    Right then, that's all from us for now. Head over here for the developing match report, and we'll be back in about 20 minutes or so for build-up to to India v Australia (essentially a showdown for a semi-final place, if you didn't know). Plus we'll have coverage of England Women v Pakistan Women, with Charlotte Edwards's side needing a win to be sure of their place in the knockout stages.

    See you soon.

    Justin Wilson: Brilliant result for Afghanistan. Always a joy to see results like that. Cracking tournament.

    West Indies captain Darren Sammy: "We're disappointed, but we're not going to let it dampen our spirits. They played well and we need to find a way to chase down those small totals.

    "We have a semi-final and we're looking forward to that. We've done the most important part, which is get through to the last four.

    "We were just looking to win the match. It would have been good to win all four, but we understand that this was the only one we could afford to lose in terms of winning the trophy."

    Afghanistan captain Asghar Stanikzai: "Winning this match very important, we needed one win in this tournament after missing two good chances to get one. Today the guys played really well. We thought we might be short 15 runs or so, but we still bowled very well and fielded very well, Najib especially."

    The captains are down having a natter now, Stanikzai's speaking at about a million miles an hour, but you can't blame him really can you?

  7. Women's World Twenty20 - Windies win

    West Indies (114-8) beat India (111-9) by three runs

    West Indies' women have beaten India to qualify for the semi-finals.

    It means England need to beat Pakistan this afternoon to be sure of qualification - as a defeat would leave them risking elimination on net run-rate.

    What a brilliant victory for Afghanistan. Hugely deserved not just for today but for their spirited display against England, and for giving Sri Lanka a big scare in their opening game, too.

    How many of you saw this one coming against the form team though, even without the universe boss?

    PD31: This is why the "tier 2" teams HAVE to have a large presence in major tournaments.

    Jarleth Eaton: How many wake up calls do the ICC need before they let 14 teams compete at the 2019 World Cup? Upsets like this won't happen otherwise!

    Joe Giacomelli: Get in Afghanistan! Should be a massive wake up call for the ICC. Cricket needs to grow and include the associate nations.

  10. Women's World Twenty20

    A run-out in the last over means India need five from two balls to beat West Indies. Or four for a super over...

    Kevin James Riley: What a win for Afghanistan - the magic of sport.

    Brian Kilbride: Cricket along with Afghanistan is the winner here. Well deserved Afghanistan.

  15. Women's World Twenty20

    India need 10 off six balls to beat West Indies

    Plenty of drama in the women's game too. Jhulan Goswami has hit a six, been run out for 25, and India need 10 from the last over to win - and send England through to the semi-finals.

    Chris Gayle (rested today by West Indies) is down there on the pitch joining in the celebrations with the Afghani players. Lovely to see.

    So no clean sweep for West Indies but they still finish top of the group, meaning England finish second and will play New Zealand in the semi-finals, as we thought.

    But this is all about Afghanistan. This, the biggest win in their cricketing history, will take some celebrating.

    Ex-South Africa captain

    "Afghanistan go off in style. They have bought energy and a new dimension to this World T20."


    Eight runs off the last ball, it was never going to happen now was it? 

    A single takes West Indies to 117-8. 

    Afghanistan win by six runs. Cue the crotch-pumping celebrations.
