Australia Defeat West Indies For Test Sweep

Australia demolished West Indies on the fourth day of the second and final Test at Sabina Park today, routing the home side for 114 to win by 277 runs and take the series 2-0.


Off-spinner Nathan Lyon formalised the result with the wickets of Kemar Roach and Jerome Taylor off successive balls early in the afternoon session.

That was after Mitchell Johnson had ended the resistance of Denesh Ramdin, having the West Indies captain caught by his opposite number, Michael Clarke, at slip for a top score of 29.

“We’re really happy to win two Test matches away from home,” said Clarke in reflecting on his side’s performances over the fortnight in the Caribbean and ahead of the Ashes.

“There’s a lot of cricket ahead of us and it was very important to come and achieve what we have.”
