Pakistan is the Champion of Twenty20 World Cup 2009

Pakistan cricket team pulled off an excellent 8-wicket victory over Sri Lanka, and thus, winning the second edition of the twenty20 world cup on Sunday. No doubt, the triumph in the twenty20 world cup would boost up Pakistan cricket which has been struggling for the tumultuous security condition of the country. Batting first, Sri Lanka scored 138 run losing 6 wickets, while Pakistan won the match with 8 balls left in the hand losing only 2 wickets.

The star of the match is definitely all rounder Shahid Afridi who conceded only 20 runs in his 4 overs with a wicket. Then the hard hitter smashed 54 runs off just 40 balls. In Sri Lankan innings, Captain Kumar Sangakkara played anunbeaten innings of 64 off just 52 runs. In the end, Mathews contributed with 35 runs from just 24 balls. Abdul Razzaq picked up 3 wickets for Pakistan.

Sri Lanka tried their best using their bowlers, but in the end, Pakistan emerged winners. Mindis was not impressive at all today, while Muralitharan was not as much authoritative as he had been in throughout the tournament. Lasith Malinga conceded only 14 runs in his 3.4 overs, but that was not enough as Pakistani batsmen showed excellent resistance, power and dominance over a strong Sri Lankan bowling side.

Dilshan was awarded the man of the series award for his 317 runs in the tournament, even though the opener got out for a duck today. Shahid Afridi got the man of the match award for his match winning performance.
