Chris Gayle inspired a superb win for the Windies over Australia to advance to the final of the T20 World Cup. Gayle was at his brilliant best scoring 74 off 41, ably assisted by a particularly brutal 38 off 155 by Pollard.

Australia had to score a daunting 206 to win  and never came close thanks to a good bowling performance and in particular Rampaul who took 3 wickets, dismissing the Aussies for 131.

West Indies 205 for 4 (Gayle 75*, Pollard 38) beat Australia 131 (Bailey 63, Rampaul 3-16) by 74 runs
