Mitchell Marsh struck 75 and then took three wickets to get Australia into a winning position but in the end, it came down to paceman Mitchell Starc’s stellar bowling in the final over to end the West Indies’ winning streak.

The West Indies won the first three games to clinch the five-match Twenty20 International series and went within one scoring shot Wednesday of making it four straight wins.

The host needed 11 runs off the last over but Starc bowled five consecutive dot balls before conceding a six on the final ball to secure a four-run win for Australia.

The Australians batted first and posted 189-6 in an innings twice interrupted by rain breaks, with Marsh belting his 75 from 44 balls for his third half-century of the series and sharing a 114-run second-wicket stand with skipper Aaron Finch, who contributed 53.
