Australia defeated the West Indies by eight wickets to advance to the semifinals of the T20 World Cup in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, led by veteran opener David Warner’s unbeaten 89. Dwyane Bravo and Chris Gayle may have both played their final games in this match, as the left-hander smashed four sixes and nine fours to lead the 158-run chase. Warner was aided by Mitchell Marsh, who smashed a five-four and two sixes in a 32-ball effort before he was dismissed while attempting to score the winning run. A 124-run stand in 75 balls sealed the chase with 23 balls to spare for the pair.

This meant that Australia would have to wait for the outcome of the South Africa-England match before making any decisions. Aaron Finch and the England team have a net run rate of 1.216 after four victories in five games. A convincing win by the Proteas would put an end to their hopes.

With two consecutive boundaries and a six in the third over, the Australian lefthander, who struggled to get going in the recently concluded IPL here and lost his place with Sunrisers Hyderabad, upped the ante.

Skipper Finch (9) was dismissed by Akeal Hosein in the next over, but Warner kept the batting order alive.

It was a run-a-ball equation at the halfway mark — 98 for /1 — as Warner raced to his 20th T20 International half-century in 29 balls as Australia was never in trouble.

While playing with the Windies’ attack, he used his trademark pull, sweep, and switch hits As Australia cruised to victory, Marsh added another half-century to his tally of five in T20Is.

Kieron Pollard’s 31-ball 44 led West Indies to a spirited 157 for seven earlier in the day.

Windies opener Evin Lewis smashed Australia’s Josh Hazlewood for a hat trick of fours en route to a 29-ball score as Australia chose to field in a must-win match. ‘Universe Boss’ Gayle scored nine runs off nine balls in what appeared to be his final appearance for the West Indies, relishing the moment and signing off with a wicket of Shaun Marsh.

As he was returning, he jumped on Marsh’s back and celebrated. The defending champions finally found their groove on a wicket that aided true pace and bounce.

However, Pollard kept the Windies’ innings together, taking three wickets for just five runs.

In addition to Pollard, Shimron Hetmyer (27) and Dwyane Bravo, who made a 12-ball 10 in his final International outing, also contributed.

Andre Russell hit two sixes in the final over to help the Windies to a total of 58 in the final five overs, a total of 18 not out from seven balls.

For Australia, Hazlewood was sensational, returning with 4/39 after being hit for 20 in his first over, rebounding brilliantly.

the two-time world champions West Indies missed out on the ‘Super 12’ qualification for the T20 Cricket World Cup in Australia 2022 after losing to South Africa.

If the Windies lose, they will fall to number nine in the ICC T20 rankings, which means they will not be eligible for direct qualification.

Bravo’s final International innings ended when he was caught at long-on, and it was an emotional match for him.

Gayle gave Bravo an emotional hug in the dugout as Pollard embraced him on his way out, while Russell and others also gave him a standing ovation.

It appeared to be Gayle’s last match. Windies legend Darren Sammy was spotted waving at the camera and raising his bat after he crossed the rope, and he was also seen handing out cricket gears to the fans.

The leg-spinner Adam Zampa had just posted a career-best figure of 5/19 when he dismissed well-set Lewis in the 10th over with a googly that was caught at long-on by Steve Smith.
