Warner, Starc fire as Australia sweep West Indies

David Warner and Mitchell Starc impressed as reigning T20 World Cup champions .

Australia saw off West Indies by 31 runs to sweep the T20 series 2-0.

Warner clubbed 75 from 41 balls at the top of the order as Australia posted 178-7 at The Gabba – Tim David also contributing a sprightly 42 off 20 balls – before left-arm quick Starc took 4-20 to restrict West Indies to 147-8.

Australia – who won the series opener on the Gold Coast by three wickets – will now face England in a three-match series ahead of the T20 World Cup, with the first game in Perth on Sunday before two matches in Canberra next week.

Starc will sit out the series opener with Australia opting to rest him, fellow seamers Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins, leg-spinner Adam Zampa and off-spinning all-rounder Glenn Maxwell from that match at Optus Stadium.
