HIGHLIGHTS

  • 23:03 (IST)

    AUSTRALIA WIN: Coulter-Nile comes on for the final over and Windies need 32 to win. He gets two fours on the trot but that is not enough for a victory. In fact make that three in a row. And Nurse ends it with a four too. In the end Windies fall short by 15 runs. 

  • 22:52 (IST)

    OUT: Starc has bowled exceptionally well. He has bagged four important wickets and put his team on the cusp of a victory. With 33 needed from just 16 balls, the match looks all but over. And he gets another one. He yorks Cottrell for 1. Windies are 256/9. 

  • 22:44 (IST)

    OUT: Here is the second wicket in the over for Starc. He tries to pull but doesn't get it from the middle of the bat. Holder goes for 51. Windies are now out of the contest at 252/8 in 46 overs. 

  • 22:41 (IST)

    OUT: The good part for Australia is that they still have two overs from Starc. And the lanky pacer strikes. Brathwaite tries to go for a big one but ends up giving a catch to Finch. It's 252/7. 

  • 22:33 (IST)

    FIFTY FOR HOLDER: He has played a captain's innings and has kept Windies afloat in this match. And in the same over Coulter-Nile is smacked for a six over midwicket. This is getting tantalisingly close. Windies are 243/6 and they need 46 in 36 balls. 

  • 22:11 (IST)

    OUT: Russell, after showing a glimpse of what he can do, gives away a simple catch to Maxwell in deep. He departs for 15 as Windies are 216/6. 

  • 22:05 (IST)

    SIX, SIX: Zampa starts a fresh over and he is greeted with a humongous six by Russell. And he follows it up with a four over the bowler's head. Are we seeing a Russell special here? It's 210/5 after 38 overs. 

  • 22:01 (IST)

    SIX: This is what was required for the Windies — a six. Starc bowls a short one and Holder pulls it over fine leg for a six. Windies need a lot more of those. They still have the players to do the job for them. After 37 overs it's 198/5. 

  • 21:51 (IST)

    OUT: The match is getting close. Holder and Hope have stitched a partnership of over 40 already and the target is below 100 now. And that's when Hope committs an error. He tries to flick Cummins but gives a simple catch to Khawaja. Windies are now 190/5 in 35 overs. 

  • 21:28 (IST)

    MISS: Now Hope and Holder are looking to chase down the runs. They certainly have the firepower in their ranks to achieve the target. But the key will be a big partnership here. But Maxwell has a wicket here. Holder tries to sweep, but instead the ball crashes into his pads. He survives though. It's 160/4. 

  • 21:20 (IST)

    OUT: And this is the wicket that Australia were looking for. There is a confusion between the two batsmen and Hetmyer, the aggressor, has to go for 21. Windies are now 150/4. 

  • 21:16 (IST)

    FOUR, FOUR: Hope has suddenly shifted gears. He slams Coulter-Nile for a couple of fours. This is great batting by the Windies. And that also brings up the fifty for Hope. Windies are now 149/3 after 27 overs. 

  • 21:09 (IST)

    FOUR: And suddenly there is a flurry of boundaries for the Windies. Hetmyer pulls Coulter-Nile well and dispatches the ball for a four. This is excellent batting by the Windies. After 25 overs the score has moved to 133/5.

  • 20:47 (IST)

    OUT: A disappointing end to Pooran's master-class. He is out for 40 off Zampa as Finch pouches the ball. Aussies get their third wicket and now certainly are the favourites to win the match. It's 99/3. 

23:06 (IST)
23:03 (IST)

AUSTRALIA WIN: Coulter-Nile comes on for the final over and Windies need 32 to win. He gets two fours on the trot but that is not enough for a victory. In fact make that three in a row. And Nurse ends it with a four too. In the end Windies fall short by 15 runs. 

22:58 (IST)
22:52 (IST)

OUT: Starc has bowled exceptionally well. He has bagged four important wickets and put his team on the cusp of a victory. With 33 needed from just 16 balls, the match looks all but over. And he gets another one. He yorks Cottrell for 1. Windies are 256/9. 

22:44 (IST)

OUT: Here is the second wicket in the over for Starc. He tries to pull but doesn't get it from the middle of the bat. Holder goes for 51. Windies are now out of the contest at 252/8 in 46 overs. 

