Welcome to the live updates of the second semifinal between Australia and West Indies.
That's all from us here. Join us on Sunday for the final between Sri Lanka and West Indies. For now its goodbye !
A great victory for the Windies. An entertaining first half of the match. An otherwise boring chase was lit up by Bailey's wonderful batting. But once Warner, Hussey and Watson fell cheaply, it was always a big ask. Windies have reached their first final since the 2006 champions trophy. They will now meet Sri Lanka in Sunday's final.
Starc swings and misses, the ball clips the top of the off stump.
And there ends the match. Starc is bowled by Rampaul. West Indies win by 74 runs

Wicket ! Hogg stumped by Ramdin off Narine.. nine down.. 121 for nine

Has Bailey done enough to keep the captaincy? Hasn't had a great tournament...
14th over: A great over for the Windies. Got the wickets of both Bailey and Cummins. Bailey was out trying to clear the deep midwicket boundary. Cummins was taken at extra cover.

11th over: Great over for Australia. 25 runs off Andre Russell. Bailey scores 21 of those. Two sixers and two fours. He could have been caught at long off but for Rampaul's midjudgement. Nonetheless, superb batting by the captain. 89 for six

Have West Indies scored enough here? A 15-ball 38 by Pollard at the end has steered Windies to 205. Gayle faced 41 balls and scored 75 runs.. Watson and Warner hold the key.. It seems that Dwayne Bravo is unfit to bowl..So bowler short.. Catch us for the chase in a while....
