Australia bowled out West Indies for 257 to secure a 17-run victory and a 5-0 whitewash in their one-day international series yesterday thanks to a century from Adam Voges

The tourists had looked on target to chase down a 275-run target at the MCG when Johnson Charles struck his maiden century to match Voges, who scored a magnificent unbeaten 112.

The West Indian opener struck a boundary to bring up his 100 off 120 balls, including eight fours and a six. But he fell next ball, caught by Ben Cutting at square leg.
