Australia beat West Indies by 31 runs

Brisbane Cricket Ground (Woolloongabba), Brisbane

That's it then from this game and this series as well. Aaron Finch has been handed the trophy and the Australia players are posing for some team pictures. Australia will now host England in a three-game T20I series leading up to the T20 World Cup. The first match will be played on 9th October at 1.40 pm IST (8.10 am GMT). On the other hand, West Indies will take on UAE in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup warm-up match on 10th October at 5.30 am IST (12 am GMT). Do join us for the coverage. Till then, take care and goodbye.
The skipper of Australia, Aaron Finch says that it was an incredible win and the difference were David Warner and Tim David. He credits David for his batting performance. Adds that one is always learning and that there will be challenges. Mentions that they are trying to manage the workload of the players for the England series to keep them fresh for the World Cup.
Nicholas Pooran, captain of West Indies says that the Aussies were the better team and deserved to win and congratulates them. Adds that they are getting accustomed to the conditions and hopes to do well in the upcoming World Cup.
David Warner (75 off 42 balls) is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH and the SERIES as well. Warner says that it was a fantastic all round performance. He praises their bowlers for the way they defended this total. Adds that he had a nice little break and is looking forward to Perth. Mentions that Cameron Green is like himself when he first started and further adds that he will have a big impact in the future.
Earlier in the game, Nicholas Pooran won the toss and elected to field and after picking up an early wicket, David Warner counter-attacked. This put the Windies' bowlers under pressure and runs started to flow. The visitors did manage to get rid of Warner and pulled things back a bit. Then came a powerful cameo by Tim David but once again the Windies bowlers came back and ended on a high. Alzarri Joseph was very impressive and so were a couple of other bowlers. Chasing 179 runs to win at the Gabba was never going to be easy and the failure of the middle-order made things very difficult for the visitors. In the end, they lost the game by a fair bit.
West Indies were behind the eight ball right from the off with Kyle Mayers departing early. Brandon King looked pretty good though and Johnson Charles managed to stay at the crease. Once King fell though, the middle order just couldn't get any momentum in the chase. Rovman Powell and Akeal Hosein did manage to hit a few lusty blows and Hosein in particular looked good but it was already a bit too late by then. The Windies will now look to reflect on the little things they did wrong and gear up for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
Australia had a big total on the board and needed a couple of quick wickets. Mitchell Starc got rid of Kyle Mayers in the very first over but they couldn't get another breakthrough in the Powerplay. It was then Adam Zampa who broke a dangerous partnership between King and Charles. The Aussies were then able to pick up frequent wickets in the middle phase and had the game well in control. Their bowlers managed to fend off a late charge from Powell and Hosein and got over the line with ease with Starc picking up four wickets.
A comfortable victory in the end for Australia and they have sealed the two-game T20I series 2-0. West Indies were competitive in both games but just didn't have enough firepower with bat or ball to get past the Aussies.

11.4 0

The wrong 'un almost does the trick for Adam Zampa but Powell survives. This is served on a length and around off, spinning in. Powell looks to block it out but misses and gets pinged on the pads. There is a huge appeal for LBW and the finger goes up! Rovman Powell does review it in an instant and the third umpire is called into action. There is nothing on Hotspot and UltraEdge shows that there is no bat involved. Ball Tracking shows that the ball is just going over the leg stump and the on-field decision is reversed.

11.3 1

The keeper, Wade settles under it and takes it well. West Indies lose their 4th wicket now.

OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Oh, my God! Mitchell Starc has taken an absolute blinder of a return catch and Kyle Mayers cannot believe it. Starc serves a low full toss, angling in from around off and at over 141 clicks. Mayers punches it firmly back towards the bowler. The ball goes to just the right of Starc who sticks out his left hand on the followthrough and manages to somehow grasp it. A bit of magic has provided Australia an early breakthrough here.

TOSS - West Indies have won the toss and have elected to BOWL first.

We are back for the chase! The players are walking out to the middle. Kyle Mayers and Johnson Charles are the two openers for West Indies. Mitchell Starc to start proceedings with the ball. Here we go...
... THE RUN CHASE ...
Right then, Australia have posted a decent total on the board and with their bowling attack they will be confident enough to defend this one. West Indies, on the other hand need their batters to step up and they need to utilise the Powerplay well. Will they be able to chase this down? Or will the Aussies defend and seal the series 2-0? We will find out soon. Stay tuned for the second essay.
David Warner is up for a chat. He says that the Windies' bowlers have closed out the innings well but is happy with the total. Reckons the pitch is a bit sluggish and the ball isn't coming onto the bat. On Tim David, warner says that he hits the ball a long way. Ends by saying that 180 is a par score on this wicket and the Powerplay will set the tone for them.
West Indies bowled well but in patches and they were not disciplined enough as well. They looked a bit out of ideas when David Warner was batting and once he got out it was Tim David who punished them badly. However, they did pull things back a bit at the end. Alzarri Joseph was the pick of the bowler with 3 wickets for 21 runs in his four overs. Obed McCoy picked up a couple as well and Odean Smith got one wicket too. Their batters now have a tough task of chasing this total down against a quality Aussie bowling attack.
Australia will be pretty happy with their batting performance. Although they did lose Cameron Green early on, David Warner was on song from the very first ball. Warner and Aaron Finch added 85 runs to the total before Finch was dismissed and Warner too fell on 75 off just 41 balls. Tim David also scored a quickfire 42 off 20 balls and he along with Steven Smith built a half-century stand to help Australia go past the 175-run mark.
Australia have managed to get to a really good total of 178 runs but at one point they could have pushed for 200 as well. They will take it though and West Indies will be a bit disappointed with their effort and they know that they have to put on a good batting effort to chase this down.

OUT! TAKEN! Alzarri Joseph strikes and gets the big wicket of Green. Joseph bowls this on a hard length and on off, Cameron Green goes for the pull shot again but gets it more from the toe end of his bat and it goes straight up in the air towards covers where Jason Holder settles under it and completes a nice catch. Australia lose their first.

Alzarri Joseph continues bowling on a shorter length, on leg this time, Cameron Green goes for the pull shot again but misses and it carries through to the keeper. There is an appeal for caught behind as there was noise but tunred down. Nicholas Pooran decides against the review. The replay shows that the ball hit the arm.
