Windies Win in Perth

PERTH, Australia -- Brian Lara carried on with his new-found form, hitting a scintillating unbeaten 103 to fashion the West Indies' five-wicket win over Pakistan in a World Series limited-overs match Friday.

After Pakistan hit 257-7 in 50 overs the West Indies reached 258 for the loss of only five wickets in only 48.4 overs.

The win at the WACA ground secured West Indies' place in the best-of-three finals, leaving Pakistan and Australia to battle it out for the other place.
