The West Indies defeated Sri Lanka today to win the coveted T20 International trophy. Congratulations to the West Indies players, and cricket fans. Special thanks to Jamaican Prime Minister and others who petitioned the board to get Chris Gayle back on the team. Without Gayle throughout, and huge contributions from countryman Marlon Samuels, and spinner Sunil Narine, the West Indies stood no chance.
In the preliminary rounds, the West Indies lost their credibility after being destroyed by Australia and Sri Lanka. It was poetic justice that they demolished Australia in the semi-finals and then dispatched Sri Lanka in the finals.
