Watson century helps Australia to 329-7 in 3rd ODI

Shane Watson marked his comeback from injury with a dashing 122 from 111 balls Wednesday as Australia set the West Indies a target of 330 to win the third limited-overs international and keep the five-match series alive.Watson, returning from a calf muscle injury, shared partnerships of 89 for the first wicket with Aaron Finch (38) and 112 for the second with Phil Hughes (86) before he mis-timed a hook shot off Kemar Roach and was caught on the deep backward square boundary by Keiron Pollard.
The Australian middle order combined to lift the total to 329-7, with George Bailey contributing 44 from 22 balls at Canberra’s Manuka Oval. The Australians easily won the first two matches of the series.
