Cricket World Cup: Video and stats highlight from Australia v West Indies match

Australia won the match by 15 runs.

The most tipsy topsy match of the World Cup so far. There was a shift of power balance after every ten overs. Though the result and last 5 overs of the game weren’t as exciting as the rest of 95 overs, and it was a terrific comeback by the Australian cricket team.

After winning the toss, West Indies opted to bowl first. They struck early on and removed the dangerous openers Finch and Warner in the space of two overs. Australia lost Khawaja, Maxwell, and Stoinis within the first 17 overs of the match, struggling at 79 for 5.

Watch – Australia Innings (Fall of Wickets)

At 79 for 5, it looked like Australia will be bundled out under 200, and would be an easy chase for West Indies. However, Australia’s never say die spirit kept them in the match. Steve Smith, the only top-order batsman who survived so far, was joined by wicket-keeper Carey. The pair added 68 runs for the 5th wicket in which the bulk of runs scored by Carey (45).

Still, 20 overs were left in the innings, and Australia desperately wanted someone to stay on the wicket and support Smith for a decent score to defend. The number 8, Coulter-Nile swung the match in Australia’s favor by his brutal onslaught. He smashed 92 runs off just 60 balls, helping Australia to reach a score of 288 in 49 overs.

Like Australia, West Indies also didn’t have a great start. They lost the opener Lewis in the second over of the match. Gayle smashed four boundaries before being given LBW by the umpire. Shai Hope and Pooran added 68 runs for the 3rd wicket, the highest partnership for West Indian innings. The West Indies was looked all good till 45th over to win the match.

The West Indian batsmen played too many dot balls and tried to compensate with boundaries. This tactic hurt them a lot as they missed too many singles and lost wickets in trying to take additional risk in hitting boundaries. Especially Russell Arnold threw away his wicket, cost them the match.
