Coulter-Nile, who smashed a 60-ball 92, registered the highest score by a No. 8 batsman in World Cup history. He eclipsed Zimbabwe s <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/heath-streak/news/">Heath Streak</a> s unbeaten 72 in World Cup 2003. Coulter-Nile, who smashed eight boundaries and four sixes, also recorded his maiden ODI half-century in his 29<sup>th</sup> ODI. His previous highest was 34 last year. <p></p> <p></p> No. I did not think I would get that much. I remember <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/steven-smith/news/">Steve Smith</a> being on 81 and me not hanging around in a practice game, so I thought I would stick around a little bit, Coulter-Nile, who won the Man of the Match award after Australia pulled off a sensational 15-run win, said at the post-match presentation ceremony. <p></p> <p></p>Coulter-Nile fell three runs short to record the all-time ODI score by a No. 8 batsman achieved by England s <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/chris-woakes/news/">Chris Woakes</a> (95 not out). <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/cricket-world-cup-2019-umpire-chris-gaffaney-fails-to-spot-huge-no-ball-by-mitchell-starc-before-chris-gayles-dismissal-853212">Umpire Chris Gaffaney fails to spot huge no-ball by Mitchell Starc before Chris Gayle s dismissal</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p> Played a pull shot second ball and it went up, luck went my way, couple dropped safely and inside edged a few. That's the way cricket goes, he said. <p></p> <p></p> We back ourselves, we got two world class bowlers and Zamps (Adam Zampa). We back ourselves to defend anything. <p></p> <p></p>Talking about the wicket, he said: I felt it (the surface) quite hard. The wicket was a bit up and down, but I settled in and got used to it. They were on the way before Starcy (<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/mitchell-starc/news/">Mitchell Starc</a>) picked 2-3, good move by <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/adam-zampa/news/">Aaron Finch</a> to bring him on then. He is a fantastic bowler and credit goes to him.
