A ruthless batting display from Australia has won them this game with 50 balls to spare. Warner was outstanding, and Watson took the lead after his departure to hasten Australia's victory. West Indies offered some fight in the Tests, but wilted after that to end the tour on a disappointing note. Thanks for tuning in for our coverage right through the summer. We hope you enjoyed it.
