In the modest 201-run chase, Australia lost their captain Aaron Finch in the 8th over. But his opening partner David Warner cracked seven boundaries and one six, and in tandem with Steve Smith powered Australia into a commanding position. The home team did encounter a minor obstacle when Sikandar Raza and Ryan Burl combined to pick up the scalps of Warner and Alex Carey. Burl also picked up the wickets of Marcus Stoinis and Marsh in the 30th over. But Glenn Maxwell blasted three sixes and three boundaries to finish with a scintillating 9-ball unbeaten 32 to ensure Australia wrap up the game quickly.
