The West Indies team defeated Bangladesh by seven wickets in the second semi-final of the Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Dhaka on Thursday. They will meet favourites India in the final on Sunday, who beat Sri Lanka by 97 runs in the first semi-final.
Batting first, the Bangladesh shook off a middle-over collapse to put up a respectable 226 on the board, with Mehedi Hasan playing a captain's knock of 60. In the chase, the West Indies looked on their way to a win, but lost quick wickets as they neared their target. The Caribbean side was ultimately shepherded home by Shamar Springer, who remained not out on 59.
Doing so, the West Indies entered their second ever final at the Under-19 World Cup. Their first was in 2004, when they lost to Pakistan.
