1st Test, Brisbane, Nov 26 - 28 2009, West Indies tour of Australia
(f/o) 228 & 187
Australia won by an innings and 65 runs
Player Of The Match
2/50 & 3/20

There you have it - Australia too strong in all departments. The choice for Man of the Match will be interesting given the efforts today of Adrian Barath, who made 104 in wonderful fashion as a 19 year old on debut. I am sure most at the ground would have no qualms if he received the honour.

A good even effort by the Australians, hopefully for the sake of the series the West Indies can regroup and hit some better form in Adelaide on Friday. Youngster Barath is being interviewed by Ian Healy on TV and is speaking very well for a youngster, no doubt still buzzing after his hundred.

News on the Man of the Match is that Ben Hilfenahus has received the award for his figures of his 2/50 and 3/20 - cheers from Brisbane and join us in Adelaide for the Second Test on Friday from the Adelaide Oval

leg side ball which he glances, Haddin dives and takes a ripper of a catch diving to his left. Haddin has kept well this game and that's it - Australia home and hosed by an innings and 65 runs, leading 1-nil.
