Joginder Sharma, who bowled the last over in 2007 T20 World Cup final, was applauded by ICC on Saturday.


Joginder is currently working as Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) in Haryana and is on duty to fight against coronavirus pandemic.

ICC took to Twitter to hail India’s T20 World Cup final hero and wrote: “2007: #T20WorldCup hero. 2020: Real world hero.”


“In his post-cricket career as a policeman, India’s Joginder Sharma is among those doing their bit amid a global health crisis,” ICC added.


Earlier, Joginder – who is currently posted in Hisar during the 21-day lockdown period in the country, took to Twitter and wrote: “*Prevention is the only cure for Coronavirus, Let’s be together and fight with this Pandemic situation..Please cooperate with us* Jai Hind.”

Joginder was the hero of India’s historic win over Pakistan in the 2007 T20 World Cup final as he dismissed Misbah-ul-Haq on the third delivery of his over, guiding MS Dhoni & Co. to lift the trophy.
