Gros Islet: Mar 25, 2012


West Indies have a chance to create history of beating Australia in an ODI series for the first time in last 15 years as they are 2-1 ahead in the five-match series.


The Caribbean side will take on the Aussies in the final ODI at Gros Islet on Sunday.


In the fourth ODI, Kieron Pollard smashed a blistering century as West Indies defeated Australia by 42 runs in the fourth one-day international to take a 2-1 lead.


The 24-year-old Pollard hit eight sixes and five fours in his 70-ball 102 as the West Indies made 294 for seven off 50 overs, their highest score at the picturesque Beausejour Stadium. 


In reply, Australia, who were dismissed for 252, never recovered from losing five wickets in making 112 by the 21st over despite skipper Shane Watson (28), Peter Forrest (24), George Bailey (25) and Mike Hussey (26) all getting decent starts.
