West Indies and Afghanistan will have a crack at each other as the two of the few unbeaten sides are set to play the last group game of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet in St Lucia. 

With qualification already sealed and no tussle for the placings, this clash holds less importance but the personnel of the teams reckon this one a crucial one. Windies skipper Rovman Powell and Afghanistan coach Jonathan Trott attended the pre-match press conference and stressed on words like 'momentum' and 'pride' before the Super Eight stage rolls in. 

The clash is set to be held at the ground named after Windies head coach and two-time T20 World Cup winning skipper Daren Sammy. Here is all you need to know about the venue of the clash.
