Barath's ton goes invane as Oz thrash WI

Brisbane: Australia has recorded a comprehensive innings-and-65-run win over the West Indies late on day three of the opening Test at the Gabba, but the visitors unearthed a star of the future with opener Adrian Barath notching a record-breaking century on debut.

The wilting Windies lost 15 wickets in all on Saturday to lose by an innings and 65 runs, as Australia rumbled to their sixth straight win at the Gabba dating back to 2004.

Barath lashed 104 from just 138 balls but the visitors, following on in the second innings, could only manage 187 runs before surrendering to the Australians.
