Afghanistan will face West Indies in the final’s of the ICC World Cup Qualifiers 2018. The match will be played at the Harare Sports Club, Harare. Both teams played in the first match of the Super Sixes stage as well, with Afghanistan narrowly clinching the match by 3 wickets.

The live telecast of Afghanistan and West Indies Final can be watched on Star Select HD 2 and Star Select 2. The live streaming of the same will be available on hotstar.com.

Afghanistan’s road to the final has been anything but a cakewalk. They lost their first three matches in the group stage to Scotland, Hong Kong and Zimbabwe. They bounced back and knocked over Nepal and West Indies. They are lucky to be playing in the final, it is more to do with others losing than Afghanistan winning.

West Indies, however have had a different story. They were only beaten once in the tournament, that too by Afghanistan. Rain and a poor umpiring decision helped them in their match against Scotland that saw them push through to the final.
