As Australia Captain Aaron Finch found form against Ireland, the Gabba was packed to capacity.

Finch's 44-ball 63 helped the Aussies post a challenging 179 on the board, bringing to life a part of the crowd in the stands, dressed as sheriffs.

Beers in hand, the 'super troopers' were all smiles as Finch clobbered three sixes during his match-winning knock -- the Aussie now has the 3rd highest number of sixes in T20Is, a dizzying 125 sixes.

Surrounded by a bunch of kids, pacer Pat Cummins was seen happily obliging them with autographs. The match against Ireland was a good outing for the newest Aussie ODI skipper as he finished with figures of 2 for 28.

Australia move to second in Group 1 behind New Zealand, who have a game in hand, but the hosts missed a golden opportunity to lift their net run-rate above third-placed England.
