World Cup: West Indies win toss, opt to bowl


Australia and West Indies face off at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Thursday in the World Cup 2019. The power-hitting West Indies currently sit on top of the points table due to the superior net run rate compared to holders Australia.

The two teams, who have won seven out of the 11 World Cups so far between them, meet after both cruised to comfortable opening victories.

Australia head coach Justin Langer said defending champions Australia would need to adjust their mindset to take on the West Indies quicks and other fast bowlers at the tournament in England and Wales.

West Indies had demolished the Pakistan batting line-up with a barrage of short-pitch deliveries and ultimately bowled them out for mere 105 in their opening encounter in the ongoing World Cup.
