Things will only get tougher for Papua New Guinea's cricketers at the Under 19 World Cup, who take on the West Indies in Townsville on Monday.

The Garamuts lost their opening match to Zimbabwe by 104 runs, with Raymond Haoda picking up three wickets and Sese Bau notching 34 runs.

The West Indies had a winning start, chasing down India's 166 with 17 balls to spare.
