(MENAFN -Khaleej Times) india now need one more win from their remaining two matches against australia and hosts bangladesh to advance to the semi-finals

India’s spinners wreaked havoc on the west indies batting to rout the defending champions by seven wickets in the world twenty20 super-10 group two match in dhaka on sunday.

The west indies sent in to bat managed only 129-7 as leg-spinner amit mishra claimed two for 18 in four overs ravindra jadeja took three wickets and ravichandran ashwin picked up one.

India strolled past the modest target with two deliveries to spare as virat kohli made 54 off 41 balls and rohit sharma remained unbeaten on a fluent 62.

The pair put on 106 for the second wicket after left-hander shikhar dhawan was trapped leg-before by spinner samuel badree off the fifth ball of the innings.

Mahendra singh dhoni’s men who beat arch-rivals pakistan on friday now need one more win from their remaining two matches against australia and hosts bngladesh to advance to the semi-finals.

The bowlers kept the normally free-stroking west indies batsmen in check allowing them just 74 runs by the 15th over for the loss of four wickets.

The hard-hitting chris gayle dropped before he had scored and then again on 19 made a 33-ball 34 with two sixes and a four before he was run out in the 13th over.

Mishra had marlon samuels stumped by dhoni and claimed dwayne bravo leg-before off successive balls in the 15th over to open up the lower order.

Lendl simmons who was caught off a jadeja no-ball in the 18th over celebrated the let-off by smashing the next ball for a six.

Simmons made 27 off 22 balls as jadeja conceded three sixes in the final over.

Earlier on sunday pakistan bounced back from their loss to india to defeat australia by 16 runs.

Two teams from the group will advance to the semi-finals.

The other group comprises sri lanka south africa england new zealand and the netherlands.
