Charles, Pollard end West Indies' 16-year drought

Three days ago, Johnson Charles scored his first international hundred but couldn't stop an Australian victory. This time, a brisk Charles half-century was enough to set West Indies on the way to their first win over Australia in Australia in any format f

So much for Coulter-Nile's prediction at the halfway mark...

Haddin: "WI showed why they're world champions in this form. Those run-outs changed the game. No exchange (between me and Pollard after my dismissal)."

Pollard is the Man of the Match: "We got a really good score on the board. Hopefully we can improve our 50-over game as well. Took me a couple of games too late to find form. We've got to get the team balance right to win more consistently."

West Indies head back home with something to shout about. It was a tough tour for them. Can't help but state how much they missed Marlon Samuels. Wishing him a speedy recovery from the eye injury.

Victories for both the men and women's West Indies teams today. Twitter will be abuzz surely. Thanks for joining us today. Cheers!

Best to McKay, no run
full toss to end the game, it was quick and towards the pads and McKay made room and failed to connect, eye contact between the batsman and bowler but they shake hands, they're laughing about it now

For some reason Sammy has placed two slips!
