The World T20 Champions, West Indies, breezed through to a 27-run win against Australia in the sole T20 International at Brisbane to end their short tour of Australia on a high. Batting first on winning the toss, West Indies made the most of excellent batting conditions and a second string Australian line-up to post an imposing 191-6 on the board in their 20 overs. Johnson Charles continued his superb form from the One Day series to make a blistering 57 from just 35 balls to give the visitors the perfect start. Australia were never really in the hunt in their chase, with two run outs at the top of the order, especially that of top scorer Adam Voges (55 from 31 balls) setting them back in a big way. In the end, the hosts' run chase petered out to 164-8 with Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard doing the damage with the ball taking 2 and 3 wickets respectively.
The West Indies lost Chris Gayle (8) early to an outstanding catch from Nathan Counter-Nile, but recovered thanks to an 88 run partnership between Charles and Darren Bravo (32). At that stage the Windies were scoring at 9 an over, and with wickets in hand threatened to make well above 200. However, the Australians were able to sneak some quiet overs in the middle and pick up wickets just when the West Indies batsmen were threatening to cut loose.
