West Indies stomped all over Pakistan today to reach the semis of the T20 World Cup. Pakistan were in control after restricting the defending champs to 84/5 from the first 15 overs, then it all fell apart. West Indies pummelled them to the tune of 82 from the last five and 59 from the last three overs.
West Indies had many heroes today. Bravo and Sammy disfigured the typically reliable Umar Gul and Saeed Ajmal, while Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine laid further claim to being the best spin duo in the shortest format. They were aided by Denesh Ramdin who facilitated four stumpings to run through the middle of Pakistan’s batting. Set 167 to win, Pakistan folded for a paltry 82.
On to the last four where West Indies will face Sri Lanka in a rematch of the last T20 World Cup final. South Africa and India will contest the other semi-final.
