Australia was bundled out for 146 in their second innings when Courtney Walsh did most of the destruction with his 5/39. West Indies requiring 308 for victory were 5/105 at one stage when Brian Lara and Jimmy Adams stuck together for a 6th wicket partnership of 133 runs. Curtly Ambrose joined Brian Lara for a 9th wicket partnership of 54 runs. Walsh then hung around with Lara as West Indies registered one of their finest victory of all time.

Lara, Walsh get Windies home in final wicket thriller
