ICC World Cup highlights: Clinical India eliminate West Indies to inch towards semis

Updated : 2019-06-28 07:18:29

Two-time champions India stood on the cusp of securing a spot in the Cricket World Cup semi-finals after they stretched their unbeaten run in the tournament with a clinical 125-run victory against West Indies that eliminated the Caribbeans on Thursday. Opting to bat first, India's middle order did not exactly cover themselves in glory but skipper Virat Kohli's elegant 72 and Mahendra Singh Dhoni's laboured 56 not out helped them to a competitive 268-7 at Old Trafford. Mohammed Shami and his bowling colleagues then returned to skittle out West Indies for 143 in 34.2 overs.
