Australia won tri series by beat West Indies by 58 runs

71

West Indies got off to a good start, but then lost 3 quick wickets which effected the chase.

Kieron Pollard and Denesh Ramdin tried to hard together to build up a partnership but when Pollard got dismissed, it was always going to be an uphill task for the hosts.

Mitchell Marsh was clinical with the ball and his triple strike got back the chase.

Adam Zampa kept things quiet in the middle overs and like it has always been, Australia never let the intensity dip anytime in the field. Quite fittingly they are the champions.

Mitchell Starc to take the new ball. Andre Fletcher and Johnson Charles to open for the hosts.
WI need 271 runs to win the Tri-Nation series.
Australia finish on 270/8 with contributions from Wade, Marsh, Smith and Finch. Gabriel and Holder picked up two wickets each for the home side. 
A magnificent half-century by Wade. He was under pressure in this game, for the final and the West Indies players were coming at him.
