Afghanistan's Mohammad Shahzad Ruled Out Of World Cup 2019 With Knee Injury

Nathan Coulter-Nile played the "innings of his life" to save Australia at Trent Bridge. Australia had a taste of West Indies' short-ball tactics in that match and are bracing for more of the same in Nottingham.

Nathan Coulter-Nile and Steve Smith make a fabulous fightback as Australia script a famous win against the West Indies.

After Smith rescued Australia from an embarrassing top-order collapse, he looked set to threaten for three figures in just his second official game back in the side.

It was a remarkable display of athleticism and quick thinking.

Babar showed his vast potential by smashing 63 from 66 balls to lead the Pakistan assault as they piled on 348-8 in their shock win over tournament favourites England on Monday.

"The players have to realise that this is not Twenty20". They were just as aggressive as six days ago - Oshane Thomas' roughed up Uswan Khawaja, smacking him in the grille with one ball - but not as precise.

During their match against South Africa, the Indian bowling played a vital role in restricting the opponents to a below-par total.

But Naib said they were a more mature and confident unit now, with the potential to shock the more-established teams. "I'm still feeling positive about the West Indies overall".

When will Australia vs West Indies match take place? West Indies captain Jason Holder made a change to the team.

Mitchell Starc must have feared luck had abandoned him when technology twice reprieved Chris Gayle off his bowling but the left-arm paceman had the last laugh.

Afghanistan's Mohammad Shahzad claims the catch to dismiss Sri Lanka's Kusal Perera during the Cricket World Cup group stage match against Afghanistan at the Cardiff Stadium, Wales, Tuesday June 4, 2019.

"It was probably touch and go there", the seamer told reporters.

He added: "Regardless of what happens we have to play cricket on the day".

Ben Stokes took time to settle himself in as he scored his first 20 runs off 26 deliveries. They also had to deal with some poor calls from the umpires, four of which were overturned on review. "They are being intimidated, that means they are weak".

"This has been an atrocious bit of umpiring by both (Gaffaney and Palliyaguruge)".
