No one could have believed it to expect four mighty sixes from a tailender to win the ICC T20 World Cup for the West Indies tonight in India.
Playing against India, the West Indians routed the English team and restricted them for a mere 155 runs. But what awaited for the Sammy's 11 was something very dreadful as at every ball it seemed that were losing the chase.
Batsmen like Gayle (4) and Simmons (0) were big disappointing for the West Indies. It was Samuels who brought them back to game but he alone was insufficient to chase the target. And then came Brathwaite, a bowler, a attainder who was to make history for the West Indies. His four mighty sixes changed the complexion of the game and won the match - rather just clutched it out from falling into the English hands.
What a day for West Indies: Their women earlier won the T20 World Cup today and the men followed the suit too and won the match for their country.
Many congratulations West Indies - you really deserved it.
