After suffering three straight defeats in the ongoing World Cup, de Viliers offered to come out of retirement and join the squad, but his requests were denied by South Africa Cricket Board.

News broke last Thursday alleging that De Villiers, who retired from worldwide cricket in May previous year, had made himself available to the national side just hours before the squad was announced on April 18.

West Indies paceman Sheldon Cottrell twice got to use his trademark wicket celebration - the military-style salute - when he had Hashim Amla (6) caught by Chris Gayle at slip and Aiden Markram (5) caught behind.

"One thing is for sure, it's good for global cricket to have the West Indies playing the brand of cricket they are". The Jason Holder-captained team emphasis Pakistan by seven wickets but sank to a 15-manage defeat all along Australia at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham. "It was unfortunate that the weather came".

But the point gained by default thanks to unrelenting rain now hands coach Ottis Gibson's men a slim chance of reaching the last four, with their final five games against Afghanistan, New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia.

"We are playing fearless cricket, so it doesn't matter who we play (or) when we play them", he said. It is just performance-wise, we haven't put in the performances we need. Their big players are here and they are a match for anyone on their day. "We kind of made some mistakes at key points in the game and it happens in cricket, but you learn from it".
