    went to the ground today when it turned out to be a one-sided contest

    Shai Hope was the only WI batsman who played well today. He got a great delivery from Anderson after his well-made 50. Chase, Blackwood and Dowrich all went playing silly shots. I won't blame Holder for his dismissal because by that time situation was looking immensely bleak for WI and he had to try playing shots.

    Well played England, but this side may get annihilated in Australia (except its lower-order batting)

    Yeah, I would have had DK in there for Rahane but otherwise that is a decent enough squad.

    Smith says "He isn't worried about facing spin in India"

    Is he referring himself or the complete Australian team?

    I think he's referring to it being a meaningless series that he couldn't care less about hence he isn't worried because it just doesn't matter

    I see Smith and Warner are the only players, confident about playing spin in India.

    Its not exactly meaningless though, they always split the OD leg of their tours to the year after their test tour. I wish India does the same when we go to Australia too. 3 months there takes its toll on all players. Would rather split the test and ODI tours to different years. And the turn out will be more too as people may have only 1 or 2 chances to see the Indian team there during the summer.

    To be honest, I think it does provide a picture of where the Aussies are with respect to the SC conditions in ODIs. Though since the WC is in England, it may not be exactly a priority, just like all the ODIs in Aus were before the 2011 WC. If they brought in the league system though, that will help address these issues.

    It's not like Indian limited overs pitches even turn much anyway...

    From India at least. These are the pitches where even George Bailey could score big hundreds on. Kohli should be able to make triples.
