It(***)s the business end of the World Twenty20 and the first team to qualify for the semi-finals are the West Indies, who knocked New Zealand out in a dramatic Super Over [Reuters]
Both teams reached 139 after 40 overs at Pallekele stadium, sending New Zealand to another Super Over decider. The Kiwis scored 17 off six balls with Ross Taylor hitting a six off Marlon Samuels [GETTY]
However the Windies breezed through with a ball to spare as Samuels smashed the winning six off Tim Southee [EPA]
The second team to qualify from the Super Eights group one are hosts Sri Lanka who beat England by 19 runs, sending the defending champions crashing out [EPA]
Sri Lanka made 169-6 in their 20 overs before man-of-the-match Lasith Malinga took a career best 5-31 to restrict England to 150-9 in their overs [EPA]
Australia were the next team to qualify for the Super Eights after their final group game against Pakistan. Despite a nervy 32-run loss they qualified by virtue of their net run-rate, knocking a winless South Africa out of the tournament [EPA]
It was Australia(***)s first loss of the tournament and for a while it looked like they would struggle to reach the 112 runs they needed. The result left India needing a big win over South Africa to stop Pakistan(***)s progress into the semis [EPA]
But it was not to be. India needed to restrict South Africa to 121 after making 152-6, but the already-eliminated Proteas were bowled out for 151 on the penultimate ball, dashing Indian dreams [Reuters]
In front of a raucous home crowd Sri Lanka booked their spot in the World Twenty20 final with a 16-run-victory over Pakistan in Colombo [EPA]
And they will meet the West Indies in the Sunday(***)s final after Chris Gayle(***)s unbeaten 75 off 41 balls inspired a 74-run demolition of favourites Australia [EPA]
At the beginning of the tournament many fancied the West Indies to win it and that is exactly what they did. Marlon Samuels spurred his side on to victory against the hosts Sri Lanka. And then the dancing began! [Reuters]
