India vs South Africa – ICC Men’s T20 WorldCup Final

India won by 7 runs.

India won the Twenty20 title by defeating South Africa in a thrilling match.

India ended their 13-year wait for a world title by defeating South Africa in a thrilling T20 World Cup final.

Chasing 177, the Proteas needed 26 off 24 balls, but Henrik Klaasen’s wicket of 27 off 52 turned the game dramatically in India’s favor.

Arsdeep Singh conceded just four runs in the closing over, leaving Hardik Pandya to defend 16 from the last over.

David Miller was sensationally caught by Surya Kumar Yadav at long-off for 21 on the first ball before India wrapped up a seven-run win.

This sparked jubilant scenes among the Indian players and fans in Barbados, including superstar Virat Kohli, who scored 76 runs in 59 to take his team to 176-7.

This is India’s second T20 title, having won the inaugural tournament in 2007, and first World Cup in any format since the 2011 50-over event.

It was a horrendous defeat for South Africa that brought back all the pain of the World Cup past.
