On at the present time 8 years in the past, England in spite of everything ended their trophy drought, because the Paul Collingwood-led crew lifted the ICC WT20 in West Indies after beating arch opponents Australia by means of 7 wickets.This was once England’s first ICC trophy, after dropping 3 one-day International Cup finals – in 1979, 1987, 1992 and one ICC Champions Trophy ultimate in 2004. The crew had a powerful match, and Kevin Pietersen performed a key position on the earth beating crew, selecting up the ‘Participant of the match’ award.
The explosive batsman ended the match as the second one easiest run-getter with 248 runs in 6 fits, which integrated two half-centuries.
Within the ultimate, Australia was once installed by means of England and have been limited to 147/6 of their allocated 20 overs. Ryan Sidebottom took two wickets, conceding most effective 26 runs.
Australia have been suffering at 45/four and not in point of fact controlled to get going. David Hussey and Cameron White stitched in combination a 50-run partnership, after which Michael Hussey scored a quick-fire 17 so as to add some respectability to the ranking. David Hussey was once the easiest scorer with 59 runs.
England reached the objective very easily with 3 overs to spare, wicket-keeper Craig Kieswetter and Kevin Pietersen scored 63 and 47 respectively, and added 111 for the second one wicket.
The duo have been in particular brutal at the Australian bowling pair of Shane Watson and Shaun Tait. Watson conceded 42 runs in his 3 overs, and Tait 28 in the similar selection of overs.
Captain Paul Collingwood scored the successful runs for England because the crew lifted the WT20 trophy.
Until date, that is still the one ICC Trophy which the crew has received.
