Starc named player of the series

Australia have won the deciding one-day international clash against the West Indies by six wickets to take the series 2-1.

The Aussies, who are priced at 7.00 to win the T20 World Cup later this year, produced a fine bowling effort to set up the win.

West Indies drought continues

The home side had won the toss with captain Kieron Pollard electing to bat first, but the Aussies dismissed them for 152 runs off 45.1 overs.

Australia then made light work of the run chase when reaching the target with 19.3 overs left.

The West Indies last recorded a ODI series win over Australia way back in 1995 and the drought continues.

Carey shines again

Acting captain Alex Carey had nothing but praise for his side as they bounced back from the T20 series loss to dominate in the one-day format.

"The commitment that this group has shown, it’s fantastic to see the result go our way tonight," Carey said.

Carey was also the leading the run-scorer in the series and he was needed to steady the ship on Tuesday as Australia got the run chase off to a shaky start.

The tourists were 2-27 after eight overs after Josh Phillipe and Moses Henriques went early, but Carey stepped in with 35 runs to get them back on track.

Matthew Wade (51 off 52 balls) and Ashton Agar (19 off 33) then took the game away from the West Indies with a fifth-wicket stand of 54.

Meanwhile Aussie quick Mitchell Starc (3-43 off 9.1 overs) finished with 11 wickets at an average of 10.63 and was named player of the series.
