Sports desk The 10th World Cup match is being played in Nottingham between the West Indies and Australia.

Coulter-Nile insists he is not bothered by the competition for spots. His blistering assault off 60 balls featuring eight fours and four sixes also saw him beat former Zimbabwe worldwide Heath Streak's previous World Cup best by a No 8 of 72 before, in sight of a hundred, he drove Carlos Brathwaite to Holder at long-off.

But with games at the ground against the West Indies and later Bangladesh in this year's World Cup, that quickly needs to change.

Babar Azam has scored nine centuries in 64 ODIs and will be looking to make his presence felt against Sri Lanka.

Following their 15-run loss against Australia on Thursday, the West Indies would like to bounce back with a win against the struggling Proteas, who are ranked third in the ODI (One Day International) team rankings.

The team who is known for losing World Cup games are having a bad start at the tournament haled by the hosts England.

Maradona wants to head Man United
The controversial Argentinian has endured a mixed managerial career, leading his country to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The former Argentina forward also had a dig at the club's record signing: "With United I liked Ander Herrera ".

So many times in the past we have seen cricketers coming into the World Cup with so many aspirations, but ended up getting no games. For Australia, Pat Cummins will play a crucial role with the ball, while for West Indies, all eyes will be on Oshane Thomas and Jason Holder.

His successful catch likely overtakes Ben Stokes' over the head effort from England's win over Pakistan in the tournament opener.

Cottrell made an outstanding one-handed catch near the boundary and, with the momentum carrying him over, he managed to throw the ball up, keeping it inbounds while he ran over the boundary, gathered himself, then came back in to secure the catch. Both have two victories from as many matches.

"It's important that you turn up with the right attitude and the right intent in them first ten overs, bat or ball".

"Stranger things have happened in the past in World Cups in any sport".

And Hope believes West Indies can continue to reap success with this aggressive approach early in the innings. I think over the last little while we have been aware that teams are going to use it [the short ball] a lot more and that is one of our plans, so we have been facing a lot of it in the nets as well. But that's how cricket plays and we know Australia are a quality side.
