Sticks in the craw a little bit seeing Gayle choked with the magnitude of his team's achievement despite being so thoroughly atrocious with the bat, except for competent little cameos from Ronnie and Chanders at the end.
It's been said before, but what a shame Pak couldn't have been competent last Sunday and spared us this nonsense.
Hope the Saffies win tomorrow, can't be doing with finishing bottom of the group.

England were marginally hard done by D/L but the idea that they "outplayed" the Windies is ludicrous. If the Windies had 20 overs they would have batted differently and it's unlikely they would have been 45 for 5. And over the course of the tournament they were the better team; quite competitive in their defeats and without an embarassment like the Netherlands game. England wasn't really semi-final material.
I vaguely remember a stat that the team batting 2nd wins 60% of games. Dunno if someone cricket-stats-site-savvy can confirm.
Oh ffs TMS going on about England being big favourites during the chase. England were NEVER even favourite let alone heavy favourite.
Only positives from this is hopefully the likes of Collingwood and Wright will never be selected again.
