    With two T20 World Cups in the space of 12 months and the next World Test Championship cycle about to get underway, it's understandable that the 2023 50-over World Cup may not be front of mind for cricket fans right now.

    But while it may have gone under the radar, Australia's one-day World Cup campaign is already underway and will continue against West Indies this week.

    With the official launch last year of the first-ever ODI Super League, all One-Day Internationals finally have what they have lacked for almost five decades – context.

    The Super League will see the top 13 teams in the world play eight three-game bilateral series each over the course of three years, with the top seven teams plus hosts India to earn automatic qualification for the World Cup.

    It means the bottom five teams, which will include some major Test-playing nations, will be forced into a secondary qualifier tournament in 2023 in order to guarantee their spot at the game's showpiece event.

    And depending on the outcome of that qualifier tournament, it could also see one of those nations relegated into the second tier of one-day cricket and dropped completely from the next cycle of the Super League.

    It all means the days of 'meaningless' ODIs are over.

    With 10 Super League points on the line in every contest, including Australia's three ODIs against the Windies in Barbados this week, every single result matters, and could be the difference between qualifying for the World Cup and not.

    A little less than 12 months into the Super League, it's difficult to get a grasp on who's in danger of missing automatic qualification due to the uneven schedule, which has been thrown into chaos by the pandemic.

    Fourteen series have already been postponed, creating an unbalanced points table where England have played 15 times while New Zealand, Afghanistan and the Netherlands have played just three games each.

    But already, some trends have emerged that should have some proud Test-playing nations worried about their hopes of qualifying automatically for the World Cup.

    Top of that list is Sri Lanka, who are currently ahead of only Zimbabwe on the Super League table with just one win from 10 matches, their latest defeat a seven-wicket thrashing at the hands of a second-string Indian side on Sunday.

    Home series against Zimbabwe and Afghanistan to come loom as their best chance to make up ground, while they're also scheduled to host South Africa, and face New Zealand away before the Super League cycle is over.

    South Africa have also made a slow start, including their shock loss to 12th-ranked Ireland last week. That defeat and the washed-out series opener meant they picked up just 15 of a possible 30 points from their series against the Irish.

    Australia beat England 2-1 and India by the same scoreline last year, meaning they will take a 4-2 record into their three-game series against the Windies (3-3) in Barbados this week.

    A 3-0 sweep could see either team surge up the ladder and while a series loss by the same scoreline won't be a fatal blow to their World Cup hopes, it would increase the pressure on their remaining matches.

    Australia still have home series against New Zealand (to be played this summer), South Africa (scheduled to be played in 2022) and Zimbabwe (which was postponed last winter) to come as well as away campaigns against Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    The great unknown with the Super League, and what could prove to be the deciding factor, is the fate of the 14 postponed series.

    With the schedule already cramped as it is, it's unclear if all teams will be able to reschedule these games.

    When it became apparent that several postponed series in the recent World Test Championship would not be played in time, the points system was switched to factor in the percentage of points earned, indicating a similar system could be introduced if Super League matches are not able to be played.

    Depending on how Australia fare in their upcoming campaigns, it could mean rescheduling their home series against Zimbabwe will take on added importance in the coming months.

    And it means the three matches this week between Australia and the Windies, who have played 140 times in ODI cricket, are more than important than most of those that have come before them.

    Alex Carey named Australian captain for opening CG Insurance ODI match against the West Indies

    Alex Carey will captain Australia in tomorrow night’s CG Insurance One-Day International against the West Indies at Kensington Oval in Barbados.

    Aaron Finch has been ruled out with a knee injury sustained while batting in the fifth T20 International in St Lucia last Friday. His fitness for the one-day international series will be assessed on a day to day basis.

    Carey and Pat Cummins were joint vice-captains of the white ball sides for three years until the fast bowler assumed the role as a standalone last August. With Cummins not on this tour Carey was to be vice-captain of the one-day squad after Matthew Wade assumed the role in the T20 Series.

