Despite some brief resistance from the West Indies, Australia look set to wrap up the series with a win in the second Test.
Heading into the third day eight wickets down, the West Indies managed to scrape past the required target to avoid the follow on after a 77-run partnership between Jason Holder (82) and Kemar Roach (7).
The home side were eventually bowled out for 220, giving Australia a 179-run first innings lead.
Josh Hazlewood was the star with the ball once again for Australia as the big quick finished with figures of 5/38.
With the momentum well and truly in their favour, the Aussie openers went out with intent to score runs at a fast pace.
This suited David Warner (62) and Shaun Marsh (69) perfectly as the piled on quick fire 117-run opening partnership.
By the time the visitors reached 2/212, Michael Clarke made the decision to declare, setting the West Indies a total of 392 to win.
With just a few perilous overs to survive before stumps, the Windies openers went out, but they were soon sent back to the pavilion thanks to Mitchell Starc (2/1) who claimed two late wickets to leave the home side struggling at 2/16 at stumps on day three.
