England clinch ICC World Twenty20 Cup 2010

On Sunday, England played Australia in the ICC World Twenty20 Cup 2010 finals. England so far have never & ever won any kind of ICC tournaments till Sunday. This was supposed to be the 2nd match for them to enter into a ICC finals of any kind. On the other side, Australia have also not won a ICC World Twenty20 Cup till date. So it was a must win match for both of them.

But Australians could not stand before England. They outplayed Australia right from the start of the match. Loss of earlier wicket on Australians side was the key to success for the England. They restricted Australia to just 147 runs in 20 overs. Though England lost Michael Lumb in the early stage, Craig Kieswetter and Kevin Pietersen hit a magnificent 63 & 47 runs respectively. England chased down the target successfully in just 17 overs with 18 balls in spare. Now England's dream has come true, as they have won their first ICC trophy & have created an history.

I am an die hard fan of India, but India didn't even enter semis. Australia has already won 4 world cups & look very strong at the moment.
But England had never won any kind of World Cup so i supported England. Now i am happy for England winning the world cup :)
