Cave Hill (Barbados): Shane Watson scored 95, as Australia's batsmen used a modest attack and the relaxed atmosphere of a day/night limited overs tour match on Saturday to warm-up for the imminent One-day Internationals series against West Indies.
Watson smote six fours and four sixes from 85 balls to set-up a crushing 211-run victory for the Australians over the University of the West Indies' Vice Chancellor's XI at the Three Ws Oval.
Watson is seeking to resume his international career, after injury sidelined him for most of the last year, and he gave West Indies early signs that he could be a difficult customer in the five ODIs to lead Australia to a formidable 337 for six from their allocation of 50 overs.
He was one of four batsmen that passed 50 in the innings - David Hussey made 55 from 36 balls, stand-in captain Michael Clarke retired out on 53 from 35 balls, and Mike Hussey got 50 from 72 balls.
Kemar Roach was the pick of the Vice Chancellor's XI's bowlers with two for 47 from eight overs, Rampaul captured two for 70 from nine overs, and Sammy took two for 78 for nine overs.
Australia's bowlers then made sure the visitors had an early night, when they dismissed the Vice Chancellor's XI for 126 in 33.1 overs.
Left-arm medium-fast bowler Nathan Bracken was the pick of the Aussie bowlers with three wickets for 25 runs from eight overs.
David Hussey took two for four from 2.1 overs and Mitchell Johnson collected two for 24 from five overs.
West Indies wicketkeeper/batsman Denesh Ramdin led the way with the bat for the Vice Chancellor's XI with 43 from 58 balls, but no other batsman made more than 15.
The match was Australia's only warm-up prior to facing West Indies in a five-match One-day International series, starting on Tuesday at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex in St. Vincent.
