West Indies and Pakistan recorded nine-wicket wins at the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in Queensland on Monday while Australia and Sri Lanka notched easy triumphs.
Papua New Guinea won the toss and elected to bat in its clash against the West Indies in Townsville but it proved to be a poor decision as it was just routed for just 116.
At 43 for two in the 15th over, things were not disastrous for the ICC Associate nation but Kyle Mayers (three for 12 off four) ripped through the middle order, taking three wickets in two overs.
Christopher Kent (39) battled valiantly while Chad Soper (23) and Nigel Boge (21) tried to stop the flow of wickets but they had no help, with bowler Toua Tom posting his side's fourth highest score with just seven.
West Indies left-armer Jerome Jones (three for 15 off 10) backed up an impressive performance against India with another terrific showing while spinner Akeal Hosein (two for 23 off six) chipped in as well.
In response, the West Indies chased down its victory target inside 12 overs as Sunil Ambris treated the crowd at Endeavour Park to a sublime exhibition of hitting.
Ambris walloped 91 runs from 43 deliveries, including nine fours and seven sixes as the West Indies cruised to a comfortable victory.
Pakistan also won easily, with Babar Azam's 106 not out leading them to a convincing triumph against Scotland on the Sunshine Coast.
Ross McLean (59) was Scotland's best but it collapsed from 146 for two to be dismissed for just 200, with left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz (four for off 10) the pick of the bowlers.
And Azam and Sami Aslam (78) helped Pakistan to a nine-wicket win, achieved with 82 balls to spare.
Paceman Harry Conway (3-15 off six overs) snared a hat-trick as the Aussies skittled Nepal for just 82 to post a 212-run win at Tony Ireland Stadium in Townsville.
Cameron Bancroft (125) and Kurtis Patterson (86) added 160 runs for the second wicket as they posted a total of 294-7 from their 50 overs.
Conway then dismissed opener Pradeep Airee (one), Naresh Budayair (zero) and Nepal captain Prithu Baskota (zero) - all clean bowled - to claim his hat-trick, while off-spinner Ashton Turner (4-28 off 5.5) cleaned up the tail as Australia made it two wins from two at the tournament.
The day's other match saw Sri Lanka thrash Namibia by 195 runs, with the winners scoring 298-9 thanks to a team effort in which five players made more than 35.
Medium-pacer Lahiru Madushanka (4-15 off six) helped rip through Namibia, who were bowled out for just 103 in response.
