Defending champions West Indies secured a World Twenty20 semi-final against Sri Lanka on Thursday with a magnificent 84-run win over Pakistan in Mirpur.

In a shoot-out to decide who went through to the last four, West Indies hammered 82 off the last five overs.
Dwayne Bravo fired four sixes in his 46 from 26 balls and put on 71 in 34 balls with Darren Sammy, who hit an unbeaten 42 off 20, as the Windies posted 166-6.
