West Indies 172 for 3 (Gayle 88, Fletcher 53) beat Australia 169 for 7 (Warner 63, David Hussey 27, Bravo 2-31) by seven


Don't call this an upset. Twenty20 is where it is at for West Indies, by their captain's admission, and they have copped a

fair amount of flak for that comment and their subsequent poor performances in more traditional forms of cricket. So there

was a sense of anticipation over how they would fare in their "preferred" format. Come match day in the Group of Death, and

West Indies, and Chris Gayle, turned up for the first time in two months......... see details pls log on

Really a good batting performance by the West Indians. Beating Australia convincingly is really a great thing to do .Now, Australia have to win their next match to remain in the tournament...

In my opinion that was one of the most impressive knock by the Gayle. Taking full resposibilities, Gayle never looked exhausted or playing an absurd shot. He badly punished the bowlers of Australia specially Lee. It was really frustrating for lee. West indies has shown its strength towards the cup.
