Marnus Labuschagne grabbed a sensational flying catch at backward point to pack in-form West Indies batter Keacy Carty for just 10 in the third ODI of the ongoing series between Australia and West Indies. Labuschagne's fielding effort also handed his teammate Lance Morris his first international wicket before the speedster left the field owing to a left side strain.

Carty's dismissal triggered a colossal batting collapse within the West Indies camp, as they slumped from 38-1 to 86 all out in the space of an hour at Canberra's Manuka Oval.

Stationed at backward point by interim captain Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne snared a stunning catch in the 11th over of the West Indies innings. After Keacy Carty sliced Australian speedster Lance Morris for a backfoot square drive, Labuschagne flew to his right with goalkeeper-like outstretched hands to complete the grab.

Morris earned his maiden international wicket owing to Labuschagne's fielding brilliance, and the fast bowler also cleaned up Teddy Bishop a while later before walking off the field owing to a side strain.

Keacy Carty's dismissal triggered a colossal batting collapse, as West Indies lost their final nine wickets for just 48 additional runs to get folded up for 86.

Young Australian paceman Xavier Bartlett picked up four wickets to bag his second four-fer in two games. Lance Morris also collected his first set of international wickets by dismissing Carty and Teddy Bishop in quick succession. Sean Abbott and leading spinner Adam Zampa accounted for the remaining wickets with timely breakthroughs in the innings.

In response, Australia mowed the 87-run target in just 6.5 overs, with both openers blasting rapid cameos at the top.
