Haynes fell to Shemaine Campbelle having faced 73 balls and quick runs were added at the end by Alex Blackwell (27), Jodie Fields (35 not out) and Alyssa Healy (8).
West Indies were quicky in trouble as they slipped to 71 for four and were unable to recover. However, Deandra Dottin smashed 52 in 30 balls to remind everybody what she is capable of but she played a lone hand.
Merissa Aguilleira (32) and Shakera Selman (29 not out) made starts but they fell well short, bowled out in 44.3 overs as Megan Schutt, Holly Ferling, Sarah Coyte and Renee Chappell all took a wicket apiece.
Australia continue their preparations against India tomorrow (29th January) while the West Indies take on a local team.
