-(A Duke Jeyaraj poem on the West Indies – England World T20 Final 2016 played in Eden Gardens Kolkata on 3 April, 2016 with a Wow News at the end)
After a dot ball with 19 needed off 7, would the Windies rise from the ashes like a phoenix?
Carlos Brathwaite answered that question, in that nail-biting final over, hitting a six, six, six and a six!
The problems the West Indies had in over-hauling England’s fighting 155, he did miraculously fix!
Six over deep backward square, Six over long on – they were all there in the marvellous six mix!
Bowler Ben Stokes slumping in disappointment post each brutal shot – that made a sad pix!
“The only team to win the World T20 twice” – for the Windies that was new prefix!
Post this Surreal Final Captain Sammy talked about praying to Living One on the crucifix!
Jesus’ great Calvary-demonstrated love for us, sinners – nothing on earth can nix!
If you come to Jesus now, this will be yours: a joy nothing can ever eclipse!
