Windies miss out


Share post:

CARDIFF – South Africa squeezed into the semi-finals of the Champions Trophy and eliminated West Indies after their make-or-break Group B match finished as a tie on the Duckworth/Lewis method when rain brought an early end to play at Sophia Gardens.
Needing a victory to go through, the West Indies were on target to win as they chased 231 off a maximum 31 overs when Kieron Pollard was caught in the deep to put the team on 190 for six after 26.1 overs.
With the rain coming down harder, the umpires immediately took the players off and the match was later abandoned, leaving West Indies agonizingly short.
The teams shared a point from the match, but South Africa have a superior net run rate over the three games and progress to the last four with group winner India.
