Australia beats dogged Windies in final Test by 75 runs to claim Frank Worrell Trophy

Dominica , Sat, 28 Apr 2012 ANI

Dominica (West Indies), Apr 28(ANI): Australia has beaten the West Indies in the final Test match in Dominica by 75 runs to claim the Frank Worrell Trophy 2-0.

Captain Michael Clarke starred with the ball as he snapped five Windies wickets, including the all-important wicket of man-of-the series Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

After resuming on 173 for five on last day, the West Indies were bowled out for 294 just before lunch. Australia had won the first Test in Barbados by three wickets while the second match in Trinidad was a rain-hit draw.

The Windies fought till the end with captain Darren Sammy, 61, and last man Shane Shillingford, 31 not out, hitting their highest Test scores.

Clarke took five wickets in an innings for only the second time in his career, the last being an amazing six for nine in Mumbai in 2004.

"It's been a long summer, and today tops it off. It has been a lot of hard work, West Indies pushed us hard," Sports24 quoted Clarke, as saying.We probably didn't expect the ball to turn as much as it did in Dominica. It has been a great effort from the whole team, I think a lot of credit goes to Matthew Wade, his century here won us the match," he added.

Sammy confessed his team's batting has to improve with a three-Test tour of England looming.For the last year, our batting has been letting us down. But the future looks good for West Indies, we just need to continue what we have been doing," said Sammy. (ANI)
