MICHAEL Clarke took five wickets as Australia won the third and final Test against West Indies by 75 runs to take a 2-0 series win.

West Indies fought to the end with captain Darren Sammy, with 61, and last man Shane Shillingford, on 31 not out, hitting their highest Test scores.

After resuming on 173 for five, West Indies were bowled out for 294 just before lunch.

Australia won the first Test in Barbados by three wickets while the second match in Trinidad was a rain-hit draw.

"It's been a long summer, and today tops it off. It has been a lot of hard work, West Indies pushed us hard," said Clarke.
