Calypso Cricket....finally !!!

Calypso music did take over.....the world witnessed Gangnam.....Gayle  combining push ups with dance steps, birthday boy Bravo doing sensational hip movements, Samuels, Sammy, Pollard, Ramdin et all, screaming & dancing in childlike fervor as they emerged the new World T20 Champions......there has been something refreshingly boisterous about this Windies outfit.....it was worth the wait.....& watch.

All of this looked an improbable dream an hour into the play, as the West Indies looked dead & dusted, struggling for life at 32 for 2 after 10 overs, with Gayle already back in the dugout....the Lankans had planned well for him & had choked him out for almost nothing. Mahela was leading with inspiration & his bowlers were spot on as per plan......it looked as if the West Indies had crumbled......but for one warrior, Marlon Samuels....the stony faced 'never give up' Jamaican. He counter attacked the Lankan bowling & singled out Malinga (arguably one of the best T20 bowler) taking 50 runs off  his 3 overs, stunning the rapturous home crowd into silence, & pulled off one of the most amazing turnarounds the game has witnessed, as he amassed 78 invaluable runs in just 56 deliveries....one of the sixes he hit cleared 108 meters, the longest in this tournament.........with Sammy lustily hitting at the end, the Windies has added 105 from their final 10 overs....it was simply incredible.....137 runs on board at the end of the innings meant......it was at least fight on.....
The Lankans needed a good start & they faltered...Dilshan bowled for nought by Rampaul, & the Windies had tasted blood, as the crowd went into a stunned silence !!! Mahela & Sanga started to consolidate, as Bravo dropped Mahela at deep backward square leg off Samuels.....at the end of 9 overs, the Lankans looked well under control, with score reading 47 for 1, though runs were hard to come by. Sammy brought back Badree & he removed Sanga, caught by Pollard in the deep....the Windies had breached the Lankan defence!! What followed was mayhem, as runs choked & the Lankan batsmen succumbed to the ever building pressure.......two needless run outs were clear testimony to this & at the end of 15th over, the score read a shocking 72 for 7.....still 66 runs required off 30 deliveries.....all top order batting back in the dug out. Kulasekara bludgeoned 22 runs of the next over off Rampaul, as the crowd came back to life, but it was far too steep for his capabilities.....Narine had him caught in the deep in the very next over & the Lankans innings finally folded for 101 runs.....the Windies had slayed the mighty Lankans by 36 runs.....it was indeed incredible.....probably once in a lifetime....certainly so for this team !!!
The Lankans had done well in the first phase of the match.....Mahela had managed his resources well 7 the team looked hungry for success......Ajantha Mendis was on a dream spell, getting 4 wickets for 12 runs....but the Windies managed to wrest the initiative & momentum back as Samuels & Sammy launched a counter attack.....it turned out to be a knockout punch....the Lankans in reply choked under pressure....
This Windies team, has looked a unit....a compelling unit of match winners..........
Calypso music came alive & how.....looking forward to the resurgence of a Super Power.....for the sake of the game...for the sake of the flair.....for the sake of raw talent.....its been a long long wait.....
