ICC World Twenty20 - Final

Sri Lanka v West Indies

West Indies won by 36 runs

11.2

Dananjaya to Bravo, SIX, finally a big shot, swung away from a full length on the stumps, gets it over midwicket, was a googly but Bravo took it full enough and timed it perfectly

West Indies 45/2   DJ Bravo 14* (12b 1x6)   A Dananjaya 1.2-0-10-0

12.2

Malinga to Samuels, SIX, full length on the leg stump, doesn't quite get this in the hole and Samuels steps outside leg stump and whacks it into the stands over midwicket

West Indies 55/2   MN Samuels 32* (38b 1x4 1x6)   SL Malinga 1.2-0-11-0

12.3

Malinga to Samuels, SIX, six more, this time over extra cover, if Malinga doesn't get it spot it he can disappear, and again it was a half-volley, the front leg was cleared and a clean-as-a-whistle strike ensued

West Indies 61/2   MN Samuels 38* (39b 1x4 2x6)   SL Malinga 1.3-0-17-0

Malinga to Samuels, SIX, clear the front leg and once again, when Malinga misses his length he goes far and this is smashes over long on

West Indies 69/2   MN Samuels 45* (41b 1x4 3x6)   SL Malinga 2-0-25-0

14.3

BMAJ Mendis to Samuels, SIX, down the wicket and timed perfectly into the stands, lovely strike again and he's trying to rescue his side here, 50 for him now

West Indies 81/3   MN Samuels 54* (46b 1x4 4x6)   BMAJ Mendis 1.3-0-14-0

16.4

Malinga to Samuels, SIX, short now, swung at again, comes off the toe of the back, he was a little late on the hook but sails over the rope

West Indies 101/5   MN Samuels 71* (53b 3x4 5x6)   SL Malinga 2.4-0-37-0

16.5

Malinga to Samuels, SIX, oh my days this has travelled a ridiculously long distance, full ball on the stumps and, well, it has gone 108 metres, what a strike

West Indies 107/5   MN Samuels 77* (54b 3x4 6x6)   SL Malinga 2.5-0-43-0
