Afghanistan register shock win over West Indies in World T20

Afghanistan's players led by Mohammad Shahzad(C) celebrate after winning the World T20 cricket tournament match against West Indies at The Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur on March 27, 2016.

Afghanistan have shocked the West Indies by beating them in the last Group 1 match of the World Twenty20 in Nagpur. The underdogs, who were playing for pride after going into the match with no way of qualifying for this week’s semi-finals, won by six runs over the 2012 champions in a thrilling encounter. The West Indies could only manage 117-8, in reply to Afghanistan's score of 123-7. Despite the loss, the West Indies top the group and will play their semi-final match against the winner of tonight’s clash between Australia and India.
