Commentary

West Indies won by 6 wkts | Australia Vs West Indies Live Score, 23rd T20 Match, Group 2

Well, plenty of emotions going around in the roller-coaster of a match. Australia will be disconsolate, but West Indies will be thrilled to bits. India will take on Bangladesh in the second match of the day. Change tabs and join us for all the action. For now, cheers and bye..
Sammy (MoM): 'Our team was up for this game. It was a great effort. I think they played well. A couple of bowlers like Narine and Santokie bowled economically. Chris and Smith gave us a good start upfront. Chris wanted to stay till the end. It was good to see Faulkner bowl the last over. Chris has not been scoring at the rate he usually has been scoring but we were pumped up for this game. You would have seen the celebrations.'
Bailey: 'Another good game of cricket but we were at the wrong side of it. I would have taken 178 but we did not bat well. We lost too may wickets. I hope one goes to hand when Sammy swings the bat hard. Coming in at the back end, with those short boundaries was difficult. Those guys are big hitters of the ball. Doug did a good job for us.'
West Indies seem to have vented their emotions during the celebrations. Gayle gestured towards Faulkner on camera, the players celebrated as though they had won the T20 Cup. There was plenty of talk going into the match from the Australians, the defending champions have shut them up in the best way possible.
The celebrations are continuing and might go all night. Gayle has started the gangnam, he is also furiously gesturing towards the camera. Sammy threw his bat away, so did Bravo. The rest of the team are delirious in joy, Australia slump to their 2nd straight loss, they were one of the top favourites going into the tournament. Gayle started the run riot in the only way he can, he was well supported by Dwayne Smith and Lendl Simmons. Australia struck back and looked to have the upper hand towards the final overs. Tell that to Sammy and Bravo, they were simply stunning towards the end. Starc lost his line completely and Faulkner failed to defend 12 runs from the final over. Is this the end for Australia? They now have to simply win both their last two matches and then hope for the best in terms of net run-rate. West Indies go on top of the table, although they have played one extra match.
End of over 20, 18 runs (. . 6 6 6 )
WI: 179/4
Darren Sammy - 34(13) This over: 18 runs
Dwayne Bravo - 27(12) This over: 0 runs
James Faulkner
(3.4 - 0 - 27 - 0)
19.4 James Faulkner to Darren Sammy 6
SIX, Sammy runs away in delight after striking the winning blow. He is still celebrating and is mobbed around by the rest of the team-mates. This was full and on the stumps, no last over heroics from Faulkner, Sammy gets forward and drills it back over the bowler's head, he knew it was going only one way. Sammy threw his bat away and ran in celebration, Dwayne Bravo joined him in the party, Gayle rushed in from the dug-out, it is one huge party out in the middle
30 runs for Darren Sammy
19.3 James Faulkner to Darren Sammy 6
SIX, massive blow, will this win it for WI? Faulkner loses his yorker, turns out to be a low full toss, Sammy clubs it towards long off, just about clears the man at long off for a maximum
19.2 James Faulkner to Darren Sammy 0
no run, excellent yorker from Faulkner, right up in the block-hole, Sammy just about gets his bat down in time
19.1 James Faulkner to Darren Sammy 0
no run, good start from Faulkner, fires it full and on Sammy's pads, he was bending his knees and is way too early, the ball rolls off the pads towards short fine
James Faulkner [3.0-0-15-0] is back into the attack
All 4 fielders up on the off-side, long off is in though
12 needed from the last over. Faulkner will bowl it. Will he turn the hero for Australia? Or will West Indies cross the line?
End of over 19, 19 runs (6 2 4 2 4 1 )
WI: 167/4
Darren Sammy - 22(9) This over: 19 runs
Dwayne Bravo - 27(12) This over: 0 runs
Mitchell Starc
(4.0 - 0 - 50 - 2)
18.6 Mitchell Starc to Darren Sammy 1
1 run, that was another freebie from Starc, full toss and well outside off, drilled down to long on for a single
Starc changes to round the wicket, no back to over the wicket
18.5 Mitchell Starc to Darren Sammy 4
FOUR, this is poor bowling from Starc, keeps it full and wide outside off, Sammy made room, reaches out for the drive and slices it over backward point for a boundary, already 18 runs from the over
