Pakistan set up Windies decider for semis spot

Updated: Sunday, 30 Mar 2014 21:09

Ahmed Shehzad registered Pakistan's first 20-over century as his side thrashed hosts Bangladesh by 50 runs and confirmed Australia's exit from the World Twenty20.

Shehzad carried his bat for 111 not out, including 10 boundaries and five sixes, as Pakistan posted 190 for five – a score that proved well beyond the Tigers, whose 140 for seven meant they registered a third straight defeat in the Super 10 stage.

Shehzad's powerful 62-ball knock, as well as three wickets for Umar Gul, teed up a straight shootout for the semi-finals between Pakistan and West Indies in their final group game on Tuesday.

Shehzad's knock spanned the entirety of the Pakistan innings, the 22-year-old facing the first ball and the last.