    The wicket-keeper will be available for the captain’s press conference this morning at 7.30am AEST/5.30pm AST (-1): Alex Carey

    Carey said: “I am deeply honoured to be able to lead the team while Aaron recovers. To captain Australia is one of the greatest privileges in sport and an honour I am extremely thankful to receive.

    “Finchy is our captain and we will welcome him back with open arms when he is fully fit, so for now I hope I can fill the role to his extremely high standards.

    “To lead this group against the West Indies in the West Indies is a great challenge and one I very much look forward to for as long as I have the opportunity.”

    Head Coach Justin Langer said: “For a long period of time Alex has shown an extremely high level of professionalism and discipline as a fantastic leader within this group,” Langer said.

    “The injury to Finchy gives Alex the opportunity of his first experience as captain. I have no doubt he will do a fantastic job with the support of the other senior players.”

    Carey has captained the Adelaide Strikers, the South Australian Redbacks and Australia A in the past. Australia will name Carey’s vice-captain and its final team at the coin toss.

    BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – Cricket West Indies (CWI) Selection Panel today announced a change to the squad for the CG Insurance One-Day International Series against Australia.

    Leg-spinner Hayden Walsh Jr replaced allrounder Roston Chase, who has not recovered in time from the left thigh injury picked up in the Betway Test Series against South Africa Test and will therefore not be available to participate in the series.

    Walsh was named the CG Insurance Player-of-the-Series in the recent CG Insurance Twenty20 Series which West Indies won 4-1. He took 12 wickets at average of 11.66 and economy rate of 7.00 per over.

    The CG Insurance ODI Series will be played at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Tuesday, July 20, Thursday, July 22 and Saturday, July 24. All three matches are scheduled as day/night encounters – first ball is 2:30pm (1:30pm Jamaica Time). There is great anticipation as this is Australia’s first tour of the West Indies since the tri-nation series back in 2016.

    The series forms part of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) ODI Super League where both teams are aiming to win points to secure automatic qualification for the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup in India.

    Due to COVID-19 protocols the matches will be played behind closed doors.

    Sizzing Starc blows West Indies away

    Australia has started their ODI campaign against West Indies with a bang, beating the hosts by 133 runs via the DLS method.

    With Alex Carey captaining the side for the first time and three players on debut, Australia batted with resolve before turning it on with the ball.

    The victory was essentially sealed inside the first eight overs of West Indies’ attempted chase of a revised target of 257 to win from 49 overs.

    Mitchell Starc (5/48) and Josh Hazlewood (3/11) each picked up three wickets in their first four overs to leave the hosts on the ropes at 27/6.

    Starc tasted success with the first ball of the innings when he removed Evin Lewis caught and bowled for a golden duck. He struck again in his next over, bowling Jason Mohammed (2) with a trademark yorker and made it three in as many overs when he trapped Nicholas Pooran in front for a duck.

    Not to be left behind, Hazlewood got in on the act in his second over, taking a simple catch off his own bowling to dismiss Shimron Hetmyer (11). The seamer struck again in each of his next two overs, having Darren Bravo (2) caught at cover and Jason Holder (0) on the ropes as he finished his first spell with figures of 3/11 from six overs.

    A 68-run stand between Kieron Pollard and Alzarri Joseph (17) rebuilt the innings but hopes of a miracle victory always looked slim.

    Mitchell Marsh (1/7) brought the fighting partnership to an end in the 19th over when he bowled Joseph.

    Starc’s return in the 23rd over ended whatever hopes West Indies had of a comeback, with the quick having Pollard caught in the slips for 56 before wrapping up the eighth five-wicket haul of his ODI career by blowing Akeal Hosein’s front pad away for a duck.

    Adam Zampa (1/39) brought the match to a close with the dismissal of Hayden Walsh Jr (20) in the 27th over.

