World Series Cup

AUSTRALIA v WEST INDIES 1979-80

At Sydney, November 27. Australia won by five wickets. A masterly innings by Chappell, after surviving a confident appeal for a catch behind off his first ball, determined the outcome of the first floodlit match under the auspices of the Australian Cricket Board. The batting had been undistinguished until he took control with an elegant display, Hughes providing him with excellent support in a fourth-wicket stand of 92.
