The Australian players pose with the trophy. That's all we have for you. Thanks for joining us and do keep coming back. Until next time, ta ta, cheerio...

Steven Smith is the Man of the Match while Josh Hazlewood is the Man of the Series.

1:24pm Australia retained the Sir Frank Worrell Trophy inside three days at Windsor Park. They have wrapped up the second Test inside four days at Sabina Park to sweep the series 2-0. Clinical!

Ramdin and Permaul offered some semblance of resistance, delaying the inevitable with a 49-run partnership, the highest of the innings. Johnson then came back and had Ramdin nicking it to the cordon, after which Lyon ripped out the tail with two wickets in two balls.

Hazlewood and Starc bowled with great pace and accuracy and were well complemented by Johnson and Lyon. George Binoy's report will give you a better picture. Also watch out for analyses from Dan Brettig.

Murali: "Smith: 253/1. WI: 334/20. Tells a story."

Fletch: "Woke in Sydney at 4am. Worked my way through it thoroughly to the current over and in a couple of balls it was all over. Well done to the Aussies, but a disappointing performance from West Indies. They need to bring back Shiv."

Tapos: "Two pairs in same match, has it happened before?" --- Yep. Well, here is a game where three batsmen made pairs.
