March 25, 2012

Australia beat the West Indies by 30 runs in the final match of their one-day series to draw the best-of-five contest at 2-2.

West Indies, seeking its first series victory over top- ranked Australia since 1995, was dismissed for 251 after the touring team made 281-9 in Gros Islet, St. Lucia. Brett Lee was Australia’s best bowler with figures of 3-42, while Clint McKay, captain Shane Watson and Xavier Doherty each took two wickets.

The Caribbean team, which recovered from 118-7 as captain Darren Sammy top scored with 84, had taken a 2-1 lead into the fifth match after winning the fourth game following a tie in the third encounter.

The teams will play two Twenty20 internationals on March 27 and 30 before a three-match Test series starting April 7 in Barbados.
