MELBOURNE – West Indies suffered a whitewash at the hands of Australia after losing the final One-Day International (ODI) of their five-match series by 17 runs, despite a maiden century from rookie opener Johnson Charles. Chasing a challenging 275 for victory, the Caribbean side collapsed from 182 for three in the 37th over, to fall for 257 off the penultimate delivery at Melbourne Cricket Ground yesterday. Charles, playing his second match of the series, struck exactly 100 off 121 balls while Kieron Pollard hit 45 and Darren Bravo 33 but the Windies faded, losing their last seven wickets for 75 runs. Once again, the damage was done by the seamers, with left-armer Mitchell Johnson claiming three for 50 and Clint McKay three for 52. (CMC)
