Watson leads Aussies to victory

First published in International

Former Hampshire batsman Shane Watson hit a century as Australia moved into an unassailable lead in their one-day series against West Indies.

Watson, who opened the batting, finished with 122 before holing out to Kieron Pollard off the bowling of Kemar Roach.

Australia posted a total of 329 from their 50 overs at the Manuka Oval, Canberra, with West Indies only able to reach 290 before being bowled out.

The result means that Australia lead the five-match series 3-0.

Another former Hampshire player, Phil Hughes, scored 86 for the hosts, while overseas signing for 2013 George Bailey added 44.

Ex-Ageas Bowl star and Aussie captain Michael Clarke was out for 15, after being caught and bowled by Pollard.
