Bollinger helps Australia crush West Indies

February 09, 2010 22:42 IST


Australia crushed West Indies by eight wickets in the second ODI in Adelaide on Tuesday to take a 2-0 lead in the five game series.

Australian fast bowler Doug Bollinger claimed four wickets to cripple the West Indies.He was deservedly awarded the Man of the Match for his 4 for 28.

Bollinger dismissed Chris Gayle of the first ball of the match. This meant a big blow to the Windies, who failed to recover after the early breakthrough.

West Indies slid as low as 4-16 and was ultimately bowled out for 170, a paltry score which Ricky Ponting's men overhauled the target in the 27th over.
