West Indies Women 127-8 by 148 runs
Fourth One-Day International, Bowral

Australia Women completed a fourth series clean sweep of their summer, winning the fourth and final One-Day International against the West Indies by 148 runs in Bowral.

Outstanding performances from Ellyse Perry and Meg Lanning were once again the highlights for Australia, who scored 275 for five and then limited their opponents to 127 for eight in reply.

Lanning made 84 and Perry an unbeaten 74 with Lanning passing 1,500 ODI runs during her innings as the pair put on 103 together.

Perry's half-century is her fifth in consecutive matches becoming only the fifth Australian woman to achieve the feat.

Struggling with injuries, the West Indies invited Rachel Martin, captain of the Australian Army Women's team to field for them and had to bat with 10 players.

They fell well short with Hayley Matthews (37) and Britney Cooper (33) top scoring.

Megan Schutt returned career-best figures of four for 18 and Perry took three for 23.
