After electing to bat, the West Indies made 150-7 in their innings in the first Twenty20 international of the two-match series against Australia at Beausejour Cricket Ground here on Tuesday.
The modest total owed much to a swashbuckling 26-ball knock of 54 from Kieron Pollard that featured two fours and five sixes -- four of those coming off consecutive balls in the 16th and 17th overs.
Daniel Christian was the tourists' most effective bowler, taking three wickets for 27 runs.
West Indies skipper Darren Sammy had hit a blistering 84 in the final match of the one-day series two days ago, but he fell for just seven, misjudging a heave down the ground off Brett Lee that was easily caught by David Hussey.
Australia prevailed by 30 runs in the final one-day international to level the five-match series at 2-2.
Christian came into the Twenty20 team alongside James Pattinson, with George Bailey taking over the captaincy for the shortest format from Shane Watson, who filled in for the injured Michael Clarke during the one-day series.
The West Indies were without Andre Russell, who was ruled out after battling a hamstring injury during the one-day series.
It is the first time the West Indies have played a T20 international for five months and for both sides the main concern is to get in some crucial practice ahead of the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka in September.
