Windies stun India

The West Indies joined the Kiwis in reaching the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy tournament by beating India by three wickets in Ahmedabad, India. I think this was the most entertaining match so far in this tournament.

The Windies did well to keep India's haul at 223 and I think India never recovered from the moment they were 69 for three. The West Indies showed that their beating of Australia was no fluke and on this form they could see themselves in the final once again.

The West Indies have Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan though to thank after both hit half centuries to stun the vociferous Indian crowd. But the highlight of the match for me was towards the end of the West Indies innings when the Windies needed just ten runs from two overs.

Now the match between Australia and India on Sunday has suddenly become more like a final with either team needing a win to stay in the tournament. India will have the crowd support behind them and against Australia they will every bit of it.

On the same token Englandís tournament is now over and their last match against the West Indies will just be playing for pride.
