West Indies finally recorded a win on their limited-overs tour of Australia at the seventh attempt by beating a virtually second-string home side in the one-off T20 International at the Gabba. Johnson Charles, fresh from his maiden international century in the fifth ODI, laid the platform for their impressive total of 191 for six with a 35-ball 57. Australia's inexperienced middle-order then crumbled when faced with the daunting required run rate and they finished short on 164 for eight.
Seam-bowler Anya Shrubsole was the highest wicket-taker in international cricket last week, taking 12 wickets in three matches, and earns this week's award.
Shrubsole began by taking four for 21 in England's final group game against the West Indies; proceeded to take three for 24 and strike a valiant unbeaten 13 in the defeat to Australia; and concluded by returning career-best figures of five for 17 to help her side thrash South Africa.
Australia have added 23-year-old Queensland batsman Joe Burns to their Twenty20 International squad of their one-off game against world champions the West Indies in Brisbane on Wednesday (13th February).
Burns has been added as cover for Adam Voges, who suffered a hamstring injury after hitting his maiden century during Sunday's fifth and final One-Day International.
There were maiden international centuries from both Adam Voges and Johnson Charles in the fifth and final One-Day International between Australia and the West Indies, but it was Voges who emerged on the winning side as Australia secured the series whitewash.
Kieron Pollard scored an outstanding century - his second against Australia - but even that wasn't enough to prevent Australia sealing a five-wicket victory in the fourth match in Sydney.
Shane Watson was in good form again, scoring a half-century, as Australia moved into a 4-0 series lead with one match to play, further extending their record of not having lost an ODI at home to the West Indies since 1997.
Australia have called up uncapped fast bowlers Nathan Coulter-Nile and Josh Hazlewood as well as batsman Ben Rohrer for their Twenty20 International against the West Indies in Brisbane on 13th February.
Brad Haddin and Clint McKay are also in the squad as David Warner is unavailable through injury and Matthew Wade, Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell and Xavier Doherty are on their way to India to prepare for a four-Test series.
Dale Steyn's superb display of swing bowling in the first innings at the Wanderers is just enough for him to earn this week's award. He would go on to end with career-best match figures of 11 for 60 after taking another five wickets in Pakistanâ€™s second innings to underline just why he is ranked by the ICC as Test cricket's leading bowler.
