WI vs AUS 3rd ODI – Australia Wins Series: Australia have extended their 21-year hold over the West Indies in 50-over cricket thanks to a smothering bowling performance in another low-scoring clash on a turning Kensington Oval pitch.

The visitors recovered from a top-order wobble under lights as Matthew Wade (51 not out off 52 balls) spearheaded a tricky run chase to seal a six-wicket win in their one-day international series decider in Barbados.

The Aussies’ three-pronged spin attack had dominated the Windies in a middle-order collapse of 5-34, with only a brave return to the crease from Evin Lewis (55no off 66) after he had been forced to retire hurt saving the home side from complete capitulation.

It was Australia’s most complete bowling performance of the series, with the return of Ashton Agar (2-31 off 10 overs) from a hamstring injury and Josh Hazlewood (2-18 off eight) after a calf niggle, along with an extended bowling run for off-spinner Ashton Turner (1-23 off eight) all proving decisive in their victory.