    Earlier, Australia were held to 252/9 from their 49-overs in a rain-affected innings, with a 104-run stand between Carey (67) and Ashton Turner (49) providing the backbone of the innings.

    Josh Philippe, making his debut alongside Ben McDermott (28) and Wes Agar, was the first man out for Australia, bowled for 39 as Hosein (2/50) ended a 51-run first-wicket combination.

    Wickets at regular intervals from there saw the Australians reduced to 114/4 in the 26th over when Turner joined Carey in the middle.

    Captaining the country for the first time, Carey rebuilt Australia’s innings with Turner, bringing up his half-century in 72 balls, accelerating as his score grew.

    Having taken 72 balls to raise the fifty-run partnership, Carey and Turner only took another 35 deliveries to bring up their hundred-run stand.

    Just as the duo looked set to launch, Walsh Jr worked his magic. A late addition to the ODI squad, Walsh Jr finished with figures of 5/39, taking the first of those wickets in the 45th over.


    The leggie bowled Carey to open his account and four balls later drew a top edge from Turner that landed in the hands of deep square leg.

    He collected another two wickets in his next over, accounting for Starc (8) and Matthew Wade (3) before wrapping up a maiden ODI five-for by dismissing Agar (9) in the final over.

    The spinner went on to score 20 with the bat and the hosts will be hoping for another stellar performance from him when they take on Australia in the second ODI on Thursday.

    Tuesday’s victory lifts Australia to third on the Cricket World Cup Super League Standings with 50 points, one more than India.

    Kieron Pollard was left disappointed after a disastrous performance by the batting unit left his side enduring a heavy loss in the series opener in Barbados. He will expect a much more competitive performance from his batsmen who won't have much time to ponder upon their mistakes, due to a quick turnaround between the two matches. A victory will also be important for the Windies as they aim to climb up the CWCSL table.

    Stand-in skipper Alex Carey on the other hand, had a dream start to his life captaining the Australian side. Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood were back to their devastating best with the ball. He will also be satisfied with his own performance with the bat and also the impact made by newcomers Wes Agar and Josh Philippe. Another win will also help the visitors strengthen their spot in the top 3 of the CWCSL standings.

    Remember the last time

    In the series opener, vital contributions from stand-in captain Alex Carey (67) and debutant Wes Agar (49) allowed the visitors to post a competitive score of 252 on the board in 49 overs.

    Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood then completely blew the West Indian batting line-up away, picking up a combined 8 wickets to bowl out hosts for 123 in only 26.3 overs to go 1-0 up in the series.

    What they said

    Kieron Pollard (West Indies captain): "I think we did pretty well with the ball. Par score here is 260-270 and being able to restrict them to 250 was a fantastic effort. My biggest thing is I want the guys to fight. It's a matter of continuing to work hard, understanding my game, understanding my strengths. Just a matter of trying to enjoy it."

    Alex Carey (Australia stand-in captain): "For us to adapt and put on the score on the board which we thought was competitive, and then the way the powerplay went for us was fantastic. Ashton played a crucial role. Probably haven't seen a powerplay like that before. When they get it right we know how damaging they are."

    Presumably, Cricket West Indies only received validation of the positive test at the last minute. However, I feel that the toss should have been delayed till they waited for the result.

    The Australian media is reporting that the infected person isn't Australian.

    Worst case now is that there are multiple cases within the West Indies team, which potentially leads to the cancellation of the first few T20 matches against Pakistan as they can't fly in replacements at short notice into Barbados due to quarantine regulations.

    The second ODI between Australia and the West Indies was suspended at the last minute on Friday morning due to a positive COVID-19 case.

    News of a positive test came just minutes away from the first ball after the toss was completed and teams were named.

    A Cricket West Indies statement says the positive case belongs to a non-playing member of the West Indies team.

    All players and staff in the tour’s bio-bubble will now be tested again and go into isolation.

    A decision on whether the ODI tour can go ahead will be made after the test results are in.


