    made an early meal

    Australia made an early meal of the target as they reached home in just 12.2 overs after losing one wicket, that of Adam Gilchrist, the match lasting all but 42.2 overs in total.

    Fast bowlers Glenn McGrath (3-17) and Shaun Tait (3-39) led the Australian juggernaut as they shared six wickets between them, while Stuart Clark, Brad Hogg and Andrew Symonds took one wicket each.

    Please explain the highlighted group of words.

    basically, crushed the other team
    and Australians were basically impossible to win against.
    "Juggernaut" classifies something as being unbeatable and invincible.
