The 2004–05 edition of the VB Series (so-called because of sponsor Victoria Bitter) was a three-team One Day International men's cricket tournament held in Australia in January and February 2005, between the hosting nation's team, Pakistan and West Indies.[3][4] The teams played each other three times ,[5] with five points awarded for a win and a possible bonus point awarded either to the winners or losers depending on run rate. The top two teams on points went through to the best-of-three finals series. Five of the nine preliminary games were day-night matches, and both finals played were night matches.
