THE full power of the West Indies steam-rollered Sri Lanka in their World Series Cup one-day match in Hobart, Tasmania.

The "juniors" of international cricket managed to put together a brave 197 against the menacing pace attack but their bowlers made little impression on the West Indies batsmen, and loose fielding did not help their cause.

When Richie tickled a delivery short for a single, the West Indies had won by eight wickets with more than nine overs in hand.

The result was a convincing reminder of the West Indies' dominance in the three-nation series. After the first three matches, they are clearly ahead of Australia and then Sri Lanka in the table.
