Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh and others relive India’s thrilling win over Pakistan in 2007 T20 World Cup final

Posted On / /

12 years have passed since the evening of September 24, 2007, when India won the first-ever World Cup in the shortest format of the game.

Against all odds, the young Indian team led by MS Dhoni made its way into the last-four riding on most famous wins over the likes of South Africa and England, and then secured an incredible victory against the mighty Australians in the semifinal.

After electing to bat first in the grand finale against Pakistan, Gautam Gambhir, who had been one of India’s top performers in the tournament, scored 75 runs as Dhoni’s side were restricted to 157-5 in their stipulated 20 overs.

However, India bowled superbly to secure a thrilling five-run win, and Sreesanth’s catch to dismiss Misbah-ul-Haq for the final wicket has since become one of the most memorable moments in the nation’s cricketing history.

On Tuesday, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh and other cricketers from the winning squad took to Twitter to relive their fond memories of India’s triumph in the 2007 World Cup.
