That's it from all of us for this Test match. Australia go 1-0 up in the series and West Indies will have to bring out their A-game in the day-night Test in Brisbane to draw level the series.

Keep joining us for more cricketing action all around the globe. For now, this is Akshay Bhide, signing off, on behalf of scorer Bishal Mandal. Until next time, cheers and goodbye.
Pat Cummins (Australia Skipper): "Great Test match and happy that it finished in three days.

It was a wicket that you always feel there was something in it. It was important for the batters to get their eye in and Trav set the platform for us with the bat in hand.

Josh was fantastic. Yesterday as well, he took the game away from them in a single spell and really happy for him."
Kraigg Brathwaite (West Indies Skipper): "I thought our bowlers did very well to bowl out Australia. Our batters didn’t get enough runs while batting.

As a batter, you have to get feel of the Test cricket and playing against the number one team. How to score and how to put away the bad balls. It is important for them to learn.

(On Shamar Joseph's debut) It was great. He is a guy full of energy. He has a bright future ahead of him and he also scored some runs lower down the order which is a good sign."
Travis Head (Player of the Match): "It was challenging at parts. Nice to get some runs under the belt in the summer.

A great week and a great crowd. I'm sure everyone will enjoy this afternoon with sun beating in and nice to contribute."

Josh Hazlewood: "Nice feeling. There was something for the bowlers and I tried to hit the right areas consistently. Nice to get the results.

I feel like I bowled well in the first half of the summer with not much results. But playing with this attack, the pressure is relentless.

(On Shamar Joseph) Amazing debut. Impressive young lad. First ball and that too of Smith. A very good debut.

We thought just as the lead grew, it would be good for Steve to walk out and bat. I feel he gets very nervous in the ten-minute break.

The last time we played a pink ball Test, it was a hard surface and the ball got softer. The new ball plays a huge part in the day-night Test."
6:49 AM IST, 11:49 AM Local Time: That’s it. A complete domination from Australia in the opening game of the two-match Test series as they beat West Indies by 10 wickets. With this, they retain the Frank Worrell Trophy. West Indies were completely outplayed in all facets of the game and will have to get back to drawing board quickly before the next Test begins at The Gabba.

Let’s recap this Test match. West Indies were asked to bat first and their batters faltered on the opening day. Kirk McKenzie, at three, played a well-compiled knock of 50 for them but he lacked support from the other end as they were reduced to 133/9 at one stage. Kemar Roach (17*) along with debutant Shamar Joseph (36) showed some fight and put 55 for the last wicket to help West Indies get to 188 before getting knocked over in 62.1 overs.

The Australian bowlers were brilliant on the opening day of the Test match. Skipper Pat Cummins continued his rich form with the ball in hand and picked up four wickets. Josh Hazlewood was also relentless and grabbed a four-fer to derail the Windies.

In reply, the Australian batters got starts but failed to convert them into big scores. Usman Khawaja fell short of his fifty by five runs. Travis Head walked out to bat at five and changed the whole complexion of the match. He played a magnificent innings at his home ground and brought up his seventh Test ton. His 119 helped his side get a first-innings lead of 95.

Debutant Shamar Joseph was outstanding with the ball for West Indies. He showed great determination and troubled the Australian batters. He picked up a fifer and was well-supported by Kemar Roach and debutant Justin Greaves who chipped in with a couple of scalps each.

Josh Hazlewood’s fiery spell with the new ball resulted in the Windies being reduced to 19/4 in their second innings. McKenzie looked positive for his 26 before falling to Cameron Green. Mitchell Starc removed Joshua Da Silva on 18 early on day three. Alzarri Joseph edged one to the keeper to fall on 16.

Kemar Roach (11*) and Shamar Joseph (15) enjoyed their stay at the crease before the latter was stumped. With this, West Indies got bundled out on 120 and Australia were set a target of 26. Hazlewood was the standout bowler for Australia. He picked up a five-wicket haul in the second innings and finished the match with nine wickets to his name. Starc and Nathan Lyon also chipped in with a couple of scalps.

Steve Smith and Usman Khawaja opened the batting for Australia. Both looked good at the crease. With one required to win, Khawaja was hit on the grille of the helmet by a nasty bouncer from Shamar Joseph. Khawaja walked off retired hurt on nine. Smith and Marnus Labuschagne remained unbeaten on 11 and one respectively to take Australia home with 10 wickets in hand. With this, Australia take an unassailable lead in the series.
6.4 S Joseph to M Labuschagne

6.3 S Joseph to M Labuschagne
0 Over the wicket, length delivery down leg and Labuschagne fails to connect on the flick.

Marnus Labuschagne walks out to bat at number 3.
Khawaja is holding the side of his jaw. The physio is having a look at it. Khawaja is walking off. A sensible decision as no need to take a risk now. They are almost home. Let's hope it isn't serious as he walks off holding the left side of his face.
6.2 S Joseph to U Khawaja
0 Ouchh!!! Nasty stuff from Shamar Joseph and that has hit Khawaja flush on the helmet. Shamar bends his back and bangs it short on the stumps, Khawaja looks to duck under it but gets into a tangle as he takes his eyes off the ball. It hits him on the bottom part of the grille. It also hits him on the jaw and he is looking in pain. The physio walks out to the middle quickly to treat him.
6.1 S Joseph to U Khawaja
0 Round the wicket, back of a length delivery outside off and kicks off the surface, Khawaja looks to defend it off the backfoot but gets beaten on the outside edge.
Australia require just 1 run to win this Test match.