22:41 (IST)

OUT: The good part for Australia is that they still have two overs from Starc. And the lanky pacer strikes. Brathwaite tries to go for a big one but ends up giving a catch to Finch. It's 252/7. 

22:33 (IST)

FIFTY FOR HOLDER: He has played a captain's innings and has kept Windies afloat in this match. And in the same over Coulter-Nile is smacked for a six over midwicket. This is getting tantalisingly close. Windies are 243/6 and they need 46 in 36 balls. 

22:29 (IST)

Cummins comes up with an excellent over and doesn't give away any width to Brathwaite to freeze his arms. As a result only one run comes from the over. But Windies are still in the game. It's 233/6 and they require 56 from 42 balls. 

22:21 (IST)

This match is still not over as Holder smacks two fours in Zampa over. Aussie bowlers must be feeling the heat at the moment. They need a wicket whereas Windies need a big over. After 41 overs it's 230/6. 

22:14 (IST)
22:11 (IST)

OUT: Russell, after showing a glimpse of what he can do, gives away a simple catch to Maxwell in deep. He departs for 15 as Windies are 216/6. 

22:05 (IST)

SIX, SIX: Zampa starts a fresh over and he is greeted with a humongous six by Russell. And he follows it up with a four over the bowler's head. Are we seeing a Russell special here? It's 210/5 after 38 overs.

21:56 (IST)

Ordinary day for the umpires continues. Zampa hits the ball straight on Holder's pads, and he is given out. But the replays show the ball was missing the stumps. After 35.4 overs it's 190/5. 

21:51 (IST)

OUT: The match is getting close. Holder and Hope have stitched a partnership of over 40 already and the target is below 100 now. And that's when Hope committs an error. He tries to flick Cummins but gives a simple catch to Khawaja. Windies are now 190/5 in 35 overs. 

21:41 (IST)

Cummins comes back into the attack. And he almost had the wicket of Hope who is batting so well. It would be fair to say that he is standing between victory and Australia at the moment. After 32.4 overs it's 174/4. 

21:32 (IST)
21:28 (IST)

MISS: Now Hope and Holder are looking to chase down the runs. They certainly have the firepower in their ranks to achieve the target. But the key will be a big partnership here. But Maxwell has a wicket here. Holder tries to sweep, but instead the ball crashes into his pads. He survives though. It's 160/4.

OUT: And this is the wicket that Australia were looking for. There is a confusion between the two batsmen and Hetmyer, the aggressor, has to go for 21. Windies are now 150/4. 

21:16 (IST)

FOUR, FOUR: Hope has suddenly shifted gears. He slams Coulter-Nile for a couple of fours. This is great batting by the Windies. And that also brings up the fifty for Hope. Windies are now 149/3 after 27 overs. 

21:09 (IST)

FOUR: And suddenly there is a flurry of boundaries for the Windies. Hetmyer pulls Coulter-Nile well and dispatches the ball for a four. This is excellent batting by the Windies. After 25 overs the score has moved to 133/5.

21:03 (IST)

A lot of hopes rest on the shoulders of Shimron Hetmyer, who is a capable batsman. But the problem Windies will face is the strike rate of Shai Hope. He has played over 60 deliveries and is striking at less than 50. It's 121/3 now. 

20:56 (IST)
20:47 (IST)

OUT: A disappointing end to Pooran's master-class. He is out for 40 off Zampa as Finch pouches the ball. Aussies get their third wicket and now certainly are the favourites to win the match. It's 99/3. 

20:41 (IST)
20:39 (IST)

Pooran is continuing to take his team forward single-handedly. He smashes Stionis for a six over the keeper's head. Excellent batting this, but he needs support from Hope at the other end. It;s 88/2 after 17 overs. 

20:33 (IST)

There was a chance of a run out for Windies. Pooran plays one straight back to the bowler and Zampa gets a touch. The ball hits the stumps at non-strikers end. But Hope survives. After 16 overs it's 80/2. 

20:27 (IST)

Windies are not getting runs here. They need to target a bowler, or the match will slip from Windies' grip. Either Pooran or Hope will have to go for the shots. After 15 overs Windies are 78/2. 

