Thanks to everyone who tuned into Wide World of Sports' live blog of day one of the Adelaide Test.
The team will be back on board to cover the second day as Australia, 3-330, looks to build on a strong platform.
Marnus Labuschagne's blazing start to the summer rolled on and Travis Head scored his first Test century at home as Australia piled misery on the West Indies on day one in Adelaide.
The Australians are 3-330 at stumps on day one of the day-night second Test after Labuschagne compiled 120 runs from 235 balls and Head pummelled 114 from 139.

The Australians reach stumps on day one of the Adelaide Test on 3-330 from 89 overs.
Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head are unbeaten on 120 and 114 respectively.
The West Indies have some serious questions to answer, having failed to take a wicket after the 43rd over and having used seven bowlers.
Travis Head notches a ton!
The left-hander plays a clinical off-drive off the bowling of Alzarri Joseph as he hits a four and brings up triple figures from 125 balls.
He was gutted after chopping on for 99 in the Perth Test, but bouncing back with a century in front of his home crowd in Adelaide must make for a sweet feeling.
"For Travis Head and all the people in South Australia, that is a very special moment," Ian Smith says on the Fox Cricket broadcast.
"As good a No.5's innings as you'll see in Test cricket, this from Travis Head," Kerry O'Keeffe adds.
"Take a bow, son."
In an indication of just how special a run Marnus Labuschagne is having, he's one of just three men to have scored three Test centuries in a row against the West Indies.
Australia's first drop has joined Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar (1970-71) and Pakistan great Mohammad Yousuf (2006-07).
Marnus Labuschagne has another Test ton!
The world's top-ranked batter in Test cricket drives a Devon Thomas ball through the point region as he hits a four and reaches triple figures from 186 deliveries.
His Adelaide hundred follows a 204 and an unbeaten 104 in the first Test in Perth, which Australia won by 164 runs.
"What a summer he's having … what a player," Brendon Julian says on the Fox Cricket broadcast.
"That's a great innings," Mark Waugh adds.
"There's no luck today or tonight in that innings. It's been a pure, classy, No.3 Test hundred. He's just chipped away, hit the bad ball, his concentration's been amazing as usual."
Kerry O'Keeffe is also marvelling at Labuschagne's knock.
"Low false-shot percentage, he knew they were going to attack his off-side game, he was ready for them, he slapped them through cover-point," O'Keeffe says.
"Brilliant, strategic innings from Marnus Labuschagne."
Michael Hussey had described Labuschagne's hot streak as "unbelievable" when the 28-year-old brought up his half-century.
Kerry O'Keefe has made a dire call on the West Indies' situation in the Test as the tourists struggle to make their fourth breakthrough.
The West Indies haven't taken a wicket in almost 30 overs, having failed to claim a scalp since Steve Smith scooped the ball back to Jason Holder as he was dismissed caught and bowled during the second session.
"If they don't get (another) two or three (wickets) tonight they almost condemn themselves to be batting tomorrow night in the bewitching hour," O'Keeffe said on the Fox Cricket coverage with Australia three down.
"So they've got to bowl Australia out first thing tomorrow by getting at least six tonight."
Australian captain Pat Cummins insists David Warner has the team's "absolute support" in the wake of the opener's sensational decision to withdraw his appeal against his lifetime leadership ban.
"I chatted to Davey today and he's great," Cummins said as he chatted to Adam Gilchrist and Brian Lara in the Fox Cricket commentary box.
"We really support Davey. He's a huge member of our side. He's been fantastic for me my whole career … he's been an awesome leader, especially the last few years. He has our absolute support. We really back him and respect his decision."