    Riley Meredith had been named to make his ODI debut, while Alex Carey won the toss and elected to bat first.

    News of an “operational issue” then delayed the start of the match at 4.30am (AEST), before the positive test was revealed shortly after.

    The case puts the remainder of Australia’s tour in serious doubt with the third ODI scheduled to take place on Sunday (4.30am).

    It could have a considerable knock-on effect with the West Indies booked in to play Pakistan in another T20 series from Wednesday.

    Australia, meanwhile, on Thursday confirmed its T20 tour of Bangladesh, with the first of five matches starting on August 3.

    It’s unclear if Friday’s news will have complications for Australia’s plans to travel next week.

    This is the first time Australia has been involved in a travel bubble that’s been breached during the pandemic following succesful tours of England and New Zealand.

    BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- The second CG Insurance ODI between West Indies and Australia has been postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test result from a non-playing member of the West Indies staff. This decision was taken after the toss at Kensington Oval once the result was known.

    The established COVID-19 protocols stipulate that all members of both teams and match officials will return immediately to the team hotel and will be re-tested later today. They will remain in isolation in their hotel rooms until their PCR-Test results are returned.

    A decision on when the match will be replayed will be made at a later date once all the test results are confirmed.

    BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – Cricket West Indies (CWI) is pleased to announce that all 152 persons tested for COVID-19 on Thursday evening returned negative results, following the suspension of Thursday’s second CG Insurance One-Day International (ODI) before a ball was bowled at Kensington Oval, Barbados.

    All members of the West Indies and Australia teams and coaching staff, as well as match officials, event staff and TV production crew were tested back at the hotel with everyone being in room isolation since.

    Following confirmation from the Ministry of Health officials in Barbados that all the results are negative, CWI will now hold meetings with Cricket Australia (CA), the Barbados Cricket Association, and Government of Barbados officials to agree when the resumption of the CG Insurance ODI Series at Kensington Oval can begin.

    On Thursday, the second CG Insurance ODI between West Indies and Australia was suspended after the toss due to a positive COVID-19 test result from a non-playing member of the West Indies squad following discussions between the local health officials and the CWI and CA Medical Teams before the start of play.

    CWI has been working closely with Local Ministries of Health to operate strict bio-secure bubbles successfully during the past year, and will continue to prioritize the health, safety and wellbeing for all concerned.

    No, non-playing never means anyone who can play, so support staff.

    BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – Following meetings between Cricket West Indies (CWI) and Cricket Australia (CA) on Friday evening, after earlier discussions with the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) and the Government of Barbados medical officials, CWI is pleased to announce that the CG Insurance One-Day International (ODI) Series will resume on Saturday and conclude on Monday. The second ODI was suspended on Thursday and will now continue at 2:30pm (local time) on Saturday, with Australia having won the toss and elected to bat at Kensington Oval.

    Ricky Skerritt, CWI President confirmed: “We are happy to be able to announce the restart of the CG Insurance ODI series at Kensington Oval tomorrow. We want to thank our counterparts at CA for their co-operation in this matter as we look to get the games going again. Special thanks to our CEO Johnny Grave, Chairman of Cricket Australia, Earl Eddings, his CEO Nick Hockley along with our respective medical and operations teams. I appreciate the crucial role of the BCA and the Government of Barbados for working closely with CWI to ensure everything is in place for resuming the series. It has been a challenging two days and we have worked very swiftly and safely, following all the established medical protocols, to make sure that all necessary precautions are in place to ensure that we can go-ahead to resume play safely, tomorrow. We will continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly.”

    On Thursday, the second CG Insurance ODI between West Indies and Australia was suspended after the toss, due to a positive COVID-19 test result from a non-playing member of the West Indies squad and discussions between local health officials and the CWI and CA Medical Teams before the start of play.

    All members of the West Indies and Australia teams and coaching staff, as well as match officials, event staff and TV production crew were immediately tested for COVID-19 back at the hotel with everyone isolated in their rooms until all 152 persons returned negative results. The CG Insurance ODI Series forms part of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) ODI Super League where both teams are aiming to win points towards securing automatic qualification for the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup in India.

