West Indies have won the toss and have chosen to bowl first!

Here comes the toss from Mumbai!

The key players for the game will see two of the most feared batsmen in the T20 game come up against each other in Gayle and the master of run-chases Virat Kohli. Gayle is a massive player for the West Indies at the top of the order and they will want to make sure he is fit for the game after missing the last game with an injury. Gayle has already smashed a hundred in Mumbai this tournament and he will be looking to do the same again when it matters for his team. Kohli for India is a superstar as he is one of the big reasons the team is in the semi-final. Kohli has hit two half-centuries this tournament against Pakistan and Australia in games that mattered the most to the team. Kohli averages 53.55 in T20's which is astonishing and he will be hoping to have his say in a big way in the semi-final.

So far in the tournament, there have been three matches played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai with 1,205 runs scored at an average of 201 runs per innings. The pitch has been a belter in these three games that have seen very high scoring games but it will be interesting to see if it will be the same for the semi-final match. The West Indies have played once at this venue already this tournament against England while this will be India's first game at the venue.

India and West Indies have played each other three times in the World T20 in the past with the West Indies leading 2-1. The first meeting took place in the 2009 tournament at the Super 8's stage when the West Indies won the game by seven wickets. The second meeting took place a year later in the 2010 tournament were the Windies won the game also this time by 14 runs. The last meeting between the sides then came in the last tournament in Bangladesh in 2014 where India came out on top by seven wickets in a group stage match. The sides though have never met in a knockout match so this will be an interesting match to see who will hold their nerve to get through to the final. 

The hosts India, on the other hand, began their competition with a defeat to New Zealand by 47 runs to leave them on the back foot after the first game. In their second game, they came up against fierce rivals Pakistan in a game that means so much to both countries, and it was India who came out on top in a rain-affected game by six wickets. Bangladesh were the opponents in the third game and it was a game that produced so much drama with India winning the game from a losing position by one run to set up a winner takes all tie against Australia in their final match. In their final game then against the Aussies, India won the game by six wickets in a game that was emotional for everyone in India as they would now see their team play a semi-final at home.

The West Indies began the competition in a group with England, Sri Lanka, South Africa and Afghanistan and finished at the top with three wins from their four games. In their first game, they came up against England and started perfectly as they won the game by six wickets thanks to a Chris Gayle masterclass scoring 100 of 48 balls to give them the win. The second game saw them play defending champions Sri Lanka and they made it two wins from two winning the game by seven wickets. In their third game, they played South Africa knowing that a win would mean they would mean they would qualify for the semi-finals with one game to spare and they got over the line in a close game by three wickets. Their final game was against qualifiers Afghanistan where they fell to a surprise defeat by six runs but even with the loss, they finished top of the group as they had a better net run rate than England.

This match is the second semi-final and it sees two teams come face to face who love this form of the game. India came into the tournament as favourites while you just know the West Indies will turn up in the shortest format of the game. Both teams though didn't have it all their own way in the Super 10's as both lost one game each but in semi-finals form goes out the window and it's all about how you play on the day.
