All-rounder Mitchell Marsh claimed four wickets as Australia broke up a defiant West Indies second innings to claim a 177-run win Tuesday in the second test to retain the Frank Worrell Trophy.

Captain Jason Holder and Denesh Ramdin both scored half centuries and shared an aggressive 100-run partnership to highlight a gritty batting performance for the West Indies after Australia declared on its overnight score of 179-3.

Chasing the unlikely target of 460, the West Indies batted patiently in the early stages and went to tea on 146-4. The test seemed destined for a fifth day, but Marsh (4-61) sparked a collapse midway through the evening session when he had Ramdin caught behind for 59.
