NAGPUR – West Indies nearly made a mess of a simple run chase, but recovered in time to pull off a nervy three-wicket win over South Africa with two balls to spare, and move into the semi-finals of the Twenty20 World Cup here yesterday.

In pursuit of a target of 123 on a slow pitch at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, West Indies were propelled by Man-Of-The-Match Marlon Samuels who top-scored with a vital 43 from 44 deliveries, while opener Johnson Charles stroked 32 from 35 balls.

The Caribbean side were on top of the game at 66 for two in the 12th over, but lost five wickets for 47 runs in the space of 46 balls, to decline to 113 for seven in the penultimate over. (CMC)
