Bailey, Starc power Oz

A maiden one-day century from George Bailey and another inspired bowling performance from pacer Mitchell Starc (5-32) helped Australia beat the West Indies by 54 runs in the second one-day international at the WACA Ground on Sunday.

Set 267 to win after Bailey’s unbeaten 125, the West Indies were cruising at 159 for three, before the return of Starc to the attack turned the match again as the tourists were bowled out 212 in the 39th over.
