Australia needed Eleven runs off Sheldon Cottrell’s last over in a fairly wild conclusion. Wade hit the first ball for a 4, but West Indies had a chance when Raymon Reifer miscued the following delivery, dropping Wade in the deep.

He wonderfully blasted it from the backhand side against a short pass, more than 100 m into the stand over deep point. It was a stunning display of strength and timing. It spread online immediately.

Australia eventually managed to defeat the West Indies despite a sloppy fielding performance and a strong partnership between Aaron Finch and Matthew Wade.

Australia chased down the West Indies’ 9-145 as the fast bowler sprinted home for a 2nd run to secure the three-wicket triumph.
