GEORGETOWN – West Indies were let down by a weak batting effort and crashed to a six-wicket defeat to Australia in their second day/night game of the Tri-Nations Series yesterday.
Sent in at the Guyana National Stadium, the Windies tumbled to 116 all out off 32.3 overs, and the world champions easily chased down the paltry target to achieve victory in the 26th over.
West Indies had recovered from the early loss of Andre Fletcher to reach 50 for one but leg-spinner Adam Zampa (3-16) and off-spinner Nathan Lyon (3-39) ran through the middle and lower order as the last nine wickets perished for 66 runs.
Opener Johnson Charles topscored with 22 and Carlos Brathwaite, batting at No.7 made 21, but they were the only two to pass 20. (CMC)
