The West Indies beat Afghanistan by 23 runs at Headingley in Leeds in the last match for both teams for the 2019 Cricket World Cup Tournament.
The Windies finished the 2019 World Cup with 5 points in total. They are tied on points with South Africa, another team which had a disappointing campaign.
Afghanistan finished with 0 points on the board, the only team to have not won any match in this World Cup.
Shai Hope made the most of an early reprieve in the first innings to score 77 runs and Evin Lewis and Nicholas Pooran also struck half-centuries to power West Indies to 311-6.
Chris Gayle managed only seven in his final World Cup appearance and Hope could also have gone early but Rashid Khan dropped a sitter when the batsman was on five. Captain Jason Holder clobbered four sixes in his 45 runs off 34 balls and Dawlat Zadran claimed 2-73 for Afghanistan, who were sloppy on the field.
The star of the mammoth chase was young Ikram Ali Khil, whose 86 runs was the highest World Cup score by anybody aged 18 or less. Coming on after the early wicket of skipper Gulbadin Naib with the score at 5/1, he had taken the score to 189/2 when he went out in the 36th over.
Rahmat Shah, Najibullah Zadran and Asghar Afghan were also looking good as the Afghan side looked to be playing with more freedom than before.
Kemar Roach and Carlos Brathwaite took most of the Afghanistan wickets between them.
