Pakistan beat WI by 10 Wickets, enter World cup Semifinal

Captain Shahid Afridi scalped four wickets and Mohammad Hafeez excelled with an all-round display as Pakistan spanked a spineless West Indies by 10 wickets to storm in the semifinal of the cricket World Cup in Mirpur on Wednesday. Pakistan bundled out the Caribbeans for a paltry 112 in just 43.3 overs and then overhauled the target with 29.1 overs to spare in a hugely-lopsided quarterfinal clash at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium. Chasing just 113 to win, Mohammad Hafeez (61) and Kamran Akmal (47) toyed with the West Indies attack and stitched a 125-ball 113-run opening partnership to wrap up the match very easily and move into the semi-finals after a gap of 12 years. The 1992 Champions Pakistan will now face the winner of the second quarterfinal between India and Australia at Ahmedabad in the semifinals.
