Australia's Mitchell Starc claimed five wickets as the West Indies were bundled out for just 70 on their way to an embarrassing defeat in the first One-Day International.
Australia made light of the feeble score — the West Indies' third-lowest ODI total — romping to victory in just 9.2 overs for the loss of one wicket.
Left-armer Starc snared five wickets for 20 runs as the tourists imploded after winning the toss and electing to bat in the first game of the five-match series.
The tourists' score was well short of Australia's 91 against the West Indies at the same venue in 1987, the previous lowest total at the WACA Ground.
