West Indies won the 2012 World Twenty20 Cup

Face to chase had 138 hits for West Indies one of the schizophrenic T20 tournament rounds, Sri Lanka could not find a solution to their opponents spinner, at least not likely to pay off in 20 overs. Even Mahela Jayawardene dropped twice, and you do not do in Colombo and get away with it if not superior force.
Keep Calm drummers keep them guessing which way the ball is going, is the modus operandi of Sri Lanka in these places, but Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree West Indies Marlon Samuels had magician himself then gave them an incredible 78 full bowl.
Bare soil, saw spinners dominate in the final of the women who preceded Badree Narine took 3-9 and are 1-24. Jayawardene and Sangakkara rarely Kumar seemed so limited by money.
Asian teams are often overwhelmed by the excitement and some gave the opportunity of the West Indies, Chris Gayle unless burned, was one of five Ajantha Mendis BPN slowly before.
Perhaps Sri Lanka not only with the final who were in the fourth and lost since winning the 1996 World Cup, a tackle. But this time he saw Jayawardene stepping down with immediate effect, T20 captain

It is Indias first major trophy since the 1979 World Cup, won the Champions Trophy in England in 2004, not a real world tournament like the World Cup or.
Current players are probably tired of hearing about the legendary exploits of the great sides Lesser Antilles Viv Richards and Clive Lloyd, but this victory will give them something to be proud generation, Gangnam even if it has to be accompanied by an epidemic of dance.
"It feels very, very good and definitely appreciate this moment," said Darren Sammy, the West Indies captain.
"This is the best time for me in cricket and live every day of our lives. This is for the people of the Caribbean. Want success for some time, if you will benefit from Jamaica to Guyana and we know how to celebrate, for they need a lot of waiters. "
Nobody plays cricket quite like the exuberance of Caribbean sports and those who employ teams of two trainers and a psychologist. But if the mind has declined recently, to stop Darren Sammy, Ottis Gibson and manager Richie Richardson coach and managed to reverse the trend, which should Trophy T20 shoots new progress.
I hope that the Council of the West Indies, they can not go to another rich man like Allen Stanford used cloudy.
"This is definitely a step in the right direction," agreed Sammy. "The belief in the toilet would believe we could compete, believing that we can win games against good teams.
"I hope this is the start of something good for the West Indies team West Indies and the people."
Sammy is a captain in the fear of God, but when they gave thanks to the Almighty, no doubt due to Samuels, after the Jamaican played an outstanding tickets.
As powerful as Gayle, even if not quite the brooding presence, their tickets were one of two halves, a slow frenzy. But when he and Dwayne Bravo were too slow to recover from Gayle was lbw tickets for three in the sixth over Mendis Samuels has done safely and later with a variety of six.
His team was 32-2 after ten credits, seems frozen in the headlights of the secrets and seal Mendis Angelo Mathews biting spin.
But if Samuel is nothing that Gayle long runs are possible if you can hit a long ball and struck learned long way he has done, especially before Lasith Malinga.
Everyone can have an off day, but Malinga is one of the bankers in Sri Lanka, unorthodox fast bowler who can throw with remarkable precision. The funny thing was their tactic.
Gayle has maintained peace with strawberries, tried to block the hole and bowl Samuels was wrong, and he was beaten by three six. Samuels is 21 and her collar was back on 17, going on 19 when he knocked in two sixes and four.
Samuels was in the following courses under cynosure Akila Dananjaya wicket taken, but in a competition where the club was better with his attempt to intimidate Malinga gave Antilles irie belief that happen.
And Narine, Samuel Badree and melon always threatening.

