West Indies vs Australia: Sensational bowling by Mitchell Starc and a fiery show by Nathan Coulter-Nile with the willow guided Australia to a 15-run victory against West Indies at Trent Bridge on Thursday. Starc finished with 5/46 to restrict West Indies to 273/9 after Australia, riding on Coulter-Nile’s 60-ball-92, set 289 despite the early meltdown of the top order.
West Indies got off to a poor start as both openers Ewin Lewis (1) and Chris Gayle (21) fell cheaply in the World Cup match at Trent Bridge. Lewis was dismissed in the second over by Pat Cummins while Chris Gayle was sent back by Mitchell Starc in the sixth over. While West Indies kept losing wickets at regular intervals, Shai Hope and skipper Jason Holder kept the Carribean side in the hunt.
Hope scored 68 off 105 balls, while Holder made 51 off 57 before falling to Starc in his final spell. Australia next play India on Sunday.
