South Africa knock West Indies out in thriller to qualify for ICC Men’s T20 World Cup semifinal

Tabraiz Shamsi’s three-wicket haul combined with a measured knock (29 runs off 27 balls) by Tristan Stubbs helped South Africa clinch a cliffhanger by three wickets (DLS) against West Indies to join England in the semifinals of the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

South Africa’s win has knocked the West Indies out of the tournament and the Proteas now find themselves in the semis alongside England.

Shamsi produced a Player of the Match (POTM) performance and finished with figures of 3/27 to limit the Windies to just 135 in their 20 overs. The left-arm wrist spinner was the pick of all the South African bowlers and the West Indies struggled to get him away.

Roston Chase scored a brilliant half-century (52 off 42 balls) and prevented the co-hosts from getting bundled out cheaply. Chase struck three fours and two sixes during the course of his knock and it allowed the Windies to post a respectable total on the board.
