Winning the toss and batting first, Australia reached a surprising 270 for nine off their 50 overs, thanks to a Matthew Wade half-century which led a late-innings charge.

In contrast, West Indies were bowled out for 212 with Player-of-the-Series Josh Hazelwood taking five for 50.

South Africa also took part in the series but were eliminated by West Indies. (BN)
