Basseterre, St Kitts:

Australia completed a 169-run victory in the fifth and final One-day International against West Indies on Sunday at Warner Park.

Australia won the series 5-0 to become only the third team to sweep an ODI series in the Caribbean.

Australia won the opening match by 84 runs in St. Vincent, the rain-affected second ODI by 63 runs under the Duckworth-Lewis Method, and the third ODI last Sunday by seven wickets in Grenada, as well as the fourth ODI last Friday by one run at Warner Park.

Previously, South Africa and Pakistan were the two sides that achieved ODI series sweeps in the Caribbean.

They both accomplished the feat three years ago, when the Proteas won all five of their matches in a bilateral series, and the Pakistanis won all three in theirs.
