The West Indies cricket team toured Australia from November 1979 to January 1980 and played a three-match Test series against the Australia national cricket team. The West Indies won the Test series 2–0. The West Indies were captained by Deryck Murray (first Test) and Clive Lloyd; Australia by Greg Chappell. In addition, the teams played in a triangular Limited Overs International (LOI) tournament with the England national cricket team. The West Indies won this tournament, defeating England in the final.[1]

As part of the settlement between World Series Cricket and the Australian board, this series was hastily arranged along with another involving Australia and England. The two series are seen by many as semi-official only: for example, The Ashes were not at stake.
