Australia Women 150-6 (Lanning 51) beatWest Indies Women 149-6 by four wicketsThird Twenty20 International, Melbourne
Australia Women were pushed harder than they were in the first two games before claiming a Twenty20 International series win over the West Indies Women with a four-wicket victory in Melbourne.
Meg Lanning led the way with 51 before the home side chased down a target of 150 with one ball to spare.
Stafanie Taylor had earlier blasted 78 in 58 balls as the West Indies posted 149 for six, but it wasn't quite enough.
Her innings included 11 fours and a six and she received support from Shemaine Campbelle (24), Deandra Dottin (19) and Shanel Daley (15).
Rene Farrell and Sarah Coyte took a brace of wickets apiece with Ellyse Perry and Kristen Beams contributing one apiece.
Dottin removed Jess Jonassen early for six before Ellyse Villani (28) and Lanning, whose 51 came from 35 deliveries, put on 38 for the second wicket.
When Villani fell to Shaquana Quintyne, Lanning and Alex Blackwell (19) took the score past 100 only for spinners Quintyne (2-31) and Anisa Mohammed (2-27) to launch a West Indian fightback with the wickets of Blackwell, Jess Cameron (0) and Perry (4).
However, Alyssa Healy hit a quickfire 25 not out in 12 balls and Erin Osborne eight not out in five balls to put the hosts 3-0 up with one game remaining.
