West Indies quicks rekindle memories of World Cup glory

Share

Australia recovered from an very bad start to beat West Indies by 15 runs in a wonderful World Cup encounter at Trent Bridge.

"For one, even when I was playing they are not as strict as they are now".

Holder had two incorrect decisions reversed, first off Maxwell and then Zampa.

And when they defeated England four years later in another Lord's final to retain their title, the West Indies did so with the original "fearsome foursome" of Andy Roberts, Michael Holding, Colin Croft and Joel Garner.

"I am sorry but the umpiring in this game has been atrocious", news.com.au quoted Holding as saying in commentary during the TV broadcast.

"West Indies will clearly be one of those sides to keep an eye on, they look really unsafe, but Australia are progressing nicely so far and will be happy with their start to the tournament", Border added.

Mitchell Starc derailed West Indies' chase when he dismissed Holder and Carlos Brathwaite in the same over.

Australia are mindful he has not always been fully fit when facing them, and that could again be the case this time as Gayle contends with a back niggle.

"You are allowed to appeal, you do not appeal two, three, four times to the umpire".

'I guess honest mistakes from the umpires, I don't want to get into the officiating part'.

"It's not ideal for the top order to miss out and put us in that position but even with the ball we hung in there and I'm really proud of the boys today". "I just think we just need to be aggressive, continue to be aggressive, smart aggression, and just continue to look to take wickets", Holder said.

The Aussies, who had eased past Afghanistan in their first match, were reduced to 38/4 inside the first eight overs after being asked to bat as the Windies pacers extracted a lot of bounce and seam movement from the Trent Bridge track initially. After arriving at the wicket with just 20 overs remaining, Coulter-Nile plundered his highest score in any format and first global half-century.

Ball-tracking confirms ball was clipping leg-stump on umpire's call.

Australia will now face India on June 9.

Captain Aaron Finch brought back Starc and he brought down the West Indies, winning by 15 runs.

The player of the 2015 tournament picked up the first five-wicket haul of the 2019 tournament.

I am surprised Andre Russell and Jason Holder didn't bowl out their overs, but it was a great performance from Coulter-Nile and the spring in the step was evident in the field early on. In an 11-ball burst across two spells, Starc had 4-2. Yes. 4-2.
