Start of better things for Windies?

6:43 pm on 8 October 2012

The West Indies captain Darren Sammy is hoping their World Twenty20 success is just the start of their cricketing revival.

The Windies beat hosts Sri Lanka by 36 runs to pick up their first world cup title since 1979, although they did pick up the Champions Trophy in 2004.

The West Indies have been in a slump for many years and are seventh in the test rankings.

Sammy says this win will help and will hopefully be the start of things to come.
