Pakistan Twenty20 champions

Pakistan won the World Twenty20 tournament after beating Sri Lanka by eight wickets in the final.

I think Sri Lanka faltered where it mattered most after only managing 138 runs at Lord's and Pakistan managed to chase that total and lost just two wickets in the process.

Also Pakistan had eight balls to spare which suggests that maybe 10 to 20 more runs who have been enough for Sri Lanka.

But it was a good turnaround by a Pakistan team that started the tournament slowly and just managed to reach the Super 8 stage.

Also in the semis Pakistan had a shock win over South Africa who up until then seemed destined to reach the final.

In both the semi-final and final it was Shahid Afridi who played very well and was probably the difference as he made 54 not out.

For Sri Lanka, only Kumar Sangakkara had a respectable innings but with two top batsmen Tillakaratne Dilshan and Jehan Mubarak both scoring ducks it was a big challenge against an in-from Pakistan team.

So congratulations to Pakistan and I hope this will be a start for good times for the Pakistan team.
