commentary

That's a helluva pretty trophy. And one thing's for sure, Afghanistan players know how to pose in audibles. Everyone's buzzing behind that trophy! But what a story, what a stunning story of resurgence. Losing the first three games to almost be dumped out of the tournament, to having other results go your way whilst being busy at winning every game that you've on your hands, has to be a part of Afghanistan's folklore. We're in the middle of a great story, people. Savour it; Afghanistan are headed for more showstopping bouts. I, Pratyush Sinha, and my colleagues, Akshay Maanay, Varun Dikshit and Sreenivas, will be there to bring that to you. Have a good Sunday, ta-ta!

Stanikzai - captain, Afghanistan: "We are very happy because this was our dream. This is not just our dream, this is our Afghanistan's dream. We beat them (Windies) in the practice game and the Super Sixes too. And it was big news because Windies are a full-member team. I feel good now. Afghanistan people wanted the cup, that's why I wanted to play in the game. I took the risk [talking about his health and comeback] but now it's good. [Goes on to thank his countrymen in Pashto/Dari]"

Afghanistan players get their medallions now. Stanikzai will get it last and have a word.

Holder - captain, Windies: "Congratulations to Afghanistan on a very good tournament, especially after coming back from where they were. We didn't get over the line and I'm not really proud of that. Nobody put their hand up. Was a long tournament in a short space of time. Lot of guys were carrying niggles at the start of the tournament, so credit to them for continuing. Proud of my guys. Disappointed to not win the final but we played outstanding cricket in this tournament. Want to thank the whole group. Hopefully we can pick ourselves up."

Time for Windies players to collect their medallions.

Sikandar Raza - Player of the Tournament: "Certainly not happy at all. This trophy is a painful reminder of the dreams that we had, of the 15 million dreams we crushed. When I started playing cricket, I thought it was to unite the country, players of different backgrounds, everyone who comes together to play this beautiful sport. Unfortunately that's not going to happen. It's a tough pill to swallow. This trophy will also serve as a reminder for Peter Borren and the Dutch players, for Kyle Coetzer and his Scottish players, for Mustafa and his UAE players, and all the countries who couldn't make it to the WC. Congrats to Nepal on the ODI status. This trophy will also serve as a painful reminder for the two of our brother countries who lost their ODI status. I wish them luck. Not much to say; going through a lot of emotions."

Shahzad - Player of the Match: "My form came back at the right time, when my team needed it. My team played good cricket and now we're champions. Proud of the guys. I know my strengths. We have the World No. 1 spinner, that's why I said to Windies that 'we are coming.' I always enjoy my batting. The wicket was better for batting in the second innings. My job is to hit the ball and people's job is to watch the ball, so I don't watch the ball when I hit it. Windies players, I love them, they are good human beings. I have a lot of friends in the team."

Afghanistan team is being aptly led by Shahzad into the celebrations too. They're grooving to Bravo's 'Champion' song. We'll be back with the presentations soon.

04:10pm local: Has to be a big day in Afghanistan's cricketing history. They started the day as a WC participant, and are ending the day with a title and a statement, that they won't be the designated pushovers in England next year. Mujeeb's four wickets meant that the battle was half-won in the innings break. Shahzad then brisked to 84, that must be said was strewn with theatrical poses, and that made the job even easier. Gayle's off-spin bowling might be the only positive Windies take back from this game. But hey, they've a WC berth too.

Gayle to Nabi, SIX, Afghanistan win the WC Qualifiers, 2018. "It's a comeback of miraculous proportions," is how Ian Bishop announces it on air. Nabi finishes the chase with the third consecutive six off Gayle. Stretches on his front foot and lofts it hard over long-off

Gayle to Mohammad Shahzad, out Caught by Holder!! Mohammad Shahzad's looking to the heavens, seemingly asking "why?" Chris Gayle can't believe it either. Does the Champion jig, too. Very, very slow and oodles of flight from Gayle here. Has been right through the over. Mohammad Shahzad comes down the track, the ball's still in its flight, and he ends up stomping it straight to mid-off. Mohammad Shahzad c Holder b Gayle 84(93) [4s-11 6s-2]

Drinks are on the field now. This passage of play has only belonged to one man, Mohammad Shahzad. He has been on fire.He has scored around 70% runs of the team total and has played some audacious shots. He has entertained one and all with his champion dance and cheeky things too. For Windies, Keemo Paul has bowled well. He has been nippy and has beaten Afghan bastmen for pace. Holder would want him to take couple of wickets quickly.
