Legendary West Indian fast bowler Courtney Walsh receives a standing ovation from the crowd and returns the compliment near the end of play in the Federation Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground, 06 January 2001. The West Indies' 38-year-old world record wicket-taker was feted for playing his final Test in Australia. Victory came easy for Australia with a six-wicket victory over the West Indies in the fifth cricket Test to clinch a 5-0 series clean sweep and their 15th consecutive Test win.
