Aussies win by 15 runs in a great game of cricket :clapping.

Aussies  288
Windies 9/273

Starc with a 5-for.
Oshane Thomas’ catch to remove Smith might have been one of the greatest catches I’ve ever seen.

Great resolve from the middle - lower order to hold firm and put up a competitive total when being peppered with the short stuff.

Great bowling plans and a few key wickets made for a great “backs against the wall” win.

However, we won’t get away with that shyte v India.

You're not going to win too many games conceding 350 runs especially to India. It's the highest ever score against Australia in a World Cup. The Indian top order got hold of Starc and Zampa.

Our top order kept up with the Indian 'worm' until the 40th over when we lost 3 quick wickets. Game over after that despite Carey's quick fire 50. Just too difficult chasing 115 runs in the last 10 overs with no enough wickets in hand.

India 5/352

Aussies 316

Pathetic batting collapse has wasted the flyer Finch and Warner got us off to.

We lost 9-118 and our last 6 for just 30 runs :facepalm after being 1/189 in the 28th over.

Once again we also failed to bat out the 50 overs.

Aussies 307 (49 overs)

Warner 107 (111)
Finch  82 (84)
Smith 10
Maxwell 20
S.Marsh 23
Khawaja 18
Carey 20
C-Nile 2
Cummins 2
Starc  3
Richardson 1*

Amir got 5/30.

Pakistan 266 all out. So the Aussies won by 41 runs.

Cummins the best with 3/33.

Similar bowling effort to the West Indies game. Inconsistent overall and our 4th/5th bowling options are a worry but we were able to pick up (some lucky) wickets along the way when we needed to.

Aussies win by 87 runs and jump to the top of the table for the time being.

Aussies  7/334 (50 overs) .... Finch 153, Smith 73, Maxwell 46*, Warner 26.

Sri Lanka  247 (45.5 overs) ... Starc 4/55, Richardson 3/47, Cummins 2/38, Behrendorff 1/59.

At on stage SL were 1/153 in the 24th over but we then rolled them for 9/94.
