Australia wins Gabba Test

Australia easily won the first Test against the West Indies at the Gabba by an innings and 65 runs on the third day.

This was far easier than I thought and the Windies were no match to the Aussies from the onset.

Ricky Ponting declared his team's first innings after scoring 480 runs and losing eight wickets.

The Windies managed to get only 228 runs in their first innings and were asked to follow-on and the second innings was even worse.

Adrian Barath scored a superb century for the Windies but the problem is that none of his team-mates was able to score 25 runs or more.

In fact only three batsmen reached double figures and therefore the Windies could not force the Test into the fourth day.

The Windies have their work cut out for the remaining two Tests if they are to be competitive at all.

The second Test begins on Thursday in Adelaide and the Third and final Test will be in Perth.
