Watson: 'Really nice to go out there and bat in the middle. I was looking forward to it for the last 4 weeks. It was a really nice wicket out there to get back to form. It was one of those days when you feel good about batting. It was a great wicket to bat on. I spent quality time with my wife in the 4 weeks but I was always looking forward to coming back and playing cricket.'
Shane Watson is the Man of the Match
Australia take the series 3-0. Two more matches to go, so they can aim for a whitewash. 330 was a huge target but West Indies were in the game for a large part of the chase. The Bravos put on a century stand and set up a very good platform but the big hitters couldn't do much. Gayle failed, Pollard was run out, and that left a bit too much for the likes of Russell and Sammy. For Australia, it was Faulkner who was the pick of the bowlers. His double strike in the 38th over took the life out of the West Indies chase.
