LONDON – West Indies, undermined by left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja, crashed to an eight-wicket defeat against India in their ICC Champions Trophy match yesterday.
Jadeja took five for 36 as the West Indies were restricted to 233 for nine despite a gutsy half-century from Darren Sammy that followed an explosive half-century from opener Johnson Charles.
Shikhar Dhawan hit his second century in a row as India reached their target in just 39.1 overs. The result eliminated Pakistan from the tournament.
West Indies will now go head to head with South Africa on Friday for the second semi-final place from the group. (CMC/HG)
