West Indies Beat India To Qualify For Final

Lendl Simmons hit an unbeaten 83 to guide West Indies to a seven-wicket victory against hosts India in the second semi-final of the World Twenty20 at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday. West Indies chased down India’s score of 192-2 with two balls to spare to set up a final with England at Eden Gardens on Sunday.

After Virat Kohli’s stellar 89* took India to a challenging total of 192/2, Indian bowlers gave the hosts a great start to reduce West Indies to 19/2. However, Lendl Simmons and Johnson Charles had some other ideas. The duo hit Indian bowlers for cleaners as Wankhede Stadium gasped.

However, on the fifth ball of the seventh over Simmons, batting at 18, thick-edged Ashwin’s delivery to Jasprit Bumrah at short third-man, who took a stunner. Wankhede erupted in joy, but got silenced a minute later as it was adjudged that Ashwi had over-stepped.

Simmons then went on to complete his half-century in 35 balls as West Indies galloped towards the target. Another opportunity came on the final ball of the 15th over by Pandya, as Simmons was caught by Ashwin at cover. Simmons went on to make 82 not out (off 51 balls) and take West Indies into the final with a stunning win.
