0

West Indies have beaten India by seven wickets in the semi-final of the World Twenty20 competition.

Earlier, batting first, India put up a respectable total of 192 runs in their quota of 20 overs for the loss of 2 wickets.

Virat Kohli, who has been in splendid form all throughout the T20 tournament, once again played a brilliant knock on Thursday.

He remained unbeaten at 89 in just 47 balls.

West Indies started very badly as they lost Chris Gayle early on. But Lendl Simmons, who played an innings of unbeaten 82 in 51 balls, single-handedly pulled the match out of India’s hands.

England and West Indies will now meet in the final at Eden Gardens on 3 April.

India: 192/2 in 20 overs (Virat Kohli 89 not out, Rohit Sharma 43, Ajinkya Rahane 40; Samuel Badree 1/26).

West Indies:196/3 in 19.4 overs (Lendl Simmons, 82 not out, Andre Russel, 43 not out, Virat Kohli 1/15)
