West Indies upsets two-time former champion India

The West Indies' decision to base themselves in Australia for an extended period prior to the start of the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2012 provided an immediate outcome on Sunday, with an impressive four wickets victory over India in a Group C fixture before the ESPN STAR Sports' cameras at Tony Ireland Stadium in Townsville, Queensland.

 

The Caribbean crew was unbeaten in four warm-up games in Brisbane before heading to Townsville and showed the value of a strong batting line-up and a fast bowling attack that is relishing the bouncy pitches in Queensland.

 

Meanwhile, in the other matches of the day, South Africa got its tournament underway in similar fashion by overcoming Bangladesh by 133 runs in Brisbane, New Zealand did not miss a beat against qualifier Scotland by winning its Group B match by 39 runs, and England bounced back from Saturday's defeat to Australia to beat Ireland by seven wickets in a Group C match in Townsville.

 

After the first two days, all teams have now played at least one game.
