Seventh one-day international, Grenada:
West Indies (249-1) beat Australia (247-8) by nine wickets
Wavell Hinds lashed his second consecutive match-winning century to help the West Indies defeat Australia for the third straight match.
It was the final match of the series, won 4-3 by Australia after they won the first four encounters.
Hinds' unbeaten 103 off 130 balls outshone Darren Lehmann's fine 107 which had led Australia out of early trouble.
He gained excellent support from fellow left-handers
Chris Gayle (60) and captain Brian Lara (75 not out). The
home team romped to victory with six and a half overs to spare.
Hinds, whose previous innings of 79 and 125 not out
anchored West Indies' earlier victories in the series,
cracked six fours and three sixes.
He was named man of the series.
Fellow Jamaican Gayle, following a career-best 5-46
earlier in the day, added a record 116 for the first wicket
to set the winning foundations.
It was the first century opening stand for the West Indies
against these opponents in 105 one-dayers.
Gayle smashed eight boundaries off 68 balls before he was bowled by a faster ball from Symonds.
But Lara and Hinds simply continued the fluent stroke-play
and sent the capacity crowd of 15,000 into a frenzy.
Lara ended the match in emphatic fashion with three consecutive sixes off Lehmann's left-arm spin.
Earlier, Lehmann's fourth century in his 98th one-dayer rescued Australia from an uncertain start.
The burly South Australian got solid support from Andrew Symonds (48) and left-handed all-rounder Brad Hogg (53).
Lehmann added 102 with Symonds after Australia lost both
openers for 18 and skipper Ricky Ponting was forced to
retire hurt at 23-2.
Ponting was struck painfully on the right hip by Dillon
and only returned for the final ball of the innings with a
Despite the defeat, Australia go home with the trophy
But Lehmann, who scored the first century on this ground
four years ago, rebuilt the visitors' innings.
Symonds gave Lehmann support, but when Gayle claimed him for his first scalp, the innings again stumbled.
Symonds was caught at deep square leg, Michael Clarke (1) was stumped by yards and Ian Harvey (4) run out by captain Brian Lara's direct hit.
At 133-5, Lehmann and Hogg steadied the ship and
also provided the acceleration that realized 84 runs off
the last 10 overs.
Gayle eventually claimed Lehmann to a boundary catch among three wickets toward the end.
The 23-year-old Gayle, in his 75th match, also bowled Hogg
and had Brett Lee (4) caught in the deep.
Hogg hit four fours off 58 balls in his second one-day
