London:

Britain's new Prime Minister David Cameron sent his congratulations to England's World Twenty20 winning team on Monday.

Cameron said he hoped the seven-wicket victory over Australia in Barbados would be the "start of a great summer of sport for England", ahead of events including the football World Cup in South Africa, which starts in June.

"Congratulations to Paul Collingwood and the England Twenty20 team on becoming world champions for the first time with a magnificent victory over Australia," he said in comments relayed by his official spokesman.

"Let's hope this marks the start of a great summer of sport for England."

England cruised to victory with three overs to spare yesterday following a second-wicket stand of 111 between South African-born duo Craig Kieswetter and Kevin Pietersen.
