And that brings us to the end of our coverage of the 10th match of the 2019 World Cup, with Australia walking away with a 15-run win, a tremendous recovery from the miserabe position they found themselves in when they were five down with just 79 on board. They've recorded their 10th ODI win on the trot, while West Indies have a lot to ponder over going into the next set of games. 

Do join us tomorrow in our coverage of the Pakistan-Sri Lanka encounter, which takes place at Bristol. For now, we bid you all good night!

Aaron Finch, Australia captain: We just kept hanging in there didn't we. Coulter-Nile, to play the way he did, was exceptional. He got an opportunity to bat a little longer, which was not ideal since the top order collapsed. For us to keep hanging in there and get 288 was excellent. You have to keep trying to get wickets. West Indies can be so destructive. Maybe get them to try a risk. Top order bar Steve was disappointing. With the ball, there's still some areas to improve. Two points with a lot of improvement to do. 

23:18 (IST)

Jason Holder, West Indies captain: Obviously we are disappointed. I thought we were well in the game. Just a few irresponsible shots when we probably just needed to grind it through. But I still think there's lots of positives to take out of this game. We dropped Coulter-Nile when he was about 60-odd and he got about another 30 runs. That was one pivotal moment but obviously the batting. If we came here at the start of the day and limited Australia to 280, we'd have taken that. The batters need to take the responsibility.

23:07 (IST)

Nathan Coulter-Nile is the Man of the Match for his 62-ball 90 batting at No 8

"I didn't think I'd get that much, but happy to. I thought I'd try and stick around for a bit. Luck went my way I guess. We back ourselves to defend anything. We could get bowled out for 150, we'd still back ourselves. The wicket was a bit up and down, but settled in. We were on track the whole way before Starcy took three or four in the end," says Coulter-Nile in the post-match chat. 

23:06 (IST)

Mitchell Starc has stamped his authority on this match. Australia have registered a fantastic win. West Indies will look back on this match and blame themselves. Australia will take great belief that they can win from any scenario. Coulter-Nile changed the course of the match with his innings. Australia will now go to London to take on India.

After 50 overs,West Indies 273/9 ( Ashley Nurse 19 , Oshane Thomas 0)

Coulter-Nile bowls out the final over. Nurse collects four consecutive boundaries after a couple of dots, but that only helps reduce the margin of defeat, which in turn could be beneficial for the West Indies from the Net Run Rate point of view. 


Australia win by 15 runs, collecting their second consecutive win at the start of their campaign. 

23:03 (IST)

FOUR! Four boundaries in a row, but that is not enough to prevent Australia from collecting their second win in as many games, beating West Indies by 15 runs! WI 273/9

23:02 (IST)

FOUR! Make that a hat-trick of fours for Nurse, pulling the short ball past short fine! WI 269/9

23:02 (IST)

FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries for Ashley Nurse! Driven through the extra cover region this time! WI 265/9

23:01 (IST)

FOUR! Pulled away behind point by Nurse, who finally connects from the middle after struggling with his timing so far. WI 261/9

22:59 (IST)

After 49 overs,West Indies 257/9 ( Ashley Nurse 3 , Oshane Thomas 0)

Dot off each of the first four deliveries of the over. Nurse drives the ball towards deep midwicket, where Coulter-Nile reaches in the nick of time to save a couple of runs for his side. Just one off the over. WI need 32 to win from 6 balls.

22:55 (IST)

After 48 overs,West Indies 256/9 ( Ashley Nurse 2 , Oshane Thomas 0)

Leg bye collected off the third delivery after a couple of dots. Starc castles Cottrell with a yorker to complete his five-for. Oshane Thomas is the last man to walk out, and he blocks out the remaining deliveries. Starc waks off to an applause, finishing with 5/46. WI need 33 to win from 12 balls.

