NOT­TING­HAM —West In­dies all-rounder Car­los Brath­waite is frus­trat­ed over the “dodgy” um­pir­ing dur­ing his side's 15-run loss to Aus­tralia and is al­so ques­tion­ing why his team does not get as many lbw de­ci­sions as their op­po­nents.

West In­dies over­turned four calls by the two um­pires in Thurs­day’s match at Trent Bridge, in­clud­ing two in three balls against open­er Chris Gayle in the third over of the in­nings by Aussie pac­er Mitchell Starc.
