Twitter reactions: Australia seal series with a massive win over West Indies in the Adelaide Test


Australia kept their pink-ball domination with a massive 419-run victory in the second and final Test against the West Indies at Adelaide Oval on Sunday. The hosts clean-swept the visitors after bundling them for just 77 in their second innings, with the Windies losing their final four batters for just eight runs in the afternoon of Day 4.

After Scott Boland‘s triple-wicket over on Day 3, Mitchell Starc and Michael Neser ran through the West Indies batting unit and claimed three wickets apiece today as only five Caribbean batters could score in double figures.

Travis Head was named Player of the Match for his unbelievable 175 in Australia’s first innings. Similarly, Marnus Labuschagne grabbed the Player of the Series after hitting a double-century and two hundreds in the four innings he batted.

Brief scores: Australia 511/7 decl (Travis Head 175, Marnus Labuschagne 163; Devon Thomas 2/53) and 199/6 decl (Usman Khawaja 45, Travis Head 38*; Alzarri Joseph 3/33) beat West Indies 214 (Tagnarine Chanderpaul 47, Anderson Phillip 43; Nathan Lyon 3/57) and 77 (Scott Boland 3/16, Michael Neser 3/22, Mitchell Starc 3/29) by 419 runs.

“Nice toss to win, boys batted particularly well the first day. The partnership between Marnus and Travis set the game up for us. It’s been a good week. Everyone is contributing when they need to. He (Marnus) is batting really well and very adaptable to whichever situation in that time, and no reason why he can’t continue that form further. Last night he (Boland) was spectacular, Ness has been excellent today, and Starc keeps doing what he does best for a number of years now,” said Australia’s stand-in skipper Steve Smith after the game.
