Ruthless Aussies thrash winless Windies

Melbourne: Ryan Harris stars again as Australia humble West Indies by 113 runs in the series opener of common wealth bank series here at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Shane Watson celebrated his 100th one-day international appearance by top scoring with a half-century as Australia squandered a promising start against the West Indies in the opening match of the Commonwealth Bank series.

Watson and Shaun Marsh put on 50 for the first wicket before Marsh fell for 20 in the 11th over, caught behind by wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin off the bowling of Dwayne Smith.
