West Indies did it after 30 years this Sunday evening today - they beat hosts Sri Lanka by a big margin of 36 runs to win the ICC T20I Cricket World Cup played at Colombo.
Although West Indies started with a debacle, with two of its ace peners going home for just three runs, Charles for duck and Gayle for 3, the team did manage a comfortable target of 138 to the hosts Islanders. Coming to bat, Sri Lanka was loser on every account and could hardly manage 101 runs before being sent back to pavillion right in front of the sad and morose home crowd and the president.
The victory won by the West Indies bring back joy to the Caribbeans who waited for this honour for good about thirty years.
Congratulations West Indies!!
