A NOISY, flag and banner-waving crowd of
31,424 saw the West Indies waltz to a six-wicket win over Australia, with 4.5 overs to spare, in a disappointing World Series Cup match at Adelaide Oval.

Australia were always going to lose after they mustered only 165 for seven off their 50 overs.
The West Indies slipped to 89 for four off 30 overs, then were piloted to victory by Clive Lloyd, their captain, and Gus Logie, who shared a fifth-wicket partnership of 80 in 63 minutes. Logie won the player of the match award.

It was the West Indies seventh win from eight matches and they are assured of a place in the finals next month. Australia, who have three wins to their credit, will clinch their place if they beat Pakistan tomorrow.

The last two matches of the 15-match preliminary round will be played in Perth on Saturday and Sunday.

Lloyd sounded an ominous warning for Australia when he said: "We can play much, much better. Our batting and fielding has been patchy."
