10th Over
That wraps up a short and sweet day of ODI cricket, these two teams meet again on Sunday in Game 2 of the Commonwealth Bank Series, can the West Indies bounce back after today's embarrassment? Join us then to find out. Cheers.
Mitchell Starc gets the Man of the Match award for his outstanding figures of 5/20, he set the tone for the day by ripping through the West Indies top order in an excellent spell of swing bowling.
Nothing much to say except what a dominant performance by the Australian pace attack, they completely destroyed the West Indies batting line up today. The batting was poor to be honest, and the bowlers and fielders capitalised taking all their chances.
