Wicketkeeper-batsman Alex Carey chipped in with a 55-ball 45, which was studded with five boundaries, for an invaluable 68-run stand for the sixth wicket with Smith to resurrect the Australian innings before Coulter-Nile played the innings of his life.
Australia and West Indies are facing off in the 10th match of the World Cup. Australia lost the toss and was put in to bat by the West Indies captain Jason Holder. Both teams are fresh from wins in their previous matches and will hope to continue their winning streak.
The chase will be an interesting one as Jason Holder has a strong batting line up with star batsmen like Chris Gayle and Andre Russell. Russell did not get a chance to bat in their last match as the West Indies batsman chased the small total with ease.
