Australia scores comfortable win over Windies to wrap up series

_87408952_australia1BBC – Australia wrapped up a comfortable 177-run victory over West Indies on day four of the second Test in Melbourne to take an unassailable 2-0 series lead.

An overnight declaration on 179-3 set the tourists an unlikely 460 to win.

Wickets fell regularly but Denesh Ramdin (59) and Jason Holder (68), who came together at 150-5, hit half centuries in a 100-run partnership.

Mitchell Marsh, who finished with 4-61, dismissed both men as the Windies lost their last five wickets for 32 runs.

On a decent batting surface, all of the top five made reasonable starts to their respective innings.