22:52 (IST)

BOWLED EM! MItchell Starc completes his sixth ODI five-for, castling Cottrell with a yorker! Australia just one wicket away from victory now. WI 256/9

Cottrell b Starc 1(2)

22:49 (IST)

After 47 overs,West Indies 255/8 ( Ashley Nurse 2 , Sheldon Cottrell 1)

Nurse and Cottrell at the crease. Appeal for lbw in the fourth delivery turned down by the umpire, with Finch deciding against reviewing it. Replays show a thick inside edge. Three singles collected in the over. WI need 34 to win from 18 balls.

22:44 (IST)

After 46 overs,West Indies 252/8 ( Ashley Nurse 0 , )

Starc is brought back for the 46th over, and he will likely bowl the 48th as well. And he delivers for the Aussies, with Brathwaite perishing after mishitting a slower full toss. Starc then dismisses Holder three balls later to virtually end Windies' hopes in this game. WI need 37 to win from 24 balls.

22:44 (IST)

OUT! Holder departs, and that should virtually end West Indies' hopes! The Windies skipper attempts to pull a short ball that's aimed at his body, offering Zampa a simple catch at short fine in the end. WI 252/8

Holder c Zampa b Starc 51(57)

22:41 (IST)

OUT! Brathwaite gone! Slower full toss works wonderfully for Starc as Brathwaite mishits this down the ground. Finch moves back from mid on, and gobbles it down. WI 252/7

Brathwaite c Finch b Starc 16(17)

22:39 (IST)

West indies need to do this smartly. Five overs to go, Starc will bowl two, Coulter-Nile one and possibly Stoinis/Maxwell the other two. Finch needs to make some big decisions on when to bowl out Starc. Ashley Nurse is also a capable batsmen, but West Indies would want these two to be there until the end.

After 45 overs,West Indies 251/6 ( Jason Holder (C) 50 , Carlos Brathwaite 16)

Brathwaite starts off with a boundary down the ground. He then miscues the ball beyond mid on's reach off the next delivery. Holder just about manages to reach the striker's end after responding to a call for a single from Brathwaite in the third. Leg bye collected off the last ball. Cummins concedes eight off his last over, finishing with 2/41 from his quota. WI need 38 to win from 30 balls.

22:34 (IST)

FOUR! Brathwaite rides the bounce and slices the ball down the ground for a boundary! WI 247/6

22:33 (IST)

After 44 overs,West Indies 243/6 ( Jason Holder (C) 50 , Carlos Brathwaite 9)

Coulter-Nile into his ninth over. Holder opens the face of his bat and guides the ball towards third man for a brace off the second delivery. Pulls hard towards deep midwicket off the fourth ball to bring up his ninth ODI fifty. Brathwaite smacks the ball into the stands off the next delivery to take some pressure off his back. 10 off the over. WI need 46 to win from 36 balls.

22:32 (IST)

SIX! Whattey shot! After struggling with his timing in the previous over, Brathwaite smacks this out of the park to vent his frustration out. Steps forward and pulls this over the deep midwicket fence. WI 242/6

22:32 (IST)

FIFTY up for Jason Holder off as many deliveries, pulling the ball towards deep midwicket for a single to bring up the milestone for the ninth time in his career! WI 236/6

22:29 (IST)

After 43 overs,West Indies 233/6 ( Jason Holder (C) 47 , Carlos Brathwaite 2)

Cummins returns to the attack, keeping it tight by conceding just a single. Brathwaite, meanwhile, looks a little uncomfortable at the crease at the moment. WI need 56 to win from 42 balls.

22:24 (IST)

After 42 overs,West Indies 232/6 ( Jason Holder (C) 46 , Carlos Brathwaite 2)

Coulter-Nile continues from the other end. The bowler leaps up in the air after Brathwaite slices the ball in his direction, the chance being too high for up. Single off the third and fourth deliveries, followed by two dots. Just two off NCN's eighth over. WI need 57 to win from 48 balls.

