AUSTRALIA PLAYER MITCHELL STARC AT POST-MATCH NEWS CONFERENCE AFTER AUSTRALIA DEFEATED WEST INDIES IN CRICKET WORLD CUP MATCH 2.
(SOUNDBITE)(English) AUSTRALIA PLAYER MITCHELL STARC SAYING: "Yeah you always have to feel a little confident don't you, it's, yeah it was pretty touch and go there and, look we've always had the belief there, we've got plenty of good bowling in our line-up and we know we've got guys that can bowl to death.
We're always only a couple of wickets away and at the same time they were probably only a few sticks away from taking the game from us so, yeah, fantastic game of cricket today." 3.
WEST INDIES CRICKET CAPTAIN JASON HOLDER AT POST-MATCH NEWS CONFERENCE 4.
(SOUNDBITE)(English) WEST INDIES CRICKET CAPTAIN JASON HOLDER SAYING: "I think learning just needs to take place you know, guys just need to learn from the mistakes that they make.
Take a little bit more responsibility and chasing especially, you just need to take responsibility, and it's important that one of the top four batters be there at the very, very end.
I think one thing we can take from the Australians' performance was that Steve (Smith) batted quite deep and that's something we need from our top order, I think Shai Hope has been outstanding in that regard but it didn't go his way today but I think credit must be given to Australia.
I thought they came back and bowled really well with the old ball and created problems for us, we had to decide what we wanted to do in terms of playing it, or taking it on, or just knocking it around, you know, but credit must be given." STORY: Fast bowler Mitchell Starc produced a devastating display of death bowling as Australia beat West Indies by 15 runs at Trent Bridge for their second consecutive win in the Cricket World Cup on Thursday (June 6).
Chasing 289 for victory, West Indies got off to a poor start before Shai Hope (68) and Nicholas Pooran (40) laid the platform for the power-hitters, but the Starc-led Australian attack kept them on a tight leash, restricting them to 273-9.
After leg-spinner Adam Zampa removed Pooran, fast bowler Pat Cummins had Hope caught at mid-on in the 35th over to deliver a body blow to the Windies who never recovered.
Starc claimed Jason Holder (51), Carlos Brathwaite and Sheldon Cottrell in the final five overs to finish with 5-46 in his 10 overs.
Earlier, Nathan Coulter-Nile struck the highest World Cup score for a number eight batsman as his 92 took Australia to a competitive total after they lost their first five wickets for 79 runs.
Steve Smith (73) played the anchor role to perfection, combining with Coulter-Nile to stage a rescue act with a 102-run stand for the seventh wicket.
