Right then. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Do join us for the first semifinal between India and Sri Lanka tomorrow. Until then, it's goodbye from all of us at the commentaty desk. Cheers

Shimron Hetmyer: Wonderful result for us, feels good to be through to the semifinals. We just stuck to our plans, executed what we worked on at practice. Probably yes, the toss was a good one to lose, our bowlers did superbly well to take early wickets.

Zeeshan Malik: We're disappointed. I thought we set a few total despite a poor start. Our plan was to get around 235, because we knew our bowlers were capable of defending it. Credit to West Indies for chasing it down aggressively.

So, our semifinals line-up looks like this. India will take on Sri Lanka tomorrow in Mirpur, while Bangladesh will play West Indies on Thursday.

Jay: "So, it won't be all Asian!!!! Hard Luck Pakistan! You fought well!"

Umair Masood is the Player of the Match

On many other days, Umair Masood's century would have ended in a winning cause. Have to feel for him. Tremendous show of character to help Pakistan recover from 57 for 5. Their spinners made a match of it, but the early impetus provided by Pope and Hetmyer allowed Imlach to keep eating into the deficit and eventually secure victory.

The celebrations have begun in the West Indies camp. The entire team runs onto the field to greet the two batsmen. Shimron Hetmyer walks up to the coach to give him a big bear hug. Shows how much it means to them. Pakistan, on the other hand, have are walking off disappointed, but they've been extremely sporting to walk up to their West Indies couterparts to congratulate them.

Hayatullah to Paul, FOUR runs

those are the winning runs. This was short and wide outside off, he opens the face of the bat and plays the fine delicate dab between point and short third man

Hayatullah to Paul, no run

cramped for room, squeezed to cover as he looks to cut

Hayatullah to Paul, no run

shapes for a cut, too full, beaten

Hayatullah to Paul, SIX runs

sees the flight and deposits that back over the bowler's head, clears the ropes and the advertising hoardings. Lands near the West Indies dug out

Hayatullah to Paul, no run

angled to the point fielder

Hayatullah to Paul, FOUR runs

on the shorter side, makes room to free his arms and slaps it past the diving point fielder, looks like got a bit of hand on it but so fierce was the hit that it wasn't enough to prevent the boundary

Shadab to Goolie, no run

driven to mid-off this time

Shadab to Goolie, FOUR runs

that's a freebie. Full toss on middle, hammered back past the bowler, easy pickings.

Shadab to Paul, 1 run

skids onto middle from wide of the crease, somehow gets a thick inside edge towards midwicket

Shadab to Goolie, 1 run

mistimes a pull to the fielder running in from wide long-on, no need to play shots like those. He would have definitely been nervous as the ball was swirling in the air

Shadab to Paul, 1 run

swung across the line, mistimes the slog to deep midwicket

Shadab to Goolie, 1 run

worked with the spin to long on

Time for drinks. If I was the West Indies coach, I'd tell the batsmen the job isn't done yet

Ahmad Shafiq to Paul, FOUR runs

walks across the stumps and sweeps it across the line into the deep backward square leg boundary. Picked his spot, knew what he was doing

Ahmad Shafiq to Goolie, 1 run

sharp turn back into off, dabbed wide of the wicketkeeper

Ahmad Shafiq to Goolie, no run

swept hard, straight to square leg

Ahmad Shafiq to Goolie, 2 runs

excellent work by the deep midwicket fielder, throwing himself to his left to pull it off inches from the boundary

Ahmad Shafiq to Goolie, 1 wide

looks to help it past short fine leg, the ball spun back a bit too much, nice take by the wicketkeeper

Ahmad Shafiq to Goolie, no run

gets forward and smothers the spin

Ahmad Shafiq to Goolie, 2 runs

sees the flight and decides to go after that one, lofts it over the infield, the man at deep midwicket comes around to cut that off
