George Bailey sets up an easy win for Australia

George Bailey ton helps Australia Register 2nd ODI Win

George Bailey made a brilliant century to help the Aussies register their second consecutive victory against the West Indies.

Apart from Keiran powell and Dwayne bravo there was no one else in the West Indies team who was able to get a start.

After the wickets of Bravo and Powell the West Indian team lost too many wickets too quickly just like they did in the first ODI.

The score that George Bailey made was his highest ODI score.

If George Bailey also ended up struggling today the Aussies might have found it hard to make a challenging total.

Australia now lead the 5 Match ODI series 2-0.

What did you think about the innings of George Bailey?

Do you think he will now be able to step into the shoes of Michael Hussey?
