South Africa batted first and posted 122/8 in 20 overs. In reply, Kagiso Rabada gave what could have been a brilliant start to Proteas team by dismissing Chris Gayle in the first over.
Wickets kept tumbling at regular intervals but it was Marlon Samuels who held his nerve and scored 44 runs.
He was later sent back in the hut by Chris Morris.
The match went into the last over where West Indies required 9 runs.
Carlos Brathwaite smashed Rabada for a six and later hit the winning runs for his team. West Indies have registered a berth in the semi-final. Here’s what everyone has to say about West Indies’ victory.

Most of us had India, South Africa and Australia making the semi-final before the tournament began. Looks like only one of them can!

Too close for comfort but a win is win. Shot selection was poor at critical times. Surely a topic for convo as WI prepare for their semis.
