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.
