Congratulations West Indies, for that brave effort and win against the spirited Englishmen! Wishes to both the men and women cricket teams from the Caribbean. Having supported England in the final, the last four heart-breaking sixes are going to haunt me tonight!
England have shown breathtakingly beautiful game in the past two weeks. Their thumping run chase against South Africa at Wankhade made me fell for them! India were out in the semi finals and the obvious choice of mine was England to support! Well played by both the teams in the final. The better, if not the best, has won finally!
I could not write much about the other matches, meanwhile. Well, India lost it, first in mind and then in field in the semi-final tie against the Windies, the new Champions. It was a match India must have won under all circumstances, which they lost in lieu of the fighting West Indian players in the middle. New Zealand does it again, lost in the semi-final after putting up fantastic shown in the league matches. Hoping to see New Zealand and South Africa winning the World Cup!
Stokes is stroked in a heart-wrenching fashion! Heart warming speech by the teary eyed Darren Sammy, the winning captain tonight. Great memories this T20 world cup has given me after a long time in cricket.
Signing off for now! Looking forward for IPL, though not too much!
