FEATURE: Power of Chris Gayle

Colombo, Sri Lanka - If Sri Lanka needed any forewarning at all, it came at the R Premadasa Stadium on Friday night. The explosive might of the West Indian batting line-up was on full view in the second semi-final of the ICC World Twenty20 2012, when Australia was swept aside in a flurry of frenzied boundary-hitting that reduced the encounter to one-way traffic.

"Plan was to bat til end of innings"

Colombo, Sri Lanka - Chris Gayle’s primary job as an opener is to go on an all-out attack and give West Indies a flying start but the Jamaican said he enjoyed sharing the strike and batting till the end in Friday’s ICC World T20 semi-final against Australia.

Opening the innings, Gayle faced only 41 balls to remain unbeaten on 75 but West Indies still posted 205 for four - highest score of the tournament - as Marlon Samuels (26), Dwayne Bravo (37) and Kieron Pollard (38) destroyed the Australian attack.
