LUCKNOW – West Indies were floored by an exceptional spell from seamer Karim Janat and crashed to a 41-run defeat to Afghanistan in the second Twenty20 international yesterday, turning today’s final match into the critical series decider.

Chasing a target of 148 at the Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Stadium, West Indies were pegged back early and limped to 106 for eight from their allotted overs.

Only wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin, who laboured 27 balls over an unbeaten 24, managed to pass 20, as West Indies never recovered after finding themselves meandering on 45 for four at the half-way stage.

Janat, in his first game of the series, proved sensational with a spell of five for 11 from his four overs.  (CMC)
