The last over of beating.
Australia are like the Yankees of cricket. Nobody likes them and they always win. Except tonight, wherein the West Indies thrashed them like a bunch of public school kids, Gangam Style. That was a vicious and amazing game with Chris Gayle paddling the Aussies like they were a canoe. The final run rate was an insurmountable 10 for a total of 205. Which, for 20 overs, is pretty insane. As much as I like to see Australia lose, for West Indies to win so dominantly is a bit terrifying. Sri Lanka will face them tomorrow, in the finals.
Australia is good, but the West Indies just batted the living daylights out of them. I could not believe it, they were hitting sixes almost every over. In the semifinal against Pakistan Sri Lanka hit none. If you watch till about 4:15 in the video above, the Windies has one over with 21 runs. It’s madness. Awesomely entertaining, if only Sri Lanka weren’t facing them next.
