The West Indies went into day three with plenty of work to do as they were two wickets down and still facing a deficit of over 100 runs.

 

Having lost Darren Bravo for just five early in the day, Shane Dowrich (70) and Marlon Samuels (74) showed some promise with a fourth wicket partnership of 144 runs.

 

But when this was ended by Josh Hazlewood (2/17) it set off yet another collapse as the home side capitulated from 4/181 to all out for 216.

 

World Cup hero Mitchell Starc was the chief destroyer as he finished with excellent figures of 4/28 after cleaning up the tail.

 

This left the Australians with 47 runs needed for victory and a blistering knock of 28 from David Warner sealed victory for the Aussies inside three days.

 

130 not out on debut from Adam Voges saw him awarded man of the match honours.
