St. Lucia:  West Indies faced almost certain exit from the Twenty20 World Cup after making just 105 all out against Australia in their final Super Eights match in St Lucia on Tuesday.

Australia and Sri Lanka will qualify from the group unless West Indies produce a highly unlikely turnaround after the break.

A passionate capacity crowd at Beausejour Stadium were hoping for a real fight from the home side but they crumbled after skipper Chris Gayle was clean bowled by Dirk Nannes with the third delivery of the game.

Shivnarine Chanderpau and Ramnaresh Sarwan put on 34, the highest partnership in the innings, but even though Sarwan stuck around it was largely to witness wickets tumbling at the other end.

Brief scores:

West Indies: 105, 19 overs (S Smith 3-20)

Australia: 109-4, 16.2 overs

Australia won by six wickets.
