||A never-say die performance from the Woodworm West Indies captain Darren Sammy who nearly achieved a miracle with a display of pyrotechnics from his cricket bat, but it was not to be as the home team narrowly failed to win the rain-affected fifth and final One-day International Australia on Sunday, sinking to a 30-run defeat.
Sammy struck six fours and six sixes from 50 balls, carrying the host team on his shoulders with a powrful 84 that gave his side unexpected hope. Ultimately though, the consistency shown by Australia with half-centuries for David Warner, Shane Watson and Peter Forrest set an imposing total of 281 for 9, with Brett Lee's bowling wrapping up victory.
Woodworm player Kemar Roach was once again the pick of the Windies bowlers with three wickets for 53, and he was the one man left standing at the death when called upon to bat.
The two sides now contest a pair of Digicel Twenty20 Internationals – the first in two days time at this venue.
