Port of Spain, Oct 17: West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo after returning home, said the team's World Cup triumph was due since a long time.

'Team was confident of winning T20 WC'

The last time West Indies won an international tournament was in 1979 under Clive Lloyd's captaincy, while the latest tournament that Windies won has been the Champions Trophy in 2004.

But a World Cup triumph was due since 33 years, as the team faced numerous issues ever since the World Cup winning team made way for youngsters.

"It's long overdue. This format T20 suits most of us and it's good that we can actually dominate in this format of the game."

Bravo, who was a part of the T20 World Cup winning team, felt the team could achieve this feat, since there was no pressure on the Carribean side.

"We went into the World Cup not under any pressure," Bravo was quoted as saying by CMC.

The all-rounder further added saying that the players were focusing on one game at a time, which helped them achieve the feat.

"They cast us as favourites but we, as players, take it as one game at a time. It's good to go into a tournament as favourites, but also better to live up to expectations and actually come out on top," Bravo said, who scored 134 runs off 5 matches in World T20 at a strike rate of 118.58.

Bravo also felt that the team had a lot of confidence in them to win the T20 World Cup.

"We always had that self-belief that we're going to do well. We have a very good team and once our players click at the right time, there's no stopping us," he said.

Moreover, it had been a long time since we saw all these players in the team, as a ocuple of players had some issues with the board, while Samuels was banned for a couple of years.

The T20 World Cup winning team has showed that West Indies are a dangerous side when the entire team performs well.

"It's good to see all of us actually in one team, come and put our heads down and actually win a title for the West Indies," concluded Bravo.
