Australia beat West Indies by 114 runs in the final of the ICC Women's World Cup in Mumbai.

After Jess Cameron and Rachael Haynes had guided Australia to a daunting total of 259-7 with knocks of 75 and 52 respectively, they bowled the Windies out for just 145.

Merissa Aguilleira top scored with 23 but in reality West Indies never made any inroads and were well beaten - after Shaquana Quintyne had earlier impressed with the ball in taking 3-27.

Haynes and Meg Lanning put on 52 for Australia before the latter was caught by Kyshona Knight for 31.

Haynes and Cameron then put on 64 before Cameron 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 as Australia quickly reduced them to 41-3.

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

However, their partnership was brought to an end when Aguilleira was clean bowled by Lisa Sthalekar and with her exit on 88-4, so went the West Indies' chances.

It took until the 30th over for them to bring up the 100 mark and they never looked anything but well beaten, as the Australians claimed their sixth world title.
