West Indies had almost pulled off a victory in the 4th T20I, but a dramatic final over changed the course of the game in favour of Australia. Since the series was already secured, West Indies rested a few key players and tested their bench strength in the last match. They have already won the series 3-1 and will be keen to make it 4-1 by winning the 5th T20I.
Australia can sense some sort of relief, as they have avoided a potential whitewash. With only 11 runs to defend in the final over, Mitchell Starc bowled well and brought the first victory for Australia in this series. Mitchell Marsh has been the best performer in this Australian T20 side.
