Defending Champions West Indies kept their Men’s T20 World Cup semi-final hopes alive with a tense three-run win over Bangladesh in Sharjah.
Chasing 143 to win, Bangladesh needed 13 from the final over and worked that down to four from the final ball.
Captain Mahmudullah missed though and Bangladesh suffered a third straight loss to be all-but eliminated.
Earlier West Indies limped to 48-3 from 10 overs before making 142-7 thanks to Nicholas Pooran’s 40.
Bangladesh could still make the last four if one of England or Australia, who meet tomorrow, win all five of their group games, and then other results leave the other five teams all on four points.
Net run-rate would then decide the second semi-finalist, but with Bangladesh’s currently -1.069 it is extremely unlikely they’ll be able to progress.
