Australia Women completed a 3-0 whitewash in the ODI series against West Indies Women with a comfortable 8-wicket win in the last ODI. Some tight bowling upfront restricted the hosts to 104/6 by 36th over. Chinelle Henry’s 39 and Sheneta Grimmond’s 24-ball 34 pushed the West Indies total to 180 with Megan Schutt finishing the innings with a hat-trick.

Alyssa Healy struck 11 fours and a six on her way to a 32-ball 61 as the opening stand valued 71 in only 7.5 overs. Rachael Haynes (19) continued her poor string of scores in the series but the target was too less to put pressure on the visitors. Meg Lanning (58*) and Ellyse Perry (33*) took the team over the line in only 31.1 overs as the duo shared an unbeaten 85-run stand for the 3rd wicket.
