So India complete a clinical ten-wicket win over Papua New Guinea. No surprises there, but the ruthlessness of Indians stood out. There was no dip in intensity from the pacers,and Anukul Roy, the left-arm spinner, walked away with a five-for on a pitch made to assist the fast men.He bowled with lot of guile, and had the opposition in knots. Mavi and Nagarkoti were sharp, but they would do well to get their lengths right. India also were a bit below par in fielding, and coach Rahul Dravid would have surely taken note. India's reply was swift and serene, with skipper Prithvi Shaw's fifty leading the charge. He is the one to watch out for, and hopefully we will here more of him in coming years. For the record, the entire match lasted just 29.5 overs!
