Gayle helps West Indies end Cricket World Cup with a win

The youngster who idolises Kumar Sangakkara added that he was disappointed as he did not score a century and hopes that he will score a ton in future. "It makes me very happy". "Kumar Sangakkara is always in mind and my thoughts when I am batting out there", Ikram was quoted as saying by cricketworldcup.com.

"His ability to rotate strike and find a boundary when needed, that is what made him a world class batsman".

West Indies produced a defiant display to beat bottom side Afghanistan by 23 runs in the World Cup at Headingley.

Tendulkar had scored the runs at the age of 18 years and 318 days but Ali Khil managed to break the record on Thursday by scoring 86 runs at the age of 18 years and 278 days. The catches found the hands of outfielders and Afghanistan were denied a first victory in the tournament despite a spirited knock from Asghar Afghan.

West Indies' Chris Gayle holds the ball as he leaves the ground after their win over Afghanistan in the Cricket World Cup match at Headingley in Leeds, England, today. "Hopefully, in the games ahead I will score a hundred for Afghanistan", he said.

"That has given me a lot of confidence and I will go home and work really hard on my game".

Afghanistan were all out for 288 in exactly 50 overs - their highest score in the World Cup - to finish their campaign with nine defeats in as many matches, denying their West Indian coach Phil Simmons a winning send-off. However, they gave a lot of teams, including India, a run for their money and made sure they can not be considered as minnows in world cricket.
