Australia Wins by 177 runs to Clinch Series
Australia has secured a comprehensive Test series win over the West Indies, beating the tourists by 177 runs on day four at the MCG.
For large portions of the fourth day, it looked as if the West Indies would fight their way through to a fifth, especially when Holder and Ramdin combined for the team's first 100-run partnership of the series.
While Peter Siddle (1 for 35) and Josh Hazlewood (0 for 40) struggled to make an impact for Australia with the ball, it was left to all-rounder Mitch Marsh (4 for 61) and man-of-the-match Nathan Lyon (3 for 85) to lead the way.
Marsh in particular was impressive, with his increased pace and nagging consistency bringing about a number of key wickets, while Lyon was an ever-threatening weapon.
The late West Indian collapse came after Ramdin and Holder had put together an inspired counter-attack, forcing Australia onto the back foot for the first time in the match and causing some slight concern for Steve Smith.
But when Marsh found the outside edge of Ramdin's bat late in the final session, the result became inevitable.
Marsh and James Pattinson (2 for 49) wrapped the final handful of wickets to secure the big win and the Frank Worrell Trophy for Australia.
The result sees Australia claim the three-match series 2-0, with the New Year's Test still to play.
