ICC World Twenty20 - Final

Sri Lanka v West Indies

West Indies won by 36 runs

3.1

Kulasekara to Samuels, FOUR, width, on a good length and enough width for Marlon to free his arms, slams that past a diving extra cover for a boundary, relief for the batsmen

West Indies 6/1   MN Samuels 5* (7b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 1.1-0-5-0

14.4

BMAJ Mendis to Samuels, FOUR, goes again and gets it in the gap at cow corner, dragged it slightly but effective

West Indies 85/3   MN Samuels 58* (47b 2x4 4x6)   BMAJ Mendis 1.4-0-18-0

16.3

Malinga to Samuels, FOUR, again, Malinga just missed the length, wide of off stump too, Samuels reaches across and carves it wide of third man for four, rocketed to the rope

West Indies 95/5   MN Samuels 65* (52b 3x4 4x6)   SL Malinga 2.3-0-31-0

18.2

Malinga to Sammy, FOUR, another great yorker, dug out and it flies to long leg for four, very lucky but more runs off Malinga

West Indies 117/6   DJG Sammy 7* (6b 1x4)   SL Malinga 3.2-0-49-0

19.2

Kulasekara to Sammy, FOUR, swung into the same region, this is far better timing and finds the gap between long on and deep midwicket

West Indies 128/6   DJG Sammy 17* (11b 2x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.2-0-13-0

19.6

Kulasekara to Sammy, FOUR, full ball, cracked down the ground and this goes all the way for four

West Indies 137/6   DJG Sammy 26* (15b 3x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 3-0-22-0
