The Legendary Dark Caribbean Wind has started to blow again, as West Indies has blown away Sri Lank in the World T20 Finale at Columbo. This is the first World Title for Windies since 1979 and their first ICC Title since 2004.
West Indies' First World Twenty20 win has stunned the home crowd, as they pulled off one of the most amazing turnarounds in Twenty20 history, especially given the stage. Marlon Samuels played simply the best Twenty20 International Innings ever seen when West Indies were down and almost out.
West Indies had been 14 for 1 after Power Plays and 32 for 2 after 10 overs, the fourth-worst scores at these points in the history of Twenty20 Internationals. They even took 17 balls to score the first run off the bat. Yet so breathtaking was Samuels' assault, never mind the wickets falling around him, that Sri Lanka were too stunned to respond.
