Ellyse Perry returned figures of three for nine to help set Australia Women on the way to an eight-wicket win over the West Indies Women and a 4-0 Twenty20 International series clean sweep.

Perry's efforts in restricting the West Indians to 107 for seven earned her the player-of-the-match award.

Player of the series Jess Jonassen took two for eight before Australia needed just 15 overs to chase down their target.

Elyse Villani completed a good series by scoring an unbeaten 59 while Jonassen made 31.

Shanel Daley and Hayley Matthews were the wicket-takers for the tourists.

The two sides will now begin a four-match One-Day International series, the first three of which are part of the ICC Women's Championship.

Australia and the West Indies currently sit at the top of the standings with three wins apiece.
