Shaheen becomes youngest bowler to claim four-wicket haul in World Cup

Shaheen becomes youngest bowler to claim four-wicket haul in World Cup

Australia's ability to build in to a tournament and peak when it matters has been on show in their run to the World Cup semi-finals, with an honest team meeting after defeat to India focusing minds. Mitchell Starc then corralled a record third World Cup five-for, as a relentless, ruthless and (admittedly) slightly hotchpotch attack dismantled New Zealand.

The International Cricket Council said in a statement: "We are aware of some scuffles among a minority of fans and are now working with the venue security team and the local police force, West Yorkshire Police, to ensure there are no further incidents".

"We're not quite there yet".

At that stage, they needed 72 from 11 overs, but Imad - who should have been caught in the covers off Nabi when Afghan inexplicably lost sight of the ball - added 50 in eight overs with Shadab, whose late run-out made little difference. "So it's something that we're really striving to play for each other and win for each other".

They travel to Manchester on Sunday and face South Africa (2-5) on Saturday night with the past two champions - Australia and India - shaping as the likely finalists.

Behrendorff came into Australia's side last summer with the team at its lowest, amid a run of 21 losses in 25 games.

Kiwi superstar Trent Boult said it was Australia's to lose.

Russian Federation is under punitive sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union and wants them lifted. But he added: "Some things do appear excessive to us".


Warner and Smith were booed on and off the field following their recent return to worldwide cricket after they were both banned for 12 months for their roles in a ball-tampering scandal.

"They are performing well and there's only a couple of weeks left, they'll be the ones to beat", Boult said. Afghanistan end their World Cup campaign against West Indies on July 4 in Leeds.

Usman Khawaja (88) and Alex Carey (71) ensured the holders gave their bowlers something to defend, with Lockie Ferguson and Jimmy Neesham taking two wickets apiece on a glorious afternoon.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan (117 off 109) was chief destroyer that day but a broken thumb suffered early in that innings has ruled him out for the tournament. Know how to win a World Cup (or five).

"I've been fortunate enough to be there and you do get in a bit of a bubble".

"Ladies and gentlemen, could I remind you please to keep your mobile phones on silent so that they do not disturb the players during the game", advised the match-day announcer, straining to be heard above the deafening din a good hour or so before a ball had been bowled. "From all reports, it's been a fantastic feel around the group in the UAE and India and to play some fantastic cricket heading into that April break, was probably the momentum that the group was after heading into this tournament", Starc said.
