West Indians hard-hitting opener Chris Gayle was dismissed for mere five by fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, after being bowled by him, against fellow former champions and hosts India, in the second semi-final of the ongoing ICC World T20 2016 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Thursday. It was a full toss from Bumrah as he kept the ball straight and almost a yorker length with Gayle in confusion whether to flick it on the leg side or play straight, as he goes for the shot late, but the ball hitss the off stump. Currently, West Indies are 14 for the loss of a wicket in two overs, with Johnson Charles on one and Marlon Samuels on eight. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs West Indies, ICC World T20 2016, 2nd Semi-Final match at Mumbai

Sammy made a couple of changes in the side, with Chris Gayle and Lendl Simmons coming in for Evin Lewis and Andre Fletcher, while Indian skipper MS Dhoni too made a couple of changes by bringing in Ajinkya Rahane and Manish Pandey for Shikhar Dhawan and Yuvraj Singh. FULL CRICKET UPDATES: India vs West Indies, ICC World T20 2016, 2nd Semi-Final match at Mumbai
