Papua New Guinea showed their class with a crushing victory over Fiji at the East Asia Pacific Under 19 Cricket Championships on Monday.

Batting first, Fiji managed just 63 and with PNG racing to their target in only 11.1 overs for the loss of just one wicket.

Fiji coach, Steve Jenkin, says PNG are a very classy opposition that could beat most senior sides and have six players playing in Australia.

In the day's other game, Vanuatu comfortably beat Japan.
