In a grim foreboding of what lies ahead for the Caribbean tourists in the three-Test series, Australia cruised to 438 for three at stumps on the opening day with the West Australian pair taking the game away from the Windies.
At the close, Voges was unbeaten on 174 with Marsh not out 139 in an unbeaten fourth-wicket partnership of 317.
