Australia have won this comfortably, though had West Indies prevented that horrendous start to their chase, we would have had a more competitive match. Nevertheless, the crowd would have been entertained, especially in the Australian innings. Join us for the second T20 game on the 23rd.

A few comments from our readers before signing off.

Shafaqat Ali: "Unfair to criticize this WI outfit considering they are without six regular members. Much better PAK team failed to make any mark in any of the formats. I am sure WI will do lot better in T20 World Cup on their home grounds. Good luck Gayle and Co"

Karnail Singh: "Yes Peter Best you read it right. I live in the USA and follow bastketball. There are lots of kids from WI playing bastetball these days just last year a seven footer from WI was drafted during the first round and got paid $32 millions for four years. I talk to one of them he said, "cricket is very expinsive sport"

That's all, folks. Thanks for tuning in. See you in a couple of days. Adios

Rob: "Nice try to belittle the Aussie achievements this summer, but you seem to forget that we whitewashed an English side that did very well against SA, humbled the 'mighty' Indian side 4-2 when they were tipped to annihilate us at home, and then took home the ICC Trophy."
