Warner blasts Australia to unbeaten summer

David Warner blasted the second-fastest Twenty20 international half-century to hand Australia an eight-wicket win over West Indies and complete their dreams of an unbeaten summer

Match centre 
Scorecard summary
West Indies138/7(20 overs)
Australia142/2(11.4 overs)

A ruthless batting display from Australia has won them this game with 50 balls to spare. Warner was outstanding, and Watson took the lead after his departure to hasten Australia's victory. West Indies offered some fight in the Tests, but wilted after that to end the tour on a disappointing note. Thanks for tuning in for our coverage right through the summer. We hope you enjoyed it.
