Ricky Ponting's century set up a series-clinching, 50-run victory for Australia in the fourth one-dayer against West Indies in Brisbane.
Ponting hit 106 from 112 balls as the hosts piled up 324-7, the highest one-day international total ever seen at the ground, after being sent into bat by West Indies skipper Chris Gayle.
Despite half-centuries from Narsingh Deonarine, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Smith, the tourists' run chase finished well short on 274-8.
Australia lead the five-match series 3-0 - the third match was abandoned due to rain - ahead of the final instalment in Melbourne on February 19.
Gayle's decision to field backfired in spectacular fashion as Australia opener Shane Watson immediately went on the offensive with 26 off 22 balls.
Watson and opening partner Tim Paine put on 43 in just six overs and, although both failed to build on their promising starts, the tone of the innings had been firmly set.
Medium pacer Smith (2-59) was grateful for Wavell Hinds' sensational diving catch after running back from mid-on to dismiss Watson from the first delivery of the seventh over.
Paine (24) also fell to an excellent piece of fielding when Pollard plucked a firm cut out of the air at backward point to give Darren Sammy (2-44) the second breakthrough.
But Ponting and Cameron White kept up the momentum during a 131-run, third-wicket stand in 24.2 overs.
White's contribution was 63 off 78 balls, although there was a nasty moment when, on 35, he was hit on the jaw by a Pollard bouncer that evaded the grille of his helmet.
His eventual downfall came in the 40th over when he top-edged a delivery from left-arm spinner Nikita Miller (1-55) to Sammy at deep third man and a subsequent x-ray cleared him of any major facial damage.
Ponting went to his 29th one-day century, but first at the Gabba, in the next over with a single off Ravi Rampaul (1-68).
Adam Voges (16) brought up the 250 for Australia when he hit Rampaul over the midwicket boundary for six.
His innings came to an abrupt end two balls later when he opted to hit straighter down the ground and found Miller at long-on.
Ponting finally holed out to Rampaul for 106 after he tried to pull Smith behind square.
But Michael Hussey (23) and James Hopes (42) then took Australia to a formidable total by adding 52 in quick time in the final overs.
West Indies initially made a promising start in reply, Gayle hitting six boundaries in the first five overs.
Refusing to take up anything less than an attacking stance, the Jamaican left-hander moved his side to 42-0 after five overs but that was the high point.
Openers Travis Dowlin (8) and Gayle (34) edged behind in consecutive overs from Ryan Harris and Doug Bollinger respectively.
And, although Deonarine (53) resisted for a while, wickets continued to fall regularly.
When Bollinger (2-44) bowled Denesh Ramdin (15) in the 31st over, West Indies looked doomed at 146-6.
Pollard (62) and Smith (59no) resisted with an entertaining 102-run, seventh wicket partnership but the required rate had long since spiralled out of control and Australia cruised through to victory.
