""Obviously very disappointed," says Darren Sammy, "but there's no doubt we're not going to let this dampen ours spirits.
"We just need to find a way to chase down those small totals. This was the only game we could afford to lose in terms of winning the cup. We have two more games, so we have to regroup and come back strongly."
My last match for a while - it's been a fun stint, and perhaps I'll see you around again some time. I'm Will Luke, thanks for joining us this evening, and don't forget about India v Australia (as if) - coming up very shortly. T'ra.
Najibullah is named Player of the Match but injured himself in that incredible final catch, so he's in the changing rooms.
6.20pm A lovely moment just now as Gayle joins in the celebrations with Afghanistan and Shahzad. That might be my moment of the tournament. Shahzad demands a selfie, and eventually the entire team crowd round Gayle in front of the cameras. I'm sure we'll have the shot for you shortly. Cricket is a wonderful sport.
And there's Inzi! Broad smile on his face. A wonderful victory in so many ways. They've shown what Associate cricketers can bring to a global tournament, and to do it in their last match is quite telling, too. Difficult for administrators to ignore a win like this, or the inevitable clamour that there will be by former players to give Afghanistan and co more matches against Full Members.
Shahzad leads the celebrations as Fletcher trudges off disconsolate. Afghanistan's last match of the tournament and what an effort - and what celebrations! They're all dancing, singing "Champions! Champions!"
8 from 1 ( :~ )
They've almost done it!!
Fletcher only has one leg. His other is injured - bust his hamstring. But it's up to him to try and get West Indies 9 from 2
Fletcher is back. He's injured, but he's back. 10 from 3
That was quite remarkable. To take that, on the run, under that pressure - what a snaffle.
10 from 4. This is ridiculous!
Around the wicket
Here we go!
Ten needed off the final over. They shouldn't have got themselves into this position, though Afghanistan have been quite excellent in the field. Rashid the stand-out.
11 from 7
17 from 8. Who wants this? Who wants it?
It's all happening. 17 from 9
"West Indies batsmen out to prove they don't panic, even when they should!" Good bants, Steve the Bajan.
Yowks. They need a four, or more
25 from 12 balls!
Oh, Afghanistan. You little beauties. I am, of course, neutral, but it's impossible not to enjoy this
