Michael Clarke's second five-wicket haul in Test cricket has helped Australia to a 75-run victory on the fifth and final day of the third Test at Windsor Park.

Having dismissed West Indies 10,000-run man Shivnarine Chanderpaul in the final over of the fourth day, Australia required five wickets to win the match and seal a series victory.

With a lead of 197, the Australian bowlers went on the attack and took three early wickets.

Australian captain Michael Clarke took the first wicket of the day, Narsingh Deonarine, in the 74th over.

The last specialist batsman at the crease, Deonarine added only two to his overnight total before being caught and bowled by the Australian captain for 13.

Australia's wicketkeeper batsman Matthew Wade was named Man of the Match, and West Indies' Shivnarine Chanderpaul was named Man of the Series.

Australia will now return to Australia for some rest while West Indies move to England for a full tour.
