Commentary

Well, that was clinical from Australia, the bowling looked particularly good, especially with the new ball. The absence of the likes of Lee, Bracken and Siddle is hardly being felt, West Indies being rolled over for 143. Kieron Pollard showed us a glimpse of his all-round skills, and West Indies' spinners did a decent job but there was little else to hearten the visitors.

That's it from us at Cricinfo for today, thanks for all the mails, join us again on Tuesday to see how the second ODI in Adelaide turns out.

Hauritz to Rampaul, OUT, Australia go 1-0 up, Rampaul sweeps without too much power behind the shot, the ball loops to Shaun Marsh at deep midwicket, simple catch and West Indies go down by 113 runs, Gayle's 4-1 prediction looks implausible now, Australia picked up their sixth straight ODI win this summer

Harris to Miller, OUT, third for Harris, and another catch for Haddin, no footwork at all from Miller as he wafts at the ball outside off, gets a thin edge which just about carries to Haddin, one more to wrap this one up
