4-65) beat Australia 228 all out in 42.5 overs (Jack Edwards 73; Kamlesh Nagarkoti 3-29, Shivam Mavi 3-45) by 100 runs.

They are in Group-B alongside Australia, Zimbabwe, and Papua New Guinea.

"Our mind was clear - just wait for the loose balls. Our goal is obviously to win the World Cup but at the same time we are looking forward to our first game", he said.Asked if there are any Indian players in particular he thinks could have a lot of success at this tournament, Dravid said, We don't like to focus too much on the individuals.

It was not that Shaw and Klara plundered boundaries, instead they raised their knocks with some stupendous risk- free batting.

The U-19 Indian skipper missed out on a century as he was caught behind off by Will Sutherland, son of former Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland.

South Africa captain Raynard van Tonder struck 143 off 121 balls, an innings that included 14 fours and five sixes, as 2014 champions thrashed Kenya by 169 runs in Group A.

Abhishek Sharma provided a late flourish to the Indian innings with an 8-ball 23. He hit two sixes and as many fours.

Australia U19 squad: Jason Sangha (NSW, captain), Will Sutherland (VIC, vice captain), Xavier Bartlett (QLD), Max Bryant (QLD), Jack Edwards (NSW), Zak Evans (VIC), Jarrod Freeman (TAS), Ryan Hadley (NSW), Baxter Holt (NSW), Nathan McSweeney (QLD), Jonathan Merlo (VIC), Lloyd Pope (SA), Jason Ralston (NSW), Param Uppal (NSW), Austin Waugh (NSW). It was Edwards, who dismissed Rana and then later added wickets of Abhishek and Shiva Singh (10) to his tally.
