Australia overcame a spirited challenge from the West Indies to win the 2nd ODI on Sunday. The win by 83 runs meant that the ODI World Champions now have taken an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the series. 

The biggest talking point of the game was the catch taken by Cameron Green to dismiss Roston Chase. At 167/8 it was all but over for the West Indians but there was some hope left as Chase was still batting. 

Sean Abbott saw Roston Chase try to flick the ball off his pads. Cameron Green showed great anticipation as he dove to his left and went low to take a one-handed catch. That ended the game as Australia soon emerged victorious. 

Steve Smith marks a triumphant return to captaincy – 

It was a great return to captaincy for Steve Smith with a young side that included Cameron Green. After being asked to bat first, Australia were struggling at 91/5 at one stage of the game. 

Debutant Jake Fraser McGurk was out for 10, while Josh Inglis fell for 9. Skipper Steve Smith was also out early for five as Cameron Green scored 33. Marnus Labuschagne scored 26 but the West Indian bowlers kept taking wickets at regular intervals. 

Matthew Short and Aaron Hardie played well to score 41 and 26 runs each. The top scorer of the day for the Aussies was local star Sean Abbott. The 31-year-old hit 69 runs from just 63 balls with a four and 4 massive sixes. 

Chasing 259 to win, West Indies were never in the hunt as the Australian bowlers kept them under check. Keacy Carty followed up his half-century from the first game to top score with 40. 

Skipper Shai Hope struggled to score 29 runs off 65 balls while Chase fell for 25. Josh Hazlewood and Sean Abbott picked three wickets each, while Will Sutherland got two. The final game of the series is set to be played in Canberra before the T20I series begins. 

Speaking at the end of the game, Steve Smith said, “It was a challenging start to the game, West Indies bowled really well early on. It was a tricky surface, our middle-order did a terrific job. I thought 250 was around par and we came out and did the job really nicely with the ball.”
