The potent Afghanistan have finally created an upset by defeating the strongest team in their group West Indies at Nagpur on Sunday. West Indies were favourites going into this match and very few may have thought that Afghanistan can pull off a stunner in this game.

Batting first Afghanistan scored 123 runs in their 20 overs on a pitch which was difficult to bat on. They somehow managed a modest score on the board after getting off to a rocky start. A target of 124 for a team like West Indies is a cake walk on any given day but on this occasion it wasn’t to be.

Afghanistani bowlers did a commendable job with the ball in restricting West Indies to a score of 117 in 20 overs. Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan were the pick of the bowlers as the duo picked two wickets each. Nabi bowled a fantastic final over where West Indies needed 10 and the bowler managed to defend it.

It’s a huge setback for a team like West Indies who have already qualified for the semi-finals. Cricket fraternity expressed their thoughts over this game on Twitter, check out some best of the tweets here:
