Australia beat West Indies by 15 runs
Yet another day ends in the World Cup! The 2015 finalists are topping the table as of now, with New Zealand leading the group. The caravan moves to Bristol, where match number 11 sees Pakistan and Sri Lanka clash. However, there could be a third party intervention. RAIN. There is plenty of it forecast but hopefully, it is proved wrong. Join us at 10.30 am local (0930 GMT) on Friday, June 7, 2019. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Australian skipper, Aaron Finch, smiles and says that they just tried to hang in there. Mentions that the stand between Carey and Smith took them a little deeper and then the way Nathan Coulter-Nile batted was exceptional. Admits that he was nervous at 38/4 but they hung in there and he considers it outstanding that they got 280-odd from there. Tells that he had to keep taking wickets and steal some momentum from Windies' batting innings. Says that the output of the Aussie top order was disappointing and agrees that they have a lot of improvement to do.
West Indies skipper, Jason Holder, says that he is disappointed as they were well in the game. Rues the fact that there were a few irresponsible shots played. States that there are still many positives from this game. Tells that they dropped Coulter-Nile on 60 odd and he got plenty at the end. Feels that their batters need to take more responsibility. Terms the run out of Shimron Hetmyer costly. Mentions that they still believe in themselves and it's early days in the tournament. Wants to get consistent with their performance.
Nathan Coulter-Nile is chosen for the Man of the Match award! Says that he didn't think he will get that many with the bat. Tells that the plan was to stick around a little bit and admits that the luck went his way too. States that they backed themselves at the halfway mark as they have two world class bowlers in their team. On the surface, NCN replies that the pitch was a bit up and down. Praises Starc for his brilliant spell.
West Indies had plenty of positives. The seamers dismantled Australia in the first hour and a half, then the batsmen showed that they can chase down any total irrespective of whether Gayle fires or not. But if they just manage to play those crucial moments better - for example, not taking the foot off the throat when on top and not throw it away when in a good position. Who is your Man Of The Match? Starc? Or Coulter-Nile? Tough choice. Here comes the presentation...
Positives for Australia? No one performing but the glue showing its effect. Precocious Steven Peter Devereux Smith. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Smith showed what Australia have been missing in the last 15 months. Nathan Coulter-Nile's 92 - showing that Australia's tail can wag. And Starc's 5-fer signalling that he is slowing come back to form.
1. First innings. Australia 79/5. West Indies let loose their grip and allow Carey and Coulter-Nile to take the game away, with 150 coming for the next 2 wickets. 2. Nathan Coulter-Nile dropped on 61. Australia were 238/6, added 50 more. 3. West Indies going nicely at 149/3, needing 140 from 137 balls, only for Hope to run Hetmyer out. 4. West Indies have the match in control at 190/4, needing 99 from 91 balls. Cummins is probably bowling the last over of his spell. Hope loses patience and brings Australia back in the game. 5. Russell blitzes away, gets the target down to 73 from 68 balls. Finch forced to go to his main bowler Starc. Dre Russ misreads the situation, throws it away due to over-attacking and Australia are back again. 6. 252/6 - 37 needed from 28 balls and Brathwaite and Holder lose the plot, handing Starc a double-wicket over. So if you can see, who was tilting the balance? West Indies, every time. But then, due to their own folly, kept getting Australia back in and eventually, paid the price for it.
While we go ga-ga over Australia, West Indies will be gutted with themselves. They had the match in control, only to throw it away at crucial moments. Australia were not necessarily better but they played out the nervous moments nicely. Those are the ones where the game shifts due to the momentum. Let us count.
Credit to Australia for getting their 10th straight win. They showed character and nerves of steel when the going got tough and probably slight inexperience from the West Indies helped them. But Australia will not mind, as they get their second victory of this World Cup.

Nathan Coulter-Nile To Ashley Nurse
FOUR! Make it four in a row but still that won't do for the Windies. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 15 RUNS! A pitched up delivery outside off, Ashley Nurse gets on the front foot and strokes it through the gap between mid off and extra cover for a boundary. 16 from the over but they needed 32. Well tried in the end but Australia are the deserving winners.

Marcus Stoinis To Ashley Nurse
Brilliant effort and awareness shown by Maxwell! Short in length on middle, Nurse somehow gets on top of the bounce and pulls it to deep square leg. Stoinis in the deep runs across to his left and puts in a premature dive. Still gets a hand to it but ends up parrying towards the rope. Now, the brilliance of Glenn comes into play. He speeds across to his right from deep mid-wicket, gets down low at the right time and flicks it inside. Saves three runs for his team.

Mitchell Starc To Sheldon Cottrell OUT!
OUT! Stumps are shattered! Starc gets his 6th ODI fifer and is all pumped up. What an impact bowler he is when he gets it right! Cottrell exposes all his stumps even before the bowler has delivered. Starc keeps it in line at 143 kph, Sheldon swings and misses to find his stumps rattled. No Sheldon, you cannot do that against this bowler.

Good call by Finch who also got some help there from Smith, we feel as they were seen having a word. The batsmen for the record crossed.

