    India lift T20 WC after 17 years

    India defeated SA by 17 runs

    This is the second T20 trophy India won

In a thrilling finale, India emerged victorious in the T20 World Cup 2024, defeating South Africa by a narrow margin of 7 runs. Winning the toss and opting to bat first, India set a formidable target of 176/7. The innings was anchored by a stellar performance from Virat Kohli, who scored a crucial 76 off 59 balls, showcasing his experience and composure.

Defending the total, India faced a significant challenge as Heinrich Klaasen’s blistering 52 off 27 balls threatened to take the game away. However, Jasprit Bumrah turned the tide with his exceptional bowling, claiming 2 wickets for just 18 runs in his 4 overs. His disciplined performance was pivotal in stemming the South African surge.

The match’s climax saw South Africa needing 16 runs off the final over. Under immense pressure, the Proteas faltered, largely due to a stunning catch by Suryakumar Yadav at the ropes, dismissing the dangerous David Miller and setting the tone for the final moments.

This victory marks India’s first T20 World Cup win since the inaugural tournament in 2007, ending a 17-year drought. The triumph is particularly poignant as it likely marks the swansong for cricketing legends Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, along with head coach Rahul Dravid. The trio’s contributions have been instrumental in shaping Indian cricket, making this victory a fitting tribute to their illustrious careers.
