Comical scene at world cup

Australia opened their Women's Cricket World Cup defence in ruthless fashion, cruising to an eight-wicket win over the West Indies at Taunton.

Mooney fell for 70, bowled by Taylor, while Matthews took a stunning catch to dismiss Meg Lanning but Bolton's chanceless innings finished with her third century as Australia eased home.

Hayley Matthews made 46 runs from 63 balls with seven boundaries to her name while Stefanie Taylor contributed 45 runs from 57 balls with the help of a boundary and a six.

The two batters put on 171 runs for the opening wicket in 30.1 overs.

The result would ultimately favour the Southern Stars with Ellyse Perry the pick of Australia's bowlers with figures of 3-37 as the West Indies were rolled for a modest 204 runs.

"We know Australia is a tough opponent, it's not an easy team to beat because it is the defending champion, which says it all.We have to go out there and play our cricket".

Germany's Low pleased after Chile draw: 'We lived up to expectations'
They also kicked each other quite a bit to stifle attacking rhythm - Germany finished the match with 14 fouls, and Chile with 19. Sanchez came close to scoring his second a few minutes later with a low left-foot shot that required a hard save by Ter Stegen.

West Indies fielder Shakera Selman was hit on the head fielding at short leg by Australia's batsman Nicole Bolton.

"It was a pretty damaging partnership, there was a period where it kicked into gear for me - I was mindful of getting the job done but the closer I got to a century the more the nerves kicked in".

Chedean Nation and Deandra Dottin made 39 and 29 runs respectively for West Indies.

And these two high-quality teams know each other well, having also met in the ICC World T20 Final in Kolkata just a year ago with the West Indies coming out on top.

"Generally the scores here in one-day county games have been very good, and the practice wickets today came onto the bat pretty well as well. We didn't bat well, we had a platform but the middle order didn't push on to get us to that total".
