Australia triumph despite Barath ton

Adrian Barath became the youngest West Indian to score a century on debut but his outstanding solo rescue act was wasted as they slumped to an-innings-and-65-run defeat

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

Johnson to Rampaul, OUT

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.

Siddle to Roach, OUT

his brief resistance comes to an end as he tries some sort of pull shot, gets a leading edge and Hussey wanders around and holds the catch in the gully area - as they say, the end is nigh

Siddle returns to try and join the other wicket takers in this innings. I reckpn Hilfenhaus might have a better option given he needs two for five wicket haul
