Thunderstorm helps West Indies qualify for World Cup 2019

ICC World Cup Qualifiers West Indies Beat Scotland By 5 Runs To Qualify For 2019 World Cup

The two-time World Cup winners were bowled out for just 198 batting first, but rain forced an early finish with the game in the balance and Scotland on 125/5 with 14.4 overs remaining.

After a break in play due to rainfall and then a wet outfield, the umpires made a decision to call off the match, thus, handing West Indies a five-run victory and a ticket to England.

"I'm extremely pleased", Holder said.

West Indies have snuck through to next year's Cricket World Cup by beating Scotland by a narrow six-run margin on Duckworth-Lewis as rain washed away Scottish hopes.

Put in, Windies found the going tough after Chris Gayle's first-ball duck. At that point, Scotland were five runs behind the DLS par score and no further play meant that they were on their way home. The guys are gutted upstairs. "It's hard to comprehend after all the hard work we've done". Evin Lewis and Marlon Samuels both scored half centuries, scoring 66 and 51 respectively.

The unsafe Chris Gayle, who announced his return to worldwide cricket with the intention of helping his nation qualify for the World Cup, was out to the very first ball of the match as Safyaan Sharif produced a beauty to have the big-hitting left-hander caught behind to spark big celebrations.

West Indies won the first two editions of the Cricket World Cup in 1975 and 1979 during its former glory years, but the team tumbled down the one-day global rankings recently, forcing it to play in the qualifiers.
