David Warner scored 81 off 49 balls, smacking nine fours and three sixes but was one of two wickets to fall in the 14th over from Chase, as Australia lost three wickets in the space of ten balls struggling on 117 for four at the end of the 14th over.

Chase, derailed Australia’s pursuit with the wickets of Warner and Josh Inglis in one over to end up with 2-19.

The home team never found their way back into the contest and was restricted to 183-5.

“It’s a very good feeling to come here and get a win.” “The boys showed some heart and courage. We had good plans through the three games but execution let us down,” West Indies captain Rowman Powell said after losing the series 2-1.

Australia fast bowler Xavier Bartlett, 2 for 37, got openers Johnson Charles and Kyle Mayers, striking twice as West Indies stumbled to 17 for three in the third over.

Charles edged Barlett’s fifth delivery to wicketkeeper Inglis and Mayers played a short ball back onto his stumps in the pacer’s second over.

Chase arrived to revive the innings, hitting three fours and a brace of sixes as he put on 55 for the fourth wicket with Powell who made 21 from 14 balls.

When both fell in successive overs to leave West Indies stumbling again on 79 for five in the ninth over, Russell and Rutherford came together in the sixth wicket partnership of 139 to propel the Caribbean side to 220-6.
