The lowest total in ODIs between Australia and West Indies is made by West Indies = 87 allout and it was a very interesting game..
For 3 continues days, Sydney was soaked with rain and none of the captain were ready but umpires Darrell Hair and Steve Randell decided play should go on, after 2 and a quater of an hour's delay, with 30 overs per side. Windies captain won the toss in this 2nd match of 1992 world series and invited home team to bat first on a soggy afternoon. Allrounder Phil Simmons and Curtley Ambrose, coming in first change, took 3 wickets each while Carl Hooper's off spin snatched 2 wickets to reduce Australia to a mediocre 101 for 9 wkts with only Dean Jones (21), Mark Waugh (17) and Greg Mathews (11) reaching double figures except extras which contributed 19.
Chasing 102, Windies found no partnership what so ever against Craig McDermott, Mike Whitney, Paul Reifel and medium pace of Steven Waugh but the man of the match award went to Mark Taylor, for 4 superb slip catches that he took.. it was Mark Taylor's first match as captain of Australia.
91 allout is Australia's smallest total in a one day match against West Indies, which they made at home ground Perth, back on 4 January 1987. Chasing healthy 255 after a majestic 100 from Gordon Greenidge, four pronged pace attack of Joel Garner, Tony Gray, Curtney Walsh and Michael Holding ravaged Aussie batting line up as only Steve Waugh (29) reached double figures except extras = 12.
West Indies won the game by 164 runs, with almost 15 overs left unbowled.
