West Indies crash UAE to make it in the quarter finals

Asking UAE to bat first after winning the toss Windies bowlers toppled the UAE top order taking full advantage of the conditions. UAE were struggling at 46/6. It was difficult to recover from that situation but a century run partnership between Amjad Javed and Nasir Aziz helped UAE with a total of 175.

In a must win game to qualify for the knockout stage, West Indies were in without the injured Gayle. Johnson Charles made his opportunity count scoring a fifty. Though Samules and Russell failed to reach the double figure, Johnathan Carter and Denesh Ramdin made sure Windies chased down the total in 30.3 overs.

West Indies are now in line to face tournament co-hosts New Zealand at Wellington in a March 21 quarter-final.
