That brings an end to our coverage from this virtual semifinal - which turned out be an emotional one. Windies are through and Scotland will take some time to recover from this defeat. There's one more spot available and that could be sealed if Zimbabwe beat UAE tomorrow. Ireland and Afghanistan will hope for an opposite result. We'll be back tomorrow for that contest. Do join us. Until then, it's goodbye from Abhinand Raghavendran on behalf of Hariprasad Sadanandan and our scorer Naga. Goodbye!
Holder: Extremely pleased. We've been a through a lot in the last couple of years - hasn't been easy. I think the guys really put up their hands in every single game. The pressure was there in all games. Really pleased to get over the line. Scotland played really good cricket this tournament. Must feel for them. We really want to win this tournament. I thank the Caribbean people for the support throughout. Our true fans stuck with us. We have one more game to play here. We should be thinking about that.
Coetzer: This is emotional. Extremely proud of the effort put in by the boys. We have shown what we are capable of. There were a couple of moments within the last two games that really hurt us. Couple of decisions that didn't go our way. It proved to be costly. Our seam bowling throughout the tournament has been exceptional. Top quality in the competition. WI bowling attack has been brutal. Credit to Jason and his team for getting through. Well done and thanks to our boys. It's been exceptional.
Safyaan Sharif, Man of the Match: (As a bowling group)They were outstanding. They were consistent throughout the tournament. I did a decent job last qualifier as well. The way I've been doing stuff with the ball this year - it's been an improvement. (When asked why the pacers where given short spells) It's just tactical. Everyone's a bit disappointed. That's cricket for you. We'll take the positives.
So, what happened today! Windies were jolted early in the match by Safyaan Sharif, who scalped Gayle and Hope for naught in two overs. A slow-but-steady partnership between Lewis and Samuels stabilized the innings, but they collapsed like a pack of cards losing their last eight wickets for just 75 runs. With 199 to be hunted down for a place in the WC, Scotland lost both their openers inside four overs. That was a major setback for them as captain Koetzer was their best batsman in the tournament. When Michael Jones was removed by Roach, Scotland resorted to a cautious approach. Perhaps, that resulted in them going into a shell as the fourth wicket stand scored 42 runs off 95 balls. Munsey was playing high-risk shots and that was paying off, but the combination of Berrington's wicket and rain derailed their hopes of making it to the WC.
16:38 Local Time, 14:38 GMT, 20:08 IST: "Umpires have called it. Scotland are out," is the latest tweet from Cricket Scotland. No one could have written a more tragic story than this. On the contrary, this result means that Windies are through to the 2019 WC. The two-time World Champions, who couldn't take part in the Champions Trophy, were made to toil hard. After a pretty smooth passage in the group stages, they were beaten by Afghanistan in their opening Super Six encounter. They defeated the hosts in a well-fought encounter and today's match was a must-win game for the Caribbean side. Berrington's decision will be argued for a long time, but it's done and dusted. That's how this harsh tournament has been framed. Scotland should hold their head high the way they have played.
16:34 Local Time, 14:34 GMT, 20:04 IST: "Puddles stretching from the covers to the boundary now. I would be astonished if we get back on. Scotland will miss out on a deserved place at the WC thanks to rain and two atrocious pieces of umpiring. This is, in my opinion, an unmitigated travesty," tweets Bertus de Jong, our correspondent from Harare.
16:19 Local Time, 14:19 GMT, 19:49 IST: tweets: "The rain has got very heavy at Harare Sports Club." We could be in for a long delay. You got to feel for Scotland surely. In the previous game against Ireland, an lbw decision on Andrew Balbirnie went against them and he went onto score a match-winning ton. And today, Berrington was adjudged lbw, which looked like missing leg. There'll be plenty of debates regarding the non-availability of DRS in such a tournament.
16:04 Local Time, 14:04 GMT, 19:34 IST: Well, the umpires have signalled the groundstaff to bring in the covers. My goodness, doesn't look a passing shower. Rain stops play! Windies will be the happier side as Scotland are still 5 runs behind the DLS par score - which is 130 after 35.2 overs. We'll keep you updated.
The rain seems to have gotten heavier. Scotland are currently 7 runs behind the DLS par score.
The DLS par score is 128
Drinks! The equation: Scotland need 87 runs in 102 balls.
A slip in place
Jason Holder [5.0-0-17-1] is back into the attack
Michael Leask, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Nurse to Berrington, THAT'S OUT!! Lbw!!
The required rate is now 5
Kemar Roach [5.0-1-18-2] is back into the attack
Samuels is walking off the field!
Proper first slip in place now, Gayle it is
George Munsey, left handed bat, comes to the crease
Nurse to MacLeod, THAT'S OUT!! Caught&Bowled!!
Carlos Brathwaite [3.0-1-11-0] is back into the attack
Ashley Nurse, right-arm off break, comes into the attack
Nurse is into the action straightaway but is this a bump ball? The soft signal is NOT OUT and the replays show that it clearly is. NOT OUT
Time for some spin. Leask and Sole did well for Scotland, particularly the former who has on fire. Can Nurse replicate it?
Square leg drops back
Quite overcast right now at the Harare Sports Club. Should provide a bit more shape for the seamers
Carlos Brathwaite, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack
Holder is off the field expectedly after the discomfort he was in during the last few overs. Brathwaite leading the side now
Keemo Paul, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack
Holder continues to hobble around, looking seemingly in discomfort. He's still on the field though
Holder seems to be struggling a bit. Not sure what's the reason but he is on his haunches for a bit. After taking a few moments, decides to resume. Doesn't seem 100 percent to me
Richie Berrington, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Roach to Michael Jones, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
Second slip moves to short cover
Calum MacLeod, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Holder to Matthew Cross, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!
Michael Jones, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Roach to Coetzer, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
Jason Holder, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack
The skipper to take the other new ball. He's saved his team quite a few times this tournament. Can he do it today in what is their biggest game?
Matthew Cross and Coetzer are at the crease. Matthew Cross is on strike. Roach will open the attack