Mitchell Starc To Jason Holder OUT!
OUT! Starc, you beast! Two wickets in the over and this match has completely turned in the favour of the Aussies. He hurls in a short delivery around the rib cage, Holder stands tall to pull but the bounce gets big on him and he ends up gloving it towards short fine leg. Adam Zampa takes an easy catch and this is wicket number 150 in ODIs for Mitch - fastest to reach this mark. Meanwhile, a disappointed Holder walks back leaving his team sinking.

Carlos though has not picked the variation in pace and is early into the swing of his bat. It catches the toe end and flies straight down to Finch at long on who makes no mistake. The Aussies won't go down without a fight. 37 needed off 27 balls.

NOT OUT! Brathwaite packs a punch to a length delivery and Warner at mid on makes an outstanding stop. He has a shy at the bowler's end but misses.

Is that a run out? Jason Holder seems to have stretched out but to the naked eye, looks to be in. Yes... replays show that the long levers have helped him.

Mitchell Starc To Andre Russell OUT!
OUT! Where is the ball? Where is the ball? It is Maxi who has quietened all! The entire stadium has been silenced. Dre Russ has come. Dre Russ has gone. The game opens up again. This is the way he plays - if it comes off, it is great. Else, it looks bad. One might argue there was no need for this. But on the flip side, with the off side up, Russell thought I will go over the off side. Starc smartly changed the pace, bowled a slower one but Russell was already through his shot. Looked to go inside out but all he managed was a top edge. Now here is where Glenn Maxwell came into play. He raced behind from point, ran after it, kept his eyes on the ball, circled under it, lost it for a while but then eventually took it. The Australians are pumped up. They will feel they are on top now. But the match is not over yet. 73 more needed from 67 balls.

Adam Zampa To Jason Holder
The googly, on middle, skids through after pitching, Jason is a bit late on his flick and mistimes it through square leg. A run taken. Had he missed this, even a review would not have saved him from being adjudged LBW.

Adam Zampa To Jason Holder
NOT OUT! Zampa lets out a well tossed up delivery and lands it full around leg, Holder goes down to sweep but misses and is hit on the back leg. They appeal and the umpire agrees after thinking for a while. Holder has a chat with his partner before taking the referral. The replays roll in and they find that it's going down to miss the leg stump. The pitching was fine and there was no inside edge but the most important part wasn't with Australia. Jason survives.
Jason Holder once again has been given out lbw! He walks up to his partner to have a chat and then signals for the DRS. This time it's closer than the last one. Let's see. No inside edge. What will the Hawk Eye show? Missing? Or clipping?

Jason Holder, meanwhile, is lying flat on the ground receiving some massage. Who will join him in the middle now? Andre Russell has come out to bat. The chase begins now. Adam Zampa comes back as well. 7-0-36-1 so far.

Pat Cummins To Shai Hope OUT!
OUT! A much-needed breakthrough for Australia! Shai Hope has thrown it away. A soft dismissal really and Shai has his head down in disappointment. Cummins slants in a fuller length ball on middle, Shai leans forward and across to play the flick shot through mid-wicket but ends up mistiming it straight into the hands of Usman Khawaja at mid on. He takes a sitter and the Aussies get an opening. 99 needed off 90 balls.

FOUR! Top effort by Nathan Lyon (sub) but to no avail. Short delivery on middle and leg, Shai shuffles across and gets a good amount of his bat behind his pull shot. It speeds down to fine leg where Lyon tries to stop it with a dive. He does so initially but then the ball rolls over to the fence.

In the air... SAFE! Short in length and on middle, Holder pulls it aerially over square leg and Starc in the deep collects it on one bounce. The sun was staring down the fielder's eyes and hence he picked it late. Wonder what the sunglasses are doing on his cap. Could have attempted for a catch had he picked it early. Little moments.

Good length ball around off, Holder goes on his back foot and defends it off the inner half to mid-wicket.
Drinks break. This match is interestingly poised at the moment. 116 needed off 108 balls. Shai Hope has applied himself superbly to the demands of this run chase and is holding one end well. He just needs support from one end. Jason Holder is currently providing him that. Their target will be to narrow down the runs required as much as possible for their big hitters to finish it in a flourish. For Australia, they have to keep chipping away at the wickets to stay in the hunt. Pat Cummins will continue after the mini-break.

Not out! It has pitched marginally outside leg. Holder survives and shakes his head. The umpiring has not been at its best so far. Maxwell bowls fuller this time, around leg, Holder misses his sweep shot and is rapped on the pads. They appeal vociferously and the finger goes up. Holder opts for the DRS and saves himself.
Huge shout for an lbw! THE FINGER HAS GONE UP! Jason Holder is disappointed with the decision and takes the referral. Looks like touch and go.

Well stopped by Khawaja! A googly landing too full on middle, Hope drills it down the ground and it's destined to find the fence. But Khawaja comes running across to his left from long on and puts in a brilliant dive to stop it. He parries it towards Aaron Finch at long off who returns the ball in play. The batsmen take a couple of runs.
