Australia cruise to T20 sweep in Windies

Australia have completed a series clean sweep against the West Indies following a nine-wicket win in the final women's Twenty20 international in Bridgetown, Barbados.

It was another dominant display with the ball that set up the tourists' win, with the home side bowled out for 81 on the last ball of their innings after they elected to bat first.

Spinners Jess Jonassen (4-7) and Georgia Wareham (3-14) did the bulk of the damage at Kensington Oval with seven wickets between them, while pace bowler Megan Schutt took 2-14.

Australia then produced its most polished run chase of the series, chasing the total down with more than 12 overs to spare.

Alyssa Healy led the charge with a quick-fire 38 off 16 balls, featuring six boundaries and two sixes while fellow opener Beth Mooney (24 no) and Ellyse Perry (17 no) completed an easy chase midway through the eighth over.

"It was always going to be a test tonight, it's been a long trip away combined with the Ashes," coach Matthew Mott said after the match.

"I was really pleased with the effort particularly in the field to bowl them out for that and then there was a clinical batting chase," said coach Matthew Mott.

"It's been a long trip away combined with the Ashes (in England) and we like to try and finish off in style and close the book on things.

"That was the most pleasing thing about today, we turned up with same energy that we had for the ODIs at the start to I can't ask for much more than that."

Australia will return home tomorrow ahead of their T20 and ODI series against Sri Lanka starting on September 29 at North Sydney Oval.

"I think we'll tinker a little bit in the T20s against Sri Lanka with that batting order and make sure that we get the right formula ahead of a big year leading into the T20 World Cup," Mott said.

The squads for that series will be announced next Wednesday.
