Oct. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Chris Gayle’s 75 runs pushed West Indies to 205-4 in its cricket World Twenty20 semifinal against Australia in Sri Lanka.

Gayle faced 41 balls and had 6 sixes and 4 fours, combining with Dwayne Bravo for 83 runs. Bravo was out for 37, while Kieron Pollard was caught on 38 off the last ball of the 20 overs.

West Indies, which won the toss and elected to bat in Colombo, hit 14 sixes and 13 fours. Xavier Doherty took the brunt of the batting, taking 1-48, while Shane Watson conceded 35 runs without claiming a wicket.

The winner will face Sri Lanka, which beat Pakistan yesterday, in the final in two days. The World Twenty20, generally held every two years, is the championship of the game’s shortest form. The winners will pick up $1 million in prize money.
