It only took three days for the West Indies to suffer a crushing defeat to Australia, as the visitors won easily by 9 wickets in the first Test at Windsor Park in Dominica. At the start of day 3, the Windies were climbing up from 25/2 in the second innings, and Shane Dowrich and Marlon Samuels tried to steady the ship with a 4th wicket stand of 144; Dowrich made 70 (his first Test half-century) and Samuels made 74 to bring the hosts to 216 all out. Bowling for the Aussies, Mitchell Starc took 4/28 from 18, Mitchell Johnson 2/38 from 15, Josh Hazlewood 2/17 from 16, and Nathan Lyon 2/67 from 24. Australia were faced with the rather small target of 47 for victory, and they sealed the deal when Steve Smith 5 not out hit the game-winning run for a reply of 47/1. Shaun Marsh was unbeaten on 13 and David Warner made 28. Test debutant Adam Voges is the player of the match for his debut century in the first innings. Australia lead the 2-match series 1-0, with the 2nd and final match starting next Thursday at Sabina Park in Jamaica.
