Coming to the match. Quick knocks from Mitchell Marsh (29 in 12 balls with three fours and two sixes) and David Warner (22 in 19 balls with three fours and a six) along with a 95-run stand between Maxwell and Tim David (31* in 14 balls, with two fours and two sixes) helped Australia post 241/4 in 20 overs.

In the run chase of 242, skipper Rovman Powell (63 in 36 balls, with five fours and four sixes) and Andre Russell (37 in 16 balls, with four boundaries and two sixes) tried their best to win it for the Windies, but they ran out of partners and were restricted to 207/9 in their 20 overs, losing by 34 runs.

Marcus Stoinis (3/36) was the lead bowler for Aussies. Spencer Johnson and Josh Hazlewood took two wickets while Adam Zampa and Jason Behrendorff took one each. (ANI)