    Following the CG Insurance ODI Series, West Indies are scheduled to face Pakistan in five (5) T20 Internationals and two (2) Test Matches. CWI will meet with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in the coming days to discuss any necessary changes to the match schedule.

    CWI has been working closely with Local Ministries of Health to operate strict bio-secure bubbles successfully during the past year, and will continue to prioritize the health, safety and wellbeing for all concerned.

    The ICC Cricket World Cup Super League series between West Indies and Australia is set to resume after backing from both national boards and Barbados government medical officials.

    After the postponement of the series' second match, the teams will face off on Saturday and Monday, with 20 points going towards automatic World Cup qualification.

    The second match was suspended after Alex Carey won the toss and elected to bat on Thursday. A non-playing member of the West Indies contingent returned a positive test in the lead-up to play, forcing medical officials from both sides to intervene. Since the postponement, the 152-person group of players, coaching staff, officials and television crew have all returned negative test results, enabling the series to continue largely unaffected.

    Ricky Skerritt, President of Cricket West Indies, praised the work and cooperation between both team's boards and health teams.

    "I appreciate the crucial role of the BCA and the Government of Barbados for working closely with Cricket West Indies to ensure everything is in place for resuming the series," Skerritt said.

    "It has been a challenging two days and we have worked very swiftly and safely, following all the established medical protocols, to make sure that all necessary precautions are in place to ensure that we can go-ahead to resume play safely, tomorrow.

    "We will continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly.

    "We want to thank our counterparts at CA for their co-operation in this matter as we look to get the games going again. Special thanks to our CEO Johnny Grave, Chairman of Cricket Australia, Earl Eddings, his CEO Nick Hockley along with our respective medical and operations teams."

    Australia made a fine start to the series, winning by 133 runs (DLS), as Mitchell Starc tore through the hosts' batting order with figures of 5/48. The result moved Australia up to third on the Super League standings, while the West Indies sit ninth, currently outside the automatic qualification spots.

    After the three-match series, the West Indies will stay in Barbados for five T20Is against Pakistan.

    This chase will be a major litmus test of Shai Hope's batting ability.

    He is seen by many as a future batting star. Time for him to do justice to that superlative ODI batting average of his. So far he has done pretty well.

    West Indies recovered from another new ball assault from Australia’s attack to take out the second ODI and draw level in the series.

    A match that concluded two days after it was initially scheduled to begin proved aptly unpredictable, with Australia’s top score coming from their No.10.

    Chasing 188 to win, West Indies were teetering at 72/5 at one stage before a 93-run stand between Nicholas Pooran (59*) and Jason Holder (52) turned the tide of the match to set up a four-wicket win.

    The victory lifts West Indies to sixth on the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League standings with 40 points.

    Both Pooran and Holder notched half-centuries to help West Indies tie the series 1-1 with a match to go.

    The Australians were left to rue a dropped catch from Moises Henriques in the 27th over when West Indies still required more than 60 runs to win and another by Matthew Wade when they still needed 17.

    Pooran was the man to enjoy both lucky breaks, first driving Adam Zampa (2/43) straight to Henriques on 26, with the usually excellent fielder spilling the simple catch. His second life came on 49 as he edged Ashton Turner (1/37) to slip where Wade could not hold on.

    In his next over after the Pooran reprieve, Zampa thought he had trapped Holder in front for 43, only for the dismissal to be overturned on review as replays confirmed a thick inside edge.

    The all-rounder’s innings finally came to an end on 52 when he was struck in front of the stumps by Mitchell Starc in the 35th over with West Indies needing 23 runs to win. Removing Pooran would have opened the door for Australia but the wicketkeeper-batter managed to see the hosts home from there.

