The Australian batting sensationally collapsed in the first T20I against West Indies and failed to chase down 145/6 having been at 108/4 with more than 9 overs remaining.

Aaron Finch won the toss in St Lucia and asked the Men in Maroon to bat first. In the absence of their regular skipper Kieron Pollard, who was ruled out just before the match due to a slight niggle, were restricted to a middling total as Josh Hazlewood registered stunning figures of 3-12 in his quota of 4 overs.

But during the chase, Australia lost their last 6 wickets for just 19 runs to hand the Windies an 18 run win.

Brief Score: West Indies 145 for 6 (Andre Russell 51, Josh Hazlewood 3-12, Mitchell Marsh 2-26) beat Australia 127 (Mitchell Marsh 51, Matthew Wade 33, Obed McCoy 4-26, Hayden Walsh 3-23) by 18 runs.
