In a nail biting game in Nagpur, the minnow Afghanisthan defeated the mighty Westindies by six runs. With three straight wins and making to semi final, westindies batsmen bowed to the budding Afghan bowlers. Earlier, West Indies captain Darren Sammy won the toss and elected to bowl against Afghanistan in their last Super 10 Group 1 match of the ICC World Twenty20 . After putting into bat, Afghanistan, riding on, Najibullah Zadran’s 48 scored a respectable 123 for 7. For West Indies, Samuel Badree (3 for 14) and Andre Russell (2 for 23) were the pick of the bowlers.
West Indies, already through to the semifinals, have rested swashbuckling batsman Chris Gayle from this inconsequential match.
