Thanks for joining us here at Sportskeeda. Do join us for the live coverage of the match between Bangladesh and Pakistan tomorrow. 
Winning captain, Jason Holder : It's good to get over the line. We have had some close encounters in this World Cup. So it's really good to finish well. Obviously batsmen stepped up today. Evin and Shai got a good partnership going. At the back end, myself and Pooran were able to finish well. 300 was a par score I felt on the pitch. They had a good partnership but we stayed strong and came through in the end. I think inconsistency let us down. Our fielding has a lot to improve. The bowlers did well, credit to each of them. Batting was not that consistent and that also needs to step up. It's hard to say that Chris Gayle is playing his last World Cup. He's been an excellent ambassador for West Indies cricket. Would also like to congratulate Ian Gould the umpire who is officiating his last game on Saturday.
Losing captain, Gulbadin Naib: At one point, we looked comfortable at the wicket. Khil and Rahmat played really well. In the end, chasing 312 isn't that easy. So I am really happy with the fight. Khil is an under 19 boy, he looked his class today. Not just him, we have a lot of young talent back home as well. If we can groom them well, it will be nice for us. I learnt a lot in this tournament. Fitness is an issue for us, boys are struggling and it's something we need to work on. I think the World Cup has been a good learning curve for all of us.
Shai Hope is the man of the match.
Here's what he has to say, Shai Hope: It's important we got that score on the board. It's not where we would've liked it to be but it's a learning experience and lot to learn from this. It's nice to finish on a high and hopefully I can carry on this form for the next series as well.
Ikram Ali, Rahmat Shah and Asghar Afghan tried their best but they could not take Afghanistan over the line. West Indies end their World Cup campaign with a memorable win while Afghanistan will leave England with zero wins to their name.
