West Indies beat South Africa by three wickets in Nagpur on Friday to qualify for the semi-finals of the World Twenty20.

Electing to field, the West Indies bowlers restricted South Africa to 122 for eight before they rode on batsman Marlon Samuels' 44 to achieve the target with two balls to spare.

The win saw West Indies stay at the top of the Group One table with three wins from as many matches while South Africa's chances of advancing dimmed after two losses.
