Michael Holding slams umpiring in West Indies-Australia game, calls it ‘atrocious’

Adjust Comment Print

After being asked to bat, Australia had been revived from the perilous position of 79-5 in the 17th over, first by a stand of 68 between Steve Smith and Alex Carey, then by a more substantial alliance Smith (73) forged with the unlikely figure of Nathan Coulter-Nile. The number eight had scarcely played a convincing shot before he got to 50 but he was able to add 31 off another 16 balls before being finally dismissed.

West Indies opener Chris Gayle was the first of Starc's victims, out for 21.

Hope, who faced 105 balls and counted seven fours, posted 41 for the fifth wicket with Holder but his soft dismissal, caught at mid on off Cummins in the 35th over, sparked the slide for West Indies.

Zampa took the wicket of Nicholas Pooran and went for 58 runs in his 10 overs as Australia recorded their second straight win of the tournament with victory over Jason Holder's men in Nottingham. Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas, and Sheldon Cottrell all picked two wickets each, with Carlos taking 3.

The schedule has politicos gaming out when, if ever, impeachment proceedings would have to begin and when they become less likely. The Senate now has 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats and two independents who usually vote with the Democrats.

The West Indies successfully overturned four separate "out" decisions in their doomed chase of 289, while Gaffaney also missed a no-ball call the delivery before Gayle was dismissed.

New Zealand's top cricket umpire raised the ire of the West Indies and one of its bowling greats for several poor decisions against star batsman Chris Gayle in the 15-run loss to Australia on Friday (NZT).

West Indies legend Michael Holding labelled the umpiring as "atrocious", claiming they were being "intimidated" by over-appealing from the Australians.

I think that is how most of us expected it to be at this point - that there would be a lot of teams you expect to do well and then there would be a few surprise packages. However, a replay of the previous delivery showed Starc's front-foot had landed quite a few inches outside the popping crease, and meant that the 35-year-old had got out to a potential free-hit delivery.

Donald Trump Brags About The Amazing Attain He Had On Queen Elizabeth
There were occasional scuffles as some of the protestors confronted small pockets of Trump supporters. "Mr. Ivanka Trump walks with Britain's International Trade Secretary into the ballroom at Buckingham Palace.

And the West Indies lost their way.

They will now play India on Sunday. "I'm not in the team to make runs, hopefully the top order does that, so I wouldn't be surprised if I got dropped for the next game".

"(Jasprit) Bumrah we know is a very good new ball bowler and I'm sure he'll mix it up and bowl some short stuff and some full stuff", Ponting was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au. But if South Africa recover from anything like 37 for 4 on Monday and the skipper blames his batsmen or his fieldsmen, a multitude of that kind of comment may migrate to the mainstream media.
