Australia beat West Indies by 103 runs in the first game of the Super 8 phase in the World Cup at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua and Barbuda.

Australia posted their innings of 322, with Matthew Hayden starring, scoring the highest total of the Australian batsmen in the World Cup thus far. As the teams went for lunch, the heavens opened and rain prevented any more play.

West Indies' innings therefore was delayed until the following day (28th).


Toss: West Indies won, and elected to field first.
