When West indies win at a moment every indian cricket fan  hopes were broken to watch india in World T20 Final And Win the Trophy Second Time.Indian Team Played Very well in yesterday’s game Rohit and Rahane Give good Start to Game after rohit lbw by badree all indian fan were upset of wicket and after rohit kohli played well with rahane and dhoni and make a big score for team India to defend against West indies. India bowled well  in Beginning with brilliant Bowled to Gayle in Very First ball of Jasprit Bumrah. The outfield Was wet after first innings and spinners cant bowl with Wet ball and some point of time India Lose because of no balls and Yuvi’s Absence in team.The West Indies players and the crowd have all the reasons to be excited. Both the men’s and women’s team will play the ICC World T20 final at the Eden Garden’s on Sunday.

At the post-match presentation,MS Dhoni said:

“I knew it was a bad toss to lose. The dew starts setting in during the second innings. Our first few overs weren’t bad but then spinners came in and they didn’t have much on offer. Our spinners don’t have a history of bowling well with the wet ball. One of the World Cups, we were knocked out because we didn’t bowl well with the wet ball. Other than the two no-balls I’m not very disappointed with the bowlers. There wasn’t much on offer. I wanted the fast bowlers to make a game out of it and give the part-timers a 5 run cushion and then see whatever happens at the death. The conditions were tough for them. It’s a hard format. Usually the games are quite close. Only one or two games you will cruise through the opposition. Usually it gets down to the final over. Yes it is draining. But we are used to it. In the IPL, we face many such games which go till the end.”

Darren Sammy said: “We knew it was going to be a massive step, our fifth step in this tournament against a very good Indian team. I must commend the whole team. They came at us in the Powerplay, we stuck to it. I knew it was a 200 wicket. Halfway in the game, I told my team they are 10 runs short. Even when we lost Gayle, the way Simmons and Charles played and Russell put the finishing touches, I’m very proud. I was praying to win the toss, and surprisingly I have won 5 out of 5. We knew it was a chasing ground. We were inspired by the under-19 team [that won the World Cup] and the ladies earlier today. Now we have 2 West Indian teams in the semi-final. It means a lot for the people in the Caribbean islands. We said before the tournament started, Chris is our best T20 player but we have 15 match-winners. Today Charles, Simmons, and Russell took responsibility against a very good Indian team. We just believed. I can’t describe it in one word. At the starting of the game, we said this is ours for the taking. I’m very excited. One step left. On Sunday we have to take that step the best way we can.”

If there was one man who was the luckiest tonight it was Simmons. Simmons survived not just once but thrice, he caught  twice but he was lucky both the time and given No-ball and then when Jadeja caught him in the deep his foot touched the ropes and it was a six. He won the Man of the match award for his brilliant knock.

After a brilliant performance Lendl Simmons said in his Speech

“I slept over the flight [referring to his jet lag]. I got a call in the morning after the Afghanistan game to come over, if I am fit. I came under pressure and had come here for a reason – to deliver and I delivered. I enjoy batting here. The fast outfield also helps. Yes [rating it as one of his best innings]. In a tough situation. I didn’t play in the final [World T20 2012] in Sri Lanka and I almost missed out on this one. 180-190 is a par score and with the power-hitters we have, the guys believed we could chase it. I got three chances and things went my way and I cashed in.”
