    12.1 caught at point, that is a body blow to Sri Lanka! Mahela played the reverse pull but the ball was on the shorter side and he top edged it straight to point. That D-L par score is going to climb now. It looked like the drizzle was playing on Mahela's mind 60/4
    1.1 the off stump has gone cartwheeling towards the keeper, gloom on the face of Sri Lankan fans, what a ball, landed on the off, short of a good length and nipped away just a hint to beat his defense and take out off stump 6/1
    9.3 Pollard takes a good low catch at deep midwicket, Sanga appeared to have handled it well, made room and Badree followed him, short and he pulled it well but found the fielder, Pollard kept his calm, bent low and took it well inches from the ground 48/2
    10.4 bowled him! The pressure's got to Mathews. After three dot balls, when he moved towards leg and tried to play through the off, Mathews went towards the off side, got down on one knee and tried to scoop over short fine leg. The line was on middle and leg from Sammy and once Mathews missed, he was a goner 51/3
    12.3 Perera drives to long off and Mendis has been run out after a misfield I think! Sri Lanka are crumbling here. The batsman decided to take on Bravo's arm after he failed to pick the ball up cleanly. Bravo recovered well though and fired the throw to Narine, who collected and broke the stumps. Mendis dived but in vain 61/5
    13.1 another run out! Ramdin has run out Perera! The ball hit the pad and rolled close on the leg side, Perera set off for a leg bye. Ramdin was quick to scamper to his right, collect the ball and nail the stumps at the bowler's end with a direct hit. Perera was well short. Samuels was standing in the middle of the pitch after following through and was actually asking Ramdin not to throw. The ball zipped past his feet and on to the stumps 64/6
    14.3 caught at wide long on! Thirimanne tried to slog it for six but mis-timed the shot, Charles was in position and he took the catch easily. Look at Sammy celebrate, he's ecstatic. Gayle and his captain are busting out the Gangnam 69/7
    16.3 caught at deep cover! Kulasekara backs away and slaps a slightly shorter ball towards deep cover, where Badree comes running in from the boundary and holds on. That has to be that 96/8
    18.4 that's it, West Indies are the World Twenty20 champions. Malinga slogs the ball high towards long-on, where Bravo settles under the catch and sprints towards his team-mates. There's gangnam all over the outfield, Ramdin is cartwheeling, sort of, West Indies are champions! There's going to be such a party in their hotel tonight 101/10
    17.5 Bravo begins to dance after catching Mendis at deep midwicket. He tried to slog for six but didn't hit it anywhere near the boundary. And look at that celebration. It looks like several West Indian players are dusting off Samuels' clothes. Such joy 100/9
