A cricket video for Cricket World TV about the latest cricket news as we look back at the final of the ICC World Twenty20 2012 in Colombo.
A remarkable match was dominated by the performance of West Indian all-rounder Marlon Samuels. He struck a magnificent 78 in 56 balls, including three fours and five sixes to hand his side a winning target, which hardly looked likely as they slumped to 32 for two in the 10th over.
Ajantha Mendis took four for 12 and although Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara batted well together, Sri Lanka quickly found themselves under pressure and were eventually bowled out for 101, Sunil Narine taking three for nine.
The West Indies last won a trophy in 2002 when they won the Champions Trophy while you have to go as far back as 1979 for the last time they won a World Cup.