22:21 (IST)

After 41 overs,West Indies 230/6 ( Jason Holder (C) 45 , Carlos Brathwaite 1)

Zampa concedes nine off his final over, with Holder collecting two boundaries, to finish with figures of 1/58. WI need 59 to win from 54 balls.

22:20 (IST)

FOUR! Another boundary to Holder in Zampa's last over, this one off an outside edge that sends the ball running away to the third man fence. WI 230/6

22:20 (IST)

FOUR! Driven through the extra cover region, has Jason Holder! WI 226/6

22:17 (IST)

After 40 overs,West Indies 221/6 ( Jason Holder (C) 37 , Carlos Brathwaite 0)

Coulter-Nile returns to the attack in the 40th over, conceding four off his seventh over, all of which are collected by Holder with a pull towards the deep midwicket for a boundary in the penultimate delivery. WI need 68 to win from 60 balls.

22:16 (IST)

FOUR! Heaved away towards the midwicket fence by Holder, who's now crucial to Windies' chances after the exit of Hope and Russell. WI 221/6

22:15 (IST)

After 39 overs,West Indies 217/6 ( Jason Holder (C) 33 , Carlos Brathwaite 0)

Russell collects another boundary, hammering the ball down the ground, but ends up paying the price for being too reckless, getting caught by Maxwell, who covers a lot of ground running from point. Seven runs and a crucial wicket from the over. WI need 72 to win from 66 balls.

22:14 (IST)

Russell's cameo comes to an end and Mitchell Starc wins the big battle. Fair to say, for the first time today, Australia are the favourites to win this match. Still 11 overs to go and with Starc along with Cummins only having four overs left between them one wonders why Russell would attempt such an adventurous stroke.  

Gaurav Joshi, Freelance cricket writer at Trent Bridge
22:14 (IST)
22:11 (IST)

OUT! Outstanding catch by Glenn Maxwell, running in the opposite direction from cover! Russell ended up playing a wild shot too many and pays the price for the same, getting a thick leading edge on this occasion. WI 216/6

Russell c Maxwell b Starc 15(11)

22:10 (IST)

FOUR! Drilled down the ground by Dre Russ! Near yorker from the left-pacer, and Russell nails his drive! WI 216/5

22:06 (IST)

After 38 overs,West Indies 210/5 ( Jason Holder (C) 32 , Andre Russell 11)

Big over for the Windies, with Andre Russell announcing himself at the crease with a six and a four. 12 off the over, one that brings down the required rate by a notch. Dre Russ, meanwhile, completes 1,000 ODI runs. WI need 79 off 72. 

22:05 (IST)

FOUR! A six and a four in three balls for Andre Russell, and the Aussies will be very worried right now. Smacks this over the bowler's head, the ball landing on the cushion and being adjudged a four in the end. WI 209/5

22:03 (IST)

SIX! Dre Russ takes two deliveries to make an impact, getting down on one knee and smoking it out of the ground for a maximum! 200 up for the Windies! WI 205/5

22:02 (IST)

After 37 overs,West Indies 198/5 ( Jason Holder (C) 31 , Andre Russell 0)

Starc returns to the attack, conceding seven off his seventh over, including a big hit over fine leg off a top-edge off Holder's bat. WI need 91 to win off 78 balls. 

22:01 (IST)

Shai Hope what have you done? That was in all likelihood going to be Cummins' last ball of the spell. In the meantime, Holder is lucky to escape a brain-fade trying to sweep a full ball from Zampa.  Starc vs Russell could well decide the game. Russel was fantastic in the IPL, but how does he cope with Starc and when does he attack Zampa? 

