October 6, 2012 was a big day for West Indian Cricket fans, as they managed to lay their hands on a world championship trophy, winning the ICC world Twenty 20 cricket tournament held in Sri Lanka. Captain Darren Sammy called it the best moment of his life and something he will treasure for its remainder.
Winning the world cup, has allowed Sammy and his men to prove to critics that West Indies cricket is still alive, and given a chance, they can still beat any team in the world. Marlon Samuels, took on Sri Lankan pace bowler Lasith Malinga to top score for the Caribbean team, scoring 78 vital runs out of his teams total of 137. Although not as high as other scores in the tournament, Sammy mentioned that his team had a belief that they would win, even though Sri Lanka would give them a good fight.
Sammy answered his critics by performing well with bat and ball throughout the tournament, replying to people who questioned his place in the side. In the post final interview he mentioned that even Christ was crucified without fault and that he was nothing in comparison.
In parting Sammy spoke of how the issues plaguing his team were now dead and buried.
