Internet Desk: As India will face Papua New Guinea in their second match in ICC U19 World Cup. We will discuss about five points ahead of the match.

Ground: Bay Oval (also known as Blake Park) is a cricket ground in

Mount Maunganui, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. It hosted its first ODI on January 28, 2014 between Canada and Netherlands as part of the 2014 Cricket World Cup Qualifier. It has a capacity of 10,000.

Pitch: It will be a fast and seaming wicket at the Bay Oval and Indian batsmen have to handle the conditions well as they did in the previous match against Australia. Shivam Mavi can be a match winner as he bowled over 140km/hr.

Conditions: It has been raining in Bay Oval today and there is a threat of rain on the match day as well. It would be very windy there and it would be interesting to see whether the ball seam much in the overcast condition

Key Players: India skipper Prithvi Shaw is the vital cog in the team’s batting wheel. Beside that there would be Himanshu Rana, who has scored plenty of runs in. In the bowling department Ishan Porel will miss the match for his injury but, Shivam Mavi can be another pacer who can turn things around.

Preview:  It would be interesting to know what the future of Indian cricket is as the talented U19 colts are ready to face Papua New Guinea in their second match of the ICC U19 World Cup tomorrow. With a coach like Rahul Dravid, it is expected that the Blue colts will perform well in the tournament as they have already acclimatized to the conditions as they have arrived in New Zealand many days ahead of the tournament.
