To celebrate Sky Sports 25th birthday this week, we’re looking back at some of the most memorable moments from the last quarter of a century, including Paul Collingwood leading England to World Twenty20 glory in 2010. Bryan Bulaga Jersey . Watch the video above or click on this link to hear Collingwoods memories of that triumph…Group D: West Indies 60-2 (Gayle 25) beat England 191-5 (Morgan 55) by eight wickets on D/LEnglands only defeat came in their opening match - and it jarred. Debutants Michael Lumb (28 off 18) and Craig Kieswetter (26 off 14) blasted England to 66-2 off 6.3 overs before Eoin Morgan (55 off 35) and Luke Wright (45no off 27) ran amok in a devastating 95-run stand. Cavalier Chris Gayle retaliated with two sixes in a 12-ball 25 before rain had the final say in the hosts favour - Collingwood less-than-impressed with West Indies still needing 132 more off 14.1 overs. Craig Kieswetter makes an instant impact, hitting Ravi Rampaul for six Memorable moment: Morgans audacious reverse-lap for four after he and Wright (two) had plundered three sixes off as many Ravi Rampaul balls, the last a free-hit.Colly says: Kieswetter was one of the hardest hitters of a cricket ball in world cricket. I remember rifling into the boys that if a spinner was on in the first over and you want to take him down, take him down - thats your job. There was a really aggressive mind-set. It was a hard defeat to take because wed done so much that was good in the first 20 overs.Group D: England 120-8 (Morgan 45) v Ireland 14-1 - match abandonedRain ruled again at Providence Stadium again but England qualified for the Super Eights despite the washout by virtue of a higher run-rate - reward for their first-match salvo. But for a stoic 45 from former Ireland international Eoin Morgan, England might have been packing their bags as Luke Wrights 20 was the next best score. Both fell to Boyd Rankin (2-25) after Kevin OBrien and Trent Johnston (1-14) had terrorised the top-order. Eoin Morgan stands firm - and goes on the offensive - against Ireland Memorable moment: Lumb launching himself at square leg to claim a sensational diving catch to remove Paul Stirling for a duck.Colly says: We scraped through the early stages of the tournament but as soon as we got momentum, it was almost like a juggernaut getting faster and faster and nobody could stop us. Everybody settled down; everybody knew their role in the side and everybody was performing their role very well.Super Eights: Pakistan 147-9 (Yardy 2-19) lost to England 151-4 (Pietersen 73no) by six wicketsPlayer-of-the-tournament Kevin Pietersen made his first major contribution of the campaign to steer England to their first victory with three balls left after an all-round impressive display by the bowlers. Michael Yardy was the pick, returning 2-19 from his allocation - removing Mohammad Hafeez and Misbah-ul-Haq to crank up the pressure as runs proved tough to come by. Kamran Akmal and Shahid Afridi look on as Kevin Pietersen goes aerial Memorable moment: Shahid Afridis calamitous calling - running himself out first ball with a suicidal single into the covers off Yardy.Colly says: You hardly ever get a spinner bowling three overs on a trot in T20 cricket now but I used to be able to hand the ball to Graeme Swann and Michael Yardy and say I know whats going to happen in the next eight overs - theyll stem the flow of runs and take a few wickets. Everybody used to say how can Yardy get away with not going for many runs but he was a wily campaigner.Super Eights: England 168-7 (Pietersen 53) beat South Africa 129 (Sidebottom 3-23) by 39 runsSouth Africa were swept aside in emphatic fashion, like Pakistan succumbing to the potent Swann-Yardy combination, which returned 5-55. JP Duminy (39 off 25 balls) ploughed more or less a lone furrow after Kieswetter (41 off 42) and Pietersen (53 off 33) chalked up 94 for Englands second wicket. Michael Yardy celebrates taking the wicket of Herschelle Gibbs Memorable moment: Pietersen reaching his 50 off 30 balls with a flamingo four two balls after pulling a slower Dale Steyn delivery onto the roof of one of the Bridgetown stands.Colly says: Pietersen was our rock. Hes such a powerful player that he didnt have to take huge risks straight away; he was a very composed T20 player. You really do need a world-class player to stand out to win tournaments and he was the man for us.Super Eights: New Zealand 149-6 (Taylor 44) lost to England 153-7 (Morgan 40) by three wicketsEven shorn of Kevin Pietersens services - Englands No 3 having flown home to attend the birth of his son - England had too much might for a New Zealand outfit propelled to a challenging total by Ross Taylors sparkling 44. At 66-4 Englands hopes were in the balance despite a feisty knock from Lumb (32 off 21) before Tim Bresnan (23no off 11) ensured Eoin Morgans gutsy 40 wasnt in vain. Tim Bresnan stares down his man after removing Jesse Ryder Memorable moment: Morgan showcases his sublime timing with a one-handed maximum off Scott Styris over long on thats recorded at 84-metres long.Colly says: We knew we were going to miss a big player but our bowlers were doing so well - we went on a nine-game unbeaten run and didnt go for over 149 runs, which is ludicrous - that we were confident wed knock off the runs.Semi-final: Sri Lanka 128-6 (Mathews 58) lost to England 132-3 (Pietersen 42no) by seven wicketsSri Lanka failed to make their second successive final as Englands power-packed top-order made light work of chasing down a modest target, carried by Angelo Mathews 58 off 45 balls. Kieswetter (39) and Lumb (33) knocked off 68 runs in the first 8.1 overs before Pietersen, back in the fold, eased England into the final with a forceful 42no off 26 balls. Michael Lumb steers the ball away past Kumar Sangakkara Memorable moment: Chamara Kapugedera took advice to throw the bat too literally, his willow flying out of his hands and through square leg as he miscued a pull off Stuart Broad.Colly says: The team was a real pleasure to captain because I could say guys, you know exactly what youre doing; its working against every team; just go about your business. I was always a big believer of getting your best T20 bowlers in the side and then your main batsmen will knock the runs off.FINAL: Australia 147-6 (D Hussey 59) lost to England 148-3 (Kieswetter 63) by seven wicketsEngland romped to their first ICC global title with 18 balls remaining after Kieswetter (63 off 49) and Pietersen (47 off 31) put on 111 for the second wicket, leaving Collingwood to hit the winning runs and spark wild celebrations. That Australia recovered from 45-4 was down to David Husseys determined 59; Cameron Whites 19-ball 30 gave the innings some middle momentum but in vain. Graeme Swann and Pietersen celebrate with skipper Paul Collingwood Memorable moment: Collingwood leaping in the air and being mobbed by his on-rushing team-mates after striking Watson through midwicket for the winning runs.Colly says: It was sure euphoria. Even when we were celebrating up on the podium as a team I you are pinching yourself because its very hard to believe.
