Rise to glory

He ended up second on the list of wicket-takers grabbing 23 at a strike rate of 20.30.

He put in a Man of the Match performance against old foes England in a Super 8s match at Antigua in which he picked up 3/41 off 10 overs. In addition, he picked 4/39 off 10 overs, his best One Day International figures at the time, against a solid South African team in the semi-final at St Lucia.
