West Indies has overpowered a beleaguered Australian side in their World Twenty20 match on Friday at Dhaka by six wickets, boosted by a Chris Gayle launch pad combined with a late-hitting frenzy by captain Darren Sammy and Dwayne Bravo.

Gayle ran onto the field and starting dancing crazy Gangnam Style, like he did at the Windies' World T20 win in 2012 after Sammy smashed consecutive sixes to send the West Indies into party mode and seal an amazing win with two deliveries to spare.

According to News.com.au, although Australia looked home when young legspinner James Muirhead snared the massive wicket of Gayle, their spin fragility when batting was exposed when they lost their first six wickets to the spin trio of Sunil Narine (2-19), Samuel Badree (2-37) and Marlon Samuels (2-20).

The report mentioned that Gayle (53 off 35 balls) was blasting the ball everywhere and the West Indies were on course to chase down Australia's total when Muirhead, replacing Brad Hogg in the side, was introduced in the 10th over.
