Saint Lucia: Kieron Pollard has described his match-winning century in St Lucia as "a delight" after West Indies took an unbeatable 2-1 lead over Australia. The visitors can level the series with victory in the fifth match on Sunday but should West Indies take the game it will be their first series win over Australia since 1995, and they would jump ahead of New Zealand into seventh place on the ICC rankings.
West Indies have found themselves in such a good position thanks to Pollard's 102 from 70 balls, a fine innings considering he came in at No. 6, in the 26th over. Pollard made his one-day international debut five years ago but this was just his second ODI century, his first having come against India in Chennai in December 2011.
"Today I told everyone I would look to bat through [to the end of innings] and look to put the team in a winning position," Pollard said. "It didn't happen in the game before when we ended with a tie, but it happened today. We played well and we deserve this victory.
