WI beat AUS 5th T20I: While Evin Lewis ensured that West Indies had a sizeable total on board, Australia were very much in the game as Aaron Finch and Mitchell Marsh went about their business after the dismissal of Josh Philippe early on. The Australian captain was visibly struggling due to a knee issue but consistently found the fence to keep the run-rate ticking during the powerplay.

WI beat AUS 5th T20I – Fabian Allen One-Handed Stunner: With the score reading 93/2 at the end of nine overs, the Aussies were very much in the game with Finch batting. However, Fabian Allen had other ideas as he sent the Australian skipper packing with a moment of brilliance on the field. Finch received a juicy full toss from Hayden Walsh Jr in the 10th over and smashed it down the ground, not getting the right elevation on it. Despite that, the ball looked set to travel to the fence, only for Fabian Allen to pluck it out of the air and pull off a one-handed stunner. Fabian Allen’s catch to dismiss Finch turned the tide in West Indies favour, as they eventually clinched a 16-run win. Check out Fabian Allen’s catch here:

WI beat AUS 5th T20I – Fabian Allen One-Handed Stunner: Aaron Finch departed for 34 and was his team’s top scorer as they managed to get 183 in response to West Indies’ 199. The likes of Moises Henriques, Alex Carey and Matthew Wade failed to capitalise on the platform laid by Marsh and Finch, which eventually cost them the game. Australia will now quickly look to turn their attention away to the upcoming three-match ODI series against the West Indies, starting on Wednesday in Barbados.
