World Cup 2019: Smith, Coulter-Nile, Starc shine as Australia beat West Indies

first_imgAustralia survived a top-order failure to bounce back spectacularly and beat West Indies by 15 runs at Trent Bridge on Thursday to record their second victory of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.Australia recovered from 79 for 5 to set West Indies a target of 289 after Steve Smith hit 73 while Nathan Coulter-Nile, at No.8, smashed 60-ball 92. The Australian fightback really started with a 68-run association between Smith and Alex Carey who got out for 45.West Indies would have fancied their chances to chase down 289 given their batting line-up. But Evin Lewis fell to Pat Cummins in the second over of the innings while Chris Gayle used the DRS successfully twice before running out of luck. The umpire failed to notice a no-ball from Mitchell Starc and Gayle was given out LBW off the next ball. Had the umpire called the no-ball, the next delivery would have been a free hit!Shai Hope and Nicholas Pooran then added 68 for the 3rd wicket before Pooran was done in by Adam Zampa for 40. Shimron Hetmyer looked good in his composed 21 but his run out pushed West Indies further back.Shai Hope was, however, batting solidly at the other end. He had only the all-rounders to bat with when West Indies skipper Jason Holder walked out with his team in a spot of bother at 149 for 4 in the 28th over. The two were involved in a steadying partnership but Hope became Pat Cummins’ second victim of the day as Australia began to consolidate their position.West Indies were still in the game for a while longer. When Carlos Brathwaite joined Holder at the crease, Windies needed 73 off 11.1 overs. Both men brought West Indies close with a 36-run stand but both men were removed by Mitchell Starc in the 46th over as Australia closed in on their 2nd win of the tournament.advertisementStarc meanwhile picked his 6th five-wicket haul when he dismissed Sheldon Cottrell. He also became the fastest to 150 ODI wickets.Earlier in the day, West Indies won the toss and decided to field. The Windies pacers were immediately in business. Oshane Thomas, Sheldon Cottrell and Andre Russell were fast and nasty – they took 2 wickets apiece while Carlos Brathwaite pocketed 3. Jason Holder took the 1 other wicket.Australia have rarely endured such a poor start in a World Cup innings. Aaron Finch, David Warner, Usman Khawaja and Glenn Maxwell fell within the first 8 overs as the Aussies slipped to 38 for 4. Marcus Stoinis looked promising but he fell to Holder.Steve Smith then took charge with Carey and the duo helped Australia wade past choppy waters. Smith was even booed when he raised his bat to celebrate a well-deserved fifty but he was unfazed. After Carey fell, Smith joined forces with Coulter-Nile who made the highest score by a No.8 in World Cups.Smith was removed by Oshane Thomas for 73 in the 45th over but by then, Australia were on the cusp of a challenging score. The focus was now on Coulter-Nile to see whether he could get to his hundred. But he fell 8 short in search of quick runs for his team.Australia will next take on India at The Oval on June 9 while West Indies play South Afica on June 10 in Southampton.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Tweeple salute Sheldon Cottrell for his magical catchAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Chris Gayle 3rd West Indian to score 1000 World Cup runsAlso Seelast_img

Sunrisers Hyderabad feel confident when David Warner is around: Deepak Hooda

first_img Akshay Ramesh New DelhiMarch 19, 2019UPDATED: March 19, 2019 11:42 IST David Warner blasted a quickfire fifty during a practice match for SRH (@SunRisers Photo)HIGHLIGHTSDavid Warner has always been an inspiration for the team: SRH all-rounder Deepak HoodaWarner returns to SRH after missing IPL 2018 over ball-tampering suspensionDeepak Hooda added he feels blessed to be sharing the dressing room with some of the best all-rounders at SRHAggression is a key component of David Warner’s game. Like many of his Australian counterparts, Warner doesn’t think twice about having a go at his opponents. However, the Australian in him takes a backseat with the responsibility of being a senior member at Sunrisers Hyderabad during Indian Premier League.Warner is back at Sunrisers Hyderabad after having missed IPL 2018 following a suspension over his involvement in ball-tampering. With the one-year suspension due to expire on March 30, Warner has arrived in Hyderabad in a bid to showcase his hunger in the lead up to the 2019 World Cup.While the upcoming season of IPL will be crucial for the Australian opener when it comes to his return to international cricket, SRH are more than happy to have Warner back in the squad.Young all-rounder Deepak Hooda, speaking to indiatoday.in, said the entire Sunrisers camp feels more confident with David Warner returning to the side ahead of IPL 2019, starting March 23.”David Warner, obviously, has always been an inspiration for the team. His attitude has always been to lead from the front. The whole team enjoys with him and feels more confident. When an international player of his stature comes into the team it boosts the morale of the rest of the players as well,” Hooda said.Warner, who has been a prolific run-scorer in IPL, had led Sunrisers Hyderabad to their maiden title in 2016. However, in his absence, the Sunrisers appointed Kane Williamson as their captain in 2018. The New Zealand captain didn’t disappoint as he led the team to the final wherein they lost to Chennai Super Kings.advertisement5??0?? for @davidwarner31.

Even last year we played the final under him. He spoke to the bowlers constantly, guided them in the death overs and made the correct field changes. All these small things matter a lot.”Hooda, who grabbed the limelight with his power-hitting at Rajasthan Royals in 2015, was bought by Sunrisers in the 2016 auction. The 23-year-old batting all-rounder has managed to chip in with some handy performances over the last three years.Not thinking about India call-up: Deepak Hooda is excited about sharing the dressing room with the best all-rounders at SRH (SRH Photo)HoodaHooda had been in the senior national selectors’ radar in the past but the Baroda all-rounder stresses he isn’t thinking about India call-up and that he is completely focussed on giving his best for Sunrisers in IPL 2019.”I am not thinking about the India call up now. I tend to focus on one thing at a time. Right now, my focus is completely on the IPL. If I perform well, then we will see where it takes me,” Hooda said.”When it comes to personal expectations, I want to fulfill whatever role the team wants me to play. There is a bit of pressure that is associated with an all-rounder. But at the end of the day, I want to enjoy cricket. That’s why I am playing the sport. I always look to react to situations.”Stressing he is blessed to learn from some of the best all-rounders at Sunrisers, Hooda said: “We have some of the world’s best all-rounders in SRH. There is [Mohammad] Nabi bhai, there, there is Shakib [Al Hasan] bhai. I have also played with Yusuf [Pathan] bhai for Baroda. These guys have a set thinking process when it comes to being an all-rounder and I have been able to observe and know that. As a youngster, I am excited to learn a lot of things from these players.”Also Read | IPL 2019: Steve Smith ready to work his magic in Jaipur for Rajasthan RoyalsAlso Read | Virat not a shrewd captain, can’t compare him with Dhoni and Rohit, says GambhirAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
