Australia vs West Indies at Kennington Oval
Gayle20 blows away Australia in Group C match
June 06, 2009Just a month ago, West Indies skipper Chris Gayle caused a storm when he said said he preferred limited overs games to Test cricket as his side slipped to a series defeat in England. Today he caused another storm, this time with his bat, as he led from the front to thrash Australia by seven wickets in the World Twenty20 Group C opener at the Oval.
Chasing 170 for victory, Gayle hit six sixes and six boundaries, while scoring 88, as he and Andre Fletcher put on 133 in just 69 balls to all but seal victory.