    Pooran and Holder came together in the 15th over following an electric start from the Aussie attack. In the first over of the chase, Starc (3/26) had Evin Lewis adjudged lbw only for the decision to be overturned on review. He did not have to wait much longer to get his man however, removing him lbw for one before bowling Darren Bravo for a golden duck with his next legal delivery.

    Zampa opened his account in the ninth over, dismissing Jason Mohammed (11) with a googly before Turner took a wicket with just his second delivery in ODI cricket, bowling the well-set Shai Hope in the 14th for 38.

    Zampa struck again in the 15th over, bowling Kieron Pollard (2) with a brilliant wrong'un and at that stage it was advantage Australia. Slowly but surely Pooran and Holder turned the tide of the match from there.

    Two full days after electing to bat, Australia’s innings got off to an unideal start when Ben McDermott edged behind to fall for a duck to Sheldon Cottrell (2/29) in the opening over.

    It was a sign of things to come with the Australians losing their first six wickets inside 13 overs. The situation rapidly deteriorated for the tourists from the seventh over onwards after Josh Philippe (16) was caught hooking off the bowling of Alzarri Joesph (3/39).

    Just three deliveries after the opener’s dismissal, Mitchell Marsh (8) nicked off to Holder (1/41), drawn in by a ball on a fourth-stump line. Across two overs, Akeal Hosein (3/30) then tore through Australia’s middle-order, bowling captain Alex Carey (10) through the gate in the 11th before dismissing Henriques (4) and Ashton Turner (1) in the 13th.

    Australia were in dire straits at 45/6 at that stage and looked in danger of being bowled out for less than a 100 only to be rescued by a 51-run stand between Wade and Starc.

    Starc, known more for his power than his patience with the bat, showed plenty of resolve as he dug in for 19 runs off 43 balls before being trapped in front by Hayden Walsh Jr (1/32) with the score 96/7.

    When Wade’s fighting knock was ended by Joseph on 36, a swift end to the Australian innings looked likely. Instead, Zampa (36) and Wes Agar (41) dug in to add 59 runs for the ninth wicket.

    Zampa played the foil of the innings, making a career-best 36 off 62, while Agar freed his arms in a 36-ball 41 that featured two sixes and three fours. Agar’s effort was the second-highest by an Australian ODI batter at No.10, just behind Jason Gillespie’s 44 against the same opponents in 2005.

    The stand was brought to an end in the 47th over when a Cottrell yorker made a mess of Zampa’s stumps, and the innings concluded at 187 all out on the very next ball as Joseph removed Agar.

    The duo did enough to make a game of it but ultimately the top-order collapse proved too big a hurdle to overcome.

    The two teams next meet in the series decider on Monday.

    Australian captain Aaron Finch ruled out of the remainder of the Qantas Tour of the West Indies and Bangladesh

    Australian captain Aaron Finch has been ruled out of the remainder of the Qantas Tour of the West Indies and Bangladesh due to a knee injury.

    Finch will return to Australia from the West Indies to complete 14 days quarantine and is then likely to undergo surgery.

    Selectors and the Cricket Australia medical team are optimistic Finch will recover in time for the ICC T20 World Cup in the UAE and Oman, which commences in mid-October.

    “I’m extremely disappointed to be heading home,” Finch said. “This was considered the best course of action rather than travelling to Bangladesh, not being able to play and losing that recovery time. I will have the surgery if required and start the recovery process ahead of the World Cup.”

    Finch suffered the injury during practice leading into the T20 Series against the West Indies in St Lucia, which he further aggravated in the final game of that Series.

    Alex Carey will continue to captain Australia for the final CG Insurance match in Barbados. Selectors will decide on a T20 captain ahead of the five-game Series against Bangladesh in Dhaka. Matthew Wade was vice-captain in the West Indies' T20 matches.

    With the series tied at 1-1, it all boils down to the deciding contest at the Kensington Oval in Barbados as West Indies and Australia vie for crucial ICC CWCSL points.

