This time the momentum of such a sharply tuned team proved unstoppable, and England, captained by Collinwood beat a fine Australian side with overs to spare.
England won the T20 world title, and have looked every part a world beating team throughout the tournament. Now that really is quite something. We even managed to have a paternity leave and still romp home. Well done the Lads. And Captain Fantastic? …Just a bit!

When I went to the Windies v England Twenty20 at the Queens Park Oval in 2009 it was a sell out – it sold out far in advance.
Not all touring sides are equal and a very poor turnout watched the West Indies international Twenty20 v Zimbabwe. The Windies lost, Otis has got his work cut out.
And Twenty20 is no guaranteed cash cow.
