Windies Bounce Back Against Australia In Grudge Match

Jason Holder and Nicholas Pooran batted brilliantly to give the Windies a spectacular win in the second CG Insurance ODI on Saturday night.

Holder batting on his home ground made 52 with shots all over the ground including a superb pull over square leg for six.

Meanwhile, Pooran showed discipline in a controlled innings which saw him leading the team to victory with 59 not out.

His knock also made him the third-fastest West Indian in history to reach 1,000 runs in ODI cricket in his 27th innings.

The home side made 191-6 off 38 overs to win with 72 balls to spare and level the series 1-1.

Earlier, Australia was up against the wall at 45-6 when left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein bowled a penetrative spell of 10-0-30-3.

He triggered the slide when he had Moises Henriques caught at slip by Jason Holder, then cleaned bowled left-hander Alex Carey and Turner.

The Aussies were eventually bowled out for 189.
