Australia 199 for 6 dec (Khawaja 45, Joseph 3-33) and 511 for 7 dec (Head 175, Labuschagne 163, Thomas 2-53) beat West Indies 77 (Boland 3-16, Neser 3-22, Starc 3-29) and 214 (Chanderpaul 47, Phillip 43, Lyon 3-57) by 419 runs

Adelaide: Australia have moved one step closer to cementing their spot at next year's ICC World Test Championship final with a dominant 419-run victory over the West Indies in the second Test in Adelaide on Sunday.

The World Test Championship pacesetters wrapped up the 2-0 series sweep late in the first session on the fourth day of the clash, with pacer Michael Neser completing proceedings by dismissing Marquino Mindley for a duck.

It means Australia moves further ahead at the head of the World Test Championship standings, with the Aussies now boasting an impressive 75 percent win-percentage for the current period.

Pat Cummins' side can increase their lead at the top when they host South Africa in a three-match series that commences in Brisbane later this week, before they embark on a difficult four-Test series in India during February and March that may decide which two teams qualify for next year's final.

The series was bitterly disappointing for the West Indies, who now slip out of the race for next year’s World Test Championship final as a result of the two disappointing losses.

While the Caribbean side put up a fight for much of the first Test in Perth, the second Test in Adelaide was a different story and the 77 the West Indies mustered during the second innings was the lowest total they have managed in Test history in Australia and their second lowest against the Aussies overall.

It was also the largest defeat (in runs) that the West Indies have lost a Test match by and saw them drop behind England and to seventh overall on the current World Test Championship standings with a 40.91 percent win-percentage.
