Afghanistan stun Windies
NAGPUR – West Indies will face India in the World Twenty20 last four after losing to Afghanistan by six runs in their final Super 10 stage match at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium yesterday, while England will play New Zealand in the other semi-final.
Afghanistan, who lost the toss and were sent in, rode an unbeaten 48 off 40 balls by Najibullah Zadran to post 123-7 in Nagpur and held their nerve to register their first win in Group One and ruin their opponents’ 100 per cent record.
West Indies had already qualified for the semi-finals and still finished top of the group ahead of England with a superior net run rate despite the defeat. (Reuters)
