Australia's Mitchell Starc fastest to 150 ODI wickets

Australia's Mitchell Starc fastest to 150 ODI wickets

102 - Nathan Coulter-Nile and Steve Smith formed a 102-run seventh wicket stand against West Indies in their 15-run win on Thursday, which is Australia's highest seventh wicket partnership in World Cup history.

West Indies wicket-keeper Shai Hope admits the manner of defeat to Australia was tough to take as his side let a promising start slip away at Trent Bridge.

Holding was unhappy with a series of controversial calls during the West Indies' run chase, including the incorrect dismissal of opener Chis Gayle.

"I am sorry but the umpiring in this game has been atrocious".

But it's all about winning those close games and getting through, that's what they are playing for really, it doesn't matter if you win all nine games if you have a shocker in the semi-final.

A three-time World Cup victor himself, Ponting said he would discuss the matter with Khawaja and Glenn Maxwell, who responded to one short delivery with an unusual attempt to pull the ball, only to lose his wicket. "They are being intimidated, that means they are weak".

The Australians immediately went up in appeal as they felt they had heard something as the ball passed the bat and umpire Chris Gaffney had no hesitation in raising his finger.

The first came after he was caught behind, with replays showing the ball had missed his bat and instead nicked the stump.

The undefeated Australians also came under fire for their over-enthusiastic appeals to the umpires, which led to the controversial calls. Umpire Chris Gaffaney gave batsman Chris Gayle out on two balls in the third over. Australia won by 15 runs to secure their second victory in as many matches in the World Cup so far.

West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite also vented his anger against the umpires.

"I don't know if I'll be fined for saying it but I just think that the umpiring was a bit frustrating", Brathwaite told reporters. "It was frustrating. It sent ripples through the dressing room", he added. "Most definitely, as long as you get wickets with the new ball you always put teams under pressure", Hope said. "They've shown us that they can build", Hope said.

After Australia took the field having posted an impressive 288 following their early struggles, Coulter-Nile replaced Cummins to bowl the eighth over with West Indies at 41/2.

Remarkably, it marked Starc's first five-wicket haul in ODIs since he tore New Zealand's lower order apart in the Eden Park group stage match in 2015.

"I'm not a technology person, I don't know why that happens, I can just say what I have seen happen over the past few years".