Pakistan Cricket Team will need batsmen to fire against Australia

22 Yard Report: This is the 11th game that will be played at this ground since the tournament officially kicked off. There is only so much work that the curator can do on the surface. So far a good job has been done by keeping it dry and yet not letting it crack too much. Though, as the pitch starts resembling a fifth day Test square, it should aid the spinners more.  Both teams comfortably chased down totals here on Sunday and it will be interesting to see if the toss-winning captain decides to bat first again. There are always chances of rain during this time of the year in Sri Lanka that might play a role in the drama that unfolds.
Game On: From the top of the world to a few feet under the ground, all it takes are a few bad overs and a couple of quick fall of wickets. The in-form Pakistani team went into their game against India as one of the favourites to win the tournament; they have come out of it with the possibility of now being knocked out.
Right from their last win against Pakistan in the UAE, Australia have looked in peerless form. Their top order has been exquisite but their batting has yet to be tested.  Pakistan’s best chance to win will be if they are able to get through the top four Australian batsmen in relatively quick time. Pakistani spinners have held a slight psychological edge against the Aussies batsmen in recent times and will look to exploit it further.
Mohammad Hafeez was being touted as Pakistan’s next captain in all forms of the game after a successful series win versus Australia and a good start to the World T20 campaign. Things can take a u-turn very fast as they often do in Pakistan; the critics have been very fast to highlight Hafeez’s incapacity of handling pressure and hiding face from adversary. His slow start to the innings on Sunday set the tone for the rest of the evening and he did not appear with the ball until the 13th over, by the time the match was all but over.
Hafeez will have to turn up with an inspirational performance and lead from the front. If he manages to lead his team to the semi-finals, few will talk about his nervous 13 runs that took an agonising 25 balls against bitter rivals India.
Australia are already through to the next stage unless they lose this game by a huge margin and India beat South Africa in equally convincing fashion. In contrast, Pakistan’s road to the next round is a bit more complicated and depends on the result of both games played on Tuesday. The other game is between India and South Africa.
Scenario 1, Pakistan and South Africa win: Pakistan and Australia will go through by virtue of more points.
Scenario 2, Pakistan and India win: Whichever team wins with a bigger margin is likely to go through with a higher Net Run Rate (NRR).
Scenario 3, Australia and South Africa win: Pakistan, South Africa and India will be tied on points and it will boil down to who has a better NRR. At the moment Pakistan is marginally ahead, followed by India and South Africa.
Scenario 4, Australia and India win: Australia and India will go through by virtue of more points.
South Africa and India will have a defined target that they will have to achieve in order to go through to the next stage. If Pakistan lose, South Africa will know what margin they need to beat India by, in order to qualify and India will be aware of the losing leverage they have in order to go through. If Pakistan wins, India will again have a calculated target for qualification; the number of overs they need to chase a total or the runs they have to defend in order to qualify. Earlier this year, Virat Kohli led India to a stunning qualifying game in similar circumstances in the summer Down Under.
Game Changer: If this were a high profile football competition, both games on Tuesday would have probably been played at the same time in order to nullify any advantage to the team playing second. In this case South Africa and India will benefit by playing second. Pakistan might win and still not qualify or can lose and yet play the semi-finals. Either way, their fate will be decided in the game that they can only be bystanders in, while India and South Africa will have the luxury to fight it out with defined targets.
Pre-Game Talk: “I think we all knew exactly what conditions we were going to have. The conditions in Dubai were brilliant practice because what we had there was very similar to what we have here,” Shane Watson knows he is playing the same opposition in similar conditions he did last month.
“We need to rethink a few things, that’s for sure, and that will be done,” Dav Whatmore signals a possible change in strategy.
Last XI Fielded Australians:  David Warner, Shane Watson, Mike Hussey, Cameron White, George Bailey, Glenn Maxwell,  Matthew Wade (wk),  Brad Hogg, Pat Cummins,  Mitchell Starc,  Xavier Doherty
Last XI Fielded Pakistanis:  Mohammad Hafeez, Imran Nazir, Nasir Jamshed, Kamran Akmal (wk), Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Yasir Arafat, Raza Hasan, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal.
Possible Changes: Australia played with two specialist spinners in their previous game with excellent results. With the pitch getting older, they are likely to field the same team. Pakistan has not chopped and changed too much in the tournament but a lot of questions will be asked if they return home with Abdul Razak not having played a single game. In a team full of all-rounders, the veteran cricketer has found it difficult to get a spot for himself.
Final Words:  Australians are seldom complacent and are expected to play the game as hard as they normally do. Pakistan will have to go into this match without worrying about the match to follow. In a high-pressure game with chances of elimination, Pakistan cannot depend on the likes of Umar Gul to wallop sixes and will need one of their impact batsmen to fire.
Match: Pakistan vs Australia, 22nd match of the ICC World Twenty20.
Venue: R Premadasa Cricket Stadium, Colombo, Sri Lanka
Date and Time: Tuesday, October 2, 2012. 13:00 PST / 10:00 GMT
Overall Rivalry: Leading; Pakistan 6 wins Australia 4 wins
Momentum in the last five matches: Dominance; Pakistan 4 wins, Australia 1 win
Weather Report: Partly cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and rain. High of 30 Celsius is expected. Winds will range from15 to 20 mph with a 20% chance of rain.

Anuja Patil Rasanara Parwin and also won two wickets each giving away 15 and 16 runs each in their spell.

But still, with his show failure batting bowling performance in the final analysis irrelevant.

Notation seemed simple and even if the Pakistani pace duo Sadia Yousuf (0/19) and Qanita Jalil (9.1) does not claim too many windows, held off the scoring pace.

Despite India as four to 51 years, the team never seemed to not be able to pursue the goal. Jhulan In fact, the top scorer with 21-ball 24, sought victory in India for five after 83 spinner Nothing destroys you in the middle to capture three for 12.

But disturbing caused his dismissal from Bismah Maroof further collapse in the hopes of an Indian woman kept fluctuating.
