On a strip where Gayle and Co made batting look easy, the Australians were all at sea. Both Watson and Warner tried to play shots which can't be played when the ball keeps low while Mike Hussey was consumed by the slowness of the track.
David Hussey was rusty and others simply didn't have it in them to put up a fight. Earlier, Gayle hit five fours and half a dozen of towering sixes as West Indies made a mockery of Aussie attack.
Marlon Samuels with 26, Dwayne Bravo with a 31-ball-37 and last but not the least Kieron Pollard (38, 15 balls, 3x4, 3x6) also matched Gayle stroke for stroke to help West Indies cross the 200-mark.