    Overview

    West Indies vs Australia, third ODI
    Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados
    July 26, 02:30 local

    After a roller-coaster ride with delays, and momentum swinging one way and then the other, Australia's tour of West Indies finally comes to a conclusion. The hosts fought back brilliantly in Barbados to take the series to a decider. Kieron Pollard will be hoping for one last push from his men as they build up to their next assignment against Pakistan.

    For Alex Carey, taking charge in the absence of regular skipper Aaron Finch, the up-and-down form of his batters will be a major concern. The Australian bowlers, especially Mitchell Starc, have been brilliant in the series with their attacking mindset. But a young batting unit will have to up their game if they plan to walk away from the Caribbean with a series victory under their belts.

    Remember the last time

    Chasing 188 to win to stay alive in the series, the hosts found themselves in a tricky situation at 72/5 in the second ODI. But a 93-run stand between Nicholas Pooran (59*) and Jason Holder (52) turned out to be the difference in a low-scoring affair, as the Windies roared back with a four-wicket win to level the scoreline 1-1.


    What they said

    Kieron Pollard (West Indies captain): "When you start a cricket match you want to win. We have some work to do. I don't think we put out foot on the accelerator. Our batters didn't make it easy for us as well. Looks like we don't like to do things the easy way. The spinners were brilliant. The bowlers were brilliant. 180-190 was disappointing and that is how I would like to sum it up."

    Alex Carey (Australia stand-in captain): "It was an interesting game in the end. It doesn't help when you are five for not a lot. Wade and the bowlers brought us back into the game. We created opportunities in the end, but we were at least 30 runs short. Spin is a threat on these wickets. With the new ball, it might spin and bounce a little bit more. A great effort to get to 190. Our bowlers did a fantastic job."

    West Indies should be favourites to win the series given that Australia are now forced to select a third or fourth choice XI.

    Australia dominate third ODI to claim 2-1 series win

    An unbeaten half-century from Matthew Wade steered the tourists to an emphatic six-wicket triumph over West Indies in Bridgetown.

    Four commendable contributions with the bat helped Australia chase down a target of 153 to win with ease.

    After losing Moises Henriques (1) and Josh Philippe (10) cheaply, Alex Carey took matters into his own hands and produced a fine captain's knock of 35 runs from 50 balls.

    Carey combined well with Mitchell Marsh, who smashed 29 off 21 including three sixes, to put Australia well on track for victory.

    West Indies had a sniff when Marsh was caught off a Sheldon Cottrell (1/34) bouncer in the 14th over, but the breakthrough did little to stop the visitors in their tracks.

    Matthew Wade came in at No.5 and immediately went to work, slashing Cottrell for four off his second ball.

    Hayden Walsh Jr (1/41) trapped Carey lbw at the start of the 21st over but that would be Australia's last wicket loss for the match.

    Ashton Agar was the man to accompany Wade at the end of Australia's successful chase, hitting a welcome 19* off 33, including three boundaries.

    Earlier on, West Indies won the toss and elected to bat first at Kensington Oval, recording a sub par total of 152.

    The hosts got off to a steady start until Evin Lewis retired on 5* under concussion protocols after top-edging the ball into his helmet.

    Lewis would return later in the innings to fabricate a well-deserved half-century, the 10th of his ODI career.

    Australia took wickets at regular intervals with all five bowlers chipping in. Mitchell Starc cashed in again taking a game-high three wickets for 43 runs off 9.1 overs.

    Josh Hazlewood (2/18), Ashton Agar (2/31), and Adam Zampa (2/29) were also impressive, bagging two wickets each.

    After complimenting his tidy bowling figures, Agar was awarded Player of the Match with an important 19* from 33 balls with the bat.

    Starc was named Player of the Series courtesy of his 11 wickets across the three-match affair with an average of 10.63.

    The 2-1 series win for Australia sees them consolidate third spot on the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League with 60 points. The West Indies remain sixth with 40 points.
