Prime Minister of Grenada Tillman Thomas says the world has been put on notice of a resurgence in West Indies cricket following their 36 run win over host nation Sri Lanka in the World Twenty/20 final.
In a congratulatory message to the team following Sundayís dramatic final, the Grenadian Prime Minister says the win will stimulate greater regional interest in the sport.
It was the first world title for the West Indies since the 50-over World Cup triumph under Clive Lloyd in 1979.
Prime Minister Thomas says he believes the remarkable victory will stimulate greater interest in cricket in the region.
The West Indies, restricted to 137 for 6 after electing to bat, hit back to bowl Sri Lanka out for 101 and silence a sell-out crowd of 35,000 at the Premadasa stadium.
