If they’ve faced a few balls they have a better understanding of the situation. The deeper we take it, we trust our batters to soak up a few balls. They’ve done it in the past,” Carey said.”There are so many options but we trust the batters we have. We had a good shake at it but we were just chasing a few too many runs in the end.”Australia needed 115 runs from the last 10 over and Carey, who came to bat at no. 7, said he still had hopes of chasing the total.”There was a job to do to go at 12 runs an over for the best part of 10 or 15 overs. It was more the state of the game that dictated the way I played. With guys like (Glenn) Maxwell and (Nathan) Coulter-Nile we still back ourselves to go out and do that. We lost a few wickets against a really good attack,” he said.”Bumrah and Kumar are really good finishers and unfortunately we fell short and didn’t have that set batter like India did. Shikhar (Dhawan) played really well and the stats say if you get 120 you will win most games.advertisement”It would have been nice to have one of our players in the top five who had 40 or 50 to go on and make a big score and win the game for us,” said Carey.Also Read | South Africa vs West Indies, World Cup 2019 Match 15: Prediction and Probable Playing 11sAlso Read | South Africa vs West Indies Live Score, ICC World Cup 2019: Cottrell removes AmlaAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
