West Indies lost to Afghanistan in their last match by 3 Wickets. With Shai Hope’s 43 and Marlon San Samuels’ 36, West Indies scored 197. Which was always doable for Afghanistan. Jason Holder was once again exceptional with the ball, but even after bowling 10 overs and taking 3 wickets, he could not stop Afghanistan, as the target was achieved losing 7 wickets.
Zimbabwe against Ireland, in the last match apart from Sikandar Raza’s 69, the other highest score was 25. They were only able to put 211 on the board, and nobody fancied their chances at the halfway mark. Then Tendai Chisoro and Graeme Cremer came, and wreaked havoc.
