West Indies captain Darren Sammy is determined to finish the tour to Australia on a high after losing the ODI series in humiliating fashion, and says the one-off T20 needs to showcase why his side is the best in the shortest format.

Darren Sammy: Looking to end on a winning note

The Windies are the current World Twenty20 champions, having beaten Sri Lanka in the final last September.

Along the way they also defeated the Aussies, and Sammy hopes Wednesday's game can make up for the 5-0 ODI series loss.

The popular skipper said: "We have to come and play like true champions. We are the world champions and we want to showcase our skills and show the people of Australia what we have.

"We have not demonstrated that a lot on this tour so we have to look to put it together Wednesday.

"We have an opportunity to finish the tour on a high. We did the job very well in Sri Lanka last year.

"The last time we played against Australia in this format we completely outplayed them so that is the kind of motivation we will carry into the match.

"The people over here in Australia have been very supportive of us and we have not demonstrated our very best cricket for them to see, so we want to give them something special before we head back home."
