swing and miss, bowled him and it's all over. A length ball, clips the off bail, perfect delivery to end the game, aimed for the leg side and was a long way off
So now we know, 12 teams whittled down to two and it will be Sri Lanka v West Indies in the final on Sunday, 7pm IST, once again in Colombo. And shortly beforehand the Women's final takes place between England and Australia, 2.30pm start for that one. We'll be here as per usual bringing you all the best coverage, reaction and analysis. So make sure you join us then. From Sid Monga and myself, Alex Winter, see you Sunday...
So to the Presentation and George Bailey: "We were absolutely outplayed," he says. "Gayle was subdued for a while but while he's at the crease he's always in your mind. But we set ourselves to get to the semi-finals and I don't think there's one area specifically where we can improve on. But from tonight you can probably say all three!"
"We did what we had to do, everybody turned up. Chris and Marlon set it up for us and then the bowling turned up too," he says with a smile. "If you look at the quality in the dressing room, if we go out on the field and execute we can beat any team." Man of the Match for his 75 from 41 balls is Chris Gayle, the big man came good today for his side, can he do it in the big one on Sunday...
Start the Gangnam Style, West Indies have won by 74 runs and qualify for the World T20 final against Sri Lanka on Sunday. Congratulations to all in the Caribbean, their first final since 2006 Champions Trophy. They have been totally dominant today. Their big hitters fired with the bat, Chris Gayle in particular, as they posted a wonderfully entertaining score of over 200, the highest total in this year's competition. Australia also needed their big bashers to come off but Warner and Watson were removed in a hurry and the rest fell away but for a fine counterattack from George Bailey though the captain's knock was in vain.
goes to play to leg, comes off the pad into the gully, slip fields again, and again the silly throw gives away an overthrow, in fact two of them
bumper, good line, ducked under
full just outside off, slapped down to long on
"Oddly, after 14 overs, both sides had scored 113. Pretty even game then?" Err, yer James...
floated up and lifted over mid off, fine strike this is, timed really well, gave himself room and struck through the line
goes for the reverse sweep again, this time off the stumps, misses again and the turn takes it past off stump
cut into the covers where there's a misfield so they take two
goes for a reverse sweep from outside leg stump, struck on the pad
back to a wrong'un, defends it on the crease
So Last Rites here for Australia...
goes down the wicket, misses with a cut, the keeper whips off the bails, did Hogg get back? No he did not, sharp work from the keeper, had the bails off in a flash and Hogg didn't get back in time
"So what's been the best semi-final? Would you rate a high scoring game with one man hitting to all corners better than an an all-round team effort like yesterday?" Well Bud, I think we've had 20 overs of good cricket and the rest has been not very entertaining at all, yesterday's pitch was useless and this innings is a non event...
full on leg stump, flicked down to long on
dabbed into the gully from outside off, slip goes across to field, a stupid throw at the non-striker's end brings two
back of a length down the leg side
leg stump, turned into midwicket, two as the deep midwicket has to come a long way in
bumper, Hogg steps away, bowler follows him and ducks and falls over
length ball, strikes the pad, they go for the run as the ball runs back up the wicket
length outside off, angled down to third man
Sean isn't convinced that Bailey has redeemed himself: "Not trying to be cynical, but not sure that knock should save Bailey's career for the following reasons: 1. He hasn't delivered in this tournament, 2. He's occupying a position that could possibly be better filled, and 3. He really had no choice but to hit out." Rampaul back to heavy-ball um out...
around the wicket, angled in, played half-forward and gets an inside edge from off stump down to long leg
back of a length and pulled to deep square leg, well struck but finds the man
full and well wide, missed on the drive
