given caught behind. She calls the review. Swinging at a full ball on off stump. There's a spike. That's that
Connell and Alleyne's 17-run partnership is WI-W's highest for the 10th wicket in WT20Is, breaking the record of 13 between Anisa Mohammed and Munroe
Australia win by 47 runs and take the series 2-1. Hayley Matthews put the pressure on them again, despite carrying an injury, but when she fell West Indies collapsed losing 9 for 47. Unlike in Sydney, Australia held their nerve against Matthews tonight. Darcie Brown was excellent and changed the game. Tahlia McGrath had again shone with the bat.
Hayley Matthews is Player of the Match, again! That's eight in a row. And Player of the Series. "It was a bit tougher to start today, pitch was a bit slower. I want to be able to go out there and lead by example. Unfortunately we couldn't get over the line today...but want to see the girls grow."
Alyssa Healy. "Came with a good approach tonight and got the job done. The batting group seems to going really well and the bowlers have been threatening. Darcie was outstanding tonight. We are looking good heading into the ODIs. We'll have to be on song for the ODIs to make sure [Hayley] doesn't hit 300. They'll throw a bit and us, hopefully we can come out firing on Sunday."
That wraps things up for an entertaining T20 series. Hayley Matthews has been magnificent to watch. Hopefully she is fit for the ODIs. We'll be back for the first one-dayer on Sunday. For now, from Alex and Gnasher, it's goodbye.
round the wicket, slog sweeps through the leg side and picks the gap with perfection
gives herself room and carves over the off side

swing and a miss outside off, a slower ball
full at leg stump, heaves across the line to deep square leg
top shot! Short of a length outside off, drives off one leg over the off side
length ball, swings through the line to long-on
goes for the slog sweep, it hangs in the air but drops between long-on and deep midwicket
full and straight, driven down the ground
lofted in the air down the ground, and that's a terrific catch by Sutherland running in from long-off. Did very well to get there, with a dive forward
full at the pads, swings and misses
pushed down the leg side from round the wicket
round the wicket, speared in very full, appeal for lbw. Was starting to sweep and was beaten for pace. Struck the back leg. Was there an edge first. Healy calls the review. If there's no bat, this is plumb. That is the out-est thing you'll see
short of a length, pulled one bounce to deep midwicket
round the wicket, gets the yorker in, manages to jab it out
driven straight to cover, full outside off, lofted without much timing and it's a simple catch
