West Indies Make Australia Shed Tears in ICC World 20Twenty


guyana-england-west-indies-cricket-2009-3-22-17-30-47Seeing Australia get bulldozed by the super underdogs, West Indies, and in particular, by Chris Gayle’s massive hitting, made my weekend. Australia, batting first, was bowled out by The Windies for a respectable 169 for 7. But Gayle and Fletcher blasted the Australian bowling with the first wicket, Fletcher, going when the Windies score was on 133 in the 11th over. Gayle was dismissed for 88 in the 14th over and made his 88 in 50 balls with 6 -fours and 6- sixes. By the time Gayle was dismissed  Australia was already worrying about being beaten by Sri Lanka.

fireworks_6_2008_2009 _450Knowing the variable ability of the West Indies, it is possible to never again see this level of performance by them in 20Twenty, or any form of cricket, for years. But fans hope, and some pray, the team will go with the momentum. It is not very often West Indies beat Australia much less pulverize them so today we celebrate as if it is the last time we will ever win anything.

  1. oh gosh boy …. dat match was da bomb ….. Chris Gayle is da bomb ….. dem braids was da bomb ….. I love Chris Gayle!!!!!!! 🙂

    • Yep, scene. The match was de bomb and once Chris Gayle is in form the opposing team quivers. But Jumbie is totally correct in his analysis. Our boys love only one thing more than the game…make that two things 🙂

  2. Oh man I saw that match. Chris Gayle single handedly won the match for West Indies. The powerful hitting by him was a treat to watch, It was after a long a time I saw West Indies play like that. Fun.

    Latter in the day India blasted Bangladesh, I hope we’re able to defend the champions tag.

    • Anytime a team as feared as Australia is beaten the rest of the World celebrates. It’s not out of hate but hope. The way the West Indies did it was the best way possible.

      India played with their usual precision and it was good to see.

  3. Great goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you are just too excellent.
