West Indies book place in World Cup

Porterfield has launched a passionate and scathing denunciation of the International Cricket Council (ICC) after his side missed out on a place at the contracted 2019 World Cup.

Afghanistan endured a horrid start to the World Cup Qualifiers - losing their first three games in the group stages - and had all but given up hopes of qualifying for next year's World Cup.

Scotland and Zimbabwe had both suffered defeats in their concluding Super Six matches earlier in the week. One of the best fun zone or fun base that I have actually played in front of.

Afghanistan emerged as the champions of the ICC World Cup Qualifiers after thrashing Windies in the finals by seven wickets. The Rashid Khan-led side got their World Cup ticket by beating Ireland in the final super-six game, which was a virtual knockout.

Aldridge had a career-high 45 points, helping San Antonio overcome Donovan Mitchell's 35-point performance. "He's carrying us. The two-time MVP limped around the court for a bit and was pulled from the game while Muscala attempted his free throws.

A record of six victories against one loss during the tournament would suggest that it was a good outing for the West Indies. It was very hard for me to control. We have the highest respect for them, but at the same time, we will not be overawed by them and will try to win tomorrow. "But my return has helped the spinners as they now feel more comfortable, while Rashid can concentrate on his bowling rather than thinking about game plans".

It was their third win over the West Indies in the past month, and was settled in emphatic style when Mohammed Nabi hit three balls in a row from Chris Gayle for six. Be that as it may, they recovered nicely to beat Zimbabwe (by four wickets) and Scotland (by five runs via the D/L method) in successive matches to finish off the job.

Afghanistan now joins West Indies, along with the top 8 Test-playing nations, among the 10 participants for the ICC World Cup.

With just over a year to go for the 2019 World Cup, the ten teams that will be taking part in the tournament have been confirmed during the ongoing ICC World Cup qualifiers.

The West Indies, but for Evin Lewis, Marlon Samuels, Jason Holder, Kemar Roach, and to an extent Shai Hope, and the rain, would probably have been heading home in disappointment instead of looking forward to England next year.
