Commentary

West Indies won by 27 runs | Australia Vs West Indies Live Score, Only T20I

So the West Indies have won the one-off T20I and with it they end their Australian tour on a high. Something to cheer for them before they get back on their flight to home. That's it from us on this game, join us for tomorrow for the first day of the 2nd Test between South Africa and Pakistan. Till then, take care, good bye!
Pollard: Yea it is good to end the tour on a high. But on the whole it has been a disappointing last few weeks. We learnt a lot, we have a few more matches building up to the Champions Trophy in June, we will work on our weak areas and hopefully will comeback stronger.
Kieron Pollard is the Man of the Match
So the West Indies have done really well today, applied pressure right throughout the innings, never really let the Aussies off the hook. Adam Voges played a fighting knock but it was a little too much for the rest of the batsman. Kieron Pollard bagged three wicket to restrict their run flow.

19.6 Tino Best to Clint McKay 0
no run, good length delivery following the batsman, was a full toss right on Clint McKay, he manages to keep that out and some heated exchanges between the duo but in the end it is all smiles as they shake hands
Two slips in for the last ball
19.5 Tino Best to Nathan Coulter-Nile 1lb
leg byes, 1 run, the slower delivery this time, Coulter-Nile walks across the line and tries to whip it over to the onside, misses and is hit on the pads, a friednly check from Best, little too high though
19.4 Tino Best to Clint McKay 1b
byes, 1 run, fuller length delivery following the batsman, he swings and misses and so does the keeper
19.3 Tino Best to Clint McKay 2
2 runs, dropped, slower delivery on the stumps, Clint McKay mistimes it in the air and Narine runs back from mid-wicket, was never really in control and misses it completely
19.2 Tino Best to Nathan Coulter-Nile 1
1 run, good length delivery following the batsman again, Coulter-Nile under edges this one to short fine leg
19.2 Tino Best to Nathan Coulter-Nile 1wd
wide, short ball follows the batsman as he makes room, the square leg umpire says it is too high and calls a wide
19.1 Tino Best to Clint McKay 1
1 run, good length delivery outside off stump, Clint McKay drives this one to extra cover
Tino Best [2.0-0-14-0] is back into the attack

Clint McKay - 3(4) This over: 0 runs
Kieron Pollard
(4.0 - 0 - 30 - 3)
18.6 Kieron Pollard to Nathan Coulter-Nile 6
SIX, another shocking short ball from Pollard, knew that Coulter-Nile was waiting for it yet bowls the same and pays the penalty, Coulter-Nile delightfully pulls this one to deep square leg
18.5 Kieron Pollard to Nathan Coulter-Nile 6
SIX, finally gets it right, normal bouncer on the stumps, Coulter-Nile pulls this hard and way over the deep mid wicket fence for a six. Pollard just clapping his hands there
