Srinagar: In a pure ruthless display Australia chased down target in just 6.5 overs to thrash West Indies by eight wickets in the 3rd ODI in Canberra on Tuesday.

Australia had won the first game in Melbourne by eight wickets and the second in Sydney by 83 runs to clinch the series.

Australia skipper Steve Smith won the toss and invited Windies to bat, they crumbled to 86 all out in the 25th over.

In reply, Australia recorded their shortest successful run chase in the format with 259 balls remaining to cap a stunning capitulation by the Caribbean side.

Opener Fraser-McGurk slammed 41 off 18 balls with five fours and three sixes.

Josh Inglis blasted an unbeaten 35 while Smith was not out six.

Earlier, paceman Xavier Bartlett took 4-21 to go with the 4-17 he bagged on his debut in Melbourne. Fellow fast bowler Lance Morris grabbed 2-13 before leaving the field with a side strain.
