George Bailey: 'Australia were outplayed'

Australia captain George Bailey admits that his side were "outplayed" in their T20 World Cup semi-final defeat to West Indies.

Australia captain George Bailey has offered no excuses for his side's comprehensive defeat to West Indies in the Twenty20 World Cup semi-finals.

The Aussies were beaten by 74 runs in Colombo on Friday as the Windies booked their place in Sunday's final against hosts Sri Lanka.

"In hindsight you can do things differently, but the fact is that we just got outplayed," said Bailey.

"There are no excuses. The best team absolutely won the game tonight. There is a gap between your best and worst cricket, and we did not play good cricket at all."

Bailey averaged 42 with the bat over the course of his side's six matches at the tournament.
