Fayaz Ansari drowned, according to reports from the West Indies on Friday evening (June 21). Ansari is believed to have drowned while bathing in a hotel swimming pool.

The T20 World Cup nears its conclusion

South Africa and England have already qualified for the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2024. England defeated the USA to book their spot in the knockouts, while South Africa ousted co-hosts West Indies in a thrilling encounter.

Currently, the Super 8 stage is underway, with only two matches remaining. The first of these two matches will be played between India and Australia at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, St. Lucia.

The match is extremely important since it is a do-or-die game for Australia. Meanwhile, India is nicely positioned but cannot afford a slip-up because they have yet to secure their qualification.

The final Super 8 match will be played between Afghanistan and Bangladesh. This game is extremely critical because Afghanistan must win in order to advance to the semi-finals. It is a wonderful opportunity for Afghanistan, who upset Australia in their previous match to secure a historic victory.
