The rain-blighted third Test between Australia and West Indies has finished in a predictable draw, but not before Dave Warner scored a brisk final day century.

Day five was called off at 4.50pm AEDT, with Australia on 2-176 in response to West Indies’ 330.

Australian opener Warner finished 122 not out off 103 balls.

Australia finished 2-0 winners in the three-Test series, having retained the Frank Worrell trophy in Melbourne.

Days three and four of the contest were abandoned without a ball being bowled because of heavy rain.

Day two was also affected by the wet weather, with only 11.2 overs possible.

It is the first time in 26 years that consecutive days of Test cricket have been lost in Australia because of rain.
