Black Cap Boult keen to forget Scotland scare DUNEDIN: Trent Boult denied an unconvincing New Zealand display against minnows Scotland on Tuesday had dented the co-hosts' reputation as genuine World Cup contenders.Man-of-the-match Boult conceded the three-wicket win at Dunedin's University Oval was tighter than expected but said it was still "job done" for the Black Caps."Yeah, it got a little scarier than we wanted, I guess," the New Zealand paceman said after the Black Caps made it two wins from two Pool matches following a 98-run thrashing of Sri Lanka."When I'm rushing around the changing room trying to chuck the pads on it means we might be in a little bit of trouble."But we got there in the end. We got the points and we got the job done, so, yeah, pretty satisfying."New Zealand dominated with the ball after Boult set the tone by taking two wickets in two deliveries but struggled with the bat, losing seven wickets ...

Holding slams 'pathetic' West Indies SYDNEY: West Indies great Michael Holding has slammed the side's four-wicket loss to Ireland in their World Cup opener as a "little bit pathetic". The Caribbean team collapsed to 87 for five in Nelson on Monday before Lendl Simmons (102) and Darren Sammy (89) guided them to a total of 304 for seven.But as far as fast bowling legend Holding and many other observers were concerned that was merely a "par score".Certainly it was one ...
Shaky New Zealand down brave Scotland DUNEDIN: New Zealand limped to a three-wicket win over Scotland on Tuesday, maintaining World Cup momentum only after the minnows gave the co-hosts' much-vaunted batting line-up a bloody nose.New Zealand skittled Scotland out for 142 after putting them into bat, effectively ensuring there would be no repeat of Monday's match when Ireland, another non-Test nation, downed the West Indies.While the Black Caps overhauled their target in 24.5 overs, they could have been in trouble if ...

Ireland soar despite England defections SYDNEY: England captain Eoin Morgan could have been forgiven for thinking about what might have been after his former Ireland team-mates made a fine start to the World Cup as his miserable run of form continued.Morgan was out for a duck -- his fourth in five innings -- as England started their World Cup campaign with a 111-run thrashing by arch-rivals Australia in Melbourne on Saturday.By contrast fellow left-handed batsman Ed Joyce -- who went ...
