Twenty 20 World Champions

Twenty 20 World Champions

Just landed back in the UK with the West Indies Team - as Twenty 20 World Champions!

What an amazing feeling to have won the competition. Wonderful team performances throughout the four weeks. Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels were marvellous with the bat and Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree spun us to success.

It was a privilege to be involved with all the players and Support Staff and great to see everyone's hard work rewarded with a trophy. 

Throughout the tournament, the Sri Lankan people were wonderfully hospitable. They were gracious in defeat, even when it was their beloved home nation that we beat in Sunday night's final. 

Many smiling faces and helpful hands greeted us throughout the journey. Pleasant, friendly people. 

Sri Lanka is a beautiful country. Winning there was a dream come true

Well done everyone!