Gaurav Joshi, Freelance cricket writer at Trent Bridge
22:01 (IST)
22:00 (IST)

SIX! Top-edge off Holder's bat carries the ball all the way beyond the fine leg fence! WI 197/5

21:58 (IST)

After 36 overs,West Indies 191/5 ( Jason Holder (C) 24 , Andre Russell 0)

The on-field umpires continue to have a torrid time, with Ruchira Palliyaguruge raising his finger after an lbw appeal from Zampa against Holder. The Windies skipper decides to review it, and the ball's found to be missing leg by a fair bit. "Atrocius bit of umpire," goes on-air commentator Michael Holding. Just one off Zampa's eighth over. WI need 98 off 84. 

21:52 (IST)

After 35 overs,West Indies 190/5 ( Jason Holder (C) 23 , )

Excellent over from Cummins, one in which he gives away just two singles, before getting rid of Shai Hope off the last delivery. Massive blow to the Windies, losing the man who was expected to anchor the innings all the way through. WI need 99 to win off 90 balls. 

21:51 (IST)

OUT! Massive blow for West Indies, as Hope departs for 68 after chipping the ball straight to Khawaja at mid on! WI 190/5

Hope c Khawaja b Cummins 68(105)

21:46 (IST)

After 34 overs,West Indies 188/4 ( Shai Hope (W) 67 , Jason Holder (C) 22)

Maxwell concedes 10 off his sixth over, including back-to-back boundaries to the West Indies skipper off the first two balls of the over, as well as a couple of singles. 

21:45 (IST)

FOUR! Back-to-back fours to the West Indies skipper, this time driven through the cover region. WI 186/4

21:45 (IST)

This game is evenly poised. Three DRS decision overturned, the one against Holder might prove to be the most pivotal. Starc and Cummins between them still have 7 overs, but it is other 10 that West Indies will target. The pitch is abrasive and if Starc can get some reverse swing it could become a challenge. 

Gaurav Joshi, Freelance cricket writer at Trent Bridge
21:45 (IST)
21:45 (IST)

FOUR! Holder gets an outside edge that sends the ball running away to third man. WI 182/4

21:44 (IST)

After 33 overs,West Indies 178/4 ( Shai Hope (W) 66 , Jason Holder (C) 13)

Holder heaves the ball toward deep square leg for a single off the second delivery. Hope then collects a boundary off the penultimate delivery, guiding the ball towards the fine leg fence. 

Australia vs West Indies, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Updates: Coulter-Nile bowls out the final over. Nurse collects four consecutive boundaries after a couple of dots, but that only helps reduce the margin of defeat, which in turn could be beneficial for the West Indies from the Net Run Rate point of view. Australia win by 15 runs, collecting their second consecutive win at the start of their campaign.

Australia vs West Indies, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Preview: Justin Langer has hailed the West Indies' "Calypso cricket", admitting they were his heroes when he was growing up as he prepares Australia to face their current battery of fast bowlers.

The two teams, who have won seven out of the 11 World Cups so far between them, meet at Trent Bridge on Thursday after both cruised to comfortable opening victories.

Head coach Langer said defending champions Australia would need to adjust their mindset to take on the West Indies quicks and other fast bowlers at the tournament in England and Wales.

"We've probably spent four months thinking and playing against spin bowling," he said on Tuesday.

"We have to adapt to the West Indies no doubt, who have got a number of good, fast bowlers. South Africa will be the same. England will be the same. Have to adapt our game plan and adapt pretty quickly.

"Obviously a very dangerous team the way they bat and aggressive bowling, but they've got weaknesses as well and we're playing pretty good cricket."

West Indies, who won the first two World Cups, in 1975 and 1979, were the dominant force in the world game for two decades and boasted a succession of world-class fast bowlers and thrilling batsmen.

"When I was a kid it was Calypso cricket, and I think we're seeing plenty of signs of Calypso cricket," said Langer said.

"Running and bowling fast. They're not necessarily going to be bowling the same spot every ball, but going to be exciting to watch. They all try to hit sixes most balls so Darren Bravo's probably a little bit more unorthodox.

"Always exciting playing the West Indies. When I was growing up they were my heroes."
