Heading into the fourth day already two wickets down, the West Indies batsman struggled to even put up a fight.

 

Throughout the day’s play, wickets fell at regular intervals.

 

The Australian bowlers shared the wickets around, with each member of the attack showing how dangerous they can be.

 

Mitchell Starc 93/34) was the chief destroyer with three wickets, while Mitchell Johnson (2/23), Josh Hazlewood (2/18), and Nathan Lyon (2/12) each took two scalps.

 

The home side were eventually bowled out for just 114, handing the visitors a 277-run victory.

 

Steve Smith was judged Man of the Match for his scores of 199 and 54, while Josh Hazlewood was rewarded for his great series by being named Man of the Series.
