West Indies edge past South Africa to seal World T20 semi-final slot

Carlos Brathwaite and Denesh Ramdin steered West Indies into the World Twenty20 semi-finals with one Group One game to spare after a dramatic three-wicket victory over South Africa in Nagpur.

With nine runs needed from the final over to complete a chase of 123, Brathwaite took his side to the brink by crashing Kagiso Rabada’s second ball for six before Ramdin finished the job with a cut that was dropped at short third man by Hashim Amla.

The nervy finish never looked likely when West Indies ended the 13th over on 84 for three with Marlon Samuels and Dwayne Bravo at the crease. But after Bravo departed Imran Tahir struck twice in successive balls in the 17th over and Samuels lost his head in the penultimate over to leave 10 runs needed from seven balls.
