Perth: Feb 3, 2013

A scintillating century from George Bailey helped Australia reach 266 for seven against West Indies in the second ODI at Perth.

Winning the toss and electing to field, the West Indies captain Darren Sammy was rewarded early for his decision as Kemar Roach got rid of opener Usman Khawaja in the fourth over. Khawaja played an uppish flick, only for Kieron Powell to take a wonderful diving catch to send back the youngster to the pavilion.

Next to go was Aaron Finch, courtesy another sharp catch as Darren Bravo plucked one out of thin air at cover position. Phil Hughes was starting to look good but Captain Sammy dismissed him in the 13th over to reduce Australia to 56 for three.

An over later, Dwayne Bravo uprooted Michael Clarke’s middle stump. Australia were further redused to 98 for six in the 24th over.

James Faulkner and George Bailey put on a vital partnership of 100 runs to resurrect Australia’s innings.

Bailey went on to score 125, an innings laced with 10 fours and four sixes.

For West Indies, captain Darren Sammy, who was snapped up by the Hyderabad Sun Risers in the ongoing auctions, was the pick of the bowlers with figures of three for 48.

Bailey and Mitchell Johnson put on a quick-fire stand of 68 runs in 34 balls. Bailey went on to score 25 runs off the final over with one four and three sixes to take Australia to 266 for seven in 50 overs.

Brief Score: Australia 266 for 7 in 50 overs (George Bailey 125*, James Faulkner 39; Darren Sammy 3 for 48) vs West Indies
