When the west Indies win

One thing I love about the west Indians is their ability to enjoy life. Their win in the t20 cricket match yesterday against the host country srilanka set the stage for celebrations unlimited once again. Congratulations to them. Let them continue the winning streak. This win and the celebrations took me back to my younger days west Indian cricket team under the captaincy of  Clive Lloyd. Greenidge and Haynes always opened the innings. Both were equally strong and was very difficult to get them out. Once anyone of them gets out, the real king of cricket Vivian Richards comes in to bat, followed by the captain Clive Lloyd himself. Then comes Dujon the wicket keeper and Gomes the one and only pain bowler in the west Indies team then.  The bowling side comprised of  Andy Roberts, Malcolm marshal, Michael holding and Joel garner. This battery of  fast bowlers was the nightmare of any batting line up in the world. Then the decline started. Now in this win in the world t20 cricket tournament, I see the beginning of the end of this downward trend of west Indies cricket which makes me  happy. I want to see the west Indians celebrations of victory again and again. That is quite inspiring.
