It was a classic match on April 3, 2016 when West Indies defeated England in the final over to clinch the T20 World Cup title.




Once the match was over, team captain Darren Sammy gave a heartfelt speech in which he expressed how difficult it was for the team just to be part of the tournament.

From financing their own kits, to facing undeserved criticism, the team had faced it all before they became the ‘Champions’ on Sunday night.

But despite their hardships the team still managed to make a donation to Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata.



The donation was made by West Indies team manager Rawl Lewis and a tweet about the same was made a few hours before the team took to the field to play the final match.


The team later that day also remembered the victims of the ‘Kolkata flyover collapse’ by wearing black armbands.
