Coach Justin Langer praised stand-in one-day international captain Alex Carey after the wicket-keeper led Australia to a 2-1 series victory over the West Indies in the absence of regular skipper Aaron Finch.

Finch injured his knee during preparations for the three-match series and returned to Australia for treatment ahead of the team's six-wicket win over their hosts in the final game in Bridgetown.

Carey oversaw a 133-run win in first game of the series before the Australians slipped to a four-wicket loss in the second game, only to cruise to victory in the decisive third match to clinch the series.

Carey took charge of the team in the absence of a number of big-name players, including David Warner and Steve Smith, and impressed at the crease.

The 29-year old top scored in the first match as he hit 67 runs and chipped in with 35 runs in the series-clinching third clash between the teams.
