Dismissed for 70 runs

WACA! WACA! ... IT was a Disaster at the WACA ... A woeful start to the Australian tour by the West Indies.

Dismissed for 70 runs in the 24th over ... And the truth be told that was a recovery as at one stage they were floudering on 19-5 ... Then 28 for 6 ... and then reduced to 39 for 7.

Needless to say ... Australia easily chased getting to 71 for 1 in 9.2 overs to ease to 9 wicket win and take a 1-0 lead in the series. There were 4 ducks in the innings ... Skipper Darren Sammy who surprisingly chose to bat first on the bowler friendly pitch top scored with 16.


Left arm pacer Mitchell Starc was the chief destroyer taking 5-20.


Take a deep breath ... Here are the highlights...
