The early morning starts to matches may have kept the fans away from stadiums but the ICC still thinks that the Twenty20 World Cup in West Indies was "truly memorable" and CEO Haroon Lorgat said he was thrilled by the "enthusiastic support".

A major chunk of the matches were played as early as the 0900 hrs (local time), which meant that empty seats were quite visible except for days when the local team was in action in the event, which concluded on Sunday.

"We recognised the need to involve all the local people and we were thrilled by their turnout and enthusiastic support. I think everyone will agree that their colourful participation contributed much to the success of the tournament," Lorgat said in a statement.

"We invited the Caribbean people to 'Bring It' and they certainly did just that. The ICC is grateful to all those who attended the matches and the hundreds of millions who watched on television," he added.
