It's just one day's rest for Australia before they take on England in Perth on Sunday. West Indies will face UAE in Melbourne on Monday in a practice game ahead of the first round of the World Cup. Gansher's report is up. Alex's piece about the Steven Smith conundrum should be up soon as well. Do check them out. For now, that's all from our side. See you soon.

Aaron Finch: Davey was the different, and Tim David. There was enough in the pitch for everyone. [On batting order] There is a method to everything we do. Still plenty of learnings. It's about managing our way to the World Cup. We want to play aggressive but at the same time we want to manage well with long flights and short turnaround times.

Nicholas Pooran: Congratulations to Australia, they played better cricket. We are getting accustomed to the conditions, putting our ego aside and working on the team plans.

David Warner is the Player of the Match, as well as the Player of the Series. "It was a fantastic all-round performance, well executed by our bowlers," he says. "At the halfway mark we had discussed about bowling Test match lines and lengths, and they nailed them. [on opening with Green] He is a bit like me. Think he is going to have a big impact in the future."

9.52pm A comprehensive 31-run win for Australia in the end. It was set up by Warner's 41-ball 75 and David's 20-ball 42. Starc then removed Mayers in the first over itself to jolt West Indies' chase. He would finish with 4 for 20, his best figures in T20I cricket. Hazlewood didn't pick up a wicket but was even more economical, giving away only 19 from his four. And that also brings an end to this series, Australia wrapping it up 2-0.

Starc to Joseph, no run

122.8kph. A slower short ball outside off - was it the back-of-the-hand version? Joseph looks to forehand it through extra cover but fails to connect

Starc to Cariah, 1 run

slightly fuller than good length on the stumps. Pushed towards long-on

Switches the angle again

full outside off, digs it out back towards the bowler

Back to around the wicket for the right-hander

Starc to Cariah, 1 run

length outside off, steered towards point

Over the wicket to left-hander Cariah

Starc to Smith, OUT

and he cleans him up with a yorker. Right in the blockhole on the leg stump. Smith tries to get his bat down on it but misses and the ball hits the leg stick

Odean Smith b Starc 4 (6b 0x4 0x6 14m) SR: 66.66

Starc goes around the wicket

Australia have run out of the permissible time to bowl their 20 overs. So the slow-over-rate penalty kicks in for them too. That means they can have only four fielders, instead of five, outside the 30-yard circle

full outside off, slices it over covers and just evades Green in the deep

Cummins to Joseph, FOUR runs

a slower one but the line went awry. Down the leg side and Joseph pulls it over and to the left of short fine leg

full around off, Hosein clears his front leg and looks to go big again. Doesn't get the elevation though and Warner takes a regulation catch tumbling to his right at mid-off

a full toss on the leg stump. Hosein works it towards long-on for one

Hazlewood to Hosein, no run

short of length outside off, another slower one. Goes for the cut but misses. Lets out a groan in frustration

Boomerang : "OK I give up. What does Vairavan mean about over rate being 12? It wasn't runs, or minutes. I'm stuck." --- 12 overs per hour

Hazlewood to Smith, 1 run

length outside off, backs away and muscles it towards deep extra cover, but only for one

almost in the blockhole, just outside off. Smith looks to smash it out but gets an inside edge onto his back leg
