Windies win T20 at Gabba

6:40 am on 14 February 2013

The West Indies men have bounced back from a 5-0 one-day series loss to Australia with a 27-run win in the one-off Twenty20 cricket international at the Gabba.

It marked the once mighty Windies' first win in Australia over the hosts in any form since 1997.

It's Australia's fifth straight T20 loss.

Australia stumbled to 164 for eight in response to a fast finishing Windies' 191 for six.

Kieron Pollard backed up with three wickets for 30, at one stage eyeing a hat-trick, after thrashing 26 off 17 balls to ensure a daunting target.
