Ashraful puts paid to West Indies
Friday 14 September 2007
West Indies were knocked out of the Twenty20 World Cup yesterday when Bangladesh roared to victory by six wickets.
Bangladesh limited West Indies to 164 for 8 before Mohammad Ashraful's sparkling 61 off 27 balls ensured they reached the target with two overs to spare.
Next year's Twenty20 domestic county finalists will represent England in India for a £1m jackpot.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India yesterday announced details of a lucrative eight-team tournament, which will include both finalists from England alongside those from India, Australia and South Africa, to be held on the subcontinent next October. In future years the event will be expanded to 16 teams.
