However, after Australia’s captain Steve Smith won the toss and elected to bat first on a humid day, they collapsed to 86 all out against an attack that was without Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, and Pat Cummins in the 25th over.
With 259 balls left, Australia scored all the runs required in response, capping a stunning surrender on the part of the Caribbean team.

Detonating In just his second match, Fraser-McGurk, a 21-year-old opener, displayed his extraordinary prowess by hitting five fours and three sixes in a fast 41 before being caught trying to hit another huge hit off Alzarri Joseph.

The only other wicket to fall was Aaron Hardie, who was caught behind by Oshane Thomas for two.
Josh Inglis scored a perfect 35 while Smith was still six out.
Before that, pacer Xavier Bartlett scored 4-21 in addition to 4-17 on his Melbourne debut. Lance Morris, a fellow fast bowler, took 2-13 before limping off the field due to a side pain.

Kjorn Ottley was trapped leg before wicket for eight by Bartlett, and although Athanaze and Keacy Carty stabilized the ship, they were hardly scraping by with just 36 runs from the first ten overs.
Their alliance came to an end when Marnus Labuschagne held a superb diving catch at point to dismiss Carty for ten, giving Morris his first international wicket.

Morris was trapped in the ropes by skipper Shai Hope, who needed a huge score. Morris was dismissed after only five balls by Shaun Abbott, leaving the visitors behind 43-3.
Teddy Bishop, making his debut, was shortly out of the field midway through his fifth over, out for a duck, undone by the sheer velocity of Morris, whose fullish ball clattered the middle stump.

The only bright spot was Athanaze, who made a valiant 32 from 60 balls before mishitting a sweep off spinner Adam Zampa, allowing Abbott to make an easy catch.

The West Indies were reduced to two wickets in three balls, as Matthew Forde was run out following a hilarious mix-up with Roston Chase, and Romario Shepherd was out for a golden duck to Bartlett.

Then, Bartlett took two more wickets to thoroughly clear up the tail.
