Indian Cricket team has been crowned the World Champions in the shortest version of cricket.
24 September'2007 will be remembered for a long time to come. It will be cherished by Indian fans as it was achieved with a win over their arch rivals Pakistan.
What a thriller of a match.... Pakistan tottering at one stage and recovering to come fraction close to winning the finals. But Indians just kept their cool and one fatal mistake of the day happened to bring down the curtains on the finale.
This young team was expected to make up the numbers at the Twenty20 WC. There were no expectations or pressure on the players to prove themselves. Though there were some who did have a point or two to prove for their return to national side.
If the batsman were scintillating, the bowlers were not far behind. With young and strong legs, the fielders were atheletic on the field and backed the bowlers to the hilt.
It was a complete team effort. There were people who were ready to raise their hands when given opportunity. India played the SA without the star - Yuvraj of the previous game and Rohit Sharma stepped in to do the job. Today India were without Shewhag, and Yuvraj & Dhoni failed to take off, but Gambhir & Sharma played the knocks of their life to keep India in hunt.
This young team will cherish the moments for their lifetime now.
CHAK DE INDIA has become CHAK DIYA India
