India defeats Australian cricket team by 100 runs

Australia never got into the groove and lost wickets at regular intervals to be bowled out for 228. Nagarkoti clocked 146.8 kmph as his fastest delivery and Mavi wasn't far behind at 144.5 kmph. The two pacers tested Australians with their nagging off-stump line.

Australian team had a very strong competition and they started decently enough, Jack Edwards made a respectable, 73 runs, but his partners were weak, and could hold on a steady partnership, thus the wickets began to fall quickly and steadily, making it hard for the team to recover.

Jonathan Merlo (38) tried his best in the middle order and stumper Baxtor Holt (39) resisted in a rearguard fight but both were undone by Mavi.

Australia's next match in group b is against Zimbabwe in Lincoln on Wednesday, before a clash with Papua New Guinea on Friday.

The top-order's performance is likely to be crucial to India's chances in the tournament. Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland's son Will is also in the national squad.

It was also a fine outing for England as they posted an imposing 372 for eight against Ireland with captain Harry Brook and Will Jacks both retiring at 100 each and Fin Trenouth producing a brisk 41-ball 73 with five fours and five sixes.

Shaw was dismissed on 94 when he edged the ball to the keeper, while Kalra was caught at mid-wicket and was dismissed at 86.

There were no steady partnerships after their departure even as Gill kept one end solid with his 54-ball knock which had six fours and a six. Spinners Abhishek Sharma and Anukul Roy took one wicket apiece.

Abhishek Sharma though managed to come up with a 8-ball 23-run cameo which propelled India past the 300-run mark.

The duo brought the team's 50 in the 10th over, with Kalra hitting two boundaries in on Sutherland over.
