BARBADOS: England breezed through in the summit clash on Sunday, defeating Australia to become the 2010 World Twenty20 champions.

After being put in to bat, the Aussies were restricted to 147/6, with only David Hussey striking a face saving 59.

England was able to pick up early wickets (with the Aussies standing at 8/3 in the third over) which greatly impacted the outcome of the match.

For their part, England's Kevin Pietersen and Craig Kieswetter decimated the Australian bowlers, building a striking partnership which crossed 100 runs.

England piled on the necessary runs to win the tournament with both wickets and overs to spare.
