After Jess Cameron and Rachael Haynes had guided Australia to a daunting total of 259 for seven with knocks of 75 and 52 respectively, they restricted their opponents to 145.

Merissa Aguilleira top scored with 23 but in reality West Indies never made any inroads and were well beaten - although it was harsh on Shaquana Quintyne who took three for 27.

Ellyse Perry finished with three for 19 for Australia.

Australia had won the toss and elected to bat, a sound decision as Haynes and Meg Lanning put on 52 before the latter was caught by Kyshona Knight for 31.

Haynes and Cameron put on 64 before the former was caught by Knight for 52 off 74 deliveries including six boundaries.

Cameron top-scored for Australia with a speedy 75 off 76 balls including two sixes and eight boundaries before she too was caught by Knight.

West Indies' response started slowly, Australia reducing them to 41 for three.

It was not until Aguilleira and Deandra Dottin began to set about the bowlers that they looked like they would have a go at emulating the Australia total.

However, their partnership was brought to an end when Aguilleira was clean bowled by Lisa Sthalekar and with her exit on 88 for four, so went the West Indies' chances.

It took until the 30th over for them to bring up the 100 mark as they were well beaten.

Australia's Alex Blackwell told Sky Sports 1: "This was a great job by the girls.

"We were challenged through the tournament so to win here is a really special feeling - we are going to celebrate this one.

"With runs on the board in a final I would back our girls to defend that.

"We did it for the guys back home."

Megan Schutt added: "It's a privilege to be here, it's the most amazing feeling ever. There is no other place I would rather be."

Aguilleira said: "There is so much we can get from this experience.

"We knew our batting was at fault at times and we didn't step up today.

"It is a great achievement. We have surprised a few people back home, our fans are really proud of us."
