Marlon Samuels produced his best batting effort in One-Day International cricket against Australia to lead the hosts to a four-wicket win in the fifth match of the Tri-Nation series at Warner Park in St Kitts.

Set a challenging target after Usman Khawaja’s 98 and supporting half-centuries from skipper Steve Smith (74) and George Bailey (55) lifted the visitors to 265 for seven batting first, the enigmatic Samuels stroked 92 to ensure that the target was reached with 26 deliveries to spare.

After having a terrible time in Australia last summer, Marlon Samuels was the match-winner for the West Indies here with a composed innings of 92 from 87 balls to steer his side to a comprehensive victory.

Victory pulled the West Indies within a point of leaders Australia in the three-team standings. West Indies next play South Africa on Wednesday at the same venue.

Prior to this West Indies defeated Australia in an ODI was in 2012.
