West Indies qualified for the 2019 World Cup in England after rain played spoilsport and dashed Scotland's hopes of making it to the finals.After a break in play due to rainfall and then a wet outfield, the umpires decided to call off the match, thus, handing West Indies a five-run victory and a ticket to England.

They now have 8 points from five games and are the first to qualify for the World Cup from the qualifiers.Put into bat, West Indies were off to a horrific start after losing Chris Gayle on the first ball of the match. And it got worse when Shai Hope was removed in the third over for a six-ball duck. But, opener Evin Lewis and Marlon Samuels then steadied the ship for the Windies.
Lewis and Samuels stitched a 121-run stand for the third Chris Baker Jersey wicket before http://www.redskinsofficialonlineshop.com/Dustin_Hopkins_Jersey_Cheap Bradley Wheal removed Lewis for a well made 87-ball 66. West Indies needed another partnership but one wicket gave way to another and Samuels fell for 51 just 19 balls later -- forcing the two-time champions to be five down.
They failed to put a partnership together since then and kept losing wickets at regular intervals and finally were bowled out for 198 from 48.4 overs.Safyaan Sharif and Wheal picked up three wickets each while Michael Leask had two to his name. Alasdair Evans and Richie Berrington grabbed Womens Nick Novak Jersey a wicket apiece.
Coming in to chase, Scotland were handed the same fate by the West Indies bowlers. They lost both their openers inside the first four overs and could never recover. Michael Jones was the next man to go and Scotland were tottering at 25/3 from 6.1 overs.
Calum MacLeod and Richie Berrington then weathered the storm and put on a 42-run stand but it was broken just when it was looking to get dangerous by Ashley Nurse. MacLeod hit one straight back at Nurse to hand them a way back into the game. Berrington and George Munsey however, were quick to cut out the danger and stitched another solid stand for the fourth-wicket.
But Berrington fell for 33 and Scotland were five down with 93 runs to win.The incoming Michael Leask settled in well with Munsey and were ticking the scoredcard along well until rain lashed out at Harare.
After a brief break, the game started to lose overs and according to DLS method Scotland were Ben McLemore Jersey five runs behind the http://www.officialsaintsfootballshop.com/YOUTH+DELVIN+BREAUX+JERSEY required target at that point. Hopes of a game were still there but the rain got heavier and the match was abandoned, thus, crushing Scotland's hopes of making it to the final.
Zimbabwe and UAE play each other next and that will be followed by a match between Ireland and Afghanistan. All three sides barring UAE have a chance of making it to the final. cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys
