New Delhi. The first match of the Super 8 of T20 World Cup 2024 was played between West Indies and South Africa on 24 June. South Africa registered a spectacular victory in this match. After this defeat, West Indies is out of T20 World Cup 2024. Now their journey has ended here. After the match, captain Powell said that we may not have won the World Cup. But we have played some good cricket in the last 12 months.

West Indies captain Rovman Powell said, “Credit to the boys for fighting till the end. As a batting group, this is a performance we would like to forget, we did not bat well in the middle overs. We lost wickets in quick succession and that always breaks the back of the batting team. It was a commendable effort, the boys believed they could defend 135 runs.”

Powell further said, “We have not won the World Cup nor reached the semi-finals. But we have played some good cricket in the last 12 months. There is a buzz again among the supporters about West Indies cricket and this is something we carry with us. We appreciate the support we have received on social media.”

Talking about the match, South Africa won the toss and decided to bowl first. Which proved beneficial for them. The West Indies team could score only 135 runs while batting first.
