Pattinson, playing in his first Test since March last year after recovering from chronic back and hamstring issues, spearheaded the Australian assault to rip apart the threadbare Windies batting.

The hapless Caribbean tourists were sent back in by Australia skipper Steve Smith after being dismissed for 223 in the first innings to trail the home side by 360 runs. The West Indies went into free fall in their second innings, confirming fears about their competitiveness ahead of the remaining Melbourne and Sydney Tests.

The West Indies have now won just four of their last 21 Tests and went into the first Hobart Test on the back of a humbling 10-wicket loss in their only warm-up game to a modest Cricket Australia XI.