20:24 (IST)
20:13 (IST)

It's a good battle between bat and ball going on at the moment. While Pooran is looking in great form, Hope is sweating it out in the middle. Windies are now 57/2 in 10.5 overs.

Australia vs West Indies Live Score, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match in Nottingham Highlights: As it Happened

Australia vs West Indies Live Score, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, AUS vs WI Match at Nottingham Latest Updates:AUSTRALIA WIN: Coulter-Nile comes on for the final over and Windies need 32 to win. He gets two fours on the trot but that is not enough for a victory. In fact make that three in a row. And Nurse ends it with a four too. In the end Windies fall short by 15 runs.

Australia vs West Indies in the ICC World Cup 2019 on June 6 (Thursday) will be broadcast on the Star Sports network and Live streaming will be available on Hotstar. The match will be played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham and will begin at 1500 HRS IST. (AUS vs WI live).

PREVIEW: A year before the ICC World Cup, Australia and West Indies were far away from the positive mental head-space that the two sides currently find themselves in ahead of their second match of the tournament. While Australia were reeling in the aftermath of the ball-tampering scandal with bans over Steve Smith and David Warner, West Indies barely managed to squeeze in through the World Cup qualifiers.

Now a game into the 2019 World Cup, both sides are looking like force to reckon with as they get ready to face off at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Thursday. The Windies were fearsome in their opening game against Pakistan for 105, bouncing out their opponents on a good batting surface.

The short and quick attack led by Oshane Thomas, Andre Russell and Sheldon Cottrell will once again come out firing against Australia, with whom they share a long history in the World Cup. The men from the Caribbean won their first World Cup title with a win over Australia in 1975 at the Lord’s.

The West Indies are explosive with both ball and bat. Russell started the rout with the ball against Pakistan, bouncing out a couple of batsmen but had a slight niggle with his knee after the game. However, the all-rounder has been cleared for the crucial tie against Australia.

Veteran Chris Gayle warmed up nicely for the tournament with a blazing fifty against Pakistan and he will be dangerman at the top of the order. Shai Hope, who opened the batting with Gayle, has been in sublime form especially in ODI cricket. He averages over 50 in 55 ODIs with six centuries in this format.

But Jason Holder’s side can’t take Australia lightly who have won their last eight ODIs in a row. Australia stormed back to win the ODI series in India 3-2, then defeated Pakistan in UAE and started off with a comprehensive win over Afghanistan.

The defending World Cup champions have been bolstered by the return of Warner and Smith in their line-up. Warner scored an unbeaten 89 and skipper Aaron Finch also cashed in during their opening fixture.

The Australian pace attack is full of zing as well led by fit-again Mitchell Starc and also features the likes of Pat Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile. Adam Zampa gives them the edge in the spin-bowling department as he showed against Afghanistan apart from one wayward over.

Last Five ODIs

Australia: WWWWW

They came to England on the back of series wins over India and Pakistan — both away from home and started off with a comprehensive win over Afghanistan in their first match.

West Indies: LWLLW

They lost the tri-series final to Bangladesh, also featuring Ireland but hammered Pakistan in their opening game of the tournament.

Players to watch out for

Australia: Mitchell Starc - Skipper Finch will bank on his extra pace to push the West Indies power-hitters on to the backfoot. The highest wicket-taker from the 2015 World Cup generated good steam against Afghanistan as well as the warm-up games against West Indies.

West Indies: Oshane Thomas - He might only be 22 years of age but Thomas was the quickest of the West Indies bowler on show against Pakistan. He has now captured nine wickets in his last two ODIs – following up on his career-best 5-21 when he bowled out England for 113 in March.

Team News/Availability

Australia: Coach Justin Langer has already indicated that the team will go in with a unchanged playing XI for their second match which means Nathan Lyon will continue to warm the bench.

West Indies: There were a couple of injury concerns with Andre Russell and Chris Gayle but both of them should be fit to start the game on Thursday.

Squads:

Australia: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Shaun Marsh, Alex Carey (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Pat Cummins, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Nathan Lyon

West Indies: Jason Holder (c), Fabian Allen, Darren Bravo, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Oshane Thomas
