West Indies Defeats Australia to End Six-Year Cricket Drought

March 19 (Bloomberg) -- West Indies beat Australia by five wickets to end a run of 14 matches without a victory against the top-ranked one-day cricket team.

In a match reduced to 40 overs a side because of rain in Kingstown, St. Vincent, the home team reached the adjusted target of 158 with 10 balls remaining as Kieron Pollard top scored with 47. Australia earlier made 154-9.

The victory, West Indies’ first in a one-day match against Australia since Oct. 18, 2006, tied the best-of-five contest at 1-1 after the touring team won the opener by 64 runs.

The third game takes place in Kingstown on March 20 before the series concludes with two matches in St. Lucia.
