Australia wrap up series in Perth


Cricket:Australia triumphed over a never-say-die West Indies inside four overs on the final day to win the third and final Test by 35 runs at the WACA in Perth.

The West Indies came into the final day requiring 51 more runs for the unlikeliest of victories with numbers 10 and 11 at the crease, but were eventually dismissed for 323.

Kemar Roach began the day on 13 and Gavin Tonge 21 as the mid to lower order of the Windies put them in with a slim chance.

Roach and Tonge had not given up and had taken 15 runs off Shane Watson and Doug Bollinger in the first 3.2 overs.

Bollinger and his team-mates then felt it was all over when Roach was given out caught behind by umpire Billy Bowden.

Roach did not think he hit it and went for the referral, but replays were inconclusive and showed no signs of a nick. The decision stood, though, and Australia won a memorable Test match by 35 runs, and the series 2-0.
