Australia take on West Indies in the second and final T20Im of the two-match series in Brisbane, on October 7. The hosts have already won the first T20I and are leading the series 1-0. The series is an ideal preparation for both teams ahead of the T20 World Cup which starts in two weeks. 

Australia chased down a tricky total of 146 after being 58/5 inside 8 overs. Skipper Aaron Finch who has endured a tough timer with the bat in recent times scored 58 off 53 deliveries to win the game for his side. He was ably supported by Mattew Wade (39 off 36). The duo added 69 together to take the side home.

 “I wanted to target the short boundary but got out, nice to get a couple though. I did not like the first one hitting on the head [on the first ball he faced from Joseph]. Really liked batting in the middle order, something different. We probably would swap it around in the next game [on the opening combination]. We gonna keep tinkering with things so that we got all bases covered going into the World Cup” said Finch.
