Australia has completed a dominant First Test win over the West Indies at Windsor Park.

The hosts resumed at 2-25 in the first session, 145 runs behind Australia.

Darren Bravo fell soon after the resumption of play for just 5, courtesy of a stunning catch front Dave Warner at mid-off. Bravo threw his bat at a wide delivery from Josh Hazlewood, before Warner threw himself to his right and plucked the ball in mid air with both hands, to the amazement of the small contingent of Australian fans.

The match then looked set for a fourth day, as Dowrich and Samuels went about rebuilding the innings to combine for a wonderful 144 run partnership.

However, when Hazlewood took the key wicket of Dowrich for 70 to make it 4-181, the wickets began to tumble.

Lyon then removed Blackwood for just 12 to leave the home side in a delicate position at 5-198, and only 29 runs in front.

When Johnson removed Samuels for 74 the very next over, the innings was as good as over, with the last five batsmen only managing to score a combined 16 runs.

Australia managed to dismiss the Windies for just 216, needing only 47 runs for victory.

Starc was the chief destroyer, taking the last three wickets of the innings, to finish with figures of 4-28, while Johnson, Hazlewood and Lyon all took two wickets each.

With light fading, Aussie opener Dave Warner was intent on finishing the match as quickly as possible.

Warner hit 28 runs from just 20 balls, including three fours and two sixes, before he edged one to Bravo at first slip just five runs shy of victory.

Steve Smith then joined Shaun Mitch at the crease to close out the match, and take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.

Debutant Adam Voges was named man of the match for his 130 not out in the first innings.
