You have got to love the way the West Indians play their cricket. They go out there and they play with absolute freedom, flair and express themselves the way they know best..
Start of the 20th over and I was a little sad that West Indies might just have run out of steam to cross the finish line! It all changed when Carlos Brathwaite hit that first six and I was very confident after the second one went flying into the stands and we know the rest.
West Indies had won the WorldT20 2016, I was thrilled to bits. They deserved every bit of it.
Sammy’s words said it all…
“For today, I’m going to celebrate with these 15 men and coaching staff. I don’t know when I’m going to be playing with these guys again because we don’t get selected for one-day cricket. We don’t know when we’re going to be playing T20. So this win, I want to thank you my team, I want to thank you coaching staff … everybody know West Indies are champion!”
Though as an Indian, I wished that India could have been that team which lifted the World Cup, but we were defeated by our Caribbean counterparts in the semifinals. And while many fans would’ve hated the fact that the Windies went through, I like to believe that they totally deserved it.
Way to go boys! It would be a shame if we don’t get to see these players play again.
Congratulations West Indies!
