The West Indies players, from the Lord's balcony, witnessed the Pakistanis make a mess out of chasing 150 against Sri Lanka.
Once Fidel Edwards and Dwayne Bravo restricted the powerful Indian batting line up to only 153, Chris Gayle must have told his batsmen only one thing.
"Don't do what Pakistan did!"
Gayle's troops did just that; what Pakistan did not, and raced to victory with 7 wickets and 8 deliveries to spare.
At the forefront of that victory was one Dwayne Bravo, who I reckon displayed one of the best allround performances in a T20 international.
4-38 with the ball followed by a 36-ball, match winning, unbeaten 66!
Some innings that was, and he had great support from Lendl Simmons.
The West Indies' chances may not rely solely on Gayle after all.
This is a HUGE victory for the West Indies in the context of the potential dynamics of Group E in the Super 8s.
If you thought that India and South Africa would have a cake-walk to the semi finals, you need to think again.
This is quite an upset and can turn this Group E upside down.
West Indies take on South Africa tomorrow and will surely turn out in Buoyant mood.
While India will take on England in a couple of days, in a game that England would not want to lose.
Another few upsets in the offing?
Who knows, but this World Twenty20 continues to throw suprises.
